does anyone have theft and fire insurance on their WR's? At the moment it looks like the minimum I will pay is around $600!! What a joke! My quote was supplied by Western QBE and I've heard that SWANN is similarly priced. What insurance company do my fellow TTalkers use and how much do you pay?

Just paid the insurance on the WR, it was $330 with QBE ($6000 comprehensive cover), also paid the insurance on my new SomethingTMSomething20 (!!!) it was $334 ($12000 comprehensive cover).
But im an old fart (35yr) with a really good discount/bonus (around 50%), so maybe that makes it easier to swallow.
Had just fire and theft and third party (ie. no crash damage cover) on another bike and it was $140 odd cheaper...that was with RACV.

Insurance companies are a joke in most instances i reckon.

thanks for your replies. It seems as though the insurance companies really have us over a barrell on this issue. Sounds like QBE could be the company to go for.
So you made the step up onto a KTOOMER 520 eh? How much did you pay for yours (if you don't mind me asking?).I was riding behind one of those orange monsters during the Nolan rally in Eildon. When stuck behind a 520, the roost put out by those bikes really, really hurts! I found that I would be blown away in the straights put on the tighter technical tracks we were about even. Cheers and good luck,
