MSM are expensive because they don't take your no claims into consideration and the Ossa is so bloody expensive, I will be taking the policy out on Monday.

So far as insurance goes, I regard it as the price you have to pay to get left alone (to some extent) by traffic police. Cover for theft and suchlike is incidental, and something of a lottery, as to whether you will actually be covered in the event of the worst happening. This is doubly so with trials and enduro bikes because they are so prone to theft and don't fit in very well with the legislation and insurers' rules concerning vehicles used on the road. I will no longer buy a bike or van that I can't afford to write off myself - it's not fair, but it's the way things are. We had an old trail bike stolen off the farm by some scrap collecting smack rats a few weeks back - it wasn't covered by the insurance, and although the police were told who had taken the bike, and where it was, by the time they got around to executing a warrant, it was long gone.
The MSM trials and enduro policy appears to be the best of what's available, and it's great to have an insurance broker who actually understands how the bikes they are selling insurance for will be used. As they are about the only firm around offering this niche service, market forces dictate that the policy price will not be that low.
