Default Geico, my experience.

A few months ago, my son, who was insured with Geico, had a wreck in his vehicle. The adjuster was out the next day and had everything taken care of within 3 days. I thought that was good service from them.

I'd been a little dissatisfied with my bike insurance as they didn't recognize the MSF safety course and didn't provide towing coverage. So I went online and checked out Geico.

On Mar. 5, 2011, I switched to Geico, saving $70 a year with towing coverage and getting a discount for the MSF safety course.

On Mar. 21, 2011, the switch went out on my bike as I was riding to work. I called Geico for the towing service. Within 30 minutes a rollback wrecker was on the scene, loaded my bike, and took me and the bike to my house. (Some road services only take you to a shop, or like HOG, to a HD dealer.)

I asked the tow driver what the bill would have been if I'd had to pay it...
$167.50.

Thanks Geico .... think I'll stay with you for awhile!

I use USAA for home and auto, but unfortunately they don't offer MC insurance. They do however have a business partner (Porgressive) where I would receive a USAA member discount.

For the same coverage, Progressive wanted ~ $1150/yr, compared to $680/yr with Geico. Not hard to figure out who I went with.

I had Progressive, switched to American Modern last year for a better rate, then when I found I had no towing looked into Geico.

I had Geico and found they snuck the rates up on me over three years. Checked Progressives rates and they were $200 cheaper for the same coverage. No brainer I made the switch, but I'll be keeping an eye on their rate increases as well.

For roadside assistance I use AMA. If you sign up for automatic renewals (on your credit card) it's $39 a year for membership dues and roadside assistance on all the bikes and cars in your household. My wife and son have both used it for their cars and were happy with the service

being that i ride with an AMA chartered Club i have to be an AMA member, got to tell ya i didnt really want to join AMA at first but lovin it now. Discounts at hotels and scooter shops and i get certain amount of free towing for the scooter or vehicle every year and my wife gets to use it as well (thankfully we havent had to yet) i use dairyland for my insurance, was with state farm but they up charged me $80 one month and said my rate was in an adjustment mode even though i hadnt gotten a ticket or wreck since i had em....no brainer what i did when they did that...lol
