In the cases for these people that never title: if you sell your bike you have the right to keep your plates for this very purpose that they could ride around, run tolls, etc. with plates that are still registered in your name. Best to keep the plates and make sure you fill out the seller's form and send it in to the state so they have record that you made the sale.

When I went to the tax collectors office they said because the guy I purchased the bike from had not gotten the bike put in his name, that I could not get to the title transferred into my name and I would have to get a bonded title.

What a nightmare - obviously I didn't realize at the time that he couldn't just sign the back..... anyone have any great words of wisdom or advice on the best way to approach this situation.
super easy.... I just did this about 2 months ago. I copied this from my other post

Actually I just did one on my last bike. it was really easy..... It was another e'd up title. But I had a title. from what I was told, id you don't have a title you need a BOS from the person you bought it from.

This was the process I had to do.
1) Go to DOT(washington street) have them check it out. Fill out some paper work.
2) They had to do some searching then prepare some paper work for me.( i was there about 4:30 and they called me the next day by 10 am for me to pick it up)
3) Take that paper work to an insurance company to get a bond($100) took about 10 minutes to do the paper work. I needed to show my DL and ins. on the bike.
4) Take the paper work to the to the title place and transfer it like a regular title.
5) They said it'll take 4-6 weeks regular titles take 2-3 weeks. Actually only took 3 weeks
In short this can all be done in a few hours. it wasn't hard at all.

thats just what I had to go through.

hope this might shed some light on it for you.
