Real Classic - - Letters -

I phoned North Le­ices­ter­shire Mo­tors at a quar­ter to five last night, for a cou­ple of small parts for my rare-ish Morini 250. Was served by a knowl­edge­able and friendly voice, who as­sured me that they had the stuff. They’d be able to get the parts in a large let­ter so the postage wouldn’t be ex­ces­sive, and would get them off as soon as poss. The prices were also good.

The spares ar­rived with the post­man at 9.30 this morn­ing! Thank you, NLM. Ed Webb, mem­ber 4676

Re­cently my 1985 GoldWing trike in­sur­ance was due, and as usual the pre­mium had in­creased a lot. I was told by the present in­surer that due to my age – six months off be­com­ing an oc­to­ge­nar­ian in– I wwould find d it very hard for any­body else to in­sure me, al­though I am fit, don’t wear glasses, etc. I’d taken no­tice pre­vi­ously of other RC mem­bers’ deal­ings with Hagerty In­sur­ance and thought I had noth­ing to lose. Let’s give them a bell, see what they could come up with.

I spoke to an op­er­a­tor called Dan, who was very help­ful and seemed to know what mo­tor­cy­cles were all about. My pre­mium is now very much lower while the pol­icy of­fers the same ben­e­fits as my pre­vi­ous in­surer. When all my clas­sic bikes come up for re­newal I will def­i­nitely get in touch with Hagerty again – I can cer­tainly rec­om­mend them.

Well done Rowena, you de­serve a medal for the in­for­ma­tion you’ve passed onto the RC mem­bers. Keep up the good work: fab mag­a­zine, very in­for­ma­tive – es­pe­cially the read­ers’ let­ters and Frank’s ram­blings. Brian Pick­ers­gill, mem­ber 5849

De­lighted that the sys­tem of RC rec­om­men­da­tions could help, Brian. That’s ex­actly how the Ser­vice Stars sug­ges­tions are sup­posed to work! Our own ex­cel­lent in­sur­ance ex­pe­ri­ence is with Lyn­brook, who this month swapped some bikes around on our pol­icy with min­i­mal fuss… and no te­dious ‘ad­min fee’! Top marks all round. Rowena
