Dropped Progressive

i dropped them two years ago when I first heard about Soros. I will spend a few $'s more to support a company that supports causes I believe in.

Enjoy the Ride!

There are a lot of disappointments when people have this type of coverage and don't realize the actual claim process.

The other insurance agents you talked to may have just been honest with you with the limits that they were willing to accept.
My insurance has pics of the car but required the appraisal.The appraiser that did my car went threw collectors car sales books same cars on line and sent pics to like car collectors and bids compiled three sources of the information to get the appraised price.Then the insurance agent wrote the insurance for that price same as a piece of high end jewelry.

If you think the ad here is bad, the insurance offered by Harley is underwritten by Progressive.

Interesting info. Just switched from Progressive with the change in bikes. Apparently my 5 previous years with Progressive didn't mean that much to them.

It's all about the journey not the destination - Smiley

I'm not sure anybody who calls HOG a "motorcycle club" is a knowledgable source.

Just FYI . . . Peter B Lewis is the FORMER CEO of Progressive. He hasn't been running the company for several years now, and wasn't when the whole Soros thing came out.

As for who to go with, I have Progressive because that's who USAA uses for MC insurance and where I live no one else can touch the rates.

Regardless of who you choose, make sure you pay attention to the coverage. When I bought my RG, there was a Progressive agent at the dealership because it was a special event. He quoted me a new policy that "would save me several hundred a year" It had less coverage.

Short version, shop smart and know what you're getting.

you believe everything you read in your email?

these things are designed to get a reaction, and are not necessarily representative of the entire truth.

they have a word for people who are willing to make a decision based on someone else's opinion without doing any of their own due diligence and research.

I have progressive thru another insurance company. Best rate for the coverage I wanted by far and I am not a fan of Soros' politics. Though he donates lots of money which should be seen as a good thing (and some are good causes in my opinion).

I don't think one can put too much stock on boycotting a company due to the donations of one person. All these companies are so intertwined nowadays if you really took the time to research you would find someone that donated mass amounts of money to a cause you disagree with.

I have had car insurance and house insurance through Progressive for a long time, but Markel American / Bike-Line has been my two wheeler insurance company with much better pricing than Progressive. Nobody can touch the Progressive price on my car insurance but Bike-Line has always been a much better price for the bikes. Like Perry says - be absolutely certain you are comparing apples to apples since some changes can vastly affect both the price and the coverage.

I will say that the one time I had a claim with Progressive I found the service to be top notch, they were at my office the same day I placed the claim and I had a check in my hand that day along with instructions on who the body shop should contact if they find more damage than the adjuster estimated - and my rental car was waiting for me. My one claim experience with State Farm (who charged more than twice as much) was really crappy, with me having to go around and get several estimates and then ending up with them shorting the garage $50 bucks I had to pay after it was done.

A friend of mine who has progressive on his Ultra Classic busted his bike up and was very happy with Progressive's service. (they don't pay me anything to pass along first hand info...)

I have yet to see one of these circulating e-mails that was not a gross distortion of the truth no matter which side of a topic it takes - but people keep circulating them anyway. I especially like the 12 year old fake amber alert emails....

"Harley Owners Group", the biggest motorcycle club in America , maybe even the world, hasn't found any members that have Progressive Insurance
especially since hd insurance is underwritten by progressive, depending on where in the country you are.

then all of the donations that they go on to list that peter lewis did are all dated from 2001. he hadn't been the ceo or chariman of the board since 2000.

i've been with progressive over 12 years. in that time i've had to make 3 claims, none of them as a result of an accident, but they have been top notch in dealing with all 3 of them.

and hey, if he wants to give all his money away in order to decriminalize pot, who am i to argue?
