No way can we afford full coverage on the bikes, I did the math and we can have a total loss every 3-4 years and still be ahead by "self" insuring. And I have their 20 year clean driving road scholar rate. Can't imagine what a 20 year old would pay. God bless gov't insurance.
Not all provinces are expensive for insurance. I"m in Alberta, paying $495.00 a year for full collision coverage.

I'm 44, but I have a few driving performance awards.

I follow this thread very closely. I have a NON stalling Tiger. I don't remember any effort to trace out a VIN range or build date window on bikes this is happening to. It might be worth it for all stalling Tigers to post the date their bike was built and see if there is any correlation there. I'm sure Triumph could use that info and I'll bet they are collecting it now. I'm also curious to possibly stem some of my own paranoia about my bike developing the sickness. I have one of the first few orange abs' delivered in the US with a build date of 03/11. On a side note, I like the silver frame with orange way better than the black. I got the one I wanted.

I also have Progressive and they first quoteed me $700, but I think they screwed up because I ended up paying 344 for the 800xc and $75 bucks for my DRZ 400.

I believe the F800gs also has welded foot pegs, does it not?

Before anyone freaks out, j/k I could care less about the footpeg hangers.

We moved from Edmonton 3 years ago, so yeah I know about cheap insurance. We have twisty roads though.

Went from this...

I'll put up with paying more for insurance.

My daily commute to town...

There's a reason it's called BC: Bring Cash.

Yep.

The Power Commander will solve the excessive heat issue as well.

I'm 39 with a pretty clean record. State Farm goes by engine size and year more than anything else so I can see how a 2011 800cc could end up very similar to a 2002 1200cc. I don't have my statement here, but I know it's less than $400 a year and I think it was like $335 or similar. Again, I get some pretty big discounts for having everything through them. That's for full coverage... I think a $100 ded on Comp and $500 ded on Collision.
Yeah, I'm with State Farm as well and also have a multi-policy discount (plus a substantial no-claims discount). They charged me somewhere around $250 a year for full coverage on my XC, about the same as my Wee-Strom was (and yes, I was very surprised).

FYI... I think I remember reading somewhere that the Tiger was occasionally getting mistakenly classified as a sportbike by insurance agents. That would definitely explain the high price you were quoted.

FWIW, my non-stalling ABS XC also has a build date of 03/11.
