My son died from a motorcycle accident. I had the bike to his home residence, where he lived with a girlfriend, in his locked garage, . I have the title. I am ready to settle with the motorcycle insurer, but she is uncooperative with releasing the bike- which was totaled and not drivable. What are my options for obtaining the bike to release to the insurance company?

Get appointed the personal representative of his estate in the probate court where he lived at the time of his death. Then, file a Claim & Delivery action requesting the motorcycle. She probably will not fight it. You then get the order and send the local sheriff out to pick up the bike.
I agree with the above counsel. On a side note, I'm sorry for the loss of your son. If you don't have counsel please contact an attorney before you "settle" with the insurance company. I have seen many people settle for far less than they could receive. Contact me If you need more information.
