New and wondering about Motorcycle insurance.

bigrah13
I am in the process of getting motorcycle insurance and there is such a difference in price and coverage. I was just wondering who the majority of motorcycle riders used for their insuranc? Right now I am leaning toward StateFarm or maybe even Geico? Please help me with this choice. I think I will be riding my new "old" honda cb 750 in a little over a week and a half. Whoo Hooo!!!

I have been really happy with Nationwide. I get a really good deal on Full coverage on my 76 CB 750, and even get roadside assistance for $5.00 a month.

You cant really compare rates with riders here that dont live in the same town.There are too many factors such as age,driving record,zip code,etc-.

When i got a quote from State Farm,they wanted to sell me a seperate medical coverage policy.
I ended up getting ins. from Rider (GMAC).

Best to shop around after deciding what kind of coverage you want.

I envy the low prices of car/motorcycle insurance in the states.  Here in Canada they're way more expensive.

Call around. I went with intact/jevco. Much cheaper than my original quotes from the company I supposedly get a group deal on.

If you're in Ontario check out the gtamotorcycle.com forum. They have a great section on insurance.

Ugh, here in Ontario we get screwed. Our rates are close to ten times what you pay in some states.

Just wanted to check if rates are still the same or have gone up. Planning to visit there early next year. Problem is that I have DUI charge too and looking for a Los Angeles DUI attorney to get away with it.
