Hey gotta pick out insurance for my bike over the next few days, was wondering..... they ask what primary use is if its pleasure, work or school travel, and a few other options, was wondering what best would be since they cant really say you arnt allowed to park your bike certain places if its pleasure or if its work and school related they take that more seriously for lower rates since your trying to get there and not really messing around. Im just trying to keep my insurance lower but keep decent coverage
Try PROGRESSIVE; I don't think they stipulate. Or maybe it's just because I'm an old fart. LOL

Cheers

Your AutoCAD sketch was a giveaway, too smart to be in civil field and too old of a program to be around my age.
With all due respect, imwright, the sketch was done with Vellum, not AutoCAD. I'm recently retired from an outfit where our "heavy-lifters" were Catia and ProE, but the majority of quick-and-dirty was done on Vellum. I very much prefer it for all but large government-level projects; unlike AutoCAD, it's incredibly powerful and yet amazingly intuitive. Ask Burt Rutan of Scaled Composites.

Hmm... never used vellum or Catia. Now i gotta tinker with more drafting platforms on some downtime. I know at Sensormatic, and Hall Industries they mostly use AutoCAD and ProE (Hall uses it very little) some of my friends with lockheed say they mostly use solidworks and AutoCAD with a little ProE. That is why i learned Solidworks. I try staying as familiar with the platforms as possible so if i come across a decent job i can stand a way better chance at getting hired. thanks for the new info
Catia is VERY high-end; it subscribes for about 30K a station. That's why only the big guys get to use it, such as Boeing, Airbus, GM, the Nat'l Labs, etc. DO check out the Vellum suite; the fire-power is really impressive. It's affordable at the private level, quick to initiate, very intuitive in execution, and runs beautifully on your laptop; all important considerations for consulting work and real-time, in-the field operations. I have several early rev.'s of AutoCAD, which I haven't used for years; not since switching over to Vellum. Try it; you'll like it!

Cheers

There are a few, damn few, advantages to being an "old fart"; low-cost insurance premiums is one of them. LOL.

Called honda financial. they only care that the bike is insured. Called Allstate and they said they could write a policy from my parents auto policy (for multi policy discount) with me and my dad on the bike (which would meet honda financial's requirements and its only 599 a year) My mom is setting up the policy tomorrow and I just gotta pay them and it will drop after i turn 25!!!
Ah, the glories (or is it the vagaries) of youth! Hang in there; it gets better. :)

Cheers
