Texas Insurance Law
The Lone Star State is exceptional in many ways, but motorcycle insurance requirements are pretty standard. If you are going to drive a bike in Texas, here are your minimums:
Note the difference in bodily injury coverage per accident and person. Essentially, the law allows a policy to pay less when only one person is injured, and it sets absolute minimum limits for incidents that lead to multiple accidents. If your coverage meets these three minimums, it is good enough for the state.
Minimum coverage doesn’t include anything to repair your bike if it gets damaged. That’s at the heart of why many people opt for more coverage. For a motorcycle, you want a policy that can cover the value of your bike, but motorcycle coverage can come with a few extra considerations that are unique to riders.
Many bikes have custom parts, and they are rarely covered by standard policies. If you put work into your bike, you’ll want to take extra care when selecting your coverage. By that same token, specialized equipment and accessory coverage are worth investigating. Lastly, some policies can include a little extra to protect a transport trailer for your bike. If you ever plan to tow it, this coverage could be important.
