In­surance for three quid

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

I have a good driv­ing/rid­ing record, and have never made an in­surance claim, so I was gut­ted to find that the in­surance on my Tri­umph Day­tona has gone up by £60. I am now re­luc­tantly gath­er­ing quotes from as many providers as pos­si­ble. I say re­luc­tantly be­cause the com­pany I have been with for the last five years are well known and re­spected and have given me good ser­vice. Hav­ing got that off my chest, I thought your read­ers might find some amuse­ment in an ear­lier sched­ule of in­surance. The pre­mium is amaz­ingly low, partly due to my BSA hav­ing a side­car fit­ted. It’s even more im­pres­sive when you con­sider I was 17 and on L-plates. The irony is that the 60 quid in­crease would not only have paid the in­surance, it would also have cov­ered the tax and a full tank of petrol, plus the cost of the bike and the Ger­rard GP side­car! I take a grain of com­fort that the BSA is still run­ning nicely. Brian Betts, email
