Getting hosed

(Frany) #1

I went to register my 501. $914 for bare bones insurance. I got 43% discount too. Includes fuxk all too. Just to legally drive it on the road.

Were getting hosed. I remember it was like $600 a few years ago on a 530.

Jesus, that’s expensive. I know bikes under 400cc are less expensive, but is there some other price hike for bikes over 500cc or something considering you’ve got 510cc? I mean, would a Beta 500 RR-S be cheaper 'cause it’s under 500cc?

Dosent matter. Rate class is from 450cc to 750cc

Don’t get a full year. You won’t be riding in half this a bit

Here’s a hoser:

I got phones for the kids and if I want them on a separated account from my work phone I need to unblock their data and pay $70 per phone for data!

Yup, same price as the mighty 690 aka Big Girl. But taxes aren’t going up too much…

Sounds like maybe the modern day DRZ aka 390 RR-S is the ticket to cheap(er) insurance, eh?

Insured my 250 / 525 KTM. Full-year insurance $388.

Haha. Good one Al. Yer so smrat!

I gotta get some 390 stickers for the Big Girl and some KTM 390 Adventure paperwork.

Lol that’s it.

(David Renfrew) #12

Sounds like the infamous Hoser got hosed.

ICBC hosing all of us. And don’t think for a second that ‘competition’ would lower prices. For reference, just have a look at the mobile phone cartel comprised of Rogers, Telus, and Bell. Some good ‘competition’ there…

I’d imagine a DRZ would still be pretty cheap to insure, yes?
