Effective 11/01/2019, Rider Insurance is no longer accepting new policies in Maryland. Please click here for assistance in obtaining a motorcycle, ATV or off-road vehicle insurance quote from InsuraMatch, an affiliated national insurance agency that represents other insurance carriers.
If you are a current Maryland policyholder, your policy will be unaffected by this change until it is scheduled to renew, at which time you will receive a replacement policy offer from another carrier or additional information.
If you are a former Maryland policyholder and you wish to cover your vehicle, please contact your agent or click on the above link to obtain a quote.
All policies include uninsured motorist coverage. This coverage allows you to obtain payment for damages to your vehicle or injuries caused by an uninsured motorist who is at fault for an accident. This coverage also allows you to obtain payment from us if the person who caused the accident does not have enough insurance to cover your damages. In return for a lower premium, reduced limits are available upon request.
Each policy protects you if another person, including your passenger, makes a claim that they suffered bodily injury or property damage from an accident that was your fault. You have no obligation to the injured party unless the damages exceed your policy limit.
Medical Payment Coverages apply only to pedestrians when struck by your motorcycle. Medical Payment Coverages pay the cost of treatment up to $5,000 for the pedestrian from hospitals, doctors, and other medical providers. Medical Payment Coverage is not provided for vehicle operator or passenger.
The State of Maryland requires that all motorcycle operators carry minimum liability coverage. The State of Maryland minimum requirements are $30,000 bodily injury, $60,000 each accident, and $15,000 property damage. A standard liability policy covers bodily injury and property damage to the other party in the event of an accident deemed your fault.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage is required.

This coverage will be set at the same limits as your Primary Liability Limits unless you take the proper steps to reduce them. If you wish to reduce this coverage, the first named insured must sign the proper reduction forms.
