Default taken from irish times- ebike insurance

lets hope they're up and running at last

ONLINE INSURANCE Innovative online insurance company eBike Insurance is making its journey via the information superhighway to Ireland. eBike is exclusively operated online for bikers, which not only makes it convenient but can also considerably reduce the cost of insuring your precious two wheels.

"Ebike was the first direct motorcycle insurer to offer online policy purchase combined with full online policy administration," says Chris Gillighan, the company's business development manager. "Policyholders can manage their entire policy online without having to queue up even get on the phone to a call centre. Multiple bike owners or classic bike collectors can also put up to four of their bikes on the one policy at discounted rates. To accommodate adventurous journeying bikers, free European riding cover is offered with 365 days included as standard. Discounts will also be given to riders who undertake rider training."

But provisional bikers need not apply for this online insurance. "As a target group we will be looking to provide cover only for riders with full licences and will not be insuring in the provisional market," says Gillighan. eBike will be going live in Ireland at the start of August.

Feel bad saying this but the fact their not insuring provisional riders is a good thing for us with the full license, hopefully cheaper premiums since we the elite hehe.

That's good news but they're website still isn't live yet. What's the point of getting this article in the times and not having the service available??? The PR man is doing his job but the feckin IT department must be having too many cigs in the car park.

I have a full licence for over 2 years now and Carole Nash would not even quote me on a restricted Bandit 6 because I am 22.

AON actually recommended the FR Bandit 6!

They rang my fella yesterday to tell him about their open day. Apparently they're calling all the clubs they can to get a representative to the open day. If you have a club and haven't had a call, maybe send them an email.....we might as well get as many people going as possible!

I wouldn't be sure about the accuracy of anything the 'times' prints, toilet paper.

Time to get onto the politicians ... no better time than election time to rattle the cages!! - I think the most ridiculous part of it is that the tester follows you in a CAR !!! how thick is that !!
what we need over here is some dedicated motorcycle test centres!!
I wonder what's gonna happen when the EU regulations for testing motorcycles comes into force?? (the one that has provision for an off road test first)

And to be fair the UK has it's share of insurers that only do fully licenced riders ...
Let's face it the more insurer's that do make the trip across the pond the better in the end.

They lied to you. ;-)
I got insured after having my prov for 2 months and being under 25.
It was bit of a rip off though - 1400 for XV125.

I rang the driving text people in Mayo/Clare, wherever it is, and was told that the waiting list for Raheny in Dublin is only around 2 months. That's pretty good I think.
