Some insurance Questions??

Hey guys, new to to board and haven't even gotten my license yet. But just looking into everything first. My main ? was about the cost of insurance. I have never rode a bike in my life but have been driving for about 5 yrs. No tickets/accidents or n e thing. So what is the average cost. I read one thread were it was about 1200 for full and like 400 a year for liability only. Plus i live in nj so it'll definatly be higher.

I am also planning on getting a used bike, like a ninja or katana.

Thanks for your help!

Across all the different circumstances, ages, etc. ...

No matter how you slice it, it ain't gonna be cheap.

The insurance companies (or, 'axis of evil', if you will) have figured out that sportbike riders are a group that's prime for the raping. And they won't pass up a chance to make money.

Comes with the territory.

well my quote from progressive was just under $55 a month for comprehensive. I'm 18, clean record and decent credit (what little I have). Credit plays a large role in your insurance rates.

From a different point of view, motorcylce insurance is very cheap coming from ~$200 a month for my mustang GT
