Buying a bike, help with insurance

I am buying a bike in Blythe, CA. It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere and none of the major insurers have offices within an hour or more of there. I am riding it back to SD to save on towing costs, are there any insurance companies that will let me get collision on a bike without having to take it by one of their offices first?

Thats weird. In Ga you can just go online buy whatever insurance you want and print out a temp insurance card. That's how I've always done it

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Body:
Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

They don't try to get you to bring the bike by their office to make sure there's no existing damage? What company do you use?

Most don't. I have state farm and they've never inspected any of my vehicles.

Ive used geico and progressive. Neither one ever asked to see it. Actually they've never seen it. I just get an online quote, pay with my card, print out proof and done.

Re: Buying a bike, help with insurance

if the insurance company needs a photo inspection then they'll give you a time frame to get it done. its not like an insurance agent is at every single dealership when you pick up a car and need full coverage for finance.

Re: Buying a bike, help with insurance

I've never been required to have a vehicle inspected by any insurance company in CA.

Re: Buying a bike, help with insurance

Also in Cali here. Signed up online with progressive with no hassles at all, cheapest I could find. As far as I know most companies don't require any kind of inspection except for maybe allstate, but idk.

Re: Buying a bike, help with insurance

Same. Progressive lets you pay in advance for one year of insurance.. you can do the whole thing on line with nothing but the VIN number of the vehicle.
