Insurance is one of those things that are a necessary part of life. You may not want to go to work, but you have bills to pay — so you go. You love riding your motorcycle, so you have to pay for the very best insurance money can buy. If you don’t, the decision to try to save a few bucks will come back to haunt you in spades if you ever have any accident.
So, if you are thinking, “Hey I’m a responsible rider. What do I need all this insurance for? Why is it important that I get the most policy and maximum available coverage?” let us tell you why maxing out on motorcycle insurance coverage is the smartest thing you can do.
Consider two things: 1. everyone has a bad day on the road. 2. as our parents used to say right after telling us to be safe: “It’s not you, it’s the other drivers.”

While minimum coverage may be enough to keep you legally riding, it won’t be nearly enough to help you pay your medical expenses or fix your beloved bike, should something go wrong. You have to ask yourself what you would rather do: pay a little more at a time or be sidelined for months while you wait to earn enough money to be able to start riding again. Accidents happen every day, whether it’s the fault of the rider or the motorists with whom they share the road and you need to as prepared as possible.
