State Farm Motorcycle Insurance

I have been riding for a while and have had State Farm insurance for all of our bikes for many years. I also work for State Farm now for over 9 years and it just occurred to me to start spreading the word to see if anyone would like to get a quote. Our Sportbike rates are very competitive, not to mention that State Farm has the highest claim and financial rating.

Let me know if I can help.

P.S. If I can, I would gladly answer any of your insurance related questions.

State Farm also offers: Auto, Fire, Health & Life Insurance

What about the fine print on the health coverage such as you can only have it for a year no more

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I had State Farm for 3 years. I liked them, until they fucked me, because of them not wanting to deal with military stationed in a different state, not willing to even help out finding a different agent in that state. But, than again, I wasn't with Katya. Unfortunately by the time I heard about her, I already had State Farm and she couldn't do much for me. From what I heard she's good people.

Please elaborate... If that's about low health coverage for the rider/passenger, well, it's no surprise because this is typical. You can't rely on motorcycle/auto insurance for health coverage. IIRC, the typical limits are 2-5K which is nothing when there is trauma involved. The time I had a car accident, the health coverage on the auto insurance (AMFAM) ran out even before I got to the hospital.

Stas whats there to elaborate on? In bold red lettering they state health insurance which they sell. But they don't tell you till the last minute that you can only have it for 1 year. The health insurance I am referring to is not what comes with the bike insurance

I never understood carrying health insurance on your car and bike insurance if you already have health insurance

I asked my agent once.. and he had no answer either?

I am with state farm and just did 1 of my bikes.. but might want to insure Connies (Everything I own is outright - no leans.. so really all i *have* to carry is liability on them... )

If you'd like to chat offline.. PM me.. Might be worth a quick conversation

That said.. I imagine the question about the health insurance on bike/auto might be something more people than I have wondered.. Perhaps keep that public

Actually you would be surprised why someone would need the health insurance when they already have health insurance. Alot of jobs that give insurance will not cover motorcycle accident related injuries or extreme sport etc etc. Only reason I know about the health insurance for them is I was looking for health insurance when i found out that I was not covered under my medical from work if injured

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

It's a health plan, not the one that comes with bike/car insurance and they say you can only be their customer for 1 year? I don't get it...

I love my service with State Farm. Have had it for all vehicles since I could drive.

Scott switched from Progressive to State Farm. Progressive was RIPPING him OFF something terrible!

Seems to me it is almost always bundled in... until you ask them "why do I need this if I have it already here" and they say.. "oh... you don't.. Let me go ahead and remove that..". and the bill magically goes down a 3rd...

I have heard a lot about the "no insurance for extreme sports or risky activities or racing or whatnot" I believe it is true in sanctioned racing events.. as far as riding a motorcycle or whatever else.. I think the AMA won that one when they tried to pull it.. as least best I can remember... definitely worth a look and perhaps some discussion as this is something that affects well.. at least *almost* all of us... but probably not here.

anyone on here who knows me knows I have gone through my share of shit.. and I have had a # of insurance companies over the years (one company I had 3 different insurance companies in 3 years.. every year they would dump and choose someone else) -- and I have never had an issue with medical insurance refusing coverage due to how I got hurt...

I am not in insurance, nor a lawyer, or an actuary, or an AMA lobbyist or any of that... but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express a few months ago... Perhaps I still have the glow

If any of you have never had State Farm before, check out the numeros other threads that we have had in the past. I have been with them since I was 16, and I'm 37 now, and they have always done right by me.

Sorry to rain on this parade but State Farm wanted $1400 for the Monster. Yes, I'm under 25, but I have two cars with them, a completely spotless driving record and two MSF classes. What gives? Needless to say I took my business elsewhere.

progressive wanted 2500 back in 03 for my gixxer 1k.
dairyland much the same
sf was 500

shop around
there is no magic bullet.. if you don't look.. you lose

that said a large # of us do well with SF
a lot of that has to do with their rules on displacement not "class" which seems to work in our favor even when they are big bikes (1k sportbikes)

Hell.. Insuring a 20k Aprilia with them was <500 a year.. and that's half million coverage - not minimums

I have had State Farm with a different office for a year. I crashed my bike, and they handled my claim very well. Very competitive with home insurance.

+1 on State Farm. I'm with a different agent but I believe the rates and service are all around good with them. They have gone above and beyond to help me reduce my rates but insure I have the right coverage.

$2800 for full coverage on my '03 GSXR 1k with a sparkling record from GEICO, $625 from SF... I'm very pleased.
