I drove almost 5hrs roundtrip to buy this bike. I asked before I left if the Title was clear and he assured me it was indeed as per his description in the ad. I'm ready to pay/load up, but ask to see the Title first. He told me he bought it from a guy in IA. I assumed he's an IA transplant because it's an IA Title. I've bought 10 bikes in IA in the past 5 years, so I recognize the Title immediately. Seller NEVER registered the Title in IL! The original owner signed it over to mr jdm and now he's trying to sell it to me. I left pissed off and out $50 in gas, but what a NIGHTMARE it could have been. The DMV would want taxes owed by previous owner & I would have to track down original owner to get a Bill of Sale if I wanted any chance of getting a Title for the bike. Now I'm wondering if there was an insurance claim and the NEW Title will be salvage/ or Junk?? Be advised- don't look for the Ohlins Race damper, he removed it..........
