any tips on buying a motorcycle over the internet in Canada
I have found a good deal for a 2009 Wee Strom in Kingston Ontario. I have arranged shipping and now I'm down to the brass works of the deal. Finances have been agreed upon but being the bike is 2400 miles away how do I ensure that I'm not getting taken by the seller. Is there any way to confirm if there is a lien on the bike other than asking the owner. I'm going to ask he provide a photocopy of the VIN and also his insurance showing his name and the correct VIN.
Any other advice anyone can give me regarding a long distance purchase. I would like to make this as painless for both parties
