One thing of note for Washington is that you need a Cop to come by and verify the VIN and give you a business card.  Vermont will call them when they're processing the paperwork and just say "Hey did this guy really have this bike with this VIN" and the Cop will say "Yes", and then you rejoice.
Same applies for VT if the bike is more than 650cc. I had do that for my '73 CB750. Worked like a charm. I have done this with 3 bikes that I have bought without one single hiccup (knock on wood.) I too live in Taxachusetts!!!!!

Do you just call state patrol and ask them to verify it in person?

I just called SPD's non-emergency line and asked for an officer to swing by.  Easy peasy

When you go the VT route, you have to have a VIN verification form filled out by a LEO anyway. It would certainly be a shitty way to find out a bike is stolen...

Stupid question, but what is LEO?  VT route went fine, but will I have to get the LEO form filled out to swap registration to WA? 

Either way, I just called State Patrol and they were able to tell me that it had not been registered in their system for over 20 years, so they didn't even have record of it.

It works a charm. Just make sure you get the right value for the taxes or you'll have to resubmit everything.

Going to give this a shot as well here soon. Printed everything out and got the PO to sign and fill out the official CA DMV Bill of sale. He forgot to include his DL number does that matter?  Thanks.

They won't bother you about DL number. As Von said, the taxes are the important bit. They just want the cash. I was told to use the NADA value for a "good" condition example of the bike (I paid $50, they originally told me to use the minimum tax of $30 but then sent everything back for me to resubmit).
