Does anyone know why insurance is so high for this bike? I have to check other companies but progressive gave me an amount, liability only so the cost of the bike shouldn't matter just it's HP and the likelyhood that this model is involved in accidents. HP is not that high and it's so new here I doubt there is much data. Plus this bike is most likely owned by older more experienced riders. I just don't get it, my CBR and Tuono sportbikes cost less to insure. There must be some kind of mistake, do they know this is a freakin scooter? I know it's bad ass and all but still... I'll have to call around, but was just wondering if you all had the same experience with insuring this bike.

You never say what you were quoted so it's hard to say. I'm paying $160 per year including full coverage and 50/100/50 limits of liability with $500 deductables on comp and collision. Progressive has my autos but not the scoot...their quote was high so I shopped around and did much better elsewhere.
Obviously, insurance rates are based on several factors including driving history, credit scores, location just to name a few and various discounts that may or may not apply such as home ownership, etc. It has to be looked at on an individual basis but if you think you are paying too much you probably are...shop around.

New Tmax owner

I did it. I traded my modded Vino 125 (modified to 150cc) for a Tmax today. I really needed a bike that could go fast enough to handle Pacific Coast Highway. The Tmax is awesome! I don't plan to modify the Tmax much... maybe the J Costa variator, and that's about it. Can't wait to take the bike out for rides along my favorite roads. Kind-of dreading talking to the insurance company tomorrow based upon all the talk of insurance (above)...

Pay 300 year full coverage $500 deductable. But I guess it's high because I'm a new rider

Thanks Dezzie! My wife had a puzzled look on her face when I came home with it. She asked, "I thought you were going to buy a scooter, not a motorcycle!"

Got a killer deal on it: $7700 out the door. Took it in the shorts on the trade-in, of course. But at the end of the day, I got $1200 for the Vino 125 with 975 miles on it and I financed $6500, so I think it worked out. Besides, registration was due on the Vino by May 22 for $100, so I was kind-of motivated to do something before that date.

I just called AAA and my insurance (full coverage @ 100/300/50, $500 deductible) for SoCal is $201 per year. In contrast, my Vino 125 was costing me $153 per year, same terms.

silverwing Insurance

I have Progressive Insurance and I pay $262.00 per year

bodily injury $50,000each person/$100,000 each accident

liability to others $50,000 each person/$100,000 each accident

medical payments $5000 each person (How is this different from the above)

comprehensive $500 deductible (Is this a non-accident event, theft, or storm damage, fire etc.?)

Collision $500 deductible (This must be if i have a collision)

Accessory Coverage $3000 (The stuff that may be on the bike? )


Is this to expensive for a good driving record on a 60 year old, own my home, good health etc.

It is a 2007 silverwing that I purchased used with 50 miles on the odometer for $6350

I got my Insurance renewal notice today in the mail.

I live in Enon, A village in Ohio surrounded by cornfields

TMax Ride Report..

I have been planning a run over to Silver City, NM , see the Gila Cliff Dwellings and ride some good roads in the vicinity.. return via the 180 from Silver City to Alpine, AZ, then down the 191 Coronado Trail to Safford and home to Rio Verde (Phoenix). Got it done last week. Went from 1000' to 9400' and 29deg to 102deg temps in three days! . 850 miles total, 50mph moving avg, lowest mpg 48,(wind) best 52. Avg for trip 51.. No oil use/ problems.. 7500 miles on T at start. I weigh 200 carrying 40 lbs gear. 20 lbs more than I needed!

My friend FunHouse was planning to join on his HP2, but could not arrange schedule to fit.
He and I rode the 191 from S to N last year at this time. This time it would be N to S.

Below are some links to pics with discriptions of the trip. This part of the country is such a pleasure to ride. If you are ever anywhere near the Coronado Trail or Silver City, do yourself a favor and check out the areas.. "Worth a Journey" as they say!

T and I are headed for Colorado/Utah next, as soon as the passes clear.

Thats great! I ordered the sport shield from a link earlier in this thread and they charged me shipping even though the site says "no shipping for orders over $100" - they are givin me a refund of $20

Bar end mirrors - http://www.motostrano.com/rirerebarend.html

...oh yeah, this is it, definitely sharp!!

Looks like this is whats in the picture above, wonder if its an easy swap

Parts list from PJsParts:
------------------------------------------------------
1 x MA506 Rizoma Bar Ends / Handlebar Caps wt Sliders (MA506) = $47.00
1 x "Reverse Retro" Bar End Mirror (BS070) = $107.00
1 x Rizoma Sportline Billet Grips (GR205) = $59.00

*EDIT - PJ was super quick on getting my order out and I'm gonna have my shield and the goodies above before my KY trip this wkend woowoo
