For the salvage guys: I spoke with someone there for quite a bit of time to make sure I get this right with a salvage title. So I sent the proper paperwork (bike under 300cc's): -Registration -Bill of Sale AND -Salvage title (original) -Return Envelope filled out and addressed to me and with a stamp -Simple letter stating the salvage price and lower tax cost (bike is a 2012) and informing them to send the title back to me. They told me that because the bike is salvage you deduct 20% off the book value (which I did), and they need the title as proof which they will send back in the envelope I provided with them (which must be written in the letter). Why did I do this? My state (not NY) requires visual inspection of the vehicle because of the salvage out of state title, this way its cheaper, faster, easier, and simpler. I went to the DMV back home, it was going to be a time consuming mess (and the bike isnt there), so im going the VT way.
