    Newbie - Can I pick you brains about insurance. AKA How long is a piece of string

    Hi everyone

    I am looking to get a GS for a winter hack. What sort of money are you guys paying for insurance.

    I'm 64, no convictions, looking for 3rd party, driveway parking. 9+years NCB Bike value about 7K

    Been quoted 150.00

    have you compared to full comp? Can be less. Were you expecting it to be less than £150?
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Do the comparison sites and also check sites like IAM surety and others that don’t appear on the comparison sites. Also compare third party with comprehensive. Not sure there’s a lot of difference these days. Martin Lewis’s Money saving expert site gives you a clue if you need one. I find MCN compare quite good for bikes.
    There are but three parts to make up a man: his shadow behind, the road ahead and the clothes on his back.

    Unfortunately in this case,

    i suspect it's age and location against you

    My 06 hexhead was £130 FC The 16 wethead £160 odd

    £30 increase for a year i thought wasn't too bad

    £90 was the best price when i first got the hexhead
