Liberty give online quotes,dunno bout the others.
Give you an idea at least.probably get better quotes by ringing around,ye better have lots of credit or unlimited calls,can be time consuming.
Best of luck.

It so weird our insurance call at 1 get a quote of a grand call sane company hour later different person maybe different quote I found. It will be pricey regardless your first hit is. Unless someone chimes in with same stats 18 on prov licence. Well done for choosing to give two wheels ago you will know quickly if it's a short term thing or life obsession. I been busted up spent thousands on bikes but never give them up

I got a online quote of 560 from liberty third party fire and theft that is not bad considering it would be my first insurance and I'm 18. I A few of my family members had bikes and they absolutely love them

i know with libertys car insurance, you can get a nice bit off if you add an older more experienced person to your policy. for my car i added my dad as a named driver and it came down a few hundred!
580 isnt bad at all for your first bike! my advice with getting your first bike is getting something cheap and chearful, something that you wont notice if you drop it, that way you dont have to worry about it when your learning the basics, you have the rest of your life to ride polished immaculate bikes, but none of them will be as fun as your first bike that you rev the hole off and abuse it. just my thoughts.

I would go for A2, u only need to stick to power and power to weight ratio, but probably will not get insured on anything bigger than 250cc

That was my thought I was thinking about going and getting a A2 license but because im 18 I was thinking the insurance would be expensive, I am strongly thinking about getting my A2 so I can get a bike with some sort of power I want to get on 2 wheels but don't want to absolutely broke trying to keep it on the road a 250cc would be plenty for me because I would only be computing into work and around town and just riding around enjoying the bike. What would be a good reliable 250cc bike ?
