I have gone through the various FAQs on this and other forums, and they have been very helpful in spelling out what I need to have in order to effect a transfer of ownership. I have a specific question, however: I live in Bangkok. I will buy a legitimately green-booked (tabiyan)motorcycle that is owned, registered, and plated in Chiang Mai. My objective is to get the bike ownership in my name and the registration/plate to Bangkok. I'd like to do this with as little time in Chiang Mai as possible. At present the owner and I are intending to do a two-step process that would involve getting the Chiang Mai registration/tabiyan transferred from him to me in Chiang Mai. That is estimated to take two working days in Chiang Mai. Then, once I am back in BKK with the bike, I will transfer the registration/plate from CM to BKK. That is projected to take 6 weeks or so. If it were possible for me to do both steps in BKK, then I would not have to spend ANY working days in CM, but could go up, bring the bike back, and then deal with the paperwork here. Is that possible, and if so what papers are necessary (from whom) for that to be done without hitting paperwork obstacles. Tks in advance, if I have been unclear in stating the question, let me know... S.
