    Are there any recommendations for insurance providers who will provide coverage for a bike that is used for street and some track-day outings? Any of them include actual medical coverage if/when something happens?

    Current provider (State Farm) is less than helpful, won't stack any existing coverages, and won't cover a track bike for street use, or the other way around.

    Ended up talking with Progressive and they provided great rates: Liability, property damage, comp/theft, uninsured/underinsured, bodily injury, damage to riding gear, loss of work pay, etc. Two bikes ('96 F3 and '98 F3) for ~$2K/year, and that's with my son on the policy. Nobody else came even remotely close to that.

    My health insurance covered me when I went to the hospital from an off at a trackday.

    It's "closed course training" something something.

    A fair amount of insurers have an exemption for a "timed event" (i.e., a race) so make sure to read your policy well.

    A lot used to cover street bikes at track days. Not anymore. Too many idiots claiming every little scratch. Then again there also was a number of idiots racing their street bike, crashed at the track, then taking the bike out on some country road and tossing it out the back of a truck then claiming it.

    Hagerty Insurance covers track day and racing. Bike has to have a clear title in your name which seems to be issue for a lot of track bikes

    Progressive insurance covered my 600rr years ago for a total loss due to a lowside at a track day..

    Now I'm curious if that would still be the case?

    FOREMOST covers bikes on track. I've been with them for years just for that reason.

    I have $100k/300k limits, $500 deduct, accessory coverage, trip interruption, roadside, etc....

    I pay right at $1000 a yr on these. They classify the Polaris as a 'street legal ATV' and is on my motorcycle policy.

    '18 Aprilia RSV4 RF
    '16 Aprilia Tuono RR
    '13 HD Night Rod Special
    '18 Polaris RZR XP Turbo

    FOREMOST has been around since 1952, owned by Farmers. They'll be getting a call, thanks for the tip!

    FWIW, me having actual road going insurance on my track bike (never cancelled when I converted from street) actually complicated the hell out of matters in dealing with my health insurance. They kept trying to say my auto/moto insurance should cover it, so that was about two months of back and forth before it got settled.
