Hi all.
Well my wheel is now at the Bike shop to have a new tyre fitted and today I am going to get some more quotes on insurance. So far I have been quoted 15 quid a month for 3rd party insurance. This sounds reasonable to me. What do you guys think? Which insurance companies can you recommend?

Cheers

Glad you are getting the wheel on!! And it is a nice day down here, whoo hoo.
£15 a month is great imo, i am with Carole Nash who also includes roadside recovery and i pay £450 a year, but i am only 24 and i have only held a full licence for 2 years so not surprised


I'd go with the £15, and break that rubber in

I'm 36, Have had my license since 1985, the bike is 18 years old and as I have only recently moved to the UK my no claim bonus does not count. For straight third party only I'll pay £45.00 deposit and £12.05 a month. That equates to £189.90 a year. I think that is quite reasonable.
Does anyone know what the road tax will be for an old gixxer like this?

I guess it's about the only advantage of getting older.
