I saw a video of another one doing exactly the same thing. I wonder if there's a recall necessary on something ???
I had an insurance company do that with 1 car & had to do the same.My 07 VLX under-seat fuel pump wiring melted and caught fire while I was riding. It was mostly cosmetic damage as I was able to pull into a McDonald's lot and use their fire extinguisher, yet it got totaled anyways. The bike has a rebuilt title now.
No but anyone taking video could have claimed copyrights to a sequel.Was that the bike Nicholas Cage rode in the movie? Lol
I still have full coverage w/Progressive. I don't plan on selling the bike, I bought it new in 97 and have logged 136K miles so it it isn't going anywhere...it's definitely cheaper to keep her.I had an insurance company do that with 1 car & had to do the same.
The next time that they wanted to Total a vehicle, I asked how much they'd give me to fix it myself & keep a clean title. They gave me enough to make it completely roadable again.
Asking the right questions can help you keep a regular title. But of course, you do get less money originally, but if/when you sell, you get more.
One more thing. At least with Allstate, they won't allow you to get comprehensive coverage on a vehicle that's ever been "totaled". Something to think about at least.
