I'm insured with Ducati Insurance and have been for quite a few years now and getting my policy renewed with the modded bikes hasn't been a problem, but I'm told its a old style policy that is no longer available to new customers.
This probably applies to other Insurance companies also, so sometimes staying where you are and paying a slightly increased premium to retain a old style policy is a better option than jumping ship to a cheaper policy

Yup, Ducati Insurance advised without going through the quote process that if I was receiving a quote ~200 / ~300 squids for a modded duke, then bite their arm off. The impression I received from DI was that my quote would have been in excess of 800+

MCE was the only bike insurer to provide a painless all-inclusive quote, not like the other 'ryan-air' bolt on additions; helmet & leathers, breakdown, legal, courtesy car, etc, etc. They did the lot + throw in BSB membership perks.

Funnily enough, MCE were listed in my "go compare" car insurance renewal. I nearly laughed myself off of my chair when I saw it was 2,500!!!

Like skids said, it seems cyclical... They decide to go for a new market sector each year, then move on the next. Only allowing those that stay to keep previous deals. I remember when I got mine I was told to go o DI because a lot used them with mods and they were cheap... Not when I applied though, and only eBike were interested... Looks like it has moved on again...

Received a call from MCE today...

MCE: "Hello Sir, how are you. I am just calling to enquire if you want legal protection on your policy"

Me: "I was advised on purchasing that everything was included"

MCE: "Sorry sir, this is not showing up on the policy on purchase"

Me: "Grrrrrrrrrrrr. I was advised, blah blah blah.. listen into the recorded phone call and call me back"

... not best impressed and its only been a few days.

Anyway, going to take a punt with the following URL. Need to find out whether it covers me if I'm at fault, not that I'm a bad rider or anything

I cancelled the legal cover on each of the numerous auto policies we had and took out one of the above, after seeing recommendations. The cover is actually more extensive (eg covering everyone in the household, and/or on cycles etc), and you save s.

Ash 1 MCE 0

Motor Legal Protection is now on my policy after MCE listened back to the prerecorded call

All I need to confirm now is a courtesy bike, personal accident cover & helmet & leathers cover.

If there's one thing I have learn't from this is to do a tick-back exercise after purchasing your policy! Unbelievable.
