I'll just throw out that some of the prices being mentioned could be low due to the fact that the owner has other vehicles insured with the same company. My car insurance company does not do motorcycles, so I have Progressive for my Ape. Both of these policies were acquired through AAA who claims to do a lot of shopping for good rates, but WTF do I know? $43.75 a month for the Ape. But adding a second bike was only about $25 a month more, IIRC.

I've also watched several friends deal with them, and it's just not worth it. I'm glad your experience was positive but their overall reviews show you experience to be pretty rare.

Hm, good to know. Looks like I should be checking out State Farm anyways!

3 bikes, full coverage with 250/500 deductibles, uninjured motorist.

$119 a month. I live near JBLM which is considered a high crime area.

This mirrors my experience. Both my bikes with State Farm are $36 a month.

When I laid one down 2 years ago they promptly covered the going rate of the bike online (more than I paid for it), and all of my gear without question and did not raise my rates.

I have full coverage on my 650r and I pay 340 a year, and that is through Progressive, after having totaled my Jetta last year by way of elk on I-90. Pretty reasonable I think.

I'm also on Progressive, and pay $353/year for 3 bikes. My Street Triple R (they don't like the letter 'R' in bike names, or so I've heard) is the vast majority of that @ $238/year (of which $138 is the comprehensive coverage with $500 deductible). $1000 comprehensive deductible on Suzuki DR650 only costs $40/year.

Similarly, my car insurance for a 2002 WRX is $582/year ($291 every 6 months) for the bare minimum (no comprehensive/collision/etc.). However, I did get a 20% discount using their Snapshot program by driving like a saint while that thing was plugged in.

FWIW, I do not have a shiny driving record... I average 1 speeding ticket per year in the car, none on the bike. Not sure if car speeding tickets affect motorcycle insurance rates.

Progressive here.

If you have taken a rider's training course in the last few years, some companies might give you a break on the premiums. Ask your agent and have proof with you...

Remember too when folks are providing what they pay, besides their driving record and age, what KIND of coverage and deductibles they have makes a huge difference in their rates.

Have not had insurance on my FZ-07... I probably should get at least liability soon... I have skirted by without it for several years so far.

I called and got rates before purchasing my current bike \_(ツ)_/

On my 1st bike I bought an older used one and carried liability only. Collision is large part of the premium, and being a new rider on a new bike I can't blame them

Comparing rates here doesn't mean much unless you also include your age, driving record, home address, whether the bike will be garaged or stored outside, and the duration of your MC endorsement.

These variables affect your rates at least as much as the bike you're insuring.
