I'd rather not be toting cash money around, especially if the bike is somewhat expensive.

Seller can sign over the Title and fill out his portion on the Title Application as the buyer is handing over the check. As for BoS... couple of times ago, I went to the County Assesor's office to register a new bike I just bought, the clerk gave me back the Bill of Sale and didn't even look at it. Still a good idea to draft one up and print two copies - for seller and buyer to keep a signed copy each.

If I have to get into a gun fight just to sell a bike, I'd rather just put it on consignment, which I did for my last bike. The hassle free selling was well worth the commission.

I'm all for CHL, but I'd rather ask the buyer/sell to meet at the parking lot of a big bank branch, and tell him it's for his protection as well as mine. If the guy balks at the idea, I probably don't need to be doing business withe the dude.
