Progressive ins. renewal huge increase

Just looked at my renewal premium (6 month) with Progressive. Huge increase around $100 to $625 (2 bikes). Was told CA rates changed. (no kidding) Checked with State Farm where I have my home/truck. Same coverage for $265. savings of $360 for 6 months!

I did the same thing a few years back.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Geico $361 a year for 3 bikes. I guess that's one benefit of getting older and slowing down my riding habits.

I don't have a clue why but for some reason my bike insurance is sky high no matter who it's with.
I swapped the bank over to USAA and they don't do motorcycles but even before then AllState was bending me over.
This with years and years of no accidents and one speeding ticket 8 years ago.
Progressive with the AMA discount and paying up front is about what the OP quoted!
I will be shopping come start of the year but I wonder if it's because of Austin population growth and increase in accidents.
Some of our recent imports can't drive for squat - Massachusetts, California, Maryland, Illinois factor prominently in my close encounters.

My car / truck / farm insurer won't cover my bike so I use Progressive - liability only. $75 / year.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 46K+. Love it!

1 bike USAA doesn't do bike but got a decent rate with progressive thru USAA. Granted I'm in WV, but full coverage on a 12 yr old bike is $170 a year

Whatever you choose to ride, enjoy it and be open to new experiences.

I think it has to do with if you are in a no fault State or not. My insurance went up 30% when I moved from the left coast to Alabama.

I swapped all my insurance (house, two trucks, two bikes) from Safeco/Progressive to State Farm a couple of months ago when I moved, and save about 20%.

150.00 year, full coverage with accessories, Progressive, NC.

I don't have a clue what drives rates. Allstate is twice that for the bike, but my cars are half with Allstate over what Progressive would charge. It makes no sense.

I no longer own a V Strom, but I'm still here because its the best bike forum going!
