Got my house and vehicles insured with Farmers, called them up and they were very well priced for my 07 SG but when I told them I took the MSF experienced rider course they said there was no motorcycle discount for that but they would give me $12.00 off my auto for it. Doesn't make sence but I called back and that is what they do.

ACLU backs the wrong horse more often than anyone, except for the freekin FRENCH!

State Farm doesn't offer the discount for the MSF either.
Not the basic, but they do (or did, I switched back to Geico last year) for the intermediate and advanced courses. My father in law is a trainer at SF, and he retakes the advanced course every few years to keep the discount.

Thanks for the info 4merRacer. I only checked with USAA once, when I bought my first Buell (2002) and the might have said something about the no-helmet law. I just remember hearing they go through Progressive, and since I had already gotten my insane quote from them, figured it wasn't worth the effort.

Just out of curiousity HalfBreed, what does your increased donations to the ACLU have to do w/GW getting into office? I don't want to jump into a political thread about it, so maybe we can continue this in the actual Political forum. Not bagging you, just not really understanding the reasoning is all.

I have Progressive on two bikes and one actually went up from last year. I am thinking about changing just because of the ACLU a$$holes.....they sue and use the taxpayers money to do it. If Progressive is not good on paying claims........then who is????

What companies have you had a good experience with in paying claims. I know from friends that USAA is a super company regarding claim payout but I don't qualify for them. Saving $50 or $100 a year is not worth the hassle you go through if something happens and they screw you over in 2 or 3 thousand dollars worth of claims.....and why do they call it a "Premium"??? I get an electric BILL, a gas BILL, a tax BILL, I make a car PAYMENT or a bike PAYMENT......but I get to pay an insurance PREMIUM......why that sounds so sweet I could barf........

I used to have USAA, but when I left the service they dropped me when the next premium was due - reasoning was there insurance was only for active duty military, or officers, or something? Then I switched to Geico and was happy for a couple years until they tried to raise my rates astronomically one year - no accidents, no tickets, no added vehicles, no claims, etc. Reasoning was that they were showing a loss in my state overall and passing it on to everyone else to recoup losses. I passed on renewing with them. I have Progressive now on the bike, have had for over 3 years now and the premium is quite reasonable compared to every other quote I have received. I haven't had a claim in so long with any insurance company, but I am constantly hearing that it is quite an ordeal these days - whoever you have. I was surprised though that Progressive does not offer any sort of discount for Harley's new theft deterrent system. It's an extra $350 option or whatever, but you can't receive a discount on insurance for having it? My bike happened to come with it already installed, or I wouldn't have messed with it.

Might be a state to state thing. I was offered a discount from Progessive here in California.
