Well, first I checked carfax report on this win, it says that bike was salvaged in 2008 in MAssachusets than it was moved by original owner in Pennsylvania than in New Mexico (smart move - explain further) There is no me like a registered owner on a car fax, so I went to dmv immediately because was thinking maybe title on my name as well as registration were fake. When the bake was registered on my name in July 2014 it did show up that title is salvage , so they give me the clean one. Yesterday they checked in NM database, they have 1)a clean status on the bike! And !! 2)No info about previous owners exceptof me. The first is clear for me: carfax is getting info from all 50 states . But dmv doesn't. If you get salvage status on your vehicle but you didn't update your title, you have a clean title paper - you go to another state and register it - they give u a new title clean again , cause they do not have info in database yet, however they gonna send request in the previous state of title to get info. It takes a couple months I bet. Than you move to the third state and do the same move they check status in the second but it is still clean the did not get update yet. So the request from the last state is getting answer - bike is clean.
