Re: Registering non-road legal vehicle in Swiss

So if I follow correctly this is a racing bike that is not road legal and you have no intention of taking it on the road. Thus it will be transported to racing events and not driven ?

So the only insurance you might need is against theft or third party damage or that sort of stuff . Just call your insurer and discuss it with them .

"Swiss" phonetically is at least an official name for the country.
No it isn't and never has been. Swiss is an adjective which describes the people and the country. It's also the official name of an airline.
In English the correct name of the country is Switzerland.

Which is what? If you mean the English name, which isn't even an official name, well you yourself don't use English names for some places in Switzerland.

"Swiss" phonetically is at least an official name for the country.

Just free your mind and get over it.
LOL, when did that happen?

Free his mind and get over it?
Switzerland offers four official names for itself. Have the respect to use one of them.

I think he means "Swiss" sounds like "Schweiz" or "Suisse"... purely a guess...

Could it be that Landers' french is so bad that Suisse sounds like Swiss?

Follow your own advice, dude. Swiss may refer to:
  • the adjectival form of Switzerland
  • Swiss people

Have you ever thought of moving to Swede? Natcherally, you're excused if you're from the USandA

The English name of Switzerland is a compound containing Switzer, an obsolete term for the Swiss, which was in use during the 16th to 19th centuries.

In other languages is a joke, but if the mistake is made in English the usual suspects appear to give a lesson about the ignorance of English.

And break the forum rules in the process. I had the impression (hope?) there was some movement towards live-and-let-live over the past few weeks.

When correcting or commenting on the English written by others, take into account the various levels of ability and local variations of the language. Constructive correction or criticism is fine, but pedantry or derision, especially to score points in a debate is not acceptable.

Then it is Swissland, not Swiss.

Please note: do not confuse with Swissair, a defunct company, and Swisswater, which is called Evian if you feel ambitious after yesterday Swissfootball win.

Yes, seriously. Obviously you can neither take a hint nor understand the links you post. You, personally, have triggered my unhealthy decision to join the SVP to further my great ambition: initiative to restrict permits to obtuse immigrants. Be warned! Soon you’ll be picketed with “England, go home to English” placards every morning

Don't be mean, OP can't go home, he doesn't speak English. He calls this country Swiss.

Thanks a lot for this again!

They do a simplfied Carnet called CARNET DE PASSAGE that is being accepted in Italy. The main diff vs ATA carnet is that they dont require a deposit.
