Re: Import Motorbikes from EU (12 months limit surpassed)

.... and the story continues...

I called my insurer and with the Stammnummer provided in the 13.20A document from the customs office I got a Insurance proposal. (This proposal is notified by the insurer to the Strassenverkehrsamt directly without you doing anything)

Then I went with:
1.-EU Tech specification for the bike.
2.-EU Street Permit
3.-13.20A Document
4.-Insurance policy went directly from the insurer
5.-The bike is still insured with my EU insurance. And I guess is needed..

to the Strassenverkehrsamt to get an Appointment for the MFK.
They told me that there were some information that was not present in the EU Tech Spec document of the bike so I had to go to an Authorized Engineer to fill a document called "Selbsimport". And they gave me a paper with the MFK appointment.

The Authorized Engineer (Don't need to be one from the official dealer of your brand in Switzerland, I tell you that, because I did it in a not Oficial Garage) will fill out the document/date/sign. You most likely need to pay for them to fill out the document but they didn't charge me anything for it. I would like to suggest to buy the registration plate holder to them if they are so kind not to charge you anything .

.... and the time goes by....

Day before the MFK.... Clean your bike!!!

MFK Appointment.
1.-Be on time or earlier
2.-Get eveything in good shape (all the docs you got).
3.-Let them do the rest.
4.-After a successful MFK go to the Strassenverkehrsamt offices and show the papers filled out by the Strassenverkehrsamt engineer
5.-Get your plates and your swiss bike documentation
6.-Put the plate into the plate holder
7.-Buy a Vignette (and stick it under the seat)
8.-Enjoy the bike

My bike is in Switzerland. NOW I am here!!!!

I has taken more than a year and a half, but today the sun shines.

I hope this is useful for anyone else...
