Thou shan't do much better than that in Ontario... The province prodly owned by the insurance industry.
Just went through a saga myself.
Sold my 03 LT. It was insured by my regular company along with house, (too many) cars, etc. Economical Group, but I won't mention their name...
Bought an 08 Venture, and the fun began. They wouldn't insure it! Whatever yardstick they use (brand new value?) exceeded their limit. Finally, because of our long relationship, they 'conceded'. Wanted 1200 without comprehensive; just basic collision.
So, I went surfing. Stumbled across TD-Canada Trust insurance, who, it turns out, use Primmum. What a great experience! Wow!
850 - all inclusive! All perils, comp, whatever, with a 1000 deductible.
When I called in November, they insured the bike - for 50 bucks till end of February, because renewals happen then. *Emailed* me the certificate on the spot.
It was quick, smooth, and comparatively reasonable.
