Insurance Cost?

Next spring I plan on getting a 2008 Ninja 250. I'll be 16. I'll have 1 year of driving experience. I took the MSF course. The bike will be stored in the garage and I'll be the only person riding it. What coverage should I get and what should it cost me? I got a quote for 700 a year and it was adequate coverage.

as long as its a new bike get full coverage. the 250's are usually good on insurance. do some quotes on progressive and any of the other big guys who do quotes online. thats the best way to see if your getting decent coverage.

just be lucky you weren't quoted 7000 a year... when I started out, I was quoted 4800 a year through my car insurance on a bike that was worth 2400... do the math...

Sometimes, insurance companies make a no sense a...

Progressive allows you to get an online quote so you can see a rough estimate of what you would have to pay. You can change all the factors and what not too. Like payments with full coverage vs just liability.

Make sure you get uninsured motorist.

Hit and runs are common to happen to bikers. If you don't have uninsured during a hit and run you'll get stuck eating the whole bill.

Medical Payments will cover your medical when you screw up (like wipe on a curve).

Just what I have heard, but I decided not to go with progressive because I didn't want to deal with them.

Liability @ the minimum and
Bodily Injury (or whatever it's called) @ 25k,

I'm 20, clean record, '05 ninja 250, and I pay around 500 a year through Geico. I'm a bit lazy and didn't hunt around though... I hear Farmer's is the best around here, but I think it's a local.

thats cause your only getting liability. which means that your only covered for other people. if you wreck you get nothing! but broken bones and a fucked up bike.

farmers really is good but they dont have complete coverage... I think they dont offer death/dismemberment , and loss of use coverage. no medical either. I still got it though cause all of those are covered by my primary medical insurance. And i work in a hospital, so if it comes to the "C"word, I think i'm covered pretty good.

for you though... I would recommend full coverage... and i mean full! medical, uninsured, death/dismmbrment, bodily injury, property damage, and maybe loss of income too (if youre working)

you'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it!
