Title vs. bill of sale

Recommended Posts

I live in ohio and I’m not sure if you can get a title with a bill of sale from a private party? Seen a couple quads I like but they didn’t have a title and turned a way from them because of that. Anyone know?

Do you really need a title to ride where you want to ride? Here in NJ all you need is a bill of sale or statement of origin if the seller still has it. This is also true for Pennsylvania.

I register mine with the PA DCNR. There want either of those documents plus a picture of the Vin number on the machine if you don't have the statement of origin as they run a vin check to make sure it's not reported stolen.

They reason why I register in PA is because that's where I ride and I'd rather give them the money where they have public trails and do maintenance on them. I could register in NJ but all they do is take your money and there's really no legal place to ride!

NJ and lower NY are tough for riding, I've gone further north into NY to ride. You can find trails here though, through power lines and wooded areas but more than likely you end up on someone's land. If the quad is registered, you'll get a fine and take it home. But if it's not registered and you get caught, it gets impounded. I keep my grizzly registered with NY plates and insured through allstate.

Some states require a title and some do not title offroad vehicles.  In those states Bill of Sale is all you need.

In Georgia we only do a bill of sale. But that's mainly just to prove you didn't steal it, no paperwork is ever checked down here.

If you can get a title, its always smart. I bought a 1985 gold Wing in GA and then gave it away in Florida as I had no title.... I also had a Jeep when I moved from there, and gave it away in Ohio as I had no title... 

  I've learned since then...California will title it if you move from a state that doesn't title them and you can prove ownership... So..check with your DMV, each and every time.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

Been riding/camping up north Michigan, since 86 with kids and friends, and presently my best trail buddies, live in Ohio, and Indiana, and they also love our northern trails/campgrounds/towns/diners, pubs, lakes, fresh air! AND SAND....hundreds of miles of this clean golden, Michigan gift!
