Another motorcycle title question

Guys - Is it possible to transfer a motorcycle title without a motorcycle licence?. I am looking to buy a titled track bike but do not have a TX road licence? Likewise do I need to have insurance to transfer the title?

As far as I know, no license requirement. Never seen that.
You have to have proof of insurance on something. Not the bike, just something showing financial responsibility.

You had proof of insurance on a track bike that you aren't registering for road use?


If you transfer the title you have to pay taxes on the vehicle correct?

subject to applicable local sales or use taxes up to 2 percent.
Dealers are responsible for collecting the state and
local taxes from purchasers and remitting those taxes to
the Comptroller.
