Bikes bust credit crunch

Biking is one of the best ways to keep your costs down during the recession with many car drivers who are opting for two wheels instead of four as bikes are much cheaper to run.


Thanks to this change in heart, car crashes in the UK have decreased by a superb eight per cent during 2009. With fuel prices on the up and more and more people finding themselves unemployed something has to give and it looks like running a car is taking the rap.

Another side effect of the recession is an increase in fraudulent insurance claims as people try to make a quick and easy buck. If you do decide to get a motorcycle on the road then you will need bike insurance.

False claims, if you are caught, will give you a criminal record and you will face higher insurance premiums as a result. One of the problems with motorcycle ownership is the risk of theft and that is one big incentive to make sure your credit busting bike is insured. Even if you have a lower value bike it can still go missing as thieves tap into the cheaper bike market too.
