I like Progressive

For these of you that don’t know, I took my bike off-roading last Sat . The result of it was not preaty and the bike received a lot of front-end damage. Considering the cost to repair it vs. $250 deductible, I gave my insurance a call.

I expected a couple week proceeding followed by a “low-ball” offer and a lot of negotiating. Well I couldn’t have been more wrong.
First off everyone I talked to there was really nice and supportive.
Second the speed with which they handled things was great. I called them on Mon, adjuster came out on Tue, and I had my money on Thu. ($4600 for 01 ZX6R).
Third, they are not raising my rates because of it (or so they say).

And last, but not least, I got me an 02 VFR yesterday. First two minutes of riding were shaky, I even had to pull over for a smoke, but now I am loving it.

How you found us: someone told me
my ex gf has them and they paid out about $2000 for a not-at-fault accident she was in. They let her keep the bike, and she fixed it for under $150, minus some parts I purchased for her myself 'cause i felt partly responsible... But the dealings weren't quite as smooth and not nearly as quick as it sounds like yours was. I think that may have been because there was the at-fault guy's insurance (farmer's i think) that was involved also...

But, a big plus is that last year I was paying about $850/yr for insurance, and then when I went to renew this year it had dropped to about $450/yr. Probably the only good thing about getting older I guess...
