A further reason why motorbike insurance is expensive is that motorbikes are at a higher risk of vandalism and are often easier to steal. If you let your insurance company know where you are planning to keep your motorbike you will probably be able to lower your insurance premiums. A garage or a storage unit will sometimes provide nice discounts from your insurance company. Another way to save money on motorbike insurance is to install security devices for when the bike is parked in public places.

The Weather

Riding your motorbike during the spring and summer months can be fantastic while riding in winter can sometimes be impossible! Let your motorbike insurance company know when you plan on riding your motorbike. This can also save you a nice sum of money.
