Georgia has plenty of roads to entertain riders who love twists and turns and great views on their travels. The state is also home to an abundance of national forests and parks—and the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains.
These rides are authentic treats for adventurers. For vast stretches in Georgia, you can ride without seeing people or going through towns. Be prepared with a full tank of gas and some food in your saddlebags.
Preparation is a part of every journey, which is why you need a motorcycle insurance policy when you hit the road in The Peach State.
You need the following to legally ride in Georgia:
Class M license: This is required for all riders 17 and older—if you’re 16, you can apply for a motorcycle permit license (with restrictions).
Helmet: Both riders and passengers must wear helmets.
Windshield: A windshield is required, unless you’re wearing eye protection.
Headlights and taillights: These lights must be illuminated at all times.
Side mirror: You need to have at least one mirror present.
Turn signals: Turn signals are required for all bikes manufactured after 1971.
Proper handlebars: Your handlebars must not exceed 15 inches above your seat.
Muffler: A muffler is required, but there are no sound restrictions.
Motorcycle insurance is required in Georgia, and proof of insurance must be shown prior to registering your motorcycle.
Whether you’re riding along the coast or in downtown Atlanta, you’ll need the following minimum motorcycle insurance coverages to legally ride:
$25,000 for bodily injury liability or death to one person
$50,000 for bodily injury liability or death to two or more people
$25,000 for property damage liability per accident
When the losses are higher than these limits, you may be responsible for paying the difference. Choosing higher motorcycle insurance limits can help protect you and your assets in these situations.
There are a range of motorcycle coverage options in Georgia outside of just the minimum liability insurance coverages. Check out these other options to help protect you and your bike:
Comprehensive motorcycle insurance coverage can help pay for repairs to your bike after damage caused by theft, vandalism, or weather events like hail.
UM coverage can help you pay for certain expenses if an uninsured driver hits you or your vehicle.
We offer a wide selection of money-saving motorcycle insurance discounts to our riders. Our discounts are designed to make quality motorcycle insurance even more affordable, while recognizing each rider is different.
Here are some of the motorcycle insurance discounts available to our Georgia riders:
If you own a home, condo, townhouse, mobile home, or modular home, you could qualify for this discount. Just note, you must live in the home and be the declared operator on the policy. Proof of homeownership is required to keep the discount.
If you're a member of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G), then this discount is for you. Why not get rewarded for something you’re already a part of, right?
