Rider insures a wide range of motorcycles and ATV/Off-Road vehicles with insurance coverage options to satisfy the needs of our customers in Delaware. All of our insurance policies insure individuals for recreational use only.
All policies, including moped policies, include uninsured/ underinsured motorist coverage. The limits are set at the liability limits that you choose for your policy, unless you choose lower limits. Uninsured Motorist coverage allows you to obtain payment for damages to your vehicle or injuries caused by an uninsured who is at fault for an accident. Underinsured coverage allows you to obtain payment for injuries caused by an underinsured motorist who is at fault. These coverages are optional. You are allowed to reject these coverages if you choose to do so. Your premium will be reduced as a result.
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.
Your policy of insurance provides Personal Injury Protection Coverage according to the laws of Delaware. Personal Injury Protection Coverage applies to the motorcycle operator and passenger, and to pedestrians when struck by your motorcycle. Personal Injury Protection Coverage pays the cost of treatment from hospitals, doctors, and other medical providers up to a maximum of $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident, subject to a deductible if you chose one. For a lower premium you can also choose to restrict your Personal Injury Protection coverage to those accidents that happen on the road and involve contact with another vehicle.
If you are interested in supplementing your PIP benefits, Rider is pleased to refer our customers to AFLAC® to consider AFLAC’s Accident Indemnity Plan. Although it is not health insurance, it is designed to put money back into your household for you to use however you see fit. It covers a wide variety of accidents, from as small as cutting your finger and needing stitches, to as big as a motorcycle/car accident.

Your policy includes no-fault protection of property that is damaged in an accident involving your motorcycle as long as the damaged property is not a motor vehicle, aircraft or watercraft, or items in or on them. This coverage is at no additional cost. Coverage limits are $10,000 per accident.
The State of Delaware requires that all motorcycle operators carry minimum liability coverage. The State of Delaware minimum requirements are $15,000 bodily injury, $30,000 each accident, and $10,000 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.
