I happened to be with my friend as he "attempted" to insure his Ducati this weekend. It's was almost funny. Tooloud just about lost it at the insurance place.....She tells him it gonna be about $2500.00 even with his full discount, and he starts going off......"Jeezus Christ!!!!!!! that's flipping criminal!" she's making hand motions and looking around while trying to quiet him down...he's not known as Tooloud for no reason. I was trying to break it to him gently before hand, but he had it in his mind it wasn't going to be that much.....he left without insuring it and muttering about criminals, and going with a private insurance company. It was a good weekend for riding though.........glad I got some riding in before the rain started.
