Hey I'm from Ottawa Ontario and I'm going to move to Victoria British Columbia in June. I have a few questions regarding motorcycling in BC.
How does the Insurance work in British Columbia? In Ontario we have to pay for a full year worths of insurance (No 8 month, 6 month terms). In BC can you pay for different terms or is it like Ontario?
How expensive is insurance in Victoria BC anyways? For comparison, a 19 year old (G2,M2) insuring a 1998 Kawasaki EX500R minimum liability, basic, basic in Ontario is $1900 a year.
I have to make 4 payments (1 a month) for my insurance. In BC do I have the option to pay in 12 equal payments?
Is motorcycle theft an issue in Victoria BC?
Where does the riders from Victoria usually hangout? Tim hortens?
How is the riding season in Victoria BC? Does Victoria get alot of rain? Can you ride your bike year round (realisticly)? It will be my main transportation vehicle.
And... finally, does anyone know any cheap transportation companies that will ship my motorcycle from Ottawa to Victoria? If anyone does, what is the rough estimate on the cost to do so?
Thanks for your co-operation, I'm excited to ride the BC roads!
