Um. You're awesome. I knew Vermont was easier but figured I would need to know someone that lives there. I just read the first few lines of this thread and will definitely investigate further.
I was considering using a company called moto recycle, I know they go through Vermont but I assumed they had someone on the ground there. Seems like I can register on Vermont on my own without paying a titling service $150. Thanks!
Of course getting a bill of sale notarized somehow would still provide me the easiest, fastest rout.
