“In Pennsylvania, the minimum required insurance is $15,000/$30,000 for bodily injury liability, $5,000 for property damage liability, and $5,000 for medical payments coverage.
While these limits are the minimum required to operate your motorcycle on the road, most insurers recommend carrying higher limits of coverage.
Other coverage options to consider are uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, comprehensive coverage, and collision coverage. These coverages will provide extra protection in the event of an accident.
It’s important to look at what you can afford for insurance coverage. Once you figure that out, you can shop around with different insurance carriers. By shopping around, you’ll be able to get the highest-limit coverage available within your budget.
