just wanted to say thanks for the input into the thread. renewal's due in the next month Churchill via compare the market are offering £246 FC for my 986. Happy enough with that. Will see what my current insurer Hastings come back with. May try Aviva as it has good reports on here.
Identical thread on a motorcycle forum I inhabit, generally concurring that there has been an upward shift (is there any other). Mine's not due for renewal until October/November so good to have an up-to-date thread to refer to later in the year
