Now that the kids are starting to get back into the school swing, you may find it easier to set up that motorcycle ride you have been wanting to take with your friends. The fall weather is perfect for a ride out on an NJ country road. Maybe you will toodle out towards Weymouth Furnace in Hamilton Township or near Allaire State Park in Wall Township. Wherever you decide to go, there are a few precautions you will want to take before kickstarting your two wheeled vehicle.
First, you will want to be sure you have the right insurance for your motorcycle. Just having standard coverage may not be enough if something were to go wrong out there on the road. Call us before you set your riding date and we will get you the coverage you need. Make sure your registration is up to date. If you let it lapse at all, be prepared to pay back to the date your registration expired in order to make your registration current.
Next, make sure your bike is in good, safe, working order. Check all the major things like the brakes, fuel lines, oil, and blinkers. If you have never given your bike an oil change, learn how to do it. Learning to do things on your motorcycle yourself is a great way to stay safe.
Also make sure your safety gear will protect you if you suffer a fall. If it has been a while since you have worn it, check for cracks or other weaknesses that could cause problems. Make sure your helmet will protect your head and your eyewear will protect your eyes.
We want you to have a great time out there on your motorcycle. Call us if you have any questions about motorcycle insurance and how it can protect you during your ride around New Jersey this fall.
