There is a good reason I buy my motorcycle insurance from a company that understands motorcycles, and their riders.
Here is the conversation I had today with a Nationwide Auto-insurer:
Them: "Sir, if we could get two minutes of your time.."
Me, "For what?", I interrupted.
Them, "Sir we would like to show you how we can improve your motorcycle coverage and possibly lower your costs".
My motorcycle insurance is VERY low. I am over 45, my bike is always locked in my garage, and I have no tickets or accidents in over 25 years. I only put a couple thousand glorious miles on it each year. My insurance is so cheap in fact that it isn’t even worth my time discussing it. So I decide to have some fun.
Me: "Well, my current coverage also covers my dog, in case he gets injured. Do you cover injury to pets?"
Them: "Sir, I am pretty sure we do, and long as they are wearing a helmet and seat belts".
Seat belts? On a motorcycle? Seat belts for my dog on my motorcycle?
I was going to continue giving them a hard time, but I found myself laughing so hard I couldn’t do anything except hang-up.
I am still chuckling.
And I am still with Progressive for my motorcycle insurance.
