Specialist insurance

I'm close to doing a deal on a 1098R Bayliss, so i've spoken to my present insurer (Carole Nash) about taking off my 998S Bayliss rep & 1098S Tricolore & adding the 1098R to my 916 Foggy rep, as i was swapping two bikes with the combined value close to the 1098R i thought it would be an easy task, how wrong i was!!!!

When i renewed the policy in July last year i was informed by CN that the company i was with no longer did agreed value policies so they would have to swap over to Norwich union, who wanted 200 more than the 1,200 i had paid the previous year.

Now, they want another 500 to put the 1098R on in place of the 998 & 1098 Tricolore, for the 6 months upto renewal in July!!!

I've rung a couple of companies (Bennetts & Ducati insurance) & was told they couldn't cover bikes of that value!!

I've spoken to MCE, they're working on a quote for me, they seemed switched on & interested in helping me. Has anybody had any dealings with them?

I'm not too stressed at having agreed value on the bikes now, so can anybody suggest a company that will cover both bikes at a reasonable cost?

I'm with MCE. Never had to try them for a claim but they seem ok. Found them a bit persistant at renewal time, calling me several times.

Insurance

I have had my policy with Carole Nash for a couple of years. I insured a 749 and MV Agusta F4. This year they said my present insurer would not cover me. Wanted an extra 400 to cover me with another company. Tried MCE and they came up trumps straight away. Now they also insure my new 1098s. Very good guys and very helpful. Worth a try with them, in my mind.

Been to the show at Excel today, gave both CN & Ducati insurance reps a hard time, they both said they would re-view my details & give me their best quotes, won't hold my breath though!!

Got a reasonable quote from MCE though, so they're looking like favourites to get my business!!
