    What, none, ever? Bollocks.

    It's just you they do not like. Insurance is a very personal thing about you and the risk you present. Something about you, your current and past lifestyle choices and driving record is too deviant to present a viable contract being made.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    They should FORCE the underwriters to offer a policy - and make it cheap-as-chips, too!!!!

    It's like that large extended family who work at Tesco's Trainingforyou, I think they could be foreign so I need to be careful I don't offend anyone.

    Force them to provide a free gsa and a brolly dolly at every red light, who can mop your brow too.

    Then, the pr wonk will be right, you are losing money.

    The underwriter of the BMW branded scheme is now reluctant to offer insurance for certain (often high value) bikes kept in London post codes. This is not new news.

    It happens.

    Find an alternative insurer that will.

    How do you do that? By getting on the phone and on the various search engines, continuing your hunt until you find an insurer that is. There is no reliable shortcut way around it.

    If you can’t find one - or do not like the terms offered - move or sell / change your motorcycle.

    That's exactly what's going on except it not reluctant its a point black go get lost.

    That's after 3 years with them on 2 BMWs - eons of no claim - no conviction - tracker on bike etc. The spate of theft must be the cause.

    I am close to Wapping - if you can PM which company you use I'd be grateful.

    Changing house for the sake of insurance ain't gonna happen.
