    Bloody rip off shysters - insurance renewal

    Received my insurance renewal this morning.
    How do they manage to sleep at night, this insurance lark is a bloody rip off, money for old rope..

    Oh hang on. It's reduced in price by £66.89p.
    That's for a total of 7 bikes = less than 17 pence a day per bike, and with UK/European breakdown cover.

    Fecking Carol Nash bastards.

    Mine was down by £4.57 this year to the princely sum of £85.11. That'll do me nicely.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Four bikes.

    TBH I know I could get a bit cheaper by splitting policies (classic for example) but am happy at that as it includes Euro breakdown and kit etc.................

    So far please with Cornhill Surety/AIM - last week got my 1290 KTM down to under £180 and the R Nine T Scrambler to under £150 with Wife as named rider on the latter.

    Then on the same day as having sorted it all out and paid for it some numpty runs into the back of my car on the Nottingham ring road

    As the new Bike policies had not started yet thought I should let Cornhill know expecting the worse but - no they checked with the underwriters and they will stick with the current premiums offered
