Progressive quoted me $87/month, double what I pay for the FJR, and Nationwide said $122/month. I figure it's newer and worth more so the premiums reflect that.

I'm with Allstate, and mine went up to. I'm not too happy about that.

It makes sense, as that is the portion that would have contacted any center stand when the side stand is retracted.

However, it is apparent to me that AltRider did not run a new batch of feet, but instead cut down the ones they had on hand. I can tell from my pieces that they were cut down. In addition, the upper piece has angles to grip the side stand foot; on the one shipped to me they don't do a very good job of being precise in their placement or angle. If I had to do it again I probably would not opt for one as it looks like rather a homemade bodge than a $45 piece of kit.
Same. Got my replacement today and am very disappointed. It was my first and now my last purchase from AltRider. This hacked up part is not close to what I was intending to purchase, I wanted the large footprint they originally sold me.

Why would anyone support Progressive Insurance? They are one of the key players in using electronic monitoring of customer vehicles. They install a little box in your car/bike which keeps track of your "driving habits" , this, they say, all in an effort "To save you money"! What a pant load.

Progressive? Fuck Flo and the whole company! If every rider in the USA and Canada gave the Progressive the boot ... this could discourage all the other waiting to implement these intrusive and legally questionable practices.

PS : I've had very good luck with National General (Rider plan).

If you are unhappy, you should ask for a refund. I don't blame you for expecting the part to look similar to the picture they have on their website. They need to update their webpage to show the new design. It also looks like their rework is a hack job.

Triumph put the centerstand and the side stand very close together and it looks impossible to put a large extension on the end of the sidestand without it interfering with the centerstand.

I am going to purchase one anyway since it is relatively cheap and I don't see any better alternatives.

Same here, Progressive wanted to get in my pants and not in a good way so I went with Geico and pay $350.00/year, until they find out about my performance reward Probably still won't be anywhere near what Pro wanted

Not that I really care, but the little device they use to track driving habits is installed by the customer who wants the discount, and can be removed at any time, and only needs to be in place for something like 3 or 6 months. I don't see the conspiracy in that, but that's just me.

To get back on topic, I test rode a XC in orange today and found it to be a pretty sweet machine Planning to pick it up Monday

I use State Farm, insurance on my XC runs $327 a year. That's only $2 more than I was paying for my 2009 RT. Of course I'm old and have been with SF since I was 16.

glad to hear its a good set up! I should get them on Wednesday. They could have shipped the stuff a little quicker though...

I feel your pain. Mine were ordered on the 13th. Still no confirmation of ship date. If they don't show this week I may cancel the order and look elsewhere.

Interesting. Also State Farm here, and I've also been with them since I was 16, though I'm only 41 at this point, and they're charging me a little under $250/yr full-coverage for my XC.

Of course, I live in Vermont, and have never had a claim filed on my policy, so I'm sure there are substantial discounts that account for the difference.
