After a few month's of discussion with my insurance company after I was knocked off , we came to an agreement this week on money.
And then as if the God's were smiling a new Bimota turns up in the UK for sale.
Taking this as a sign , I thought I could not disobey the divine intervention and purchase said Bimota yesterday. ( Boy am I in trouble )

New toy loaded for home. Very Happy




Late when I got home , no time to play Crying or Very sad




straight in the garage and then time to be nice to Mrs Vort !! Rolling Eyes

Problem was the rare nature of Bimota's really.

No dealers, no factory ( well that answer's emails, whether open or closed) , no way to get part prices and even if they could probably not available to buy and then no list's in their Glasses guide for a value , basically no information so it was a bit of an uphill battle plus turns out agreed value is not actually agreed unless a comparison is available.

I would recommend that when your insurance comes everyone takes a good look at their value and terms and conditions. Also the condition/availability of what is out there and how value changes with condition.

I would also recommend camera's as it appears the insurance companies are not bothered these days about who's fault it is, they just go 50/50 fault as it saves them solicitor's fee's and both people lose their no claims.

My insurance had a third party claims handler outfit actually looking after the case and they are obviously on a set fee per claim as they did'nt want to put any effort into research. This was all left up to me , but to be fair after I got all the info together they actually checked up on some of them and then agreed a value.
