Best of luck man; good things happen to those that plan! Since you have a few days I suggest calling your registration office and making sure that taxes/registration paid in another state don't have to be paid a second time in your state.

That is the problem with the term "out the door". In most cases buyers from another State often HAVE to pay their own State taxes themselves (in order to be legal as it is not the out-of-State dealer's responsibility to ensure that you pay the taxes YOU owe to your own State) so "out the door" for a buyer from another State that does not practice reciprocity means exactly what they said... out THEIR door, not "in yours". The bottom line is that you have to verify what is included vs. what is not. Rather than relying on an ambiguous term that can have flexibility like "out the door".

Some people even think OPTIONAL things like extended warranty SHOULD be included in an "out the door" price but warranties, Oil Changes, First Service and yes, even Taxes can be variable from dealer to dealer. Having stated all this, I hope it does work out for you. Dealer's know what their costs are and they can (and sometimes will) EAT small differences in cost just to keep the buyer happy. How much difference could the tax differences be anyway, a few hundred?

Think they'd give you a 30 day tag and you'd register it in your home state. You'd get dinged twice on sales tax, but registration fee's would only be paid where you titled it.

You have to have them send you the bill of sale in a email before you buy. Look to see what is on the list,, price of bike , doc. fees, title fee, set up fee, state sales tax for your state. Just bought one from Hondaeast.com over the phone. They are not going to screw you. The state will get there sales tax and you do not pay twice for it. They would get in big trouble. So just make sure you see all the numbers and how they add up before you buy...

"Out the door" is a colloquialism for "price - trade = trading difference + tax + title + license." It does not matter what state the sales tax is due in... the dealer knows full well that sales tax is going to be due and knows full well that you are from out of state and that those are the taxes that will be due... the dealer by agreeing to an "out the door price" with you has agreed to pay the full amount of sales tax due.

If the dealer is stupid enough to screw around on such an idea as this, I would take my business down the road... just think of the screwing you're going to get when it comes time for warranty work etc.

Always ask for an itemized bill of sale when you agree to buy anything... it can save a lot of headaches and will let you know exactly how the bottom line is reached. If it were me, at this point I would call my salesman and ask him to email a copy of the agreement to you...

I guess that I was fortunate. I just bought a 2012 Cross Country Tour out of state. I had to pay sales tax in the state that I bought the bike in. When I registered the bike in my home state, I showed proof that I had paid the out of state sales tax, and was credited that amount on my home state's registration. Now of course, I was dealing with a new person, and finally working with a more experienced person, it only took four tries for him to find the right place on the form to put the credit.
