Has anybody managed to insure a Beta Evo? Carole Nash and Bennets specifically won't cover that model, and Bikesure want 240 TPFT on a custom quote - I'm nearly paying that fully comp on my GS!!

Thanks JB - very useful!

Some of the threads describe the same issue that I'm running into, namely the bigger brokers (Carole Nash, Bennets etc) used to cover this model but don't now.

Try MSM Insurance
Here (http://www.msminsurance.co.uk/trialsenduro.asp).

we ensured our Sherco enduros with them; they were the only brokers that had heard of the Sherco 3.0iF ( "that definitely don't exist" said Carole Nash ).

Reasonable prices but 100% certainty of cover. ie. no "grey areas" whether a BOAT is on- or off-road, cover for any road sections in a competition etc.

Thanks for the recommendations for MSM everyone, I'm now covered. Shame that they only specialise in Trials and Enduro bikes as I'd like to have given them my business for the DR-Z400S as well, but they just weren't that competitive in this respect.
