Motorcycle Insurance is oftentimes confusing and daunting because there is a sense that the insurance company will find some way to avoid paying in the event you are in a motorcycle accident so you may as well buy the cheapest insurance. Nothing could be farther from the truth and nothing could be farther from the truth about what type of insurance you should buy.
The first question you ask an insurance agent is how much coverage do you think I need. From this question the agent should be able to ask you questions that will allow him to suggest to you a dollar amount of coverage that will protect you and your family from the devastating effects of a motorcycle crash. You need to but protection from causing harm to others so they will not be forced to sue you personally and take away all you have worked for. However, you also need to insure yourself against others not carrying enough insurance when they cause the damage - this is called uninsured and underinsured coverage discussed elsewhere in this blog.
