  1. Could I get a Vermont title or registration for a 1983 Yamaha XS650 if I live in Massachusetts? I tried to register it in MA but can’t because I don’t have the prior owners title or registration who lives in NH. All I have is a Bill of Sale. What are my options? Thanks. Tim

    1. Vermont seems like your best bet. Fill out the form, provide the current fees, and get a VIN inspection if necessary, and mail it all off. Good luck!

    1. Hi Dennis,

      You should be able to get a Vermont title for your Triumph through this process. Once you receive the title and plates, you could ride the bike and then transfer it in Hawaii.

      Good luck!
