What is a reasonable price per year on a 2009 CBR 1000rr?

Progressive quoted: $1800 - $2300
Geico quoted: $1,350

Ouch!

certain factors determin what is reasonable: driving record, age, and type of motorcycle. considering the hp of the 1000rr you can expect to pay a bit more. those figures dont seem entirely to high compared to rates where im at. my 929 was $1359 last year and $1100 this year. i have a clean record. a 1000RR would have cost me $1700 with my insurance company last year.

hope that sheds some light for you...

man they told me 543 a month just cuz im 17

a 30 year old could easily be just as stupid as me
Naw I'm getting ready to turn 30 and trust me most guys that are 17, are dumb as sh*t. You just dont know it yet, every few years you will look back and say damn I was stupid as sh*t.

Case in point me 27 out drinking punch bowl margaritas, jumping on the I-10 from Pensacola to Destin, 2 up, well over a 100mhp the whole way. Like I said stupid as sh*t.

impossible, read your own post. at 17 how would you even have enough experience to warrant buying a 1000rr. can you get a motorcycle license at your age where you live?

granted stupid knows no age limitations but maturity does. by no means am i insulting you either. at 17 i know myself and even being on bikes from a lil tike i couldnt have jumped on a liter bike let alone afford to insure it...


they put it at 543 a month so you will walk away

What he's saying is 17 + a liter bike = not enough experience.

He's right I've been on a bike since I was 8.

17 + a liter bike can = bad times.

I'm almost 30 and I still do sh*t without thinking about it.

At 17 forget about it, sure I was mature. Lived own my own, went to school and had a job. But still looking back, not as smart as I thought I was.

State Farm has the best rates I've found. I pay $523 per year for full coverage (Yes, that's per year). I'm 36 and have no tickets on my record. Progressive quoted me around $900 per year.

Thanks all for letting me know. I'll have to try State Farm. I got a brand new 2009 Repsol Edition #34 today. I rode it home and was totally in awe. I just can't stop staring at it in my garage.

State farm for sure!
Also just to clarify, lack of time on a bike is what makes your rates higher then a older more experianced rider, even though they do stupid stuff too they tend to be smarter about doing it if that makes any sense.

I know exactly how you feel. I just sit in my garage and stare at those rims and silver frame/swing arm. It's almost too pretty, too perfect.

Man I wish I had your money when I was 17 to be able to afford a New bike and insurance. Well be very careful, I know when I was 17 I had already had several years of racing motorcross under my belt but had no where near the money or the self control to buy a new liter bike.
