I am looking for a used bike.Say I find one on craig’s list and it works out. Do I pay, get a recept, title/registration signed …then what? Leave, take the paperwork to the DMV, get plates, call my insurance agent, then go get the bike??May 14, 2009 at 3:24 pm #18496megaspazParticipant
Check the dmv website @ http://www.dmv.org/motorcycle.php
It should list out all the legal requirments needed to register your vehicle.May 14, 2009 at 7:34 pm #18522Clay DowlingParticipant
Put insurance on the bike, handed the dude the money, had a friend ride it home. Went to the DMV, presented title, proof of insurance and money. Was give a plate and a tag, which I put on the bike when I got home.
That’s not entirely the way you want to do it. We took back roads home, and I had the title in hand so if we got pulled over we could show it to the officer, and hopefully they would be cool about it.
The right way to do it is to get the plates, then go pick up the bike.May 14, 2009 at 7:57 pm #18523DKParticipant
Or a friend with a truck that owes you?May 14, 2009 at 10:42 pm #18531cgwParticipant
The main reason I was asking is in the event I found what I was looking for a few hours away. I would not want to make two trips. A friend of mine may have a trailer.
