Insurance?

8 posts in this topic

I am curious do all of you guys have insurance on your 4 wheelers, if so liability for full coverage?

yes- it's dirt cheap. When I bought mine new I had full coverage with replacement value for the first two years...liability after that. Consider these things: Any risk of it being stolen (unattended at cabin), do you let other people ride it, is it newer?

All no that's why I am not sure if I want to get it or not, will be stored in my garage at my place, doesn't get used much, will only be used by me and its 12 years old.

I have a 13 yo atv, and I have full coverage on it.I think about $130  a year, and I am thinking of just going liability. I leave at cabin and it really gets used only for utility, not for trail riding. I have only liability on sleds, so thinking I should do it for atv. Though one theft is about the same cost as 20 years of premiums, so I am thinking that too...

Good thing is either way, it won't cost you or save you much, in the grand scheme. 

edit oh yeah, it is on my list of things for umbrella coverage as well.

I have a snowmobile like that and it doesn't have insurance either...I do let family and some friends use it but it's only on the lake for ice fishing. I get nervous sometimes in regards to personal injury but I could care less about theft and if it gets damaged.

I have full coverage on my trail riding wheeler, but only liability on my older work wheeler, just in case others ride it. both are cheap, liability was very cheap.

Liability insurance is way to cheap not to have on an older snowmobile or 4 wheeler. I also have an umbrella policy on all of my stuff. My insurance guy explained an umbrella policy to me like this. If something were to happen the insurance company lawyers will fight for you or really their money till they reach the Max of your policy then there done. With people and lawyers always looking to sue someone for a couple hundred bucks a year I increased my coverage from 300,000 to a million on my stuff.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
