Rider insures a wide range of motorcycles and ATV/Off-Road vehicles with insurance coverage options to satisfy the needs of our customers in Maryland. All of our policies insure individuals for recreational use only.
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.
Many Rider customers inquire about medical payment coverage for the motorcycle operator. While this option is not currently available, 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.

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.
