    Have your buddy write up a bill of sale for one pile of shit:
    Fill out one of these, can be gotten online TA-VD-119 http://dmv.vermont.gov/forms/drivers

    Make sure you use the NADA value for taxes.
    And get one of these:


    Now you maybe asking, hey dummy, I don't live in Vermont, why are you showing me this? Well I'll tell you, you rude prick, because through the magic of the postal service this works for out the state Jerks like yourself (or even out of country). Just mail the form in with the bill of sale and a check and you should get a plate back in a few weeks. Be as vague as possible on the form and make sure the bike is at least 15 years old. The reason this works is because Vermont doesn't issue titles after 15 years, just registrations.
    Once you get the plates you need to get the vin checked by a cop but that doesn't have to be in Vermont then you will get the permanent registration. From here you can just run the green plate or take it into your dmv and get it registered in your home state. Just make sure they understand Vermont doesn’t do titles on old shit.
    Now for the disclaimer, I've seen this shit before and have known about it for a while but today I confirmed it with the lady at the dmv. Now she could be dead wrong but what she told me pretty much lines up with what I have read on the interwebs.
    So to sum it all up, pay Vermont their due and they could give a fuck.
    When you filled out the form.. did you use your non vermont address or leave it blank? I found a good deal on a sportster with no title.. thinking about doing this

    Hypothetically could you just keep registering your bike in vermont for the foreseeable future?

    As long as you pay the yearly renewal I don't see why not.

    I'm not sure about this part. At least in PA, you have so many days to register your vehicle when you move. Though it usually comes up if the address on your License and Registration do not match. I guess it would match if VT doesn't care about out of state address. Seems strange.

    Maybe you'd have to get a PO Box in VT and tell the cop the bike is registered to your Beach House there and usually the bike is there, but you brought it home to work out some bugs.

    I'm sure it varies by state how much the cops/dmv care. I have a buddy that moved from TX to NY and was rolling with the TX plates for years. Then he got a temp assignment with his company working in Canada and still has the TX plate and no one seems to care and I know the fucker gets pulled over a lot.

    I sold a bike couple years ago cuz it didn't have a title and I basically gave it away... That was before I realized in Alabama anything over 25 years they don't title.. Makes me so mad now. You have to have an address and proof of insurance here tho so this trick wouldn't really work..

    The first reply said in Ga., you dont need a title after 25 years old, but if the vehicle is 12 yrs old or older you dont have to have a title. Live there all my life and now in Louisiana. They got a scheme going herein La.,, when you buy a vehicle here the title and bill of sale have to be "notarized" at time of sale and the fee is based on the value of vehicle. Its like 15-25% of value of vehicle. ...The way around that is get seller to make bill of sale at lower value than you actually pay them. For example. bought my girl a suzuki s40 for $1500 and the fee was going to be like $200, but the seller offered to lower the price on bill of sale, he filled in the blank with $500 and we only paid like a 55$ fee. Why should I have to pay the state to buy a vehicle?? What a crock of shit.
    Also a little known fact: you can transfer a vehicle in any state buy a "act of donation" transfer meaning the seller can say you bought it for $1 because the "purchase price" box must be filled in on the document then you can put the bike in your name,,,or your dad or mom name and get listed as "secondary driver" on the insurance for some crazy low insurance rates! You wouldn't believe what I pay for" FULL coverage" ins. because I have mine in my 70yr old mom's name.. There's a loop hole in everything..

    What did you guys put for VT Drivers License Number? Think I should leave it blank or put my Indiana one?

    Also, do you send your check with the form when you send it in? Or do they send you something back that says how much you owe?

    I don't really know the answer to that question for sure but I would say either use your license number or just leave it blank. Check out the AV riders link, there are 27 pages of info there.

    To answer my own questions:

    The guys on the Advrider thread says just to leave the VT DLN blank.

    And the instruction pamphlet from the VT DMV website says that you have to include a money order or check with the form when you send it in. The fee for a 1 year motorcycle registration is $44 and then what ever tax you have on the value of your bike. So my total is $74 total. Gonna send my form, bill of sale, and money out and report back.

    This is an awesome trick and I will probably end up using it in the future, but I wanted to urge caution to anyone else who may do it, since this COULD be seen as tax evasion and a felony. Be careful when doing this, and switch the bike to your local state asap.

    It's tax evasion in the sense that getting a lowball bill of sale written is tax evasion. On that same line, Clark make sure like I mentioned before to use the NADA value, when I did mine that seemed like their biggest hangup and didn't want to hear anything about bill of sale price or the photos I showed off the above pile of shit.

    From what I read in the 29 pages over there, people have called to inquire about the taxes and NADA value. They were told the value used to determine taxes must be at least $500 or it will get kicked back.

    They valued my 1980 xs at over $700. To add to the $500 thing, the dmv gave me a form that I could have a dealer appraisal to lower the dmv assessment, but right on the form it says the value of $500 minimum will be used even if the dealer assessed it lower. I'll go out to the garage in a bit to check out any otherwise fine print mentioned.

    I put down $500 for the price of mine. It's a 71 CB750 and NADA says it's worth $1180, and that's probably pretty close.

    If they don't like the $500 won't they just kick back my paperwork and make me fix it? I'm not in a hurry for it or anything. Surely they'd have to send back my money too.

    I always used to say I bought from a farmer at the swap meet in a box of parts and that I only had a bill of sale. Worked for a lambretta that was fresh off the boat from Italy also. The last time was about 12 years ago, no idea how hard it is now though.

    What do you put in the milage if it is a pile with no speedo like in the picture? Wonder how that will go over with the VIN inspection.
