HD Finance sucks. Bought my bike for less than seller owed. HD Finance kept the transfer locked up. My credit union forced the issue, to their (and my) satisfaction within hours (maybe "day"). If you are not paying cash, get your bank involved......if they won't, get a new bank. You can always "finance" the bike through a bank, then pay off the loan in 30 days, same as cash. But use the bank as a buffer.

3. Seller sends title to me.

I'll update this once I finish the purchase or if it falls apart.
Make sure that you get a 10 day payoff verification and ensure there will be no outstanding balance or late fees assessed. Also get a commitment that the payoff will be submitted and processed within 10 business days. I had a situation where a guy's bank didn't process payment within 10 days so the payoff changed by something like $0.72. The bank wouldn't release the title and there was nothing I could do about it without the seller actively following up and taking care of the outstanding balance.
