The Key to Recovering Full Value
Some of the grand old bikes are becoming quite valuable these days! Unless you have purchased enough insurance on your vintage cycle, you may not recover the full value, unfortunately.
If you are reading this article before an accident has occurred, be sure to come to an agreement with the insurance company on the true value of the bike.
You may need an appraisal to determine it’s value. Insurance companies may still try to haggle the price down, but stick to your guns. You may need to shop several insurance companies.
Be sure to update the value year after year.
Safe Riding Environments
A true classic cycle, such as a Triumph T120 Bonneville with original parts cannot be truly replaced after an accident. Original parts are, well, original. Replication will never be the same as the original.
So, I suggest you carefully select where and when you ride your collector bike. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you to stay in relatively low congestion areas, and where high speeds are not reached by you or other drivers.
Prevention is the best policy.
Speaking of Insurance
I am a proponent of making sure you purchase adequate Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM) and Uninsured Motorist (UIM) coverage.
You’d probably be surprised how many people are driving vehicles without adequate insurance to cover crashing into your bike. And if they can’t afford insurance, you can be they don’t have much change laying around to pay for your collectible bike that they just wrecked!
