i did some looking around when i got my first bike. i took the time to really compare (cause i was poor, lol) and i found progressive was the cheapest. even cheaper than geico.

progessives service was fantastic, too! my roommate and i both were through them, liability only. i let him ride it and he totalled it in the alley, plus did $500 damage to a parked truck.

the day after that happened i got my policy switched to another bike, and the chick accidently pre-dated it, thinking she was doing me a favor. well when the claims people looked at, it was as if the bike wasnt covered, so they investigated it. i told them what happened, and they talked to the girl at the progressive office that did the pre-date. basicly i had no proof i even had coverage, plus it wasnt even me on the bike. i thought there was no way in they would pay a dime. they totally could have gotten away with saying "nope, sorry, lol kthxbye".

but check this out. they paid the $500 to the truck owner, and cut me a check for $1700 and some change to replace my bike! (i paid $800 for the bike!) it was an '86 honda VFR 700. well since then i am a progressive customer for life...and my kids and grandkids will be too!

the lady explained to me that it didnt matter my freind was on the bike. in texas it doesnt actually matter what bike your insured for. you have to have motorcycle insurance if your going to ride, but your covered for any bike. so since he had insurance for his bike (even just liability) his policy covered the damage to my bike(since it wasnt his property, he was liable for the damage to my property, thus "liability" insurance) even though i gave him permission! had i wrecked my bike, or he wrecked his bike we would have out of luck. its pretty weird. i didnt believe it, but they cut me a freaking check so i wasnt about to argue!

well anyways, thats my testimonial. with service like that i would pay extra, but they were the cheapest to boot! clear choice in my opinion. normally i wouldnt go off on a rant like this, but its a long story and i really believe in word of mouth advertising.

my experience with Progressive vs. Geico was opposite of yours, I wound up cutting my insurance cost in half by going to Geico. I'd recommend calling around and getting quotes, Geico's # is 1 800 44 cycle .

+1, Geico

If you took the MSF course, tell them. Geico gives a discount for it, Progressive does not.

State Farm has the lowest full coverage rates for adults!!!
I can't speak for the kiddies here though. I pay 1K a year for my Zook. Full cov., theft, towing. the whole thing. plus I even upped my coverage. If your driving record is good, go with them. They were about $1200 cheaper than Progressive. Progressive quoted my friend, on a 04 SV650, get this, $8,000 a year for full cov.!

22 yr old

05 Zx-12r liability, and compehensive (fire, theft, towing, roadside, etc..)
97 Magna liability, comprehensive, and collission (aka full coverage)

grand total $1325/yr progressive
They also look at your credit score when determining your insurability, I happen to fall in the best bracket "tier 1". i guess i lucked out there.

I just switched from Progressive to Geico and it saved me $250/year on my V-Rod. AND Progressive gives no discount if you've taken the MSF class. You need to shop around, though.

Dairyland
Foremost
Prgressive
GEICO

(Not necessarily in that order)

I too like Progressive Ins.

Had them the first time then switched to another Co. for
one year then went back to Progressive.

I had to do a claim once and the Adjuster was very nice and they took
care of the bike no questions asked.
