To answer the original question in this thread, the reason for going to VT is that they will issue a title/registration in spite of the fact that the MSO for most offroad bikes states, "Not For Highway Use". Most states will not give you a title if the MSO says that. After you get your VT title, which makes no reference to "Not For Highway Use", you go to your home state DMV office and get the title transferred to your state. I hope VT is still doing this, I'd like to be able to do the same thing with my next bike too.
I also heard they weren`t doing out of state reg.

I know a lot of states are a bit tougher to get them passed. I got my yz400 street legal this year.

"Yep, I just got word today from one of my customers; as of June 1st. the state of Vermont will no longer issue tags and titles to non-street legal dirt bikes. My customer submitted his request in March and they have made him jump through hoops to get it done. They told him today that as of June 1st they will no longer do this and that they were only doing it for him because he had his request submitted in March!"

"I had a nice chat with Amy at the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles. And I am sorry to report that the "Vermont method" [of vehicle titling] is history! We weren't the only people using Vermont; California and Connecticut also had many people applying for Vermont titles for converted dirt bikes. Once the Legislature found out what was going on they changed their law to prohibit future converted dirt bike titling."

i just got my crf registered for the street in Vermont...just two weeks ago.
My MSO was Canadian so it didn't specify "for off-road use only" on it. This is what made things easier. Had it been an american bike, I would have to go to Vermont to have the bike inspected with all the street gear on it, in order to get it registered.
