    One argument I have had that the Honda X-Adv is a new bike [Feb this year] and that I may not be used to riding it. I pointed out having a licence since 1991 and over 9 years NCB I am pretty used to riding bikes not to mention trading in a BMW R1200GS against it. I have been asked could I commute less FFS and then there is the voluntary and compulsory excess which when you add it up is a bloody fortune. If you don't do voluntary they bend you over the table longer with no lube bastards.
    When my ZZR1400 got written off in 2012 they offered me 2k less than the market value I told them to go find me one for that price which they declined like Noggin I stuck to my guns even threatened to contact the ombudsman and they eventually paid up took months though.

    I had the mileage thing when i wrote off the Multistrada last year and they tried to get me to take 1500 quid less than i wanted. We then had an argument and basically shove the mileage thing as the bike was a tourer.

    I then sent them 3 similar GT ads that were all in the region of price i wanted. they still argued the mileage was high so reduced the payout slightly by a couple of 100 but i got what i thought was an acceptable amount
