My yearly for ICBC fully insured is well over 5k+ a year... so I try to only insure during the best months =/ (and I have 40% discount -.-)


Talk about pay to play, that's ridiculous.

Have you had issues with Megson Fitzpatrick for claims?

Yeah, by the summertime I usually insure everything as well and it sucks, this year I am probably getting rid of one of the Diavel's tho since I dont need two and I need to make room as I am out of space for whats coming in the future!




I have not dealt with Megson personally, but I have heard its like beacon as well, declared value and what not.

But I have had multiple friends claim beacon seamlessly so thats why I'd stay with them, this include friends who has crashed on the track and what not.

My girlfriend is also on Beacon and although we have never dealt with them (Knock on wood) but so far I have had nothing but good news from friends.

Aite. Reputation is important.

Just hearing Radioman's Beacon claim headaches and the fact they only let me declare the value my Vino 125 at $1,000 as per Blackbook no matter how adamant I am that people ask for more for it, plus they'll charge me $225 for it anyway vs. $161 at MF for $1,900 declared value, has me looking elsewhere. I'll consider being the Megson Fitzpatrick guinea pig here.

Damn that's one huge heavy-looking muffler. Looks like it's time for an underbelly system! Also if you happened to be the guy that sold the Repsol CBR600 I woulda bought it from you had I known you'd let it go so cheap

Personally not a fan of the look of this bike... as I really dont like the front pegs versus the version I have which are standard.

But I'd love to go to one of these Ducati parties where they would wine and dine me....

Mercedes Benz flew me out to Vegas twice to do some AMG events where they wined and dined me..... but now please Ducati invite meeeeee

Waiting for the muffler, but with this setup it's already insanely loud
