Prepare For An Impending Motorcycle Rally

If you own a vintage motorcycle that hasn't been ridden in years and have recently decided to clean and tune up the bike so that you can ride it in a rally next month that is being held in a neighboring town, prepare for the impending extravaganza with the tips below.

Wash And Wax The Bike And Purchase Custom Signage

Take your motorcycle out of storage and park it in the sunlight so that you can see how dirty its exterior is and will be sure to provide the bike with a thorough cleaning. Mix automotive detergent with warm water and use a soft sponge to apply the cleaning mixture to the bike's exterior.

After cleaning the bike, rinse the chrome with plenty of water. Apply a coat of wax to the chrome so that the vintage motorcycle stands out and has a glossy appearance. Purchase a custom plaque or decals that contain the name and year of the bike and secure the plaque to the front of the bike or the decals to portions of the bike's exterior.

Make An Appointment With A Mechanic

Don't take any risks by heading to the rally without having your motorcycle inspected by a mechanic. Chances are that your bike needs to be tuned up if it has been parked for a long amount of time. A tune up that includes an oil change and the installation of spark plugs and brake pads will increase the odds that you will remain safe while at the rally and won't have to worry about breaking down alongside the road or being provided with a ride that leaves a lot to be desired. 

Purchase Insurance Coverage And Carry Important Documents

Contact an insurance agent to inquire about insurance coverage for your motorcycle. If you have an existing policy that provides coverage for your automobile, you can easily add your motorcycle to the policy. If you are wary about riding your bike out of town and are concerned about being involved in an accident, full coverage insurance might be the right choice for you. This type of coverage will pay for repairs that are needed as a result of an accident.

If you feel fairly confident about riding your motorcycle and money is tight, you may want to choose a liability policy. A liability policy will cover damages that occur to another party's vehicle as a result of your negligence. After acquiring insurance, place your insurance card, registration certificate, and operator's license inside of an envelope that is stored underneath the motorcycle's seat. If you are pulled over, you can easily retrieve the documentation that are requested of you.

Getting Better Insurance

After years of struggling with my finances, I started looking at my budget with the help of a professional. He noticed that I was spending a lot on insurance premiums, so he suggested a few things I could do to lower my costs. I couldn't believe how quickly and easily he found a great new company to work with, but before I knew it, my policy rates were lower and my coverage was a lot better. I wanted to start working with other people to teach them more about insurance, so I made this simple little blog. Check out these articles to find out what you need to know.
