Progressive was the most expensive for me at $1500 a year. Foremost (usually through Farmers) was $944. State Farm was $200. Who do you think I went with? All of those quotes were for full coverage. However, at the age of 16, I'll be surprised if State Farm will cover you.

Instead of you getting the insurance, have you mom add you to her plan and the bike. It will raise hers up a bit for a high-risk person like you(and I mean that because you are new to riding /driving, they all do that for new ppl driving and riding) but it will be cheaper overall.

Progressive was by far the most expensive.

Farmers Insurance was great but dont do any big bikes, for my F4 I think it was $286/yr.

State Farm is by far the best I have found lately - $580/yr for the 1K
Yea, I would say your probably going to have to have mom on your policy. But make sure you take all possible classes/tests and that will (hopefully) help as well.

Progressive is only interested in insuring HD's bulldog... Try State Farm, or Farmer's, or every other place in the phone book besides Progressive.

on while we are on the subject what does liablility cover , comprehensive cover and collision cover.

im quesitoning myself about comprehensive and collision casue if you lowside your bike it is the roads fault usually and you didnt collide with another car. would that be comprehensive like if you where in the snow and ran off the road in your car.

Dat be correct..... liability covers the other persons car when you hit it. Collision covers your car for that accident,
and comprehensive covers everything else(hopefully).

yeah but what exactly does comprehensive cover? caseu at my age 20 collision is just way too much, 2-3 years of me paying insurence i could have bought a new bike and then some.

like what happens if you wreck you bike but it does not involve another vehicle?

I might be wrong, but I think that's where comprehensive comes into play.
