Transfer Title Problems

Ok so I have a issue......... a while back I bought a 2003 R1 when I first moved to TX. Well a week later my brother wrecked and totaled the bike while "Changing the oil" on it. LONG story short it wasnt his fault so the other partys insurance is going to pay for the value of the bike. Here my issue.......... I have a CURRENT ks DL and no insurance on that bike since well I never really even got to ride it and now I dont even have it the insuranc company does. But in order for me to get the check through the lady's insurance comp. they need me to bring them a title in MY name not just my sig on the back of the old one. If I read correctly this is impossible to do without insurance or a current TX license? Is this correct? If so any suggestions? I could really use the $5000 and it would be ashamed if I could never collect ya know?

You need to do A Change of title only, and not register it, then you dont need insurance. you only need insurance if you are going to register and renew the plates. I just did one on monday so, I Know.

title

the reason is you can give your small children cars in their name , and they dont have DL's .. just an example. titleing only requires forms and Money, oh and owners signature of course
