Motorcycle Insurance

Post by Joe Brunasso »

Had a question for those of you who might ride street bikes......

I just bought a Honda CBR600F3 (financed) and am in the maket for insurance. I had insurance by McGraw on my other bike and it was a reasonable price. However, the price to add the new bike to the policy comes out to $2004 a year! My insurance payment will be more than the bike payment and more than I pay for car insurance. I think that is rather unreasonable, so I'm looking for another company that might be a *little* cheaper than that. Any suggestions?

I hate dealing with progressive but for bikes they're the only reasonable way to go IMHO. On my old Ducati Monster they were less than half the next closest quote from anyone else and that was even with double the coverage of the others!

Progressive has more classifications for bikes than any other insurer so you get coverage that fits your particular bike instead of just "bikes" in general.

But with a CBR600 you're going to get hit hard no matter what. Too many squids out there on them wrapping themselves around things so they always get classified as one of the highest risks.

Try listing it for a quote as a CB600 instead of a CBR600.
Leave out the R (for race) as a typo.

Nice try Rick :) But progressive checks the VIN to tell what model a bike is.

Besides I don't think there were any CB600's Just CB650's CB450's and CB750's ;)

(Though I'm not an expert on Honda models and could be wrong on that account! And actually there are more CB's...I know there was a CB250 Nighthawk for one. But I think all the CB's were x50's not x00's.)
