    Multi bike insurance raping time

    It's that time again!

    It seems that all these GS thefts has had a knock on effect on insurance figures. £251 to insure the KTM, then add the GS (which is the higher risk bike ), bumps it up to over £700 per year just for the 2 bikes.

    I've called MCE, Bennetts, Carol Nash, The Bike Insurer, and Principal Insurance.

    Any others worth trying?

    Cornmarket.

    Most of my bikes are significantly modified, and the underwriters not only accept all the mods - they cover them too.

    Based in Belfast.

    Give them a call.

    Nope, KTM 1290S and the Rallye. I can insure the KTM for under £200 if I shop around, it's the Rallye that's causing the hike.

    I could do Individual policies, but can only use my no claims on one bike, so if I use them on the KTM, the GS is even more expensive to insure.

    And it's even worse the other way around, as nobody wants to insure a 160bhp bike with no no claims!

    Didn't MCE quote you a low price with a massive excess?
    I'm insured in that way with them and they've been the lowest (actually the only other broker to insure me) of the lot. And I'm in London.

    Yep, they did. Then when I added the GS, the quote went through the roof.

    The current GS has gone from relatively low risk, to one of the highest risk bikes, according to three companies, due to all the thefts.

    Have there been a lot of thefts (or a big increase in twoc.ing GS's) thought we may have heard about it on here if it actually is happening
