Brit looking for an American for a small favour

Hey Guys

I am from England but currently in Chile and in the process of buying a motorbike [KLR650] off another Brit. He bought the bike in America (Colorado), where he registered it with a friend and then rode it down here.

For us to legally complete the title transfer I need to have a friend in the States (ideally Colrado) whos address I can put down on the title document. From what I gather this person will have absolutely no obligations except possibly recieving some post in my name. Maybe you can see where I am going with this . . .

If anyone knows anyone, or is themselves, keen to earn a large payment in and of course a very good friend - could I use their address to register the bike to. As i say - from people I have asked this should in no way ever come back to haunt them - it will purely be an address to use on the title document.

Hope you can help.

Hi

I did the same as you want to do some years back.

It is a very cool way to do it. He found a bike for me and registered it for me. So I could just fly in and drive off (after and fun of course).

Use advrider.com instead of the HUBB. advrider.com is mainly americans where the HUBB is very mixed.

Make a cool and fun "application" there and I am sure there will be lots of people willing to help you. You will need to take a leap of faith though, since you will be transferring money to someone you don't know to buy something you haven't seen.

I did it and I am sure you can do the same.

Good luck
