Flo's Insurance or any other

I talked to my insurance agent the other day, and she has two friends who work for two other insurance companies, and they played the "progressive" game with what they knew. It's a sham in the opinion of those folks, and I checked it out too, and agree. If you really want to find the best policy for your money, you need to do it yourself. Don't let Flo coerce you where to go! Think about it.
Yeah, I know, "That's cold"...

The little green lizard gets my MC insurance policy, but they suck at my auto insurance, which I switched to my Home owners insurance policy. And, I got a discount for the HO policy, AND the auto's. The little things like this add up over time.

Good luck!

Dunno about the States, but when I went to insure my KLR I had to go through a different company than my auto and house insurance. The insurance company I have dealt with for 20 some years said the bike had "sport bike attributes" and wouldn't cover it... Yeah, I pretty much laughed my butt off too, KLR and sport bike don't really go together. I ended up going with another company for more money but I had no choice. And yet my old company would insure any size of cruiser...

Flo got both my bikes and my boat... The World's Greatest Spokesperson in the World covers my house, cars, trucks and camper. He just wasn't competitive on the boat and at one time didn't do bikes in Georgia (they do now, but they were 2x what Flo wanted).

The Gecko wanted way more than either on the bikes and the boat.

The Gecko told me that I could ride both of my bikes on the one policy, because they "knew" that I couldn't ride both at the same time, plus they gave me a discount because they figured I wouldn't be riding anything between December and February in Oregon because of the rain. I think it's already rained more this month here than both January and February combined.

It has not rained in Dallas more than a 1/4 " in 2 months, that is not a good sign, dry season coming up 60 straight days near 100, zero rain, get ready for nothing.

Hey, I'd like to trade you H2O credits with you, but the almighty ALGORE might have issues with that. It's funny, one media "authority" says the sun is fireing up, and another says it's going dormant. Guess which ones are which.
This "Change" and "Hope" are different than what we were all told to believe in.

Plumbers are all crooks.. I know because I ride KLR with one all the time..

Insurance..

Bikes are with Progressive.. Car/truck/house are with State Farm. Cheapest rates I could find, and my Mother's my Progressive agent.. I was with Dairyland, but the rates went up big time when I bought the Wing, so I saved $300 and went with Progressive..

As we all know, all insurance companies are great until you actually have a claim.

I had one claim while with Progressive, they were great. Came and picked me up, got me a room for the night. Picked me up in the morning and hauled me to UHaul so I could get the bike home. I was impressed. Bikes are all with Progressive.

You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. Hopefully you fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
