Hello everyone! I have a 2015 wr450f that I am building into a fully street legal supermoto. To start off I live in massachusetts and and financed the bike from a local dealer. From what I hear it is a big pain to title a dirt bike in mass(because it take so damn long, nh only takes 30 days or less apparently), so I'm having a close friend title it for me in NH, so when this bike is titled in NH she will "sell" it or gift the title back to me so I can register it in mass. This involves me "selling" the bike to this friend via bill of sale so they could try and title it. Apparently how it goes in nh you need valid certificate of origin and a bill of sale to apply for a title. I was denied this because i dont have the original certificate of origin (have an exact copy, not the original) because I financed the bike. From reading on forums I knew you could title a dirt bike in nh without a certificate of origin, so I called the nh title Bureau and explained my situation. The supervisor told me the only way I could do this is to: 1. get an off road registration 2. get a vin verification (a dealer or cop checks out the bike to verify the vin) 3. write a statement about what I have done to make the bike street legal. After all that is done I can apply for a title. What I am worried about is this process not being able to work because I have a lien on the mass certificate of origin. I'm just not sure if the lien will effect/matter with the titling in nh because this process apparently doesn't require a certificate of origin. And I know you technically shouldn't sell a bike with a lien on it. Plus I figured if I was successful with titling and registering it in mass, the bike would still have a lien on it (wich is what I want in the end.) I only owe 2800 on the bike and could pay it off right now np I just would rather not because I want to build credit off the loan.
