Hi Has anybody had any experience buying a motorbike via the internet (cycle trader) changing the title over and having the bike shipped to another location . Is this possible to do remotely from NZ or do you need to be there in person also if you do this and have plates from a different state than the bike will reside in is this a problem or does the bike need to be reregistered in the state the bike resides in so what I'm getting at does buying a bike out of state create long term problems.

I,m thinking of owning a bike in the USA and travelling over yearly to do some riding any experience would be interesting to hear.
also what are the onroad costs
