Anyone from NJ...what insurance are you using and paying? I

I got a notice in a few weeks ago stating my bike was moved to the "sport/high performance" category and would effect my premium. Anyone else on Rider get this notice? I didn't think too much of it, figured would be somewhat close to what I'm paying now.

My first year, i was paying just about $475/yr. my renewal is now ~$1550. :rlwhore: Talk about a huge jump! I'm ready to jump myself to another company...hoping to find a better price.

coverage: 25/50/10 - $250 deduct for both collision/comp
Age: 33 - no points or claims.

Start shopping. ..that's ridiculous. Not in NJ, but still in a city (Bham) and mine from State Farm is $45/month. 40 yo, clean record.

Sounds about right, I use rider as well and they warned me that Ducs are being moved to a sports bike category over standard when I renew. Definitely call around to see what is available out there. Call a guy named Bruce Blum, I worked with him and he ran quotes for me on different companies. At the time rider was the cheapest.

Mine is 117 a month with full coverage, premium parts replacement (so they can only use ducati part numbers. learned this lesson after my R1 crash and they replaced everything with the cheapest parts) and 5k of modification coverage. 250 deductible on both, and rental/roadside. I'm also 23 and have points and several claims.

I did, by switching to State Farm. Only by a couple of hundred bucks, but after them wanting 5 times last year's premium I would have switched even if it as equal. Their excuse was "due to the huge losses we are forced to do it". Not only Ducatis either, the BMW boys are reeling from it too

Are you in NJ? (I see it says Northeast)

I've been with Progressive in NJ for the past couple of years (previously with Rider). Rider had great premiums but the coverage was proportionate. When I moved to Progressive, the coverages increased dramatically but there was only a modest increase in premium. IIRC I'm paying around $460/year for my '10 848. 45 years old, no claims, Mercer county.

That's what personal days are for. Weekends are for YOU.

Back on topic, Switched to State Farm when my policy with Rider was up for renewal in July. Today I received a letter from SF that they are cancelling my policy due to 2 tickets in 3 years. One carries no points, the other is two points. The only tickets I have. Imagine if you need to submit a claim.. Anyway, went online and got a quote from Rider. Want to guess the outcome? $600 cheaper for the year than what they quoted me to renew the existing policy back in July. Got on the phone with them and couldn't get an explanation. Crooks all around.
