Buying a bike in Pennsylvania
I just bought a bike in Pennsylvania but when we went to change the title to my name it was impossible because I needed a state licence (international DP no good) and I couldnt get anything with only the Visa waiver program entry that I had.
At present have written permission from previous owner to ride it in his name (tho he has the money for the bike) but I wont be ale to take it to S America until it is in my name.
am waiting for some news from an american woman who works in this department of re-registering bikes and is looking into other state laws.
Basically, at present it seems you need a B2 visa to be legal on buying a vehicle in USA.
If anyone has had any experience in this area, let me know. Things have changed drastically since 9/11 and you need to read the small print on the immigration/visa site (which of course I didnt) before coming here.
