I'm just arranging insurance for the bike - joy! - and have been asked if it has any security devices.

Could any of the UK owners tell me if their bike has HISS or HISS2 please?

Many thanks.

OK - thanks guys. I guess my cover is valid then - until they find something they can use to squirm out of it that is!

I've never seen an HISS3 option on the insurance websites - but maybe it's too new for that!

Anyway, HISS2 seems to have kept the insurers happy so I've gone with that.

£380
53 years old
Zero no claims bonus
No convictions
No accidents

Got it through the MCN compare web thingy.

A BMW GS1200 was cheaper even though it costs nearly 50% more. Must be those ridiculous Honda spare parts prices.

It's an unknown risk atm so insurers always err on the side of high until they have more info to base quotes on.

Give it a year or so and the quotes should drop to the same as more established models

Im collecting my tricolour 'Sports on Wednesday.

When I rang Carole Nash.. I was prepared for a shock, ready with a cup of camomile tea and a Valium chaser. Neither were needed.

They asked about security... I told them it had the Honda immobiliser. They told me it must be datatagged only later did I find out this was standard. I don't like alarms. The dealer offered me a Datatool, I managed to resist laughing.

No garage. CN treat my back garden, patio as a "Locked Compound".

Insuring the bike meant a multibike policy upgrade, this cost me £162 and has just over 10 months to run. I didn't think that was bad at all... My other bike cost £128 fully comp.

My NCB is effectively eternal - since 1982. £225 excess. I'm 56.

ATAS, Carol Nash
64 when insured in March
15 years NCD
Locked garage
Hiss 2 Datatagged
Fully Comp
Semi rural area
£280

I was paying half that for my R1200RT but was having great difficulty getting anyone to touch the ATAS in March. Recently I have done a Comparison site and it looks like the renewal premium will be half the first one now that the bike is established with the insurers.

I've just had a rather pleasant surprise.
My first full years renewal has come through from Carole Nash, £218 inc EU breakdown cover and legal expenses cover.
I thought that was a reasonable quote but checked Bennetts just to be sure.

2018 AT manual.
My age 61. licence held since Adam was a lad. Full NCD.
SDP excluding commuting as I'm retired.
Bike garaged with Datatool red alarm, Datatag, rural village near Chester.

Bennetts quoted me for their "Ultimate Package" which includes..
Full EU/UK RAC breakdown/recovery cover and home start.
Legal and personal accident cover.
Helmet and leathers cover.
£400 excess with protected NCD.

The price - £163.31. FFS!!! is that cheap or what. I don't think I'll bother looking any further.

I've just renewed my insurance. I live in the South West U. K. a low risk area.
I have full NCD and a garage.
ATAS only I was quoted £119 on a comparison site. Fully comp insurance only.
I Thought that was pretty good but I am lucky enough to have 3 bikes so my renewal was £350 with Bikesure.
Carol Nash quoted well over £700 though it included all the extras I didn't need.

Can I suggest people include the milage they put down when they got their prices please? Only reason I ask is that I'm looking at the moment and it makes quite a big difference! I'm coming back to bikes with a bit of a gap, so back to zero no-claims.. 🙄
