I have been with Farmers (Foremost for bikes) for about 20 years now. Always fair on claims and great service. Service is somewhat dependent on how good your agent is.
Mine is TJ Chen, in Concord. All around good guy and will go to the wall for you.

How much is dependent on the specific bike? I'm paying $250 for my Street Triple and was recently quoted over $1000 to add a GSXR1000 from the same provider. Are they just messing with me?

Also, but only because their uninsured motorist coverage was significantly cheaper. If i had opted out of that coverage progressive was cheaper.

If you're eligible for USAA moto insurance, I would highly recommend them. Every now and again I research quotes from other providers for motos only and also motos + car, and it ends up being 3x-4x more than what I'm currently paying USAA.
About 4 months ago I called the USAA-specific arm of Progressive, and they were over 4x more for an annual premium, just for my motos. I'm over 40, decent driving record, so I just don't understand it. Oh well.

[QUOTE=bpw;10268985]Hagerty can be a good choice for weird/vintage bikes like that. They do agreed value policies and have been really cheap for my vintage stuff. Downside, is you must have a garage, other vehicles to use daily and they allow a maximum of 5,000 miles a year.

I have $27K agreed values worth of bikes insured by them for $450 a

good to know. I'll get a quote.

*EDIT* That was easy to do online but no bueno news: Quote is $750 @ similar valuation as you and I claimed usage of less than 1.5k miles/bike/year.

Geico was by far the cheaper option for me.
Also, one insurance broker quoted me an annual premium higher than the value of the motorcycle.

Allstate gives me a great deal because I have the whole thing bundled.
Car, home, bikes.
Same here. The bike insurance is damn near free

A lot of people recommend USAA - I've given them a chance twice now and they have quoted a figure that is twice what I pay for Geico for identical coverage each time.
