thinking of buying a bike....insurance help

i'm thinking of buying an E30 or a motorcycle.

the only reason why i'd go with the E30 or anything with four wheels for that matter would be if the insurance rates on a motorcycle are so astronomical that i have no choice. I was thinking of a buell Firebolt sport bike or possibly a cheap (9k) ducati sportbike....

anyone know how much motorcycle insurance would cost?
i'm 18, no accidents, no tickets reported to insurance, no accidents, defensive driving school, good student discount

You have three choices, stand behind our troops, grab a gun and toe the line with our troops, or stand in front of them, they can use the extra armor.

unless ur super pro on a bike i highly dont recomend it. Last night i saw the after math of a motorbike that had been hit from behind, the bike was nearly ripped in half. Ive also seen some dude change lanes and almost smoke a guy on his bike as he passed.Go with the E30 dude, cheaper and safer

Only because it's Japanese doesn't mean it's 'rice'. You people piss me off with your comments.

sorry but I don't think you can go for that long w/o eventually crashing. I have seen guys with experience crash and it never ends up pretty. They are fun, but just not worth it for an everyday kinda ride.

I plan on buying a bike later this year/early next year. There's no way in hell I'd use it as something daily. People in GA don't really know how to drive at all. But on the weekends when all the bikers come out they seem to pay attention, just never taking anywhere near 285/downtown atlanta.

Look twice, motorcycles are everywhere.

Are you trying to say you like driving the fluid our livers produce, or are you trying to say bikes are driven and not ridden ?

Bikes are fun to drive, and have a huge visibility advantage

i dont think, with bikes, the term ricer can be used.. really, its a bike, you cant put altezzas and a fart can, and they are wicked fast, i like the honda CBRs, the suzuki hyabuse, and the yamaha r1/r6, and no those arent ricer, and ducatis are nice too, just expensive

you want to spend 9 grand for a bike and claim you dont have enough money for a BMW?
