It will never go away Dr Pulley so you'd better get used to it. Right now there's a little voice in my head that that goes, "tiger.... tiger....tiger.... tiger...."

Ain't that the truth!

When I first was looking for a new bike, I considered the FZ-1, the Speed Triple and the Buell. Insurance on the FZ-1 was ridiculous, and the Speed Triple was no better. Trade-offs, I guess.

Having said that, either of these two bikes would be sweet. I just don't know how much sweeter it would be than the Buellysses. I saw a Streetfighter cruising down the road the other day. The clackity-clack could be heard a mile away. Mmmm! (*drool*)

You know, having owned two Ducatis, they are surprisingly affordable to insure. My MV Agusta wasn't that much either. My insurer is State Farm and they write policies according to cc's. My H-D was more than my Duc.

My BMW is only about $30 a month!

Yowzah! I started at the gecko, and the Uly was classified as a large-displacement sport bike. I tried to sell the lady on it's dual purpose nature, but she was having none of it. So, I switched to Nationwide. I wonder if Ace sells insurance in Delaware.

No Yankees! He's a Southerner, Sir, and will have none of your filthy Yankee dollars.

Having said that, I find myself wondering why people are always saying "having said that" here of late.

I have Markel and any bike I get is ~$150 per year for liability, uninsured, underinsured, roadside assistance, etc. I don't get full coverage. No need to since I haven't spent even $3000 for a bike in 20 years.

I spend more than that in accessories! But of course I sell them all on eBay for more than I paid for them when I'm done.
