    Depends on your personal circumstances but £140 fully comp doesn’t sound bad to me.

    I'll agree with that. Sounds like a good price to me. Are you thinking it's expensive then. I have 3 bikes on my policy and it's over 600 quid inc full european breakdown cover on all 3 bikes and clothing cover legal cover and protected no claims etc. I can only dream of paying less than 150 quid.

    I use Carole Nash for the bike and the car on a "6 wheels" policy. I can't drive both at once so the breakdown service is ideal. They also credited me with maximum no claims on the car even though I've not insured a car in my name for at least 6 years.

    as it would cost about £57 for an equivalent breakdown policy then I'm not sure why you are concerned as you are paying under £90 for the insurance element of the policy.

    As is often pointed out, comparison with others is pointless as they have different risk factors from age, postcode, mileage, vehicle value, occupation etc.

    The only way to find if CN is competitive is to see what another underwriter will offer. But do make sure you factor in the value of the breakdown cover.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Obviously cost will be affected by postcode, locked garage etc so difficult to compare directly but mine was £80 with CN on 6 wheel policy. However, CN then charged me £40 for an amendment (bike sold!). DLine charged me nothing for an amendment on the car.... As said, with datatag and euro breakdown cover costs go for it.

    I’m with CN but suspect that there is an age limit which precludes old bikes from full cover, can’t remember the details but did look into it some time back, perhaps others with better eyesight have read the small print


    Oh and I think the price is decent unless it has increased BY 146....

    My gs and 4x4 were both 2004 and I had no prob being covered by CN. Interestingly BMW gave the gs a decent discount on servicing etc because it was an older bike. I guess that policy is to combat the 'its old now and long outside warranty so i'll start taking it to an indep garage' attitude that most gs/gsa owners have (that said took it to Mikeyboy for the FD). I have the feeling that many folks are unaware of said bmw discount policy (at BMW Cotswold anyway).

    My 2017 GSA was £226 with CN,fully comp garaged.
    Bennetts were much the same.
    However for multibike policy Bennett’s wanted £524,for the GSA and the r9t.(the r9t was £93 on its own)

    At that price, but 3 policies just for the hell of it. In a london postcode you'd be lucky to get less than 3 times that cost WITH the locked garage! Prices down here are a joke. Really, you'd die if you knew what they're charging.

    High insurance costs using the London Mayor's infamous quote, part and parcel of living in a big (crime riddled) city. :-(
