I would be more than happy to help you in your tours with bike purchases, I am a used truck dealer in Oklahoma and I have helped a few people do what you are asking.
Here is how I handle a bike purchase like this.
1. I purchase the bike for you ahead of time, since I am a dealer I do not have to tag the bike, I might have to roll a out of state title to my dealerships name but that only costs $15.00 (while the bike is in my possession my dealers insurance covers the bike)
2. I hold the bike and title for you until you need the bikes, I then tag the bike ($125.00) when you get here to take your ride we fill the title out in your name, you have a current tag, a current bill of sale . The only thing you will need is Insurance....you can use my address and purchase a policy in your name and use my address......When you leave the US and ship your bike home apply for a refund on the insurance policy.
I did this for A German Couple, purchased 2 Harley's for them, charged them $500.00 per bike plus expenses, Met them in NC with their bikes, They had a lot of fun, I got to meet some fellow riders, and everyone was happy.
Would be happy to do the same for you.

It was really funny, when Hans sent me the money to buy his bikes a lot of his friends thought he was crazy..........i.e. trusting someone he did not know, He checked me out on the internet and decided he felt comfortable with the transaction. He wired the money before I bought the bikes as we had been discussing going to a dealer only auction and he could view the bikes online before and during the sale he felt comfortable sending me a wire for $45,000.........it does seem like a leap of faith but it all worked out.......
