Motorcycle Damage Insurance
We requires that our guests obtain motorcycle damage insurance prior to starting our tours. The new 2003 and 2004 Honda XR400R motorcycles represent a significant investment by the operator to provide you - our customer - with the finest offroad motorcycling experience possible. This motorcycle damage insurance is only for major damage to our motorcycles and not for the normal wear and tear and scratches associated with offroad riding and resulting from minor crashes.

We offer the following two motorcycle damage insurance options for our guests:

  1. A fully refundable damage deposit of $600 US (if no damage occurs). If the bike is severely damaged, the operator will deduct the amount for repairs from the deposit and return the unused balance of your deposit to you. If damage is in excess of $600 US occurs, you will not be liable for any amount in excess of your deposit.
  2. A non-refundable insurance payment of $100 US. If the bike is severely damaged, you will not be liable for any amount of the damage beyond your non-refundable deposit of $100 US.
