What to Look For in Motorcycle Insurance

bike insuranceWe know how it is. The lure of the open road, the feel of the wind on your face. Sometimes, the excitement that motorcycle enthusiasts feel can cause them to overlook the importance of a comprehensive motorcycle insurance policy. But before you head out on the road, understanding proper coverage for your motorcycle is as important as it is when looking at auto insurance.

Let’s take a look at the components of basic bike insurance.

It is mandated by Illinois law that motorcycle owners have liability coverage in their motorcycle insurance. The least amount of liability coverage that fulfills state law compliance is:

  • Twenty thousand dollars for Bodily Injury, per person.
  • Fifty-thousand dollars total per accident Bodily Injury
  • Twenty-thousand dollars Property Damage.

A typical policy in Uninsured Motorist Coverage will cover:

  • Twenty-five thousand dollars, Bodily Injury, per person
  • Fifty thousand dollars Total Bodily Injury, per accident.

Medical coverage for you as the driver is a standard and well-advised option. Are you financing your bike? Creditors regularly require that the buyer get full coverage.

Winter Options and Motorcycle Insurance

During Chicago area and Illinois winters, many an owner will store their bikes during the coldest months. Options are available that allow you to benefit from that “dormant” stage. Be sure to ask your agent about taking advantage of these options in order to get the maximum amount of savings on your bike insurance.
