UK citizen buying US/canadian etc registered bike

Guys,

How easy is it (is possible at all) for me to buy 2nd hand from a US traveller for example? Do i need to register the bike in santiago, where im hoping to buy?

Are border crossings possible?

2009 DR650 Suzuki for Sale in Buenos Aires Argentina

Hi There: I traveled on my DR650 Suzuki with my family from Canada to Argentina in the last 7months. Now we finished our trip in Buenos Aires Argentina, thinking to sell my Bike instead of shipping back to home. I don't know how to change the owner ship but I met the Russia guy in Chile while we travel there who bought a Suzuki Vstrom from a America owner but the bike is in Buenos Aires, he is riding up to Alaska from Argentina.
If you interested we can differently looking into it.
Thanks
Michael

Buying a car/bike is easy, even if you are using a tourist visa, the problem is the insurance, most insurance companies just make insurance for persons with SSN.
When I visited the USA in 2008 I bought a car (not really a CAR, in fact it was a $800 beater) in New Hampshire and drove it to NY. At that time NH was the only state in the US who doesn´t require you to hire an insurance to ride or drive you car/bike.

Guys,

your kind of missing my point.

Im flying into Santiago in september and want to buy 2nd hand. I am trying find out whether I can buy from an american/canadian or (whoever) where the bike is not registered in Chile.

Is it possible?
