i dont think its "legal" to have a vehicle thats not insured on the road. like if the police/ticketmaid went by your bike and saw something funny, they would have easily towed the bike since its not insured or registered. but then again i can be wrong.

Sorry man, but my guess would be you don't have a leg to stand on in an insurance battle with her, if your bike doesn't have insurance.

No matter where you're parked.

Less about no registration, more about no insurance.

This one could be tricky, keep us posted.

You may want to rethink about contacting her insurance company.

Having an unregistered, and more importantly, an uninsured vehicle on the street may bring you unwanted attention.

I'd try and work it out directly with her, "I'm trying to work this out, for your benefit, so you don't get an insurance increase for an accident".

If that doesn't work, you may just have to eat the damages. Better than an inquiry regarding your insurance status from the DMV.

Did the accident happen on the sidewalk rather than the street?

I once got a ticket for parking an unregistered vehicle on the street in a different state. I imagine it's illegal in NY, too.

IANAL but...
Ok yes it's clearly against the law to park an unregistered vehicle on the street. I'm not sure the issue of it being uninsured is such a big deal as long as it wasn't being driven on the street.

Given that this incident was her fault, the argument could be made that her insurance should cover the damage to your property, regardless of whether it's insured or not. Let's say that instead of your motorcycle, she backed into and damaged your bicycle which was locked up to a bike rack. Your bicycle isn't insured but she (or rather her insurance co) would still have to cover the property damage.

What her insurance co is going to argue is that if you didn't have your bike illegally parked on the street, this incident would never have happened and therefore fuck off. And if they do that, you don't really have much in the way of recourse without your own insurance co to go to bat for you. No police report, nothing except your word vs hers and she's gonna tell geico that your bike was already damaged.

If you had insurance, then at least you'd get paid and your and her companies would work out amongst themselves how to split the bill based on fault.

$300k Ferrari run over by delivery truck backing up



If you think you had a bad day at the office, check out the misfortune of one delivery truck driver who accidentally backed into a $300,000 Ferrari FF on Columbus Avenue in New York City on Oct. 30. The driver of the Baldor Foods, Inc. truck told bystanders he “didn’t see nothing” as he put the truck in reverse, crushing the hood of the extremely streamlined FF model. Fortunately, nobody appeared to be hurt physically. And, in case you were wondering who was behind the wheel of the Ferrari, it wasn’t the owner, but a paid driver. Hopefully both gentlemen can smooth things over with their bosses.

Damn, two blocks from work. Sorry I missed it.

That car looks like a fuckin' Mazda. Enzo must be spinning in his grave over that design's green-light.

Who buys a Ferrari and hires someone else to drive it?
