Dewey a tad over 5 years ago may have something to do with it? Plus suspension of license along with it for a month. No speeding tickets or other incidents for at least 8 years.

Maybe I should try another insurance agent. My guy seems pretty good though.

When I got a quote from Progressive on my own the other day it was 9,000/year for RSV4. Geico wouldn’t insure me. So I almost feel like my insurance guy is working some kind of magic.

$65/month for the Tuono! Sounds high but not compared to $170 for the RSV4. My Speed Triple is $70/month.

This is with minimal coverages.

Hmm insurance is $140 with a 1K deductible on the RSV4 Factory, $170 with $500.

I can handle that. I just am afraid the bike will be too uncomfortable. Can I ride someone’s sport bike tomorrow or the next day? (South Bay hopefully)

Well humorless one, there was a situation in England a few years ago where to name a ship they turned it over to the internet instead of making their own decision, much like you're doing with barf. The internet chose "Boaty McBoatface".

Now man up and pick your own bike!

Okay, thatís pretty funny. I can see the humor in the situation because it is a little ridiculous to have a message board pick my bike....was more looking for the opinion of the wise batters.

I donít know all the inside jokes around here, except my dadís an engineer and said triples are bad!

Iím getting the Tuono, final decision. Hopefully pick it up on Friday!

Let me know if you still want to try out a Tuono factory (2017). I am in the Almaden area.

Having owned a TV4R and an RSV4R, I would vote for the RSV all day and twice on Sunday.
