Registering Out of State bike info

hows it going everyone so i bought a bike from a private seller in another state and was wondering to transfer the title to my name i know that the owner must sign the back of the bikes title.

my question is since it is an out of state bike does he need to sign a texas 130-U

and if so should i email him the document so he can print it and sign it?

my last bike i bought in state at a dealer so all the paper work was dealt with this time im a noob at buying a bike from out of state let alone private seller.

any help is greatly appreciated thanks in advance

I believe you would find it easier to get a title in the state in which you are buying it, then transfer the registration to Texas. Had to do that on a pickup and a mustang about a decade ago.

its just as easy a registering a bike that is from texas, only difference is you go get it inspected first and tell them you need form for out of state vehicle's. I forget what its called but I just did it last month and it was an easy process

Insurance, title. You will have to ask for the vin to be varafied when it is inspected. It is a seperate form. Any vehicle inspection place can do it. You might have to send Texas Bill of sale and title transfer forms to the seller to sign.

Inspection station will issue you a blue form/receipt to take with you to the county tax assessor/collector (Texas DMV office) for plates/registration.
