If you own a motorcycle in Minnesota, you are required to carry a minimum of liability insurance. Liability insurance covers injury and damage to other people and their property should you be at fault for an accident. For Rochester, MN, liability includes:
- $30,000 for bodily injury per person
- $60,000 for bodily injury per accident
- $10,000 for property damage per accident
Carrying this amount of insurance keeps you legal in the state. However, with the risk associated with driving at all, let alone driving a motorcycle, you should consider a higher level of coverage.
Comprehensive motorcycle coverage includes liability coverage, but it also adds on coverage for your own bike. It is designed to cover your bike in the event of an incident that is not a collision, such as vandalism, theft, weather damage, and more. It does not cover regular wear and tear, issues due to a lack of care, or any collision-related costs. It is also not a replacement for liability insurance in any way.
Adding comprehensive onto your motorcycle policy is a way to protect your bike from many things you cannot control, but it may not be enough coverage. There are other things you should consider adding, such as:
Collision Coverage- This is coverage that can help cover medical and damage expenses that are due to a collision with another vehicle, a light pole, an animal, and more.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist- If you happen to be involved in an accident in which the party at fault does not have insurance- or does not have enough insurance- this coverage can help cover what they cannot.
