How old are you mate? Just get some quotes tbh pal.
I'll be 47 end of July & would have passed my test about a day/week & will have 1 years No claims from my Chopper.
I just wondered whether I should only be looking at 600's ? I've had a hankering for a Blackbird for ages now & it would fit the bill for what I want it for as in everything & some Serious touring.
I reckon you'll get a fairly decent quote at your age. Shouldn't be any more than £500 a year fully comp.
I suppose that'd be quite a bit compared to what you're used to though. I am completely guessing though.
Like I said, just do a few quotes. Try devitt, they were quite cheap for me.
A monkey is well do-able.
I am feeling that school boy excitement us blokes never grow out of. +
Why fully comp tho, given how high the xs can be on some policies, your better of just tpf&t, to put it into context, the tpf&t is all of £130 ( including legal cover & breakdown recovery ) on my XJ1300 at 47, granted ive got max NCB, but still, is it really worth paying the extra dosh?.
I'll do it within my budget mate so 3rd party would be well acceptable I was just wondering whether I was wasting my time looking at the Blackbirds.
Live the dream and get the bike you want, worry about cost later
My ER6 fully comp for a 44 year old with not having ridden a bike for 20 years cost me £330. If I'd just got an ER5 then it was something like £200.
tuono cost me £150 a year with 6 years ncd .. Not sure if a blackbird is a good step after the cruiser though . lovely bike though
almost 47? your quotes should be pretty damn cheap then!
Also a name change is needed I think....as of july 4T7
Nice one mate, them Stroms are fast hay!!!!!
I think that was the sun reflecting off my right indicator
A Blackbird as a first big bike ( in every sense of the word ) with so little experience & low NCB, might get the insurance companies rubbing there hands with barely contained glee. tis a helluva brave choice.
Very rapid bike, and a touch on the heavy side I believe.
awesome video, can't wait for part 2
Vids excellent mate especially at the end identifying everybody.
Missed out 1 name sadly as I wanted to get it uploaded!
Decided to use a range of music too, to try and meet everyone's tastes.
I remember the guy whose name is missing but I didn't catch his name on the day, It's hard enough to remember everybodys names & then identifying the forum name & bike about pickles my brain.
Your vid put my head back in order.
Fork seals done & replaced with Jap seals & decent oil, Weathers scorching here today as well & easily warm enough to ride in shorts if you're completely mentals.
Looks like you all had an awesome day Very jealous, gutted I could not make it, need to watch all the videos now..
Roll on the next one!!
But you didn't have any Belinda Carlilse
