He needs to find something cheaper or he'll not be buying the bike. His dealer has also said that sales are down because people just cant get reasonable rates.
Has anyone on here got any suggestions!
Interesting thing is that my 22 yearold son has just had a quote for his ZX6R of £180 TPF&T, he has got 5 years no claims, from Just Motorcycle Ins through Carol Nash. What we found was that by going to Bennets online, deleting the legal protection, roadside recovery, etc we managed to get the premium right down and then we got a reasonable quote, took it to Carol Nash and they matched it.
I think his quote could well have to do with the fact that he doesn't have much experience (no claims) and is after an "R".
