Buying motorcycles online

With all these ads about motorcycles on sales, chances are the best deals are outside of your state. Is there a way to put the money in an escrow until you receive the bike? And what if the bike conditions are worse than what's described, is there any protection against that?

Private sales, probably not. You can still go the escrow route but it's annoying and I doubt sellers would be willing to do that considering that they'll just as likely get a local sale with cash up front. An escrow service won't release the money to the seller until a specific set of agreed conditions are met on receipt . So if you get a crap bike that's outside of what's agreed on, your money is safe.

Don't know about dealers because I haven't once used them to buy a bike.
