If you plan to ride the optional route into Canada and you provide us with your legal name, date of birth, citizenship and passport, Pass Card number or Michigan Enhanced Drivers License number, we will provide US CUSTOMS the information you give us, which can speed the process of re-entry into the USA considerably. PLEASE make sure the name on the application exactly matches the identification that you will use. This can help to considerably shorten your wait time at the U.S. border.
