Any MV riders in the Hunter Region, NSW, OZ?



I'm about to get myself an

I have just had to renew insurance on my 312. Bikeguard (Guardian Insurance) has had their M/C Lloyds underwriter withdraw cover. Consequently, the policies have been transferred to QBE.

I have shopped around & have found QBE is much better than at least 3 other insurers including Shannons.

QBE are quoting $570 - all the others I have tried are around the $1100 mark.

It certainly pays to shop around.

Enjoy your 1000R, but one word of caution; depending on the build year, be aware of the possibility of a radiator fatigue crack problem which is well documented in several theads in this forum.

Keen to do St Albans Rd (Wisemans Ferry), Putty Rd, or Buckets+Thunderbold+Oxley hwy+Wooten Way (700Km) when i get my bike back, if only to test out the new seat.

I use Shannons too. Had a claim last year, great to deal with, all sorted out really quick. Just read the policy schedule for QBE on them replacing parts in an accident. My girlfriends dad is with QBE and it made some intersting reading. Probably no problem but just read it carefully. Like all insurer's I suppose.

You'll have no regrets with the MV.

AHHHHHHHH! You've all got me worried now. Is the MV going to cost me a fortune in break downs and will parts take forever to come into the country? It's got to be more reliable than a Ducati......surely?!

As for the radiator, it's a 2008 model. Is that the model effected? If it does will these problems be covered by the warranty?

G'day Ian....settle down these bikes are fine. I have had 3 now (not an R) and I find them pretty bullet proof (for an Italian sport bike). I left Ducati because I was sick of the maintenance costs, but that was about 8 years ago. I think now Ducati's have really got their act together.

You will be fine, and I get mine serviced by Motorcycle Weaponary on the Northern Beaches, ask for Steve and have a chat he can fill you in (he used to race one ) and is very honest.

Cheers.
