Titles

I have to give props to Gus for pointing this out to me because I really didn't care so much before. When my bike was purchased it did not have a legible VIN "plate" so it was titled based on a set of numbers and letters stamped to the engine (different from the engine serial number). This number matches what is on the IL title. Then I got to thinking...what if <knock on wood> my engine blows a hole in the crankcase or something and I have to replace the engine. Am I f*cked?

VIN number is stamped onto the steering neck and should match the title.
