Knock on wood I haven't ever needed to file a claim with them, but they were the cheapest I could find BY FAR!

Same here. State regulates them so they can't pull any more BS than any other insurance company.

I had Bikeline for 3 years w/no tickets or claims on my Concours. When I bought the Wee they raised my rates by more than 30%. I now have Geico, and save $55.00 per year. Figure that one!

I also went with bike line. Insured all my bikes for 500 a year. Most places wanted over 600 just for the V.

Just insured my new V Strom with State Farm $400.00 and change 50/100.
I do have cars and my business liability with them so that helps.

I don't actually have a bike, nor insurance yet, but everytime I find a bike I may purchase I have called MRA Insurance in Florida (which is where I am) and they have found some great deals for me. I am young (23) and have a couple tickets, or three.... OK, maybe 4, but still, they have found unbelievable rates for me. www.MRA-Insurance.com or 866-333-1829. MRA = Motorcycle Riders Association.


Just to give you an example, on one of the strom VIN #'s I called in to get an estimate, Geico wanted like $1,500 - $2,000 per year. MRA found it for around $750 / year.

Progressive gave me the cheapest rate. Geico was actually the highest. Funny how insurance is so different even with the same provider.

State Farm was by far and away cheaper than anything else I tried. Cheaper everything, car bike and homeowners.
