With the amount of bike stolen lately, I wouldn't be surprise if they all go up a little.

I'm almost up for renewal and I'm dreading the moment already.

I'm with Principal at the moment who last year gave me a good quote, but now back to normal sky rocketed quote on the email I got he other day, so I'll have to start ringing around yet again

Considering it's a Ducati and a Harley, can you share what break down cover is included in those prices, might not be to bad after all really

I just passed my test, so called Liberty to tell them the great news. They asked if I intend to carry passengers, which I agreed to and was informed there's no difference in cover if so. "They roughly balance each other out" is what I was told. Fantastic!

your lucky man, as before a lad posted up he passed his test and told his insurance company and they charged him 25 cuid to amend his policy

Fairly standard these days for insurance companies to charge an 'administration fee' for amendments......read the small print

Was with Principal last year, €287 renewal this year. Phoned about and got insured with CN for €250. Probably best to change insurer every year or two to get the best quote.

Principal last year, Principal again this year - down 80.

Carol Nash did try their price beat thing, and did beat Principal's quote, but I stuck with Principal because I greatly resent CN's practice of chancing their arm with a ridiculous first quote, and then dropping it, only after you've said what the fuck?!

Hint CN - when I call you next year, give me your best price first, before you even find out what the others are coming in with. Maybe I'll consider you then.

It's this carry on that gets my back up as well.

On a policy in the 300 range, I'm not going to change from one I'm happy with for 30 or 40 quid.

I hear ya, but it's not just CN that DOE this, Adelaide did this to me a few years ago, Principal done it this year and I'm sure CN will pull this stunt too next year or the year after.

AXA last year €315, renewal this year €415 (electra glide and vstrom). I got them down to €374 on the phone but they wouldn't go any lower so I left. Went to Principal €337). I changed bikes shortly afterwards (Triumph Tiger 800 and vstrom) no change to premium but €30 admin charge. Still cheaper than AXA renewal. By the way last year Principal were the dearest by a long way. Shop around guys.

Wouldn't ever usually go with CN but rang around and for whatever reason they worked out way cheaper than anyone else this year.

I think Adelaide pulling out will push everyone's premium up.
