I plan to base myself in CM this winter and do multiple trips to Loas, Cambodia & Malaysia. Will be buying a CRF250 on arrival. I want to go on my first trip as soon as possible.....ie as soon as I have the necessary paper work. My problem is thus......I will have a tourist visa (for this trip) and no proof of address (though I do intend to buy a condo on this trip) So I cannot purchase in my name. I can however get my friend to buy it. So my main question is....does the thing of having permission from the owner (copies of Id, letter etc etc) actually work ? All the time ? Thanks in advance.
