A bit like yourself I'm just in it for the insurance discounts but I have learned plenty too, roads are a minefield and being on a bike has really opened my eyes. One thing it has definitely done is give me more confidence, also found it when out on the mtb when I do have to be on roads although I avoid that where possible

When IAM are looking their £ I'll price it with and without, the membership fee might not be doing a lot for me. £150odd I paid last year and I can't see it getting a great deal cheaper. Might be pleasantly surprised though

Mine was with MCE but I went with Cornmarket there, pretty much half the price of my first year and they matched the usual extras like helmet & gear cover so be interested to see if I do pass the IAM what it brings it down by

Mine halfed almost exactly but I was also a year older and had 1yr ncb at the time so it's hard to say how much of an effect it really had.

The insurance for my Hornet 600 at age 19 was around £800 if I remember correctly. Got Allen’s Honda to fit the 33hp restriction kit, rode her home and removed it straight away. I just wanted the certificate to say it was done for insurance reasons if they asked. Never did mind. 😂😂

Got my reg yesterday. Hoping for delivery 5th March, or the following weekend. Accessories I ordered haven't arrived and I'd rather hang on until they have arrived.

I did a bit of digging on the postcode. Mine is in the bottom half of vehicle crime per 100k. Not sure it's based solely on my postcode, probably the surrounding ones too.

Oh, and looking at covers here. Anyone recommend a good one for all year round use outside?

Another new tyre for the GS today, thanks to A1 Tyres in Dromore. Went for the Road 5 GT again as it was a great tyre to suit the bike, roads and riding. Mileage wasn’t bad from it either

Will be going for a set of Dunlop Mutants next as they’re already getting great write ups and aren’t badly priced, even before there’s any manufacturer offers applied.
