I was told by a friend that I could file a mini tort claim? covers anything over a $1000 in estimated damages..
Though I have yet to hear that from anyone else, but I did get a estimate for used parts which will be or are not in production any longer due to the fact the bike is over 12 years old guess that's when they stop making parts? I also had them give a estimate for new parts ones is close to a $1000, one is under a $1000
This makes no sense to me whatsoever. I have to assume this has something to do with the crazy Michigan laws you talked about that say motorcycles aren't motor vehicles. I'm seriously PO'ed on your behalf.
In any other state it wouldn't matter in the least what insurance you had. Heck, you could have NO insurance and if somebody else hits you they still have to cover the damages. At least the medical damages.
I'm sure a local attorney knows your laws better than I do, but it might be worth a couple more calls. This is just ridiculous.
