PostSubject: Temporary bike insurance, any recommendations?   Wed Feb 06, 2013 3:54 am

As per the title, my insurance expired in November and the Yamaha went in the garage for Winter. I was made redundant 2 weeks ago after only 3 months in the new job (so no redundancy) so the bike has to go to meet the bills.

The MOT expires at the end of Feb so I'll need to get 12 months ticket, but I can't find anyone to insure it for a couple of weeks. Best quote I've had is from Bikesure at 78 quid, which is exhorbitent when my fully comp 12 month cover was only £137!

So, any suggestions or recommendations very welcome.

Cheers Miffa, but I'll still need insurance to ride it to and from the MOT station.

As for the job, I'll bounce, no sweat Wink

i always understood, the shorter the cover, the more expensive it was.

the only way i used to find round it was a years cover on DD that you then cancelled then not needed.

whether you'ed get away with that these days i'm not sure. scratch
