My regards, Bill

THIS IS OFF TOPIC!  :o :o :o

The secret is to insure each bike individually!  ;)

I used the MCN ( OH GAWD! ::) ) insurance finder and after each search, wiped all the 'cookies', so that your past history of insurance searches 'disappears'.  ;)

LV wanted £135 to insure the 1986 Morini K2 350, FC, this year and a further £65 to insure Sally SRX598 TPFT on a combined policy. So, I went on MCN and for the Morini alone, the best price was £60 from LV!  :o  Not sure how that works!  :-\  Reduced price further by TPFT with 'Carole Nash Select' who then quoted £ 43-47. with Ageas (whom I believe have taken Carole Nash over?) The 'Carole Nash' price in the list of options of FC quotes was nearly as much as the initial LV quote and their TPFT quote was overpriced by a similar magnitude.

With Sally, 'Carole Nash Select' were able to shave a further £5 from the LV TPFT combined quote, for their TPFT, so bringing that down to £60.

So, all for a wee 'search' on the MCN insurance finder I saved £80 from my bill, with a like for like comparison and £97 by dropping the Morini to TPFT, which I am happy to do.

I hope this helps.

Finally, and "on message" (What twat thought that one up?), I too would prefer the Antipodean insurance model, but, their climate is sh!te and I don't wish to disturb them.

My regards, Bill

Wouldn't that be fantastic. The problem with this country as Richard pointed out is the wholesale greed of large companies being let make billions of pounds off us poor saps at the bottom. Mass action is required, if no-one insured a vehicle for a month things would have to change. Not going to happen but it's a nice dream.

Here's a little nugget I panned whilst thinking about having my headlights turn on with ignition. 2nd post down shows a very simple way of ensuring lights go out whilst the starter is engaged.

Left Bennetts this year after they hiked the renewal price.

Every time Carole Nash quote they are expensive as they automatically include a rescue package I don't need as I get it via work.

Many of the otherwise good 'classic' insurance companies won't cover me as I use my bikes for work and work shifts so can't guarantee there being garaged overnight.  I wouldn;t mind but ost of them are MZs!!

And going shopping through insurances every year is a time consuming pita I could do without.  House, van, car, bikes - it takes hours of reading small print every time.

Must stop, blood pressure rising.......

Far better solution is just don't use Bennetts or Carole Nash.
(Other well known and reliable insurance companies are available 👍)

Surprising (not) how quickly this moves towards rants.

Almost as fast as an oil thread.
