Here in Quebec, we have the SAAQ insurance which is part of our registration fee. If you have an accident, they cover up to $1000 for replacement (or repairing) of clothing and helmets. I claimed a $700 Arai Quantum/f this spring. If your helmet gets ripped off, I think that most household insurance policies would cover that, but you should check with your insurer to be certain.

I have Allstate Insurance. When I wrecked my F4, I ruined my helmet, gloves, jacket and boots. Allstate would only give me $200.00 towards gear replacement. It sucks, but thats how it goes.

Maybe you could get your homeowners insurance to cover that kinda stuff???

Can you post a picture of your helmet?
What brand is it and what did you do to it? I am curious what a $1100 lid looks like. I thought I was big money with a $550 AGV.

Hey GodCreatedOne,

You need a webserver to post a pic, Send me the picture and I'll host and post for you

HEY Rossco929!

I did not know that about the SAAQ, Well I guess they should do something like for 300 F'in dollars a year!!!!

Did you hear anymore on the registration hike ?? It is suppose to increase to 3X the current price ?

900$ a year to register my bike ?? Not including insurance F**K that! I'll sell my bike if it comes to that! I won't pay that much a year, Even now it's more to register my bike than my car!
