Is it true that the longer that you hold an M license, the cheaper your insurance becomes?

well its just like.. the longer you have your G the cheaper you insurance becomes. But that is never the case, my insurance just went up $10/month for no reason. So technically, yes the longer you have your M the cheaper your insurance MAY become lol.

anything classified as a litre bike i think...but even a 929 would be considered a litre bike...

litre bike + 1st year insurance + m2 = rappage forsure



...insurance goes down after you turn 25 and you have M. Also helps if you have another vehicle insured with the company (Statefarm is like this). You can tell them you rarely ride and its only a weekend thing, and they charge you "recreational" rates. i think...

oh...and the type of bike matters too

for me:

sports bike 600 cc insurance >>> touring bike 1000 cc insurance

so like an SV650 would be a sport tourer and insurance is WAY less than on a RR or something.

the cc goes in difference classes. So 600 is one class.. any over 600 is in a second class etc etc. I dont know what divides each class i THINK it goes 600, 601-750, 751-900, 901 +... but I could be off but thats how it works.

Not necessarily for no reason.



There's been a big increase in serious motorcycle crashes over the past few years and motorcycle crashes more often than not cause injury requiring medical attention which in turn often leads to very expensive personal accident benefit payouts.

No matter who's fault it is, each person's insurance company pays out for their own insured driver or rider, and that directly affects your rates.

Aww...FiveO always spoils it..Though id rather hear the truth and the facts.

Experienced drivers is a must with 2 wheels. Though the overall cost of a not-at-fault collision is at a much greater risk.

I'm still getting my M..and a bike down the road.
