    That's what I'm thinking but can't find anything in the $1000 range, cheapest is TD Meloche Monnex and that too with my wife being a TD employee they offered $1,178, and if I leave Pembridge now I have to pay $350 penalty so basically wiping out the savings, and TD's quote is for until Feb 2020...

    My insurance for 1 bike--- $1437- 2013 Honda Fury- Male 46 Toronto Area

    Your location helping you on this one, I was talking to a TD rep, he said Scarborough is higher rated area therefore we pay more, we are the Bronx of Toronto :( Still I wish I can find something in the $1000 range or cheaper

    My insurance for 1 bike--- $1437- 2013 Honda Fury- Male 46 Toronto Area

    Ya I'm DT also and they keep saying that is the best price they have through the company rosters they have, I'm thinking they are just lazy and don't want to shop around. Is your age and location similar to mine? also how long have you been licenced?

    IF MC insurance was $400/yr, would you own more than one bike?
