Bike buying process in Malayisa

Hey folks

I'm looking for a heads-up on the process of buying a moto in Malaysia. I've been here a few months now and am about to start looking at privately buying a 2nd hand bike which I've done many times in UK but looking for some pointers on how things are done here.

Cheers

Here is a fairly good explanation of the process:

Malaysia does seem to be a very friendly place to buy a motorcycle as a foreigner.
