And to be honest: I'm not unhappy with Geico, other than that they don't cover riding gear other than helmet. Good experience with them, pretty much all possible discounts.

Also, you can't say that one insurance company is generally cheaper than the other even for the same bike and rider as they sometimes classify bikes differently. In 2009 I checked a Yamaha FZ6, one insurance was something like $1500 for full coverage, another was $600. Same bike, same rider, same address, extremely similar coverage. Then a different bike was just the other way around.

You pretty much have to shop around even if you're just switching bikes. When the Tiger 800 came out here, some insurers classified the non-XC as a sportbike while others classified it as a tourer or dual sport. Makes a HUGE difference in the price.

Oh, and I just checked Progressive vs. Geico for our current bikes (2013 R1200R, 2014 R1200GS) ... about $1000 more per year than Geico. We'd have to crash often to make the gear coverage worthwhile. And so far, we didn't crash often.
