BTW, it has now been a year since I did the VT reg thing. I just renewed online for two more years.

Good to know! My bike was a 650 so that makes sense.

Curious to know if anyone has done this process with a brand new bike. Would hate to be kickin' myself in the arse if I can't get a plate for this beautiful new scoot.
Update on my own question. Received my plate on Friday, just waiting for my permanent registration to come through. Did have to re-submit my paperwork as I tried to transfer the plates off another bike I sold that was registered in VT but got denied since the registration for the sold bike was at my parent's address and not my current one (my fault for never updating that).

Only thing that has me scratching my head is the temporary registration they sent me. This is my 3rd bike going the VT route (all under 300cc and nothing older than an 04) and I never received a temporary registration for the first 2. Also no paperwork telling me to take a specific course of action that came with the plate. We shall see.

If anyone has a new bike they want to register and the MCO has certain verbiage stating said bike's non-road orientation, I suggest being nice to the sales guy at the dealership you are buying from as you'll be needing his signature

Registered a 250 today and got a temporary registration. You will get permanent reg and the sticker to cover that orange T in a couple of weeks.

It's called a garage lien. PM me. I can try to help you out since we're in the same jurisdiction.

IT 175 Yamaha

I followed this route a couple of years ago on a 1980 Yamaha IT 175, received the Vermont Registration, and after a couple of years, transferred it to a Florida Title and Registration. (!)

I did have to get a licensed dealer to certifiy that the bike had a speedometer. Not an odometer -- a speedometer and a horn.

I'm considering doing the same with another bike, under 300cc's, and wonder if anyone has run into the speedometer and horn thingy . . . ?

Anybody had an issue with titling a 1998 bike. I know it meets the 15 year mark, just seems most go this route since the bike is under the CC requirement.

I joined this site just for this thread. I got my temporary tag last week for a 2008 49cc scooter. Today the mail has my permanent sticker. But in the title box in the registration certificate it says issued. Is that normal or is that a new thing that means they are going to send me a title?
I want to make sure I have the right paperwork before I go to get my state tag without having a 40 minute drive to the county treasurer office be a waste of time and gas.

For a seventy minute trip I would be calling the issuing agency to make sure.

I went to the DMV in Illinois this morning to see if they would accept a license transfer and they told me the bill of sale had to be from an address in VT to an address in IL. Anyone know if this is true/have more information? Could I just make up a bill of sale?

Sounds like you need to sell your bike to someone in VT that will issue you a bill of sale when they resell the bike to you.

Ok, on section 9, I can't type any info, but isn't that where I fill-in the registration price, and the tax, then total it at the bottom? I plan on just printing out and handwriting it, but want to make sure first.

Also, what is the registration fee, couldn't find it anywhere?

You don't fill out section 9. If you scroll down on that form there are instructions on how to fill out 1-8.
http://dmv.vermont.gov/fees/registration has the list of fees, a motorcycle is $44 for 1 year.
