I dont really know how that affects titling a bike, just thought it had merit here.
Well, to clarify how this can be an issue: my friend, who lives in PA, purchased a left over '09 FE570 from them earlier this year. He had to apply for a rebuild title with the state, put every single piece of required gear on the bike (including the ridiculously long rear fender overhang), then take it to an enhanced inspection station, and then wait for a new title from the State. It wasn't impossible, but it sure was a lot more work, time, and cost than buying a bike with a non-offroad MSO.

Again, this was required for PA. Now if I bought the bike from NY and needed a plate here in Ohio, the process is much easier
