I'm with State Farm and have been told that the displacement is the big factor.  I remember my GSXR1000 was like $600/yr (though I was 20 at the time) but it doesn't seem to matter anymore, my 650, 750, and 1000 are all within spitting distance of each other and all under $100/yr.

Spend a long time shopping insurance, it pays off. When I had the ZX-6R it was $2500/year at Merkel, $1250/yr at Progerssive, and $600/yr through State Farm for same coverage. State Farm paid off there because they only care how many cc's a bike has when considering the insurance rating. My Multi on the other hand is insured through Progressive at $435/year. They consider the bike type and put much less into the fact that it is a 1000cc bike. Allstate quoted $1200/year for the Multi and State Farm was somewhere in that range as well. AAA wouldn't insure sport bikes or Ducatis so I couldn't get a multi-product discount.  down They are still the cheapest for my car though....

Re: Modeysikuls.

I couldn't combine my motorcycle with my auto/homeowner's policy I currently have, otherwise my motorcycle insurance would cost next to nothing.

My bike is insured with the absolute bare minimum of coverage through SafeCo, because even a fully-optioned out policy isn't going to pay me for what the bike is worth to me if I crash it. I didn't report my lowside two years ago to the insurance company, even though the bike had about two thousand dollars (to an adjuster using OEM body parts) of damage. I fixed it myself for less than $500, repairing plastics and doing a full re-spray.

I think that even though the VFR is a 'sport bike' and 748cc (big bore sized to insurers), that the insurance is less than $250 a year. The insurance company is also taking into account that the bike likely will NOT be used from mid-November through most of April.

Re: Modeysikuls.

Alright, so it looks like the quote I got from State Farm (also have my homowner & auto insurance with them) was ~$290 per year.  That's slightly over half what I was getting from Geico and Progressive.

I've called/visited 3 dealerships, and so far the best price is $8,613 for a base Wee-Strom after tax, title, and registration.  I have yet to negotiate that, but I'm looking for input on what you guys think I could get it down to.  The price is pretty damn good as it is now (in my uneducated opinion), and I'd be happy to pay it if he said that's his final offer.

Thoughts?  Thanks in advance.

Re: Modeysikuls.

0% for 60 months = $143.55 per month
insurance = ~$24.17 per month

$167.72 per month.  Only off by a factor of 40%!  wink

I'll only be able to ride it for a little over half of the year.  I wonder how jumpy I'm going to be during the winter months when I'm making payments and not getting to enjoy the bike.  However...I have a coworker who rides his BMW tourer in the middle of the winter whenever possible.  If there's no ice on the roads, it's out in the parking lot.  Anyone else here crazy enough to do this?

Re: Modeysikuls.

Check Strom Trooper for what you might be able to negotiate to. Bad timing though, riding season is about to start up so they won't be negotiating as much.

I paid $5900 for my 06 with two sets of sidecases, trunk and some other stuff - plus 15K miles:

I'd say $8613 OTD is a pretty good deal.
Plus, the newer Wees use the same cams & timing of the SV - about 10 more hp, IIRC.  Oh, and ABS!  up

The local dirt-cheap dealer around these parts has your bike for [url=http://www.hondaeasttoledo.com/default.asp?page=xNewInventoryDetail&id=323283&p=1&f=&make=suzuki&vtype=motorcycle%20/%20scooter&cat=&s=Year&dbig_smile&i=&l=&t=&sq=&vg=&vt=motorcycle%20%2F%20scooter&family=null&year=&model=v-strom%20650%20abs&sd=&fAmtRange=&floorplan=null&length=&weight=&lat=&lng=&miles=]$7699[/url] before TTL - I think you're getting a pretty good deal!

Re: Modeysikuls.

He wouldn't budge at all on the price.  Still the best one in town, and well below MSRP.  (MSRP is $8300, got it for $7500 + $350 freight + $628 tax + $135 registration & title)

The bike is still in a crate.  Once it warms up a little bit, I'll go to pick it up and post pics in my already-too-full garage.

I think the Adventure bags are Trax IIRC.  They can leak but are decent.  I'd take a good look at Happy Trails or Jesse if you want hard bags, Giant Loop or Wolfman if you want soft.  I got my scratch and dent Happy Trails for like $580 to my door and they're bulletproof.

What's your opinion of the Givi Trekker set?  So far, I'd like to get a 46 L one for up top and two 33s on the sides.  Is there any reason you didn't mention Givi?  I like how easily removable the cases are as I don't plan to leave them on the bike unless I really need them.  On initial look, it doesn't look like the Happy Trails or Jesse hard bags have that option.
