Thumbs up Markel Insurance

I've had these guys for 5 years and it looks like their rates are going up a little.
$628 for the year, but it includes 1000 for accessories and complete passenger
insurance. I noticed a lot of motorcycle insurance does not cover passengers, or only covers them for 1,000 in medical.

I think I'll stick with these guys

I've got State Farm and have had them for more years than I can remember. I have everything, house, car and bike insured with them. When I totaled my '01 a couple of years ago, I had no problem with the claim. they paid for all the extras I had on the bike. All I had to do is have proof of purchase for the add-ons. If I remember right, my bill is around $600 a year for the bike and Bushtec trailer.

I had Foremost through Harley-Davidson at first, then when I moved to South Carolina from Virginia the rates went nuts. Bought a home and now have all of my insurance with Farm Bureau and they got me with Foremost again @ $468 a year. Not great but better then most others considering we don't have a helmet law and that we ride surrounded by lost tourist 6 months a year......

Of course it went down, you went to a geezer glide! Don't tell anyone from the insurance industry how well these things handle. And that some of our members are having to replace worn out floorboards. Please don't tell them and hope they don't read this forum.

Thumbs up Foremost

Last Aug. I had a bad fall when a deer hit me. I was paying around $650.00
They covered bike at cost, covered everything you could think of, replaced leathers, helmet, gloves and even my eye glasses at 250.00. I had 100,000
300,000 per accident covers rider passenger and anyone riding bike with Lic. Personal property damage, and uninsured/under insured. and medical at 1000.00
This year due to new bike and I raised medical to $10,000 (due to heli rides cost of 26,000) and 300,000/300,000 and it also has 6000 for extras. cost is now 825 but trust me if ya ever go down it's worth every cent ya shell out. I've looked at most and they don't cover everything. these guys do. Pay them now or really pay out later.

I have State Farm currently b/c everything else is through them but the rates are high ($730 I think and that's basic coverage for South Carolina). I was quoted $465 if I pay for a whole year upfront by Safeco. I asked my SF agent and he said they are a decent company. Again, basic coverage...

Just got my renewal notice from Markel Insurance and it has actually gone down.
My new Rate is 478.00 and that includes 3,000 for chrome.

I've got a 500.00 deductable.

Guess I'll have to increase the chrome add on a little
