So.... I lowsided at the track today, then she decided to do some dancing in the grass (cartwheeling) and i'm pretty sure shes totaled. I was wondering if Progressive would cover the bike? I was told by fellow track goers that since the track day was not a race/ competition/ timed event that Progressive would still cover it? Any info or experience with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Call them.

Don't tell them your information, just act as if you're getting quotes and you're curios if the identical policy that you hold will be covered.

I was under the impression that if it is a track day it is covered, race/competition is not.

Good luck.

I have progessive and almost everyone I ride wit does too.
I almost 100% positive if you were just riding on a track
for track days that you are cover.

If you were racing or in a competition track race then you
are not covered.

Like Sour Diesel said call them and ask, but call from a different number.

Unless they changed their policies in the 3 years since I worked for them...... no.

Here is a great idea, log online and read your policy declarations. I am 99% sure it says track events of any kind are NOT covered. There may be a stipulation of timed vs untimed though.

Either way, I wouldn't fild a claim b/c it will hike your insurance for the next 3 years and cost you more in the long run.

My buddy went down at the track and messed his bike up pretty good. He told the insurance company that he was run off the road by a cager and that's how he went down. They paid him for that. I don't know what insurance company he has.

I called Progressive as a new customer and they told me they offer no coverage for any type of wreck at the track. I don't remember her exact words but more or less....no. I'm not too big on the possibility of fraud charges so I might end up just bolting her back together myself, not to mention shes in track plastics. I knew I should have just drifted through the rest of the corner instead of wrecking........lol

cover track day as long as there no timed races...

Ill try to find the threads.

I took this directly from Progressive.com and wanted to post it for any others insured by Progressive who are taking part in track days:

(

Thats called insurance fraud. Completely illegal and can have many negative affects on you life if you get caught. Not to mention you are compromising any bit of integrity you might have.

Wise man especially as i stated above i used to work for PGR and it isnt beyond me to shoot an email to one of my friends still there to say to look out for an 07 600rr from new orleans recently wrecked. oh and include pictures from the wreck thread.

I am sorry but I have no pitty for people who try to defraud companies. All the employees there are paid on a profit sharing basis so by defrauding them you are literally taking money out of their pocket. i am not a **** and wouldn't go out of my way to turn in a fellow RRer (unless i know for a fact you committed insurance fraud), but ya never know who would. use your head. you pay to play.

It takes money out of my pocket as well since I have to pay higher rates than I would have had to.

To expand on that, insurance rates are based on the insurance company's statistics of how likely a given demographic is to wreck and make a claim. Insurance is a business designed to make profit and the idea is that they get enough people to pay them money so that the few that make claims can get paid and the company still makes profit. If more claims are filed and the company has to pay out, then rates go up for everyone. Sooo... By people like your friend lying and making illegitimate claims, rates go up for everyone including me.

But all that aside, yes integrity still exists. My father always taught me that "a man is nothing without his word". I put a high value on integrity. If I am looking to hire someone to work for me or doing performance reports, above all else I want someone with integrity. If you screw up, but you man up and tell me the truth, I will go to bat for you and do everything I can to help you. But if you lie to me, I will do everything within my power to make sure that I never have anything to do with you again. I know this is a long rant but liars and thieves (which I classify basically as the same) are something I just wont tolerate.

Fixed it for you. I guess you didn't notice that it was not me. I was just stating that people do lie and get away with it. I personally would not do it because it is illegal and I try to follow the law.
