If you're thinking of buying, then research insurance first

I'm so tired of hearing about people buying the R6 as their first bike and not doing any reasearch at all on insurance costs. Then to make it worse, they decided that they don't need full coverage insurance on their newly financed sportbike. Aside from the risk to life and limb that we all experience on a day to day basis riding these things, this is just a dumb idea due simply to the fact that eventually it will get wrecked or stolen. It's like screwing without a condom; you may not get herpes this time, but sooner or later.....

It's a fucked up world that we ride in, so do yourself a favor: if you're thinking of buying a new bike (especially if you're a newbie), get yourself full coverage. If some dumbass, cellphone weilding soccer mom doesn't hit you with her Lincoln Navigator, you can bet some jobless fuck is waiting to snatch your baby while you sleep (that chain you have wrapped around it won't stop them).

ditto - You would be surprised by the amount of people (mostly young) who do not have insurance coverage or even a cycle endorsement

Ditto Ditto Ditto!

Just the other day, a guy I know in town swapped bikes with a buddy and took some girls for rides. Tragically, his buddy wrecked his pretty '03 R1 with the girl on the back. No insurance, no plates, notta. Girl went to the hospital with all kinds of rash and who knows what else. She'll probably sue everyone she can get ahold of, and quite honestly, I hope she does.

The moral? Don't buy a bike you can't afford, let alone one you can't afford insurance on...

~Z~

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'God DAMN, What a ride!!!!!'"

I guess that makes me the intelligent newbie. I did all my research/hw as far as costs for making the R6 for my first bike. Some people just don't think clearly when it comes to something they want. I, on the other hand, was prepared for all costs that are about to be heading my way. By the way, my monthly payments on my bike are only $39 a month and full coverage insurance is only $88 a month with a 25/50/25 coverage.

00 Acura Integra LS (Skunk 2 coilovers, Koni Yellows, Spoon f&r strut tower bars, AEM CAI, Spoon exhaust)

04 Yamaha YZF-R6 (Moose's fender eliminator kit, IRP race frame/swingarm/barend sliders, Puig double bubble, HighBimmin kit)

Just an idea but maybe we can post links for the new/possible riders. I am researching insurance rates now and i find them to be alot higher than what i expected. anyways just thought it would be a good resource for people, if they had a way to check out what companies other riders are using.

just got full coverage on an 04 financed... got it through statefarm, and it's only $28.something a month. I did have to move my truck over to them too, as they don't just do straight motorcycle... but how can you beat that price?
