    Just to add to the info exchange:
    The loophole hinges on the fact that Vermont doesn't title vehicles older than 15 years as well as allowing out of state registration ...so older vehicles.

    Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

    So I gues what I don't get is-Does your dmv even check if there is a active or previous title in the system before transferring it to your state and issuing a title? Just because you got a bike somehow doesn't mean there isn't a legal title holding owner out there.

    Do you mean if you get a Vermont title? Yes, they check. Same with abonded title or abandoned vehicle title. IF it's hot, you're outta luck.

    No, title in your state. I'm talking about "chain of ownership". I've thought about it and I guess the loophole is that Vermont doesn't require you to prove a chain of ownership. They will issue you a registration that you can use to get a title in your state. Your state only will look at your legitimate Vermont paperwork and assume everything is in order. You won't have to fill out extra "chain of ownership" papers/legwork even though someone might have snuck the bike out of someone's barn(he's old and doesn't realize it's gone,or any number of different scenarios), a month earlier. Now two people have a legal title but only one has legal ownership. I think that's how it works.

    Just to show you how Florida is - and though the DMV can be a pain at times, something like this is an example of how it can be beneficial - my Dad sold a small Yamaha dirt bike (100cc or so) long ago and signed the title, handed it to the new owner and that guy never titled it in his name. Not too long after that the bike was stolen from the buyer, and somewhere close to 10 years later they came to my Dad's house telling him they found his Yamaha.
