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!

I agree, that is totally amazing.

Can someone help me find my medication :p

But seriously about the insurance, after seeing your lid I don't think I'd worry about insuring it. :D

ROFLOL! :D ROFLOL! :D (Im laughing at Pete)


Hey GodCreatedOne, I kinda like it,

But why would you spend 500 $ on a paint job? I wouldn't because helmets only last a couple years. but that is just me... :)

GCO, good on ya for handling my sarcasm with such restraint (I was trying to beat Tristan to the punch). :D IMO, all that really matters is that *you* like it.

No shit! Me and a friend are seriously considering buying a little house just over the border into Ontario, and using the address for tax purposes and vehicle registrations and such. I would save over $4000 a year in income taxes alone! Add vehicle regies, insurance, etc, and I could save a bundle. We would rent the house out, and have the tennants pay the mortgage for us. If they hike my bike's registration fee, I think that will be the last straw, and I will have to do something like that. By the way, I heard that they wanted to double it for nest year, and then triple it for 2002. It is far from a done deal though, I think. The SAAQ look like a bunch of idiots for removing the motorcycle course requirement for a license, and then having all these extra motorcycle deaths. I would imagine that they will try reinstating the course requirement before they hike the registration fees, but I could be wrong.

Hey GCO, I am sorry I caused all the grief for ya. To hell with all of em huh?
If it helps any, most of my friends make fun of my 900SS. They say I have a lawmmower motor in a Ducati frame. Just remember, opinions are like assholes, everyone's got em and they all smell like sh*t.
