Title?

Do you have to have a title? What if you have no title or mso? I went around this problem in GA with a bonded title. I would rather not fork up the $100 for the bonded title next time.

I don't know for a fact, but making an educated assumption I would have to say yes. Otherwise it could be a stolen bike that you are trying to clean and get put into your name. On something like that I would suggest you cal S. Dakota directly and figure out what they require. If you do post up what they tell you so anyone else in your situation can get the info.

10-4 I'll give them a call on Mon and see. Still not that big of a deal for $100+50ish. Hell I paid $230ish for just my tag and title not including the bonded title for the exc... Damn 6% tax for used vehicles! I won't even get started.:damn::damn::damn::damn:

success story. got my plate and tittle for klx450. make sure to use your home address even though registering in sd. states only require that your bike is registered to you at your home address so that you don;t have to pay extra property taxes. so don't try and make a fake sd address. just use your address and your local police can't do anything to you. you are licensed and registered to your home address just through a different state. as long as the registration matches your dl

Thanks to Crash my 2012 WR450 has SD plates on it now. I followed the directions above, also called the number to the office and asked questions which they were very helpful. I sent a check for 300 even and received a check back for around 30 bucks so it wasn't cheap. Not sure right now if I am gonna try to switch over to my own state or just keep as is. Only flaw that I noticed was that even though I put MC for type on the application the new title from SD states DIRT. No mention anywhere on it about FOUO.

So now that it is confirmed that you can register a bike in SD the true test is to see how easy it is to transfer the registration to the state you live in. We all know that you can ride around with a SD tag but eventually the law will get you for not have it registered in the state you reside in.

Hpark, did you ever call them up? I have a bill of sale but no title and I was wondering the same thing. I'll give them a call a little later today if you haven't.

I may try this as well for my track bike just for the hell of it. Might make it worth more when I try to sell it. I know in ny if you buy and atv/sled/ bike with no title you can just take the bill of sale and a pencil tracing of the vin to the dmv and they will register it as an off road vehicle. Maybe south dakota does the same just for motorcycles? If not I will just do the ny thing first then send that to south dakota

That has me a little worried. My plate even starts off with MX.
I hope that living in a college town I will not get pulled. We have out of state tags everywhere.

I should have my title soon. I hope it says something other than DIRT. May put an E on the end just to make it sound better!

Shouldn't have a problem getting a plate in Ga.
Doesn't say anything about offload only or dirt.

Basic title. The body type says ATV.
I will run the SD plate for a while until I get pulled.

My S Dakota title has year make model (2012 Yamaha WR450F) then it says body (Road/STR) then lists the vin#.

I get my gas at a gas station that sells ethanol free fuel and it also happens to be our county sheriffs fueling station. I gas up all the time around cops and they've never paid me any attention. Act like you belong there and don't have anything to hide and you won't raise suspicions. I stick out like a sore thumb with my leathers and helmet as no one in my state wears either. They look over and see mirrors, lights, turn signals, street tires, a plate, and a friendly motorcyclist who waves or gives a polite head nod and they just go back to whatever they were doing. Most cops are just like everyone else, they don't want to work and aren't going to look for it unless you make them. For the rest you just have to have a good story lined up and tell it natural like it's an everyday thing. I was pulled once and I just told him the truth. I was visiting family in S Dakota and found a smokin deal on a leftover bike. The dealership said he could go ahead and plate it right then even though I lived in Illinois something about their state rules etc. I just trusted the dealer to do the paper work and know what he weas talking about. Now I'm just waiting on the title to come in the mail so I can get my Illinois plate.
