Hell no those bastards won't give you the title! I paid for my bike with the Kawasaki credit card deal and they hold onto the title. When I bought my bike, I had no idea the financing was going to go on a freakin' credit card. I was shocked initially getting the card in the mail, didn't know what it was at first. But in hindsight, it's not that bad of a thing. I have 4.9% interest for two years, and I'll probably roll the balance over to a 0% APR on another card at that point. You can basically shift you balance around to enjoy low APRs on different cards until you're debt is paid off.
Plus, when you transfer the balance to another card, you get the title.
Kind of silly ,but it works.
Did you finance the title fees/taxes onto your card too?
