Planning on going on one of these routes? Make sure you’re covered! Here are some of your coverage options:

  • Additional liability coverage - covers you in the event that you are at fault in an accident, i.e., it helps pay for any damage you cause to persons or property in an accident.  Most states require vehicle owners to carry some small amount of liability insurance which in so many unfortunate instances is just not enough. 
  • Collision - pays to fix or replace your motorcycle in the event of an accident, regardless of who is at fault.  If the accident is deemed your fault and you don’t have collision coverage, you are out of pocket for the cost of repair or replacement.
  • Comprehensive - pays for damage to your bike that is not the result of an accident.  That includes theft, vandalism, or natural disasters. 
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Coverage - it covers you in cases where the other driver can’t pay for your injuries.  
  • Roadside Assistance - helps pay for the support you need if you’re stranded and your motorcycle can’t make it to the shop.
  • Bike accessories -  covers any customized parts you’ve added to your vehicle. Normal insurance policies don’t cover any additions you make to your bike.
  • Total loss insurance - helps replace your totaled motorcycle with a new or similar motorcycle
  • Trip interruption coverage - helps pay for meals, lodging, and transportation if you are stranded due to a mechanical or electrical breakdown.
  • Medical Payments - pays for you and your passenger’s medical expenses, no matter who caused the accident
  • Personal Injury Protection -  like MedPay, covers you and your passenger’s injuries no matter who caused the accident, and also covers lost wages and replacement services for tasks you can’t do.

We're happy to help you determine your needs and shop for the coverage that fits you best.
