    A fair quote for motor-bike insurance?

    Motorbike insurance I agree with Garry ... definately try Swan Insurance. Motorbike specialists, and I found them to be much cheaper than the mainstream insurers (NRMA, AAMI, GIO etc). Either contact them directly or go through a motorcycle dealer for a brochure.
