Mountains of sand stretched far off into the horizon. Sliding down his goggles, Bryson drank in every inch of it.
With a single exhale, he replaced the goggles and gunned his high-powered ATV. Jumping to life, it carried him down the backside of the dune.
Desert season is an off-road enthusiast’s favorite time of the year. But the wear your ATV, dirtbike, or side by side undergoes is something worth discussing.
Don’t worry, it won’t dampen your excitement. In fact, what follows should keep your smile wide!
Desert Season and Motorcycle Insurance
Proper maintenance of your atv in the off season (and ongoing) leads to more fulfilling rides. But it’s simply one part of the equation, albeit an important one.
The second, which we’ll talk about more later, is motorcycle insurance. California, especially in the Southern part of the state, is ideal for off-roading.
Here’s 5 spots worth checking out the next time you’re there:
- Ocotillo Wells
- Oceano Dunes (Pismo Beach)
- Johnson Valley
Accepting all types of off-road vehicles, these spots are favored by beginners and experts alike. Drop each location in an online search to learn more about what they have to offer.
Before you hit the trail though, a few tips will help you get the most from your experience. It can be tempting to just “wing it,” but believe us…you’ll be happy you took the time.
- Download your trail maps for offline use
- Study the terrain and plan accordingly
- Track your progress so you can backtrack as needed
- Pack emergency gear
- Follow the weather forecast
In our digitally connected world, a lack of cell service can create feelings of anxiety. Assume most locations will be spotty at best, and have the maps on your phone.
Planning the gear or accessories you’ll need depending on specific obstacles is something experienced riders always do.
Use a riding app that works even offline, and start tracking your path right away. Because you don’t want to get confused on the ride back right?
From headlamps to batteries, having the right gear for unexpected situations allows you to ride with confidence. Go ahead and enjoy the cool breeze as you cruise over amazing terrain!
Next we’ll talk about another emergency item to invest in.
Best Motorcycle Insurance
The right motorcycle insurance makes the topic of wear and tear more of a formality than a necessity.
First off we should address ways your auto policy falls short of protecting you while off-roading with your toys. Knowledge is power, and we want to equip you with it.
Specialty off-road insurance covers:
- Roadside assistance
- Custom accessories protection
- Collision & comprehensive
Your auto policy doesn’t factor these in.
A side by side can run you more than $30,000, and atv’s aren’t low cost either. Custom dirt bikes round out the trifecta. It makes sense to give them a safety cushion in case of issues.
Affordable plans can shore up any gaps and preserve these beautiful machines. At the end of the day, extended life and countless fond memories await the wise. Be that man or woman!
Safeguard Your Accessories
The majority of recreational riders accessorize their off-road vehicles, sometimes spending more than the original purchase price. As an example our side by side policy:
- Includes the first $3,000 of permanently attached equipment
- Can be increased to a maximum of $30,000
We’re focusing on your favorite riding surface (sand), but coverage applies to all surfaces. Today you’re a desert enthusiast, but tomorrow maybe you’re a hunter, and the next you’re possibly a trail rider.
Whatever hat you choose to wear, we’re there to embolden your pursuit of adventure and exhilaration!
You now understand the benefits of a rock-solid motorcycle insurance plan, but where to get one?
