Every insurer has a different stance to this, therefore it is very important to speak to one of our advisers so that they can advise you on which insurers are the best when it comes to riding a motorbike.

As a general rule of thumb, as long as you abide by the Road Safety Requirements of riding a motorbike, it is fully licensed and insured then the majority of income protection insurers are happy to cover this. But again it is very important to mention this to your adviser to ensure that the particular insurer you are going with is happy to offer cover for this.

If the motorbike is also used for track days or racing then it is also vital that the insurers know about this as certain insurers have different appetites to motorsports. Most mainstream insurers would place an exclusion on the plan for motorsports.

Mentioning this to your Adviser would be the best way to get a clear and accurate answer.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
