you can probably go ahead and get the whole thing done right at the courthouse if you have insurance and the vin # ...but i am sure there is a temp pass either way..on one of the posts one of the most loved stuntaz is offering his truck as a transport truck....be good for his first day of business!!! :laughing6

id do wut he said, but being honest, just keep the title and bill of sale handy, so in case u get pulled over u can just say u just purchased it and explain to the cop ur just taking it home and the cop should understand, happened when i went with my cousin to colorodo to drive his car he just bought back to texas, but if it were me id go to the courthouse and get it done ASAP ASAP

just ride it man, esp. if the tags aren't even expired on it. The cops will just think ur from out of state and if you do get pulled over then just show them the title and it will have that days date on it saying u just got it so it shouldn't be a big deal. You have 15 or 20 days or something to transfer the title anyway

the bike is here in texas, but titled in florida, the bike has no license plate, if it did have a plate (even from out of state) i would ride it home that way, im just not wanting to chance a 45 mile ride home with nothing on the back

if you have the bike inspected and have a "green" form as proof, insurance, and FLA title in hand you can get a temp tag from the courthouse. they will then transfer the title over to you and hand you the paper tag.


OR

call Din's Moto Rescue Unit. he got A/C and a CB radio for you to play with while the bike is transported.

Just ride the thing. Do the speed limit and I almost guarantee you will not have any issues.

since he is in TX I would have him go w/ u to the tax office to do the TTL. Also you can take the bike by the local PD to make sure it's not stolen
