I too have struggled with the insurance question.

I tried MCE and they quoted me a ridiculous 1100. They then pestered me with phone calls trying to reduce it but then only got to around 700.

Eventually, I went back to eBike with whom I already have a multibike policy. Took off one of my SORN bikes (which is in pieces for this year anyway) and replaced it with the the 1199S. The result was 180 (of which 30 is the admin cost I believe) for the remaining 11months of the policy.

Good result.

MCE have continued to call me every day despite being told I now have insurance. VERY ANNOYING.

He is 52 and lives in Otterburn. He said they were the cheapest but are a pain to deal with. Every time he calls them they seem to want 30+ for 'changes' to the policy.

Panigale "S" Insurance ????

E-mail from E-Bike = "underwriters won't entertain"
Bollox, scour internet for quotes, 9000 odd pounds !
Call from "the bike insurer" we can do a policy for 15 months, 1288,
Answer - fu*k off - way too much
after 3 more calls, final quote, 998.58p
NO - still too expensive.
"I'll speak to underwriters again - ring you back"
Meanwhile = Ducati insurance quote on-line = 577 for 12 months = RESULT me thinks !
Bike insurer rings, tell him I've got a quote on-line, and I tell him (well - nearly the right figure) what it is, the thump of his jaw dropping could be clearly heard,
Equity red star - 570, comp etc, "can I ring you back" ?
Of course you can - but not with a silly quote
End result, 15 month policy, legal,breakdown,helmet + leathers,courtesy bike,90 day Europe cover, 566-36p
I'm convinced these insurance companies all belong to the "society of Robbin Hoods" (or *******s) more like !
