When you’re riding a motorcycle, it’s always important to use a great amount of caution. Alberta’s population keeps rising, which means that our highways and byways keep getting more and more crowded. This province offers many fantastic touring opportunities, but the roads aren’t as “open” as they used to be. Although you can drive a safe as possible, there’s still no accounting for what others drivers might do.
Cars have large blind spots, and it’s simple for a motorbike to get lost in one. And motorcycles can easily lose traction due to debris and gravel on the road. Plus, because motorcycle’s bodies are lightweight and some of the engine is exposed, what was a rather small accident can turn into big damage and a lot of money for repairs. No matter what type of motorcycle you own, you can’t afford go without exceptional Alberta Motorcycle Insurance. Bow Valley Insurance’s experienced brokers are experts in insuring all types of motorbikes – and can customize as much or as little as you want – just like your bike!
Most of the time, and especially in Alberta, those that ride motorcycles are also owners of regular automobiles. Which means that most of the time you can save on your motorcycle insurance by bundling it in with your car insurance. And if you remain claims- and ticket-free for a certain period of time, you can qualify for further discounts. The safer you are, the more it pays off in the long run!
In order to be eligible for insurance, bikes with custom parts and additions should have been built by a professional mechanic or certified builder, have an established paper trail (usually in the form of registration) and owners must be able to provide an inspection certificate. Mechanics and garages that provide inspections and/or safety certificates will usually provide that information right away in their advertisements.
Most motorcycle owners put a lot of time and effort into keeping their bikes in pristine condition and ready to take on the asphalt at a moment’s notice. For those who enjoy this uncompromising and thrilling mode of travel and as the owner of a custom motorbike, you have special insurance needs.
