What type of insurance coverage should I get for a 2014 Honda CBR500R motorcycle?
I just bought a 2014 Honda CBR500R motorcycle, but I'm not sure what insurance policy to get. I'm a new rider, so I'm worried about damage to my bike or medical bills if I cause an accident.

“Since you’re a new rider, you may want to add a bit of extra coverage on top of your state-mandated liability insurance.
Because the Honda CBR500R isn’t all that expensive, comprehensive and collision coverage might be overkill. However, you should add uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to protect yourself, as well as medical payments coverage to cover your medical bills if you’re in an accident.”

Can you increase the amount of your loan after the funds have been disbursed?
"I just got a great price on a vehicle and bought it for less than its Blue Book value. I already got the check and gave it to the seller for the asking price. A few days later, I decided that because my car is worth more and I got it on a discount, I can probably have more money to make some upgrades. Can I ask for an increase of the loan amount after the funds have been disbursed?"
