     Legal Tips & Warnings, April 2009:
     In nearly every crash involving an Indiana motorcyclist, the wrongdoer is almost never adequately insured to fairly
     compensate the biker. Armed with this knowledge, it is not HOGwash that bikers must take matters into their own
     hands by having plenty of UM/UIM coverages. Uninsured motorists (UM) coverage protects YOU when the wrongdoer
     is uninsured and Underinsured motorists (UIM) coverage protects YOU when the wrongdoer is insured but doesn't have
     enough coverage. So YOU get to choose how much you are worth are buying high enough of these coverage's in the
     first place. Consider at least $250K per person/$500K per accident as minimum. Also look into Excess UM/UIM of
     $1M or more. Discuss these coverages with your agent for even more coverage at minimal cost. You may also contact
     me for a free "Motorcycle Insurance Coverage Audit."

     These coverage's just doesn't cost that much and by not protecting yourself, you are gambling with you and your
     family's well-being. Formore specific details, see our handout in the lobby, call us at (317) 636-7777 or visit us online
