Peter an' myelf were covered thru our CN Ins last year on our trip.

We didn't need to use it, but it gave me a little satisfaction to know that it may just get us home. So glad we didn't need to try it out tho

Default Sounds like shyte to me

What bloody use is it if it stops you doing what you want to do ie HOLIDAY.

May as well learn transit hire in every language and how to fix bike yourself by side of road.Every major city has breakers.Balls relying on some grey faced suite who is "trying to keep you happy".

If your travelling in a group I'd take a toolkit between you,or if you don't know how stand up they are take it yourself.

Cynical old bastid ain't I

I`ve just renewed my insurance with CN for my 2006 sprint (£264 F/C with 12 yr ncd)
I`ve never had a need for the european breakdown cover, in fact I never took any notice that it actually came with the policy in the past, but this year I`m planning a trip at the end of June, but I was wanting to know how comprehensive is the comprehensive european breakdown cover and should I consider any other backup policy.
I`m aware there are breakers etc in europe but with me having a reasonably new bike, I don`t want to be doing major roadside repairs myself

Colin from Wales,who you have met @ faro used it when he had a front blowout and totaled the bike a couple o years ago.
He was super impressed with the way everything was dealt with ,from the hire vehicle through to getting the bike returned to his locar dealer.

I had cause to use the European cover four years ago in France when the battery on my old FJ ran dry and went bang (literally). The recovery driver was all ready to take me back to the ferry port but it was only the third day of our holidays so I carried on bump starting the bike. We later bought a battery for it and it was fine after that.

Trikerdrew, whilst it is all well and good having a tool kit and the wherewithall to use it, what if you stoved your bike up or it was nicked? And seeing as how the cover is FREE ( a Yorkshire mans favourite price ), it would be daft to look else where or snub it!

Default fair dinkum....

S'opose if you total bike it could be useful for medical side of things.

Bit cavalier in my attitude you would seem to think.Who can you really trust when push comes to shove?

I admit freely that I think all insurers are parasitic scum.If you find that untrue I am very relieved ,surprised and happy for you.

I thought it was excellent. When the Future Bike blew its motor 500 miles north of Stockholm in 2005, they arranged for someone to pick it up anf take it the 850 miles back to Gothenburg so that i could catch the ferry home.

Appears to be Scottish.

Now this isn't a criticism, just an observation, but I've noticed that a couple of people on here tend to write fonetic Scottish - any particular reason guys?
