Title/Registering a new MC purchase out of state

I just purchased a new motorcycle out of state and called the Harris county tax office to ask about the documents required for getting the bike registered. He told me that I need a MSO along with other documents. The dealer that I bought the bike from did not send me a MSO. All I have is bill of sale, 90 day temp tag and Odometer disclosure document.

So my question for folks who purchase a motorcycle/car out of state, did you get a MSO to title the car/MC or can I just walk in with the documents that I have?

I had to get a copy of the title when I registered from Cali. The document had to have the lienholder information. MSO doesn't have this unless they do your financing. State transfer fee was like $150 and I needed to do an out of state inspection as well.

2yrs ago, I bought an New-Old-Stock S83 that was never titled/registered. It rolled off the truck in front of my house with less than 1 mile on the clock. Yes, I got a Certificate of Origin from the seller, who is not a motorcycle dealer but a powersport dealer in Indiana that also sells lawn and garden equipment. That means that, as a powersport dealer, he could legally transfer the MSO to me. An individual without a dealer license cannot do that. He/she must title/register it before the vehicle can be sold again.

Yes, you absolutely need an MSO or Title. Not only that, but you need to have the seller fill out his part in 130U and sign it. I emailed the pdf to the seller and paid for him to fedex the signed originals to me. My seller was real nice and everything went smoothly.

Thanks.. I can not register it in Arizona because I am a TX resident. They gave me a 90 day out of state temp tag.. I will get the Out of state inspection done this week..

Thanks Volfy. I bought the bike from a dealer. I will ask him for a MSO. Thanks for the heads up on the 130U. I will email it to him and have that filled and send it along with the MSO..

Thinking about putting a deposit on a 2014 HP4.. I change my bikes way too often, but the RC8R looks soo cool, I might just keep it for the the looks( did not ride the bike yet, so no riding impressions) and then get a HP4 Standard eventually. If I hadn't purchased the RC8R, I could have thought about the HP4 comp, but have to settle for the standard now. But technically both are same bikes except for the bling. I have more bling with the orange wheels and frame on the KTM now
