Lie and say you've been riding since you were 8 yrs. old, shouldn't be too bad then. Also, you might check around after the first 6mo. coverage. Last time I got a quote they asked if I had motorcycle insurance during the last 6mo.

Also, take the MSF course ASAP if you haven't already. It's a great course and you get an insurance discount for taking it.

I started by paying like $30 a month, full coverage through State Farm. That is with no lay-up, 12 months a year. Not too shabby.

It depends on what 600 you get and your age. If you get a GSX600R you will pay more than a YZF600R or R6.

join the AMA and take the MSF course http://www.ama-cycle.org http://www.msf-usa.org/

Try insuring as a recreational vehicle or add it to a car policy.

You can join the AMA anyway. The dumbasses down here that don't want to wear helmets would appreciate the support.

Before anyone asks, no I do not want the AMA spending money to repeal helmet laws. Prevent new legislation yes but not worry about existing ones.

I have lots of friends who are members of the AMA and I think I'll be joining soon. Basically the manufacturers treat Canada and the USA as one huge North American market so if a bill is passed in the US that say, limits HP on all new bikes then you can bet the manufacturers will not be making two different versions (One with limited HP and one without) even if there is no such legislation up here. As for an insurance break, I have no idea.

Cool

In NJ you are over 25 and buy any sportbike under 751CC's gixxer included it would be $725, If you go over 750CC's like my 900RR, it would be $1450 a year for full coverage on a new bike. Darren

The best thing is to call some companys and ask..

I pay $230-$240 a year for full coverage, I have 1 little accid. I'm 24 and married. I go through AAA.
