well, more like an insurance company, and it was a motorbike, im not a father yet. and they actually wrote it off. but yeah. my baby is dead was in at AAMI this morning, the repair quote was only $4000ish for a bike valued at $6300, and i probably could have reduced it a bit. but nooo, the assessor is like "well we dont know if they missed any damage to the frame etc", well what the fark is the point of a quote if its not taken as accurate?? called AAMI just before, looking at insuring another VTR250, i needed a quote. the premium for my original '04 vtr was only $559. i got thru the details for an '06 vtr, and get quoted $2347 we tried the quote without my accident, and with an '04 model, and still the same it turns out the operator who originally did my quote and policy, put in the wrong category number, the entered 00 instead of 02, or some other crap. this reduced my premium from $2347 to $559 :grin: :grin: :grin: so i spose ive already saved $1800, well, kinda. but i really dont wanna have to pay so much for my next insurance... arrggh how am i gonna cope without a bike for a few weeks and who's gonna dink me to coffee nights?
