Angry Frustation!

I'm starting to loose my patience w/insuring a liter-bike. In '03 when I bought my current bike, my Ins. company(Allstate) told me they wouldn't insure my new '03 GSXR1k, so I found another company that would. Wasn't cheap, maybe $1500yr-ish. Last year Allstate sends me a letter saying they will now insure me @ $560yr! Awesome, no brainer. This year I get my new bill....$1500! Faawk!
My wife calls my Allstate agent to ask why; the answer? "The only thing I can see that changed was that you moved from Clawson to Lapeer." WTF?!?! It should DROP moving to BFE, not triple! And by the way, I'm going to be 40 this year...I'm not a 21yr. old riding a liter-bike!
I'm growing weary of this yearly insurance shuffle. Actually considering selling... Maybe a smaller sport-bike, 750, no smaller(too fat for a 600!), or maybe a "standard" type bike like a Speed-Triple.
Anyone else wrestle w/this agony?
I need to be talked down from the ledge!

State farm is a no brainer for me. My 900 was under $300 for the year and my 600 is $250 right now. Last time I heard Allstate wasn't righting policies on sportbikes, but that was about 4 years ago

Yeah, I'll have to try some other companies before I go & sell the thing. I did call StateFarm back in '03 when Allstae wouldn't cover me, but State Farm said I had to insure my cars there as well. The Auto insurance was actually higher, and the whole package, bike & cars was about the same(within $100yr).
I'm just getting so tired of calling around every year........

Yeah full coverage and yes you have to have A car with them. When I first went to SF I put acar and the bike with them. I later (about a month sold the car and kept the bike with them for 2 years before I ended up switching all my cars and house to them.

I wont do that either, I'll have all @ one place too. I've been w/this Insurance guy for 10 years. Hate to pull everything from him, but....gotta do what I gotta do!
Ten years & he's pulling this? Didnt even get a reach-around.

+1 for state farm. They got my bike ('05 liter $620/yr full coverage at 25), my truck, my house, also the truck loan, credit card and mortage. Rates arent always the cheapest (also close) but they will bend over backwords when I got some problem, instead of having to be put on hold 5 times a day.
