Got a quote from Geico - $691.80. This is much more reasonable. Getting closer to pulling the trigger. Now I need to find faults with my 1100S that I love.

Don't forget FOREMOST. They actually sponsor motorcycle racing. I use to be with GEICO, but FOREMOST beat them easily.

Foremost was less then 1/4 the price on my Superhawk of State Farm, and the Ducati is actually less then the Superhawk. (At State Farm it would have been quite a bit more. well over $1k/year).

The KTM is cheaper yet, of course, I am in Colorado, but I pay less then $300/year each full coverage. (Clean lisence, combined policy through Farmers including house and cars).

Same here. My 2010 MTS1200 with Foremost and better coverage cost less than my previous 1998 VFR with GEICO.

$545/year for the QC (Canada) license plate which includes mandatory insurance coverage for 3rd party bodily injury + $390/yr for "everything else" insurance (w/$250 deductible... and 6 demerit points...) = $935 / year for Insurance and plates... but our riding season is only about 7 months long, so then almost the same again for the quad-bike & snowmobile...

Tags here are over $300, so my annual registration is actually more then my insurance. I miss Alberta, $35 motorcycle plates.

Anyone wired in an extra fuse block? Just need some ideas/pictures on where to place it.

I will be using it for my extra lights (switched HIDs), GPS hardwire kit, Radar detector hardwire and maybe a 12v outlet or 2 just to have them available. My tank bag had a solar panel for charging my phone so I don't need that and I am either going to hard wire my laptop charger into my top case or wire in a solar panel for that on top of the case. Haven't decided.
My local mechanic seems to think that none of that will really tax the charging system unless I decide to run everything at once while trying to start the bike hehe.

Similar here Ram. Tags $300 + insurance $400 (full coverage) = $700/yr, but our riding season is year round if you don't mind getting a little wet during the winter months.

At least they haven't banned you out of the province (yet). Weren't they trying to ban anything over 600cc or something just a year ago? From out west it sure looks like the province is trying to legislate/tax bikes right out of the province.

I am jealous! Although I know I was cold riding around there last May in the rain.

We actually have a pretty great riding season here. A few big snow storms, but can ride most weeks at least once or twice in the winter, and every day in the summer if lightening doesn't worry you. (There have been a few lightening deaths on bikes in the last few years).

You have some of the best riding in the lower 48. Gorgeous.

Lightening? Meh. It'll get those chrome-covered bikes before coming after my carbon fiber stealth fighter.

Lightning doesn't scare me, it's the freaking eagles to watch out for...

Awesome!!!

It used to scare me when I commuted. Stuck at a stand still on an elevated interstate, (since Denver traffic is only a shower away from gridlock at the best of times), water up to my ankles (not sure why the interstate puddles) and lightening strikes all around... That will get your pulse up. Especially after giving one of my employees funeral leave when his roomate got hit.

Riding in the canyons is not problem (although that's where the eagles are!), just commuting really. This year with little snow, the passes are opening early, so it should be a great summer for riding!!

I guess you're referring to the special rate of $1,100/year for the license plates on what the QC governement calls "high risk" motorcycles such as the Ducati 1098S, Yamaha R1,Hayabusa, Ninja 10R, etc. There's a list of them here . Then you also need regular insurance on top of that

450+ mile day. This is going to be a great motorcycle. Only 3 or 4 minor issues to fix and it'll be perfect.
