Rightio folks, let's get a word of mouth listing of motorcycle insurance companies - including links and contact details and any special requirements/limitations they have. If you have specific comments/experience about their claim procedure or positioning in the market, keep it succint, or else this will turn into an insurance bashing thread. I'll move those posts elsewhere. From your input, I'll cobble together a sticky for this section and maybe expand the list NR already has located here: https://netrider.net.au/linksdir/view.php?cid=49. The information below is from my own general knowledge and is likely to be flawed - but here's a grab bag of insurance crowds I know of: Insure my ride www.insuremyride.com.au/ (General motorcycle insurance. I know nothing more about them) Swann http://www.swanninsurance.com/ (General motorcycle insurance - seem to be the main competitor against QBE. There are no limitations as far as I'm aware - they just keep upping the premium or excess. Can't recall if they cover gear.) QBE http://http://www.qbe.com.au/Personal/Motorcycle/Insurance.html (General motorycle insurance - seem to be the main competitor for Swann. There are no limitation as far as I'm aware... just keep upping the premium or excess. They do have accessories and gear cover included.) Arista http://www.famousinsurance.com.au/page/your-bike/motorcycle-insurance/ (Arista are the underwriters and I think they specialise in over 40 yo motorcyclists with impeccable infringement records... or that could be AC Friths or some such. I do recall though, that if you've had 3 or more infringements in 5 years they wont touch you.) Shannons http://www.shannons.com.au/insurance/bike/ (Specialist in unique/modified/show motorcycle insurance - they dabbled in general MC insurance for a while, but I'm not sure they're doing that anymore. They have lots of flexible/not so flexible restrictions but wont insure someone with a total loss in the last 5 years. $3000 gear cover, any at fault claim results in a drop in two NCB ratings, will protect NCB rating if transferring over to them from another crowd if you have no more than one at fault claim per year...) NRMA http://www.nrma.com.au/motorcycle-insurance/index.shtml I know nothing about these guys Who else, or what else can you add to the general commentary??
