I was very pleased when, on acquiring a second classic machine to add to my existing Norton, to to be able to extend the comprehensive insurance to my 1991Moto Guzzi California 3 for a relatively modest charge.

At present many insurance companies seem to regard any motorcycle as automatically a little eccentric choice. When four wheels are so cheap and 'safe' it is refreshing to be able to obtain cover for two wheelers for a modest outlay; especially when opportuities to ride are less than in youth, generally associated with motor cycling. Many thanks for your help.

my insurance ran out while I was on holiday I phoned to reinsure when I got home a
nd they told me I would have too start insurance from scratch.even though they had all my details I was kept on the phone for 35 mins. when I finally got my insurance and paid for it they told me about the lay up cover as I have other bikes.when my documents arrived I found I had no break down cover.i run a large motorbike club in the north west and it will be brought up at the next meeting. NOT IMPRESSED.
