selling bike and what to do

I want to sell my bike and not too clear on the process. Which form do I need to prepare? Are there anything that I need to look out for? Thanks in advance for sharing your experience.

If you filled out a title transfer form as soon as you sell the vehicle you will be covered and you won't have to pay them. I ran into the same issue.

There's no legal reason for a bill of sale... You need the title transfer form and the title. There's a perforated/detachable piece at the top of the title that you can fill out and mail in upon sale of the vehicle that will notify the state that the vehicle is no longer owned by you and will relieve you of any financial responsibility past that point. I'd get a copy of the buyer's driver's license info to keep on file along with a photo copy of the title. Otherwise, you just fill out the form and title, and the buyer transfers the title into their name. As was already stated, you are allowed to keep your plates, which will force the buyer to transfer the title before using the vehicle. If you keep the plates, the buyer will need to get a transit permit to drive the vehicle to the tax office (or home), and it's valid for 5 days.

I believe the small part on the title, that you can detach, can be turned in to DMV and will show them you sold your vehicle. This will keep you from responsibility from that day forward.

Always cover your a$$ and make sure that you send them that notice of title transfer asap! Can't trust anyone you sell it to.

past couple of titles did not have that form on the top. You had to go to the dmv website and fill it out there. Be sure to get all the info from the seller. Name address dl number phone number etc.

More importantly, make sure you count your money twice and get one of those markers to spot fake bills

Do the transaction at a bank. Let them exchange their cash for a cashiers check made out to you.

if you would have gone online and filled out the VTN, you would have no liability.
