Thanks for the clarification on the acronyms. We all ahave them in oour worlds. I manage our Provincial Trauma Program and we have a thousand of them.

Sucks about your GG. Great that you are OK and maybe you will end up with a newer bike. If you have a bike with a total on the title, you can still part it out can't you?

Does the salvaged title mean that you can get it inspected (where required) and licensed to ride again?

Yes you can.The only down fall is salvage tittled bike dont sell as good as reular tittled scooters.
But then again you can part it out and make your mola that way man.

You can in PA as well.

If you decide to settle and buy the bike back, it's usually for about 10% of the value, and you get the rest, less your deductable.

Before the insurance company will give you the money, you have to obtain a Salvage title for the bike, though, or at least they require it in this state.

Once you prove you did, they pay you the settlement.

This keeps people from buying wrecked vehicles, fixing them and reselling it with a clear title, when it was totalled.

Then.....you fix the bike, and go through the steps with your state to get a Reconstructed Title, (paperwork and pictures and an inspection) and a new VIN with a VIN tag that gets affixed to the bike frame.

Considering that you'll end up with your bike and about $3-4K in your pocket after it's fixed, it's not a bad deal.

Of course, most vehicles with a Recon titles sell for less, but you already made profit from the repurchase, of sorts,

I sent a list of five 1995 FLHT bikes from Cycletrader.com from $11,500 to $12,988. I could not find any cheaper "same as" bikes that did not require accident repair or serious work done. If they look, they will find the same thing.

I also sent a spreadsheet of 47 line items with part numbers, suppliers and pricing. Total was $7875 which added to KBB totaled $14,690. I put in this disclamier in bold and red "No tax, installation labor, cylinder boring, upgraded gasket kits or powder coating has been included in this quote". My helmet was one of the line items.

Their email this morning gives me a glimmer of hope: Thanks for this information. We will review your spreadsheet and make sure all the options have been considered. Feel free to call at any time but it may take a day or so to review the options and make any needed adjustments to the value of your vehicle.

I would buy the GG back, if I have enough to get a ride in the mean time. I cannot be off 2 wheels the length of time it would take to get the GG back on the road.

I'm willing to ventue (and I hope I'm wrong) that they'll claim that with all the parts you put in it, that you should have insured it for more then it's retail value, in order not to take such a loss if something happened to it.

Insurance companies want their money NOW. When my truck got totalled, I had to fight with them tooth and nail to get back what I did.

They'll do anything not to pay out.

Good luck. Keep us posted Roy.

If I can get them north of $10k, I can get a decent ride. If I can get $12 then I can possibly buy back the GG too. My guess... probably $10k after my $500 deductible will be the offer. I would be ok with that.
