they said that their sample VIN#'s in their system all started with "MB" and mine starts with "ME". they thought it may be a misprint. I looked at the other Enfields at my dealer (Union Cycle, in North Carolina) and all of the 2009 UCE's start with ME. The older Enfields they had in the showroom did start with "MB".
If you don't mind me asking, which insurance company did you use?
Wow. I'm stunned- you both lost (one way or another) two of the all-time great motorcycles. The hawk and the 700s were both -well, I shouldn't rub it in. Good luck with the insurance. A person can't even title a vehicle without insurance here. Wht does your dealer say?
