    Enduro bike insurance recommendations anyone?

    I've just had my multi bike insurance renewal come through at £400 f/c which I'm more than happy with but have just added a CCM404ds to my collection. Devitts are wanting £650 now with the extra bike when the existing policy runs out next month, blaming "insurance companies often won't cover off road bikes". They've added it for now ahead of the renewal which gives me a few weeks to ponder over it but I'm thinking that I should be able to insure it more cheaply separately from the others even with no no claims discount which is on the multi bike policy.

    I'd rather be out riding the new toy rather than trawling through insurance websites so would be grateful of you good folks to offer any recommendations on companies I should approach if you have had similar experiences?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jo

    Thank you :-) I've tried them, just for the CCM they're coming up at £235 with a £500 excess. CN are £257 with a £150 excess (and being quite nick able, the low excess is appealing) my problem is that my full no claims discount is on the other policy, I think I might be fighting a lost cause here.

    Any idea how many bikes CN will allow up to on a multi bike policy? I've currently got 4 on the road and the GS will be joining them again soon

    Thanks for the above advice fellas, I'm sorted now. After a fair bit of to-ing and fro-ing and speaking to managers, Devitts have managed to knock a whopping £229 off their previous quote, meaning I've added the CCM on for just £22.50 with £175 excess. Needless to say, I'm happy with that and it pays to challenge them

    Presumably your 'off-road' bike is a fully road-legal road bike?

    It was the insurance who classed it as an "off-road bike" - I classed it as what it is "a fully road legal bike that goes off road green laning" but it still falls into the highly "pinchable" category apparently
