Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Is Less Than One Week Away!

July 31st, 2007 by Brad C

I’m not going this year - sure wish I was.  The rides around the Black Hills are great, and I wonder about the progress made at the Crazy Horse Memorial since last year.  Cruising Main Street, watching a burn-out, attending a wedding in front of the bratwurst stand.  Life in Sturgis is good!

It also made me think about the riders I know who are going and of course my thoughts eventually turned to insurance.  Many people have asked us about finding cheap motorcycle insurance, so I thought I would share that information with you too.

Motorcycle insurance for good riders is highly competitive, so insurance companies are willing to compete for your business.  Start by going online to get motorcycle insurance quotes, and compare those to your current policy.  If you are staying with the same insurance company, see if there is a renewal discount included in your quote.  When switching to a new company, make sure that they know that you have qualified for insurance before, which should help lower your premiums.

Confirm that the insurance company’s copy of your driving record is accurate.  If they get things wrong, like thinking you have received a ticket or been involved in an accident, it could easily affect your rates.  Just like your car insurance history, proving you are a safe rider keeps your premiums low.

How many miles do you ride on an annual basis?  This is critical in calculating your motorcycle insurance costs.  The lower the mileage, the lower your rates, so if you only ride locally on weekends, this could really pay off.

Make sure to check out more ideas for saving money on motorcycle insurance.  If you are going to Sturgis, have a cold one for me at the Full Throttle! (but don’t drink and ride!)  And share your stories and pictures when you get back!
