Motorcycle Racing Insurance - What Do You Need to Know?

If you are a motorcyclist, you probably already know about the hundred and one things that are necessary to the responsible ownership of a motorcycle. If you end up racing your motorcycle, however, things might not be as clear. When trying to get a motorcycle that is meant for racing insured, there are several things that you need to keep in mind, and but luckily it is all relatively clear cut and straightforward.

If you have observed motorcycle racing, you will see right away that this is a sport that requires a great deal of skill and dexterity, as well as a lot of experience on the motorcycle itself. You will also see that while every precaution should be taken, that there is a great deal of risk involved and the damage can occur both to your body and that of your bike. While this is better off avoided if possible, it is always better to make sure that any spills that you take are covered and that any damage you do can be paid for. You should also keep in mind that while a minimum of insurance is required by law, the minimum goes to anyone else hurt in an accident, not yourself.

If you have aspirations of motorcycle racing, you will want to make sure that your collision insurance is very good. If possible, make sure you get full coverage and if there is a question, you may be better off insuring it than not. Remember that in motorcycle racing you are not doing what is considered normal usage. You are putting a lot of wear and tear onto your machine and if you want this machine to be around for a while, you will want to make sure that you'll be able to pay for any parts that it might need.

Another thing that you will want to keep in mind is that a racing motorcycle will be vulnerable to things that a motorcycle ridden only for pleasure would not be. Policies meant to cover racing and competition motorcycles will not only guard from normal losses, but also from things like loss due to fire or trailer theft. Consider getting all-perils physical damage coverage, coverage that will extend to times when the motorcycle is stored and transported between events. Especially if you participate in team events, remember that your needs will be different from what is required for people who are only using one motorcycle for recreational purposes.

One of the advantages of motorcycle competition machines, though, is that you are able to take advantage of things like discounts and bargains. For a lot of places, if there are multiple machines signed under the same policy, the overall price goes down. Similarly, you can still take advantage of deals that will reward you for things like going to free DMV motorcycle safety classes.

If you race motorcycles or own motorcycles that are meant for racing, you will want to remember that motorcycle racing can be risky. To protect yourself, your investment, and the people you ride with, a decent motorcycle insurance is a must.   Site Map - About Us - Contact Us - Terms of Use - Privacy Policy
