Question old age & bike insurance

I just realized I might have something to look forward to this coming year, once we get past the Mayan apocalypse.
No, I'm not talking about the implementation of Obamacare.

Did anyone get a break on their insurance premiums for their motorcycle and/or their cages when they turned 50 years of age, and if so, which underwriter provided it?

This is not a tangent-free zone, so feel free to high-jack this thread as you see fit, but I'm closer to 50 than 60, so naturally, as a citizen of today's American society, I'm looking for instant/immediate gratification. Besides, I might screw up and not make it to 60

Re: old age & bike insurance

In some states with some company's your insurance goes up at age 50 unless you take the mature drives safety course. Guess they have to teach us to drive again with bad eyes and slower reflexes.

But AARP eligibility kicks in...
At least that's what I've heard.

[But, I am looking forward to those motel discounts in 3 years.]

Hmmm . . . a non-profit with 1,800 employees and $1.34 Billion in revenue.

Must be a lot of paying members at $16 per annum.

AARP’s revenue in 2009 was $1.4 billion, with over $700 million of that revenue coming from the royalties they receive from the licensing of insurance products.

That's what got me thinking because I seen it on of those banner ads online. We use to be somewhat of an AARP supporter until we found out they have a liberal agenda.

Re: the hotel discounts, we were just mentioning the senior discount at the Choice hotel chain on our trip in September, and they gave it to us without proof. We must have stayed in five or six during the trip and got it each time.

Re: old age & bike insurance

Insurance....some times I think this a very dirty word!
That said we can not avoid it.
I turned 53 this year and just went shopping for All coverage.
I got a quot from Allstate for the house, van, pick up and bike.
Same coverag as the other two pollices..... Big savings!
Here in Canada I have a limited line of coverage I can buy and afford...
My RT alone was $1150.00 per year.
Now all in 248.00/ per month.
To me and where I live this is a hundred dollars a month less!
This is over 1200 a year savings.....

Marry Christmas to me!
