Just passed :) insurance tips?

Hi, just passed my bike test, used to ride 125ccs a few years ago and got back into biking in the hope of getting a Honda cbr fs.

Here are my stats.

I'm 26, driven a car for 6 years now with 3 years ncd. I'm a woman biker does that affect anything lol.

Anyway I'm very much after something sport but quotes one day to the next differ, honda cbr f is pretty cheap at £450 tpft 0 excess.

Honda cbr fs is coming up at around 800 :(. I have a set budget put away for the bike and was looking at paying my insurance up front. Was hoping to just buy the one bike as to not run the risk of losing money down the line when i come to sell the bike, and not be able to afford the one i actually wanted :(.

Any tips? i was looking at the sv650s but tbh i know i will get bored of it.

Thank you

Congratulations on passing your test and welcome to the fold. 

If you really want a CBR then go for it, they are great bikes.  Pick the F over the FS.  The FS was a little more 'sporty' but there is little difference in performance plus the F has the added advantage on a centre stand and more comfortable seat.  (Don't under-estimate the convenince of having a centre stand)  I am sure with a little shopping around you'll be able to get a reasonable price on your insurance.

you planning to use it for?

One way to get insurance down is a limited mileage - but if you're commuting daily / all year round you may find yourself running your mileage up pretty quick.

Yes, i like the cbr fs only for the rear not a banana seat fan.

The sv650's sv1000's are up on the list, but I'm more for the naked look with belly pans for them. Don't want the bike to be to light in weight as I'm only small myself and would prefer good stability on motorways.

My budget is £3000.

I won't be using it as much for the winter, it's not a commuter bike, i use the car for work, jap so pound the miles on that lol. I don't think in the 1st year of having the bike i will be exceeding 4000 miles tbh i will in the 2nd year though, but if i get the sv650 i will be able to afford to put extra miles on as it's pretty cheap to insure.

Thanks for replying nice to meet you. :)
