I think, maybe, they have to get a title for it in my name as proof of ownership.  The MD DMV site says,
"Typically, you will need to submit the following forms to obtain a title for your vehicle:

    Proof of ownership – This is the vehicle’s existing title that identifies you as the owner. If the vehicle is from a state that does not issue a title as proof of ownership ONLY, the vehicle's registration document and bill of sale may be submitted as proof of ownership."

This indicates that you must have a title  in order to get a new title, unless you bought from a state that doesn't do titles.  But this still seems new to me.  I'm getting an Ohio title for a used vehicle that I'm buying.  Ohio.  I guess the dealer couldn't give me the title they received when they bought the vehicle, since you can only transfer a title once. 
Maybe it makes some sense now.  But it's still strange.   
Thanks. That's what makes sense to me as well.  The dealer won't have a title, other than the original that they got from the private seller.  But then they have no reason to get a new title in their name; being a dealer.  So they would give a new buyer the bill of sale and whatever other paperwork will allow the new buyer to go to their own home state and title and register it.  (Assuming you're from a state they don't normally deal with; otherwise they'll apply for the title for you in your home state.)

No, I'm not taking a loan or financing on it.

MD says you must title a vehicle in the state within 60 days of moving there.  Otherwise you get no credit for sales tax you already paid in the other state when you bought it.  (Aren't they generous.  I'm sure people normally don't have much else to do when they've just changed their residence.)  So I don't see how I wouldn't need a MD title.

The dealer sent me paperwork to sign; which includes an application to the Ohio DMV for a certificate of title.  It has me as purchaser, and has my correct home address in MD.  I just don't understand it.  What in the world is Ohio going to do with this?
That sounds strange. I bought a new ADV 150 in Pennsylvania (no financing) but the dealer gave me the bill of sale and certificate of origin to take to my home state DMV for title completion. If you are financing your Trophy, the bank will hold the title until you pay it off. Can you check with Maryland DMV for the proper procedure?
Hey guys.  I'm finally actually buying a Trophy.  2013.  So I'll be on here a lot more going forward.  I'm a little bit excited.

I have a question.  I live in Maryland but the bike is in Ohio and the dealer sent me paperwork to fill out for them to title the bike in my name in Ohio.  ???  I called to ask and he said they can title it in my name there, and I could register it in Maryland, and not have to get a new title. 
I have some serious doubts about this working.  Any experience with this? 
Definitely works in summer and does make the seat more comfortable overall. I've not used in winter with heated seat yet.

Certainly a nice easy upgrade and fits great.
I used an Air rider seat on my recent 4000 mile trip. Certainly made a difference.

Ive just ordered the front and rear crash bars from Tralex.  Looking forward to getting them.
Hi all, I'm considering buying a Cool Cover for my SE - not necessarily for its cooling properties in summer, but for better long distance comfort. Would be interested in peoples experience of this product - does it make your seat more comfortable, can you feel the heated seat through it, what's it like in cold weather? And are there any similar alternative products out there that help with long distance comfort? TIA Trophy hivemind!
