I am an agent and the XC rate sounds far too high.
Some companies categorize the 800 as a "sport bike". Hell, Progressive classifies the WR250R as a sport bike and charges a fortune to insure them. GEICO charges me $350 a year for my 800XC, $100 more than my Harley and $200 more than my KTM 500 EXC (if ever a dirt bike would be mistaken for a sport bike...). I switched to GEICO when Progressive wanted to charge me nearly $1500 a year to insure a Triumph Speed Four. Dropped them on the spot when they gave me that quote.

That happened to me exactly when I was looking to insure it. My mistake, I called it a dual sport...so Allstate just heard sport. With progressive I called it an adventure bike and and all was good & cheap! These companies have no idea.

I called mine a "big dirtbike" or some such.

Those look like standard triumph auxiliary lights to me.

Thanks. I've missed them tremendously. It just hasn't been the same bike without 'em.

Now that 'touring season' is just about over, I'm really looking forward to putting them back on and wrapping up the season with them locally.
