Buying a new bike out of state?

Has anyone ever done this? I am thinking about picking up a new DRZ-SM, but am stuck in Louisiana and would like to get in on the 0% financing. Plus I found a good deal on one. I am curious about taxes and registering it in Texas.

It's not a problem. The dealership will likely know how to handle this. Might cause you to make one extra trip to the DMV, but no big deal.

Tell the dealer you're registering the bike out of state. After you buy the bike go to your county tax office in Texas, pay the taxes and register it.

You have to get the bike inspected in Texas before you can register it

Pretty much what Bevo said , the dealer mails the title to the DMV, you get the green form for state inspection , then you go pay TTL + registration and your good to go

I just went through this process. If you are financing the bike, the dealer has to apply for a title in their state to send it to the financing company before you can register in TX. The dealer can give you a temp tag so you can ride the bike, while LA process the title paper work and then send the title to the bank. Once the bank has the title, ask them to send you a copy of the title(front and back) and then take it to the to the DMV here and get it titled. If the LA title process is going to take more than 30 business days(or calender days, check on this), then go to the dmv, explain them the situation and they will then collect the taxes for the bike and give you a receipt. When you get the copy of the LA title, take that along with the receipt and other forms and you can get it titled and register the bike.
