Alex, if they total the bike, you can buy it back from the insurance company, do the repairs and get the title "REBUILT". Not the end of the world.
Is everything flooded down there with all the rain lately? I imagine the squares would be.

I don't think I'll be able to tag it again if it gets a rebuilt title. If anything I'll buy it back and try to find a s model frame and just swap it in. I've been wanting to get my frame and swing arm powder coated anyways. Thing that sucks is I know I'll be bike less for months now.

Sorry to hear all that, but you can register a rebuilt title, I have done it in FL on a ZX6.

Cool, thanks for the info. Ill have to see what they offer.... or if its even totaled. I don't think ill be able to stay away from riding for a few months while the bike gets repaired or the ins company figures out what to pay. I might have to look for a bike to get me by in the meantime.
