    Used to have Progressive for my Harley. Switched to Geico less money.

    GMAC. Great rates, but never had a claim so cannot comment on their service.

    Progressive was the least expensive, full coverage insurance I could find. I was blown away by how cheap they were (if you have a clean record...)

    I have Progressive for USAA members. (some kind of sharing agreement, because USAA doesn't do cycles)

    I have Progressive, my friend has State Farm. Check into both of those. His is cheaper than mine.

    Progressive for some and State Farm for others. Whichever company that gave me the cheapest quotes for the same coverages. I don't know why Progressive is cheaper on a couple of my motorcycles and State Farm is cheaper on the others, but it is what it is.

    State Farm, if you've got other vehicles there.

    Progressive. I check around every couple of years and no one ever beats Progressive's rates for me.

    State Farm....more discounts if you have multiple plans w/ them...ie., house/cars/other vehicles..etc.... also, they charge per cc's of the motor and not the style of the bike.

    I have geico for the bike and state farm for the car. State farm was ridiculous for the bike many moons ago, but I haven't checked in a while.

    Shopping around is your best bet. Pretty much useless to come on the BBS without first checking around with all of your information yourself.

    Dairyland was the best for me, but have to have to be licensed for 2 years prior, if you have a sport bike.

    Dairyland is worthless if you ever have a claim. I switched to Geico and was much happier.

    Progressive is owned by a politically active Leftist, Peter Lewis, who openly helps fund Moveon.org and America Coming Together. He also is a noted contributor to the ACLU. \

    Progressive was caught using private investigators to infiltrate a church congregation and gain information and spy on members who had made claims against Progressive.

    Mn.on a lake,well nxt to a lake.
    Thats what Ive found also....2 HD's....Under 600 full coverage 365days.....

    You have to remember that some Ins policies only cover the riding season,you might think you have yr round coverage and you dont..I found this out the hard way thru my old Ins....

    Dairyland covers my HD's even durring non riding season(we call winter heeheehee)....

    I go with State Farm. Its the only reasonable price ive found for my 08 Honda CBR 1000RR. I believe that State Farm is one of the few insurance companies to insure a motorcycle based mostly on the cc's of the motor rather than the style. I really like that way of doing things because most motorcycles, (except maybe those $25,000 Harleys that dont run worth a ****t and only have about 65 hp) are pretty fast regardless of the style. Getting down on the style of a bike (such as a sportbike) and charging more to insure it is kinda like lawmakers getting down on AR rifles when they are all just guns.

    Which, to me, is dumb. However, it does favor my motorcycle inventory. My hellraising Aprilia Tuono and dirtbike-on-steroid KTM 990 Adventure cost a lot less to insure than my larger displacement but slow *** German's version of Hardly-Ableson.
