I have got to say this. KPaul you suck. You have taken an enjoyabe webstie and turned it to sh#t. I hear enough about politics everywhere else in life, I don't need it here. I have to sift through all your garbage just to read about bikes. MO shut him up! Please.

They're both the same levels of coverage. Both had similar purchase prices. I don't know if the insurance company has a list of performance bikes, but I imagine number of models stolen, incidence of model wrecking, etc. would have more influence than just displacement.

Sadly, they've stopped making Magnas (my first bike), although one might be able to find a 'new' one at the dealership. I bought my '96 in 1998, and it was outstanding. *sniff*

Anyhow, he seems to be looking at new bikes.

Why don't you take your lunatic opinions somewhere else, dumbass? This is a motorcycle forum.

There are still '03s around.



Too bad they dropped it. It is a nice alternative to the boring V-twins of the liter class and below. It'll smoke any of the 1100 Shadows or Stars.

She won't let me look in the bag. It's probably just as well.



The new bike will depend on the state of the exchequer next year. 11K for a Falco will be pushing it. The Speed Triple is more likely.



Unless the Harley market finally tanks! Used FXWGs for a song! Woohoo!



Whatever I get probably won't be Japanese. I've already got 4.

I too would rather have the Speed Four than the 599. Better suspenders and 10x the cool points!

I've got our cars with State Farm and my agent tells me it's strictly displacement based.



So a 1200cc sportster costs more for me to insure than an R1.



No perks for MSF or factory anti-theft devices like the new Ducatis have.



I'm married & in my 30s and an R6 will cost me about $400/yr full coverage, while an R1 would be about $700/yr. Not bad, IMO.
