It Would appear so. I rang them 2 years ago at 20, and they told me they wouldn't insure me under 23. Rang them today, First thing she asked - What age? "22", immediately afterwards - Have you any NCB? "2 years".

So got me a quote - €700 less than Hibernian.

I just received my Hibernian renewal, and there were no installment payment options, it was all a lump sum.. I think Carole Nash allow payments by installment, but this may be no use to you..

Give Hibernian a call..

Something else I had also considered was to forgoe the broker and apply for a quote online with Hibernian (they no longer offer motorcycle quotes over the phone ). Afaik, you should be able to pay in instalments.

While Im riding a 650 my (31yr, 3 NCB) Im paying less than 600 yoyos thats with a second bike on my policy. HIB didnt even come close even though I have my car and house cover with them.

My mate recently bought a Suzi GS 450 1983, 32, 1st provo and no NCB. He rang Carole Nashe they quoted him little under 500 yoyos and said when he gets his full license that will drop to 310 yoyo... I doubt he'll ever get to pay that he wants bigger yesterday, he's just using the GS to build experience and a NCB right way to go

Hopefully some of these "new" companies coming in <whenever> will also take on bikers.

I use mine for summer use only to and fro the office and have only put about 3K on the clock since I got it, theres now 7K onthe clock lol

hibernian vs CN

hi all, im currently driving a yamaha dragstar 650, and was insured with hibernian which cost me €1100 when i first got the bike. i got the renewal form off them in august and they were looking for €1600 ! i have a clean licence and wanted to know why the sudden increase and got no reply, just told to pay up! i called carole nash and they quoted me for €1300 with free breakdown cover. Hibernian are rip off merchants

Get your full license and you'll probably find Hibernian undercutting that Carole Nash quote there.

35% off.

Engine types

There are several different engine configurations or types used in bikes.

A general explanation at Motorbiketraining.net

Some comments pulled from a recent thread:

Modern inlines can have far more Torque and handle better in the corners.
But they'll never sound as sweet*..

But that sound is sweet it goes po-tat-oe po-tat-oe po-tat-oe po-tat-oe, not a very efficient engine and a very old design from the 50's afaik, but my dad has a 95 Fatboy with screamin' eagle exhaust and it is a monster to ride.
