New Bike (don't have title yet) Baja California and Mexico
Here's the question: I've recently purchased a 1995 BMW 1100 GS from a dealer whose been having some paperwork issues; I still haven't received the printed registration nor title and can't expect it for three more days. However, I am planning on crossing the border into Mexico tomorrow with merely the written paper registration form he gave me during the sale. Will they need to see the title once the border authorities see is a handwritten bill of sale? Also, I hear that Baja is pretty much Southern California and it's quite common to go through the border without any troubles but I'm planning on actually exciting the southern border of Mexico on my trip, do I need to fill out some form that promises to take the bike out of Mexico (i.e. Carnet)?
Has anyone done the La Paz to Mazatlan ferry? Do they require a motorcycle visa or anything, or is it merely a Mexico to Mexico deal that is not checked by authorities?
