Lie and say you've been riding since you were 8 yrs. old, shouldn't be too bad then. Also, you might check around after the first 6mo. coverage. Last time I got a quote they asked if I had motorcycle insurance during the last 6mo.

Also, take the MSF course ASAP if you haven't already. It's a great course and you get an insurance discount for taking it.

You can join the AMA anyway. The dumbasses down here that don't want to wear helmets would appreciate the support. :)

Before anyone asks, no I do not want the AMA spending money to repeal helmet laws. Prevent new legislation yes but not worry about existing ones. :)

I have lots of friends who are members of the AMA and I think I'll be joining soon. Basically the manufacturers treat Canada and the USA as one huge North American market so if a bill is passed in the US that say, limits HP on all new bikes then you can bet the manufacturers will not be making two different versions (One with limited HP and one without) even if there is no such legislation up here. As for an insurance break, I have no idea.

In NJ you are over 25 and buy any sportbike under 751CC's gixxer included it would be $725, If you go over 750CC's like my 900RR, it would be $1450 a year for full coverage on a new bike. Darren

State Farm insurance premium for my bike.....$320 PER YEAR for FULL coverage. I'm 26 and married. If you also have a car you should get a multi-vehicle discount and you can also ask about "stacking" uninsured motorist...these also help on keeping premiums lower while still having full coverage.

BTW State Farm bases its premiums strictly on the cc's of the bike (regardless of if the bike is a "sport bike" or "cruiser") and they tend to be one of the most economical if not the most economical insurer of bikes. My mother used to work for them so I've gotten all the inside info about them and the industry in general.

I think it's been mentioned before that you do not have State Farm in Canada. Don't hold me to that, but think I've read it somewhere. Too bad, cause they do have some darn good rates. TJ and I have all our insurance with them and have never been disappointed. :)

In NJ, if you have a 'standard' or 'sport standard', insurance drops dramatically. I have a bandit 600, full coverage is 325(vs 725). anything with 'ninja' 'z' or 'r' in it includes a surcharge.
