Question Finance and Insurance???

Where is the best places to get these done. I am a person with not so good credit and was wondering if anyone knew a place that could help finance for a bike.

Also some of the places that offer good deals for insurance?

Thanx for the help.
Josh

Nope. They're just more flexable when it comes to giving loans - better terms, lower rates, etc.... If you have good credit then it should not be an issue for you.

CU is your best bet. bike financing is very hard to get (IOW good credit).

look around your area, and walk in ask if you can join, many used to be employees only, but they've recently relaxed the rules.

your really better off saving and paying CASH.

Well, nothing I suppose. We cover insurance in great depth at the end of class and give several recommendations on where to go and tips of things to ask about.

Financing/bike recommendations/theft deterrence are usually discussed at some point during the breaks.

Just thought they were unusual questions for someone that just finished the class.

Well, just so you know. We did cover that but there were only two people that really knew what they were talking about and that was the instructors.

I was just asking around to get more knowledge on the subject from people that should already have insurance to make my search time a little lower.
