On a slightly related note, I once owned a really nice R1 that the cost just went higher each year. Since I could not find a lower insurance rate I just sold the bike. To this day I'm still mad I had to do that. I hate having to pay for squids.
I appreciate the comment and insite. It's something I'll consider...but unfortunately it's the 675R that is the bulk of my insurance costs.

UPDATE: After calling about a zillion different insurance companies, I ended up switching to Dairyland. They gave me a quote for full coverage (comp/collision), towing, rental -- $1200. That is a $900 savings from Progressive.

It pays to shop around!

Nice. Now to spend your $900. That's like, 4 tanks of gas now isn't it?

With enough time I think we all end up bouncing around insurance companies to do what you did.

Man it was a pain hassling with it, but the savings made it worth while. I hope that it stays reasonable for the next couple of years...
