Registration vs Title

Dear All,

I would like some clarification. I am planning a trip from the US to Costa Rica. Are BOTH the Title and Registration required?

I am hoping that that Registration is suffucient since the title company is still holding title to the bike.

Thank you,

Tom

You will need at least a copy of the title to get Mexican documentation. That is to show that you own the bike. Since you do not have clear title you will need a signed statement from the lien holder that they approve the trip through Mexico. The other borders I don't know about.

Good luck.

Just looked it up, Importación Temporal de Vehículos and it appears mollydog is correct.

" Certificate of vehicle´s ownership, valid registration, or lease contract. " is needed. I do think you need a release from the lien holder, but take your chance.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
