Never thought of Canada as anything other than a brother to US. Rode a lot of rallies with my Canada friends and had lots of good times. Used to go fishing there once each year but got so mad at the long line at the border and treated us like **** that i don't go back anymore. And that was years ago before all the current things happened, and that was comeing back into the US. We even had a couple guys in our BMW club from Canada as they liked to have fun with our bunch. I wouldn't let any feeling get hurt from her remark as i think most US and Canadian people feel like we are the closest allies and friends. I sure feel better buying things from Canada than anywhere else outside of the US. Consider them one of us and i am a disabled vet and realize they fought side by side with us. Just don't let one person bother you and think about all of us that get along so well on this site. Ride, my friend and enjoy.
