Well I can give a BIG thumbs up for Footman James, just google, they do classics policies for Bimotas and as long as you have 50% Classics they classify the entire policy for multibikes as Classics.i.e. cheap, should appeal to those North of the Border. For classics they say 15 years or older qualifies, but, and you may have to remind them, they classify BIMOTAS as Classics from just 10 years old onwards. I have 2 bikes on a classics policy with them for 240 per year Fully comp, garaged, locked etc, european cover thrown in, legal cover, recovery all in. I rang about adding my recently acquired DB4, and they added it to the multibike policy for just 38GBP extra, mostly because they have a 25GBP admin charge for changing a policy. I was well happy, that is with 2 years NCD and I'm a sprightly 46 years of age. Oh and the girlie is also covered t ride as a named rider on the same policy. Cannot speak higher of them for providing cover. NEver claimed yet so can't comment on that part

I am presuming that they are both over 10 Years Old Oily, as when you call them remond them that under their terms Bimotas classify as classics after 10 years and not 15 years like other bikes under their policies.
I have 3 with them and am paying less than that as they are "classics"

Yeah, both over 10 years old.

Just had a quote from Bennett's for comparison and they only want 150 the pair Shocked

F.J will be getting a stern talking to on Monday Laughing

So- effectively, my sb8r was manufactured in 98, but 2004 was its first registration- does the insurance run on manufactured year or registrated?( first time ive insured a late registrered bike).Wink

Got off the phone to them 5 minuets ago. They dropped my premium 50 without even arguing so I had them knock another 20 off as a matter of principle because I felt cheated they wouldn't argue. In the mean time Carol Nash quoted me 179 Shocked first time I've ever had a decent quote from them. To sum up.....my insurance with F.J. is now cheaper this year than last year Wink

And if we all keep buying more bikes, that means more work fettling and less time riding, thus the premiums should come down even further, lets face it we can only ride one at a time, with that policy I hope for another 10 bikes and the insurance company can start paying me instead Laughing

By comparison, I had a nightmare with Bennets trying to insure the Db4, they would only insure it on the frame number if I had 2 years no claims on THAT bike, as NCD from other bikes they wouldn't carry across, thus they were telling me if they could insure it I would have to have had it insured for 2 years first then they could insure it, Catch 22 or what. FJ for me every time so far

Just been trying to sort my Edwards, Superlight and the new Multistrada that the appeared in my garage last week.
Carol Nash are quoting 372 FC and 266 TPF&T with 5 NCB.
How does it work with my YB11, it was registered 2003, is there any way of finding out when it was made? Not that i'd insure it this year anyway, or rather put it on the insurance with the others as it's already covered on a seprate policy which doesn't run out till Aug. NC30 was 50 TPO, seperate policy again.
Might be best trying to group the Superlight (94) with the Edwards (03) on a classic policy and then sticking the Multi on a sperate policy, which i was quoted 70 for TPF&T

Look at the previous threads, the issue Phil is the age of the bikes, Footman James and others do "classics" at 15 years or older, but you can have new bikes in there also as long as the classics make up 50% by quantity of the bikes. And FJ classify Bimota as Classics from 10 years old and more. Thus for me if I buy one more bike over 15 years old then all 6 bikes would be covered under a fully comp poilcy, legal and european cover, and breakdown cover for less than 300 for all the bikes for a year, simples, Now wheres that 6'th bike over 15 years old...maybe a 900SS with a white frame, say a 93 model? Laughing
