    Default Motorcycle theft 10-9

    Hello All,

    Unfortunately my motorcycle was stolen sometime on 10/9 from 1am to 9am this morning. It is a Honda CBR with Repsol fairings (Orange and Black) and was stolen on West Ave in Miami Beach. If seen please contact me, Miami Beach Police (305) 673-7900, or local police.

    The petty theft here, I swear. Not on the same level at ALL, but I had my barbecue stolen over the weekend.

    And let's not forget the thousands of bikes that go on the beach.

    Read about a guy in Flamingo that had 3 motorcycles stolen from the parking garage.
    Apparently it happens a lot in Miami Beach.

    I tried requesting a quote for a car insurance and the reply was $450 dollars per month, which is totally ridiculous - don't know whether it was related to the location being Miami Beach.

    Yeah, that's too high. We were still in our 20s and i had lots of tickets and mine was in the 200s.

    Geico, Progressive, etc. try them all. You can get online quotes too. Keep the liability to a minimum unless you have lots of assets. $10k/30k or $25k/$50k max (unles you have a lease and they require $100k/$300k). Deductible to $500 is sufficient, the $250 isn't worth the increase and if you do $1000, you'll never report anything. Most car companies offer towing so remove that if you can. (or buy AAA or from your cell phone which then covers any car, even friends).

    $450 a month for what kind of car?
