,,uk visitor buying a bike....

Greetings all,

I am planning on visiting your amazing country yet again and this time buying a motorcycle to do some camping and fishing......( it has to be a BMW, and a certain model too)....as a visitor on a tourist visa, can anyone advise if your dmv in your particular state will give me problems registering my new bundle of joy? Some states will NOT entertain a foreigner registering a motorbike ( or car, by the way) Georgia is one, for eg.....I will be arriving in Florida, but do not mind traveling to collect the bike wherever I find the right one. I plan on leaving the bike in storage and using it on subsequent visits....to elaborate, I have seen one in Colorado, and another one in Arkansas...so I jump on the Greyhound, train or fly and collect and pay for the bmw....however if I cannot register, title the bike in those states, I have to ride it to a different state and do the paperwork there then? Can I get a temporary tag to move it, or do I have to transport it? All seems a bit bewildering to me!!?? help.....!!!

In the last year I've had 2 Brit's come here, buy a bike, title & insure it, & take off on a trip, with no problems. So Florida is pretty easy for that.
Cheapest insurance seems to be thru Progressive.

Hope that helps
Doug

Don't know when your trip will be, but if you buy my R1100GS Ill store it in my garage for you and pick you up at the airport. It's ready to go anywhere!

Of all the states I've lived in long enough to work with their DMVs (VA, MA, FL, CA, CO) FL is by far the most easy going. No direct experience with registering while in country on a visa, but I think you'll be ok. We have a large number of non-US citizens living here part time and it's a boon to the economy. This is not lost on the state government. You may need a FL address to put on the paperwork, I can always help there if you like.

Easy Peasy

I just did the paperwork on car I a sold to a Brazilian National. Insurance, Florida address, copy of home country DL, and Passport is all it takes .
