7. Insurance


In the rush and excitement of getting your bike out of winter storage you either forget or disregard the fact that you haven’t renewed your motorcycle insurance coverage for the new riding season. It happens. More often, you’re young and poor and affording motorcycle insurance seems a luxury you can’t afford, so your policy lapses or is intentionally cancelled. I’ve been there but don’t recommend it. Better to reduce spending elsewhere than to let your motorcycle insurance fall off.
