I’m an avid reader of PS, love it. I’ve been on bikes over 40 years, have owned at least 80, and have 13 right now!
Anyway, having a collection of bikes means insurance .... and
lots of it. I want to be legal so I grin and bear it paying the annual premium. This is a necessary evil. I accept it. However, when you want to alter the policy or god forbid add another bike they’ve got you. A couple of days ago I added an ’85 GSX-R750, for £90. and today a ’78 Triumph Tiger, that was £70.
The bummer is that every time there’s a change it’s £40 to the broker. In the example of the Triumph it means the broker charges more than the underwriter. Surely this is going the same way as PPI and excessive bank charges? It affects us all.
I am sure I am not the only person hacked off the way big business is bending the common man and woman over. I know the companies advertise with you so can see why you wouldn’t challenge them. And I’m pretty sure you won’t print this. However I live to be surprised. Layton Cooper, email
