Got my 12 Ninja 650 for sales tax
Got run down by a tractor towing a manure spreader while riding my Honda 919 on a back road. I figured the bike was worth about $2500 or so.
I got 4,400 for it from Progressive Northwestern and the tractor drivers insurance agent kicked in my $500 deductible and bought it back for $750. Sold it to my Kawi dealer and got the extend warrantee and a brand new red 650 for the 8% NYS sales tax. I am very very pleased.
Been riding off and on for almost 50 years. This faired sport bike complete my bucket list for bikes e. g. cruisers, nakeds, sport tours and about everything in between.
