I'm considering going to the Lunatic Fringe Rally before Spokane. I'd be crossing the border just south of Winnipeg. I understand that I'll need a certified birth certificate and my driver's license - how long should I expect the crossing to take there? Will they actually inspect my bike?
I would be spending a lot of time on Canada's hwy 1. Can anyone advise me on the road? Is it 2 or 4 lane? What is the speed limit?
Also, as far as converting money - is it like Europe in that there are exchanges all over the place or will I have to make a stop in a larger city to exchange lots of cash all at once? How much is a gallon of gas?
Anything else I need to know?
