Question Progressive insurance for bikes?

I just did a quote from Progressive that was less than $10 a month for my bike. Anyone have thoughts about this company?

Given the quality of some (heck, all) of their TV ads of late (and also AT&T), I'm surprised anyone still wants to do business with this company.

I got really good rates with esurance. But there are so many variables in the bike insurance equation--where you live, what you ride, your demographic, past riding history, credit score, etc. What might be great for me may suck for you (and vice-versa).

I'd shop the motorcycle specific companies too--and look at their policies to make sure your comparing "apples to apples" among different quotes.

Let us know what you find/decide...!

Never had a claim, but my moto and car insurance is very very cheap at progressive, no other quotes in the last 3 years have even come close

I have Progressive and was clipped by a cager a few weeks ago. They totalled my bike and cut me a check within two weeks. My claim is on line and I can track every detail of the process. My representative has been in contact with me every step of the way and return phone calls and/or emails within 1 business day.

Progressive is costing me 287 bucks a year, with collision, comprehensive and roadside assistance. I'm sure it would be much cheaper if I lived anywhere else besides the ny metro area. Curse ny and it's ****ty insurance law!

$ 78.00 year for same coverage on my 2001 ( State Farm ). Do you bundle it with your car Insurance? My friends new VN 900 cost him 96.00 a year. Not metro NY but still NY state.

No, my car insurance company doesn't do motorcycles, so I went with progressive for that.
