Buying a motorcycle in Switzerland

Hello everyone,

I recently moved to Switzerland and I would like to buy a motorcycle, I have my resident B permit and a valid driving license.

I live in the canton of Vaud and found a bike that I would like to buy in the canton of Glarus, the owner of the bike doesnít speak good English and I donít speak German...Iím trying to understand what documents I need in order to buy the bike privately as this is not sold via a dealership.

I would like to take a train there and ride it back home but Iím not sure what I need to do in order to be able to ride it legally, is the mfk that he has valid for me cross cantons and come back to Vaud?
Do I need to get the title/registration from him before I go and pick it up? Does the mfk stays with the bike (like in the USA there is an inspection sticker on the forks)?

Alternatively I could source a company to deliver the bike to me?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
