Bring your bike insurance down

As the cost of living has gone up everyone is trying to find savings and lots of people are opting to reduce their insurance cover to help save a few pennies.

If you are a biker keeping your cover is important but there are still ways you can still save money, without reducing your cover.

Keeping your bike garaged over night can save you up to 10 per cent on your policy. If your machine is out of sight it is less likely to be targeted by thieves.

Taking a recognised advanced riding course will not only improve your riding skills but it will also help reduce your insurance premium depending on the insurer. You do need to pay for the course but in the long run it will save you money and is worth doing for your own skills.

Being female can be advantageous when it comes to insurance as like female car drivers, female motorcyclists do get a better deal. There are female friendly policies out there to reflect the care and attention women pay to their road riding and driving.

Keeping your mileage down will also keep you premium down as riders who do less than 3,000 miles in a year can make big savings. If you don't do many miles and just ride during the warm summer months then this could be the best route for you.

Some bikers do like customising their bikes but modifications tend to be frowned on. Keeping your bike original will help you save your pennies when it comes to motorcycle insurance.
