+1 Salvage Titles are not bad when you are looking to get a bike at a great price...as long as the the bike is inspected or the work was performed by a knowledgable mechanic. If you feel at odds about the bike, after giving it a personal inspection, take it to the local shop and have a mechanic look at it. Although, your inspection will likely turn up more defects than what the shop tells you. :rolleyesHouston_Rider said:Anytime an insurance company pays out a claim, its a salvage title, whether its wrecked or not.
It could be wrecked, flooded, lost, stolen (recovered). If you bought it from a 3rd party (dealer, guy off the street, auto body shop), be cautious of a bike that has been wrecked.
