Third Party Insurance Blues

Date:
By Wom Battle

Things have changed a little with insurance structures on motorcyles since I last had one in the mid 1990's.  My recollection of how things worked in the 90's was that comprehensive insurance was expensive and third party was relatively cheap (but I can confirm that my recollection is sometimes up to shit).  I was pleasantly surprised at the cost of the comprehensive insurance blogged about earlier, but today I got the third party renewal. Ouch! $646.00 from QBE (GIO was slightly dearer). They should call them gold slips not green slips, although I might have gone a little green.

I'm still thinking I could do more damage to other people and property in my 6 litre V8 than I could on the Harley so I can't really understand the significant difference in cost. No point whining, it's paid now and I can't renew the registration without it.  Made a sad change to the overall cost per kilometre figures though, which up until this were showing a nice spiral down the further I went.
