New Mexico bike title question...any help for a Nor'easter?

I am looking at a used dual sport with a NM title. I called our Dept of Motor Vehicles to see if I need the title notarized and they said that IF it has a space for it, it needs it. If not, then no. It's the same old story where the seller bought the bike and had the title signed by the seller, but never bothered to register it and now they want to sign it over to the next buyer.

The bike is not really close by, so I'm trying to get it figured out before I travel. I have the seller checking, but would like confirmation if I can get it.

Can anyone take a look at their street bike or DS title and see if it needs to be notarized upon transferring ownership?



If it is a NM title then it should be easier. I did have to get a notary when the the seller signed a title in the wrong place.

Recently I have had a problem with out of state MSO that was never registered but I think it is due to it being out of state.

Go to MVD Express, they seem to have it down better than the state offices.

Good luck!

New mexico titles don't need a notary to transfer them.just a signature on the back. You should get a bill of sale from the guy you deal with

      I don’t ride as often as I used to (every few months now) After dealing with ethanol laced gas turning to shit a few times (I always treat it with ethanol type fuel preservative), is there anywhere in SFV or Simi Valley or nearby that sells real fuel?
      next step will just be draining tanks before I pack the bikes away

      I'm headed down from Northern California in late April/May with my wife and our two dogs. We're just trying to have a relaxing vacation with our dogs and go around and eat at some good places / beaches etc. We were thinking LA but even as far as San Diego sounds good. Wife gave me the a-ok to bring my bike so I can sneak out out a bit to ride. Any suggestions on where to stay?

      Yo kids ,
       we just did our annual run to blind Indian today and the other fun stuff the area has to offer , conditions were purely awsome after the storms last night, the #211 trail needs some activity , doesn't look like shes getting used too much , we kicked a bunch of rocks off ,broke some nasty dead branches , etc , still passable , the 1st uphill with switch backs has been storm washed exposing aggregate but thats not suck a bad deal ( traction was pretty good ) , she needs to see more riders ...put this on your agenda, grab some like minded trail hoppers and lets keep this trail fresh

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.
