Im always looking for original bikes. More importantly though, Im looking for a way to pay for them! LOL
One of my weirdo goals is to have one original 1st gen bike in each color produced.

No new ride for me.

I had USAA insurance for the longest time, always paid up front and never had an incident. Went with Progressive for my first bike through them because I didn't know any better. When I got the 10, I got a quote through them and it was outrageous. Ended up going with Geico. Fast forward to today, all insurance is now through AllState and I will never, never, never even consider USAA for insurance again. Got into a fender bender last year and it was the worst experience of my life dealing with them. Anyway, it was a lot cheaper switching to AllState anyway despite the 'discounts' I got through USAA. For the record, I still do 90% of my banking with USAA and have never had any issues.

Thanks, just ran through Dairyland and got insurance quotes.

Way to expensive on my end.

Should mention I'm a perfect insurance risk too.
No tickets, home owner, old, no claims, good credit, etc.

My 14 is triple the cost of progressive for the same coverage.

ZX10 - 2006
15/30 comp,collision,liability = 680.00
250/500 comp,collision,liability = 736.00
250/500 minus collision = 565.00

ZX14 - 2012
250/500 comp,collision,liability = 1500.00
250/500 minus collision = 939.00

I don't ever carry collision on my bikes.

Currently Progressive

ZX14 250/500 comp, liability = $316.00

I always try and check rates on all my insurances every 1 to 2 years and
still can't find anything cheaper then Progressive for motorcycle insurance.

Maybe has something to do with that we ride all year around down here.
People in the colder states can drop their coverages down to just
storage rates for half the year.

Try calling them. Could be a site error maybe?

I would like to have one in each color as well! Need to finish my grad school first though. Our new baby is also a priority....and the house and the car I want to rebuild and traveling... lol. So many things!

I think the insurance industry is a big racket being rates seem to appear so vastly different from one person to the next (Ones with similar profiles i.e. age, riding experience, etc..). In your case Progressive is the cheapest at 316 bucks and they wanted to charge me 4k for for my Gen1. You have a Gen2, not that much different. Then for me dairyland is way cheaper, but not for you. It couldn't be that because my riding season is shorter otherwise my Progressive coverage should have been a lot less.

I guess the only thing to say is shop around!

I have had USAA for insurance since I was 15 and all through my military career. They used to be really inexpensive. Not anymore it seems. Just a big corporate machine now. I keep my car insurance with them just to keep my homeowners insurance down. 1.2k vs 3.5k. Banking is good though as you say.

I only have USAA for my homeowners, and they were great about doing a bunch of hail repairs a few years ago. My premium is not the lowest out there, but they didn't screw me over either. USAA was a lot more expensive for my truck, and they would not take my bike without taking my truck. Progressive is the cheapest vehicle insurance I have found, and they have always paid out fairly on the few claims I've ever had. I've also been with them since 2002. LOL
