I admit it... my wife is smarter than me.
Okay, so my insurance-agent wife has been bugging me to let her 'shop' the bike insurance ever since I got it. I've been stupidly playing the "oh no, honey, I did that. Big smart me got the best rate already..." game.
So I finally gave in and let her do it recently. Full coverage, lowest deductibles... $100 a year. Total. Holy crap! And may even go down a bit now that I took the BRC.
Gents, get your ego outta the way and shop it! My ego can smile and put a couple hundred bucks a year in my pocket while saying "yes dear, you were right..." So do it yourself, go to one of those multi-carrier websites, let your wife do it, whatever. Just don't assume your 'good neighbor' tied to one and only one carrier can give you the best rates. Don't just "go with the Flo" stick with "Professor Farmer" or get insurance from a lizard by default. Shop it to multiple carriers: Turns out all those TV commercials cost money, and guess who's actually paying for that? I never heard of the folks we went with, but when I looked 'em up, they're just as big, just as good, just not as ad-driven.
Here endeth the rant: Just got a few hundred reasons I think it's important.
Hell, if you're from PA, just PM me and my wife will do it for you for free.
