    Peter James insurance. They are a bit like carol Nash before she got to big to care.

    I understand peter James is a break away from footman james.

    I hear Footman James like to find a reason to add £20 plus after you have paid and accepted their cheap quote and point out it costs £50 to cancel the policy.

    Lots of guys in the bike club are moving across.

    I use Lynbrook insurance, reasonable rates. And they insure cars and bikes, just insured my old Mercedes 190 for £113 fully comp as a classic car, my 1999 Suzuki motorcycle is also insured as a classic as well.
    I have not had to call on their resources as yet thank god.

    Hmm. I never thought about Euro cover on my recent 7 week jaunt. I assumed it was covered in Europe.

    Hmm. Now interested in this thread :)

    Another one for Peter James, one thing you Must do tho is look round every year, some people stick with one insurer and they just get ripped off, exact same policy elsewhere lot cheaper

    Carol Nash cannot offer mor than 90 days in any year in Europe. Does anyone actually have a motorbike policy that covers them for longer. If so who is it with.
    I am currently shopping around but getting the 90 day rule with everyone so far.

    Thanks

    Neil
