About a month ago, I decided to purchase a used 2003 Yamaha Zuma 49cc two-stroke scooter for in-town travel.
It's awesome, I love it, and I now longer have to walk six miles in the summer heat for a cup of coffee at the cafe.
So, even though my state doesn't require insurance for two-stroke engines, I decided to get a policy anyway.
Shopped around, and landed with a fairly popular company.
I was impressed with the quality and courtesy of the agents I spoke with over the phone ( and of course that little gekko has always been endearing
and the cavemen - somewhat amusing... ) and the price they quoted was affordable to my rather tight budget.
But I digress...
Long story short:
Ended up getting the full package - comprehesive, theft, uninsured, underinsured, body injury, liability - the works. Not a bad deal for $288 a
year...I was totally stoked!
But this isn't a sales pitch.
This is serious.
Recieved the policy package in the mail today and was just browsing through it a few minutes ago when on page 23
( there's that number
) I encountered the following:
We will not pay for:
3. Loss due to radioactive contamination.
4. Loss due to discharge of any nuclear weapon (even if accidental), war (declared or undeclared), civil war, insurrection, rebellion or
revolution, or any consequence of any of these.
Proof in the pudding!
I'm floored...I'm speechless...and I'm a bit hurt that all my "favorite recreational past-times" aren't covered by my new policy!
I mean, golly gee - not even a little insurrection? Sheesh!
This is so unfair...but at least I know where they stand on this issue.
Drat drat and double drat! Foiled again!
Is there additional coverage I overlooked???
Or should I just take up scrapbooking....?
