I think they bring in their own rules to save themselves some money by eliminating high risk or trying to insist you are high risk. I have never had an accident and never made a claim. I have worked as a full time driver in many jobs since 19 including HGV up to 700wt. Been community crisis nurse and case manager and criss crossed country for years. Every year my insurance went down. Until it went down to £15pm. So next year received new contract the premiums had gone up to £25pm. So I phoned up and asked what they were playing at and they said they were charging people who drove for a living and high mileage more because those who drive more and more likely to have accidents. I said that it was the people who drove part time and only took their cars out for an outing on Sundays and a few hours a week who were dangerous as they had no sense of the road or road sense of others. Experienced driver had less accidents because of their experience. Insurance still insisted I was to pay more to cover in their new policy (Norwich Union/Aviva) and came out with a load of bullshit. So I switched to the Pink Ladies and went back down to £12pm. I think they are picking on you. Biker? Bugger Off. Cost too much money.

HD? American Iron? Owned by - you know who. and parts from you know where who are made by others all over the world. But then Americans will insist on living on their own delusions.
