Tips on Buying Motorcycle Insurance
Make sure you know which company is underwriting the insurance; it’s not always easy to tell; most often a motorcycle insurance policy is purchased from a broker, and if there are problems with the underwriter, you can end up with no policy and no refund!
Compare prices and policy details. Everything isn’t necessarily equal! Check your state or local laws first. You may want or need coverage for yourself, for passengers, for custom equipment, comprehensive and collision, uninsured motorists, medical payments and more.

A broker is defined as an independent agent who represents the buyer, rather than the insurance company, and tries to find the buyer the best policy . An insurance underwriter is the organization that actually sells insurance and takes the risk.
Note that some of the companies listed on this page are brokers; that is, they may shop your details around to several insurance underwriters to get quotes, but they normally take a percentage of the transaction. This isn’t necessarily bad if the broker is upfront about the process and makes the process of finding motorcycle insurance more efficient for you.

Motorcycle Insurance and Motorcycle Rallies: From w BW visitor D.N. : When I bought my 2005 Wing, I also got Geico insurance because it was cheap. However, I have since become aware of a serious limitation which is causing me to change companies. I participate in Rallies and do Iron Butt rides. My liability insurance is no good if I go over 500 miles in 24 hours on a rally. I talked to Geico about this, and there is no way to buy a waiver from them for the additional coverage. They claim it does not apply if you are touring, only if you are entered in competition. Moral of the story: always read your policy!
