So you have caught the bug and have decided to buy your very own motorcycle and learn how to ride. While motorcycle riding can be a fun recreational activity, you always want to be sure you remain safe at all times. You also want to be sure your investment is protected in the unlikely event that you have an accident. This means shopping around and purchasing motorcycle insurance to protect your new ride.

  1. Size matters

It’s true. I’m sorry to be the one to break this to you, but the bigger the bike, the more you will pay. Insurance is, at the end of the day, a game of numbers and the more cc’s your bike has (meaning the larger the engine), the more you will pay for insurance.

  1. Increase your deductible

One of the easiest ways you can save money on your motorcycle insurance premiums is with the deductible. While it is true that if you raise the deductible you will be out more money in the event that something does happen, you can potentially save that much money and then some on your motorcycle insurance by raising it.

  1. Get trained and certified

If you are looking to save a little money on your motorcycle insurance, you should consider taking a motorcycle safety class. These classes are relatively inexpensive and only take a weekend or two of your time. During the course, you will learn everything you will need to know about riding safety and will spend a great deal of time on a bike learning how to properly operate and control it in a wide variety of scenarios.
