O'rly? Thanks for the info!

I admit I didn't get any quotes myself, but when I did a quick search on the bike after it caught my eye everything I came across said that insurance was a going to charge SS prices because Yammi declared it that way...

Jacob: I am new too bikes and need something that I could grow into without having too much power at my untrained wrist. The FZ6 felt amazing when I sat on it too...

Houtex: Good News!! It may just be my second bike, but only time will tell.

Yeah, insurance company can be rather screwy sometimes. Geico apparently lumps the KTM RC8R in the CRUISER category, which has very low rates. That is the bitchingest cruiser I've ever seen.

These days, before I even think about buying a particular bike, I go check the insurance rates on line. Not saying it is the most important factor, but it does affect my choices. Lucky for me, I'm naturally gravitating toward the more "mature" selections anyway.

do NOT go to the lizzard!
The lil wanted to charge me for a SS.
Went through Dairyland it was 1/3 of the cost.

My 2005 FZ1 is right @ $500 for 250/250. towing, and fair market value.
The lizard wanted over $1400 a year.
43 yrs old, perfect record.
