MC safety class #2

well - the insurance co says that it's time to retake a motorcycle safety class to keep up our discount - Daniel and I took one about 3 years ago or so when we first started riding (the beginning rider course) so anybody have any suggestions on a good #2 course to take - ?

That can't be my bike - it aint movin'

I got a quote of $297. from my agent for my 2004 Vulcan 750. I thought this was very high. Wondering how much others are paying and insurance company there with?

Take the same class again or, like Delaware, take the advanced course and get an additional 5% off.

Here, you take a safety course, it's good forever, you dont have to "retake" the same course again to get the discount.

Insurance rates vary by so many factors is pointless to try and compare what your paying where you live with someone else in another state or city.

I pay about 300 bucks a year on my bike for full coverage ( includes medical ) and replacement cost. (for a 2006 FJR) covers my gear and 1000 dollars worth of accessories. This is LESS than what I was charged for my 2002 Vulcan 750 back when I got it from a different insurance company. ( I have Geico now)
So it helps to shop around.........

$85 per year 100/300 liability in Califonia- Geico. and no MSF nonsense, though I plan to take the advanced course anyway.
