    Any advice on who provides good motorcycle insurance? I know your all going to say "go compare" but I ******* hate that advert and I swore I would never use their site.

    I have had a look and Bennets, any others???

    Bennets gave me a good price last year and I went with them but never needed to talk to them again, they don't get amazing reviews though.

    The Bike Insurer seem to be happy to sponsor a lot of bike sport on Eurosport so I'm guessing they might be someone to look at?

    I've used express insurance for the last few years, never had to claim so only delt with sales.

    They are cheap and they insure me to ride any bike third party, as long as it is insured, much to my satisfaction!

    Next year I'll probably be with someone else, and so on and so on...

    I was looking around recently and almost all the companies who offered this have ceased to do so. If you manage to find anyone, do tell :p

    Avoid Bennets

    Tesco/Compare the market/confused etc etc .

    Not many will give you a bonus for no claims on a car (some will though )

    I am with swinton this year and £123 fc on a 1000cc Aprilia Tuono (4 years ncb)

    My lads for a Dt125 FC is £300 (22 no ncb)

    I've been with Carole Nash for as long as I've been riding, but Bennetts have given me competitive quotes as well. The thing to do is run a comparison or two then phone up a few companies and ask them to beat your best quote.

    Nowhere I know of will take your car insurance no claims into account.

    BikeSure were the cheapest for me, found them via TescoGoMeerkat.

    Had no complaints when they were dealing with my accident either

    I changed from Bennets to Carol Nash. Better cover, lower excess & cheaper premium :)

    i used confused.com and it was with H&R insurance.

    still got the injury side ongoing but the bike was settled and paid out fairly in about 4 months.

    i didn't even start off the claim as i was incapacitated so it was all done without my knowledge and the first i knew of it was a cheque in my hand.

    eBike Insurance.

    Gave me a fantastic quote both years I was riding and had no problems settling a claim. Its all online, but seeing as you're here that shouldn't be a problem.
