Insurance tip

Did you know?

Vintage motorcycle coverage is much cheaper than regular bike coverage because it typically only covers you for parades and other special events. If you ride your vintage bike on the road on a regular basis, you need regular motorcycle coverage.

The Benefits of an Agreed Value Policy

Agreed Value means more than just a joint understanding between you and your insurer on the value of your collector motorcycle. A 19A Valued Endorsement means your vehicle has been legally appraised and certified of its value by an expert, and your insurer will pay you the total amount your bike is worth in the event it is totaled. Our brokers will make sure that hidden maximums and fine print don’t get in the way of full coverage of your classic motorcycle.

Requirements for Classic Motorcycle Insurance Coverage

  • Appraisals: To qualify for agreed value coverage and discounts, you’ll need an appraisal that was carried out by a licensed, certified appraiser in the last two years.
  • Age of motorcycle: Classic motorcycle insurance is available for motorcycles at least 25 years old
  • Age of rider: You must be at least 30 years old and motorcycle licensed at least 6 years or more to qualify
  • Usage: Most classic motorcycle coverage only includes approved rallies, historic runs, public parades and other sanctioned group events.
  • Regular use motorcycle: You don’t need to insure another regular use motorcycle to get the vintage bike discounts.
