If anyone's looking for a good deal on insurance try Access Underwriting.
I've just insured my 996S with them, having been with Ducati insurance & Devitt previously.
Their quote came out at under £200.00, although I ended up paying slightly more for including an extra £1000.00 pound cover for leathers & helmet plus recovery service, and the excess charge is £450.00 as opposed to the £600.00 that I've usually been quoted.
My quote includes all the mods. 50mm Termi's, mag. marchesinis, plus all the carbon and other stuff I've fitted.
In my favour I have been riding since '73 but they must be worth a try.

I spoke to Steve Blake, someone who knows what he's talking about regarding bikes & mods. - He rides a Honda, but don't hold that against him!
