Whenever and wherever riding enthusiasts congregate and discuss the best places to ride, the old standards like the Pacific Coast Highway, Cabot Trail and Deal’s Gap come up often. I recently started hearing about another one lately that had me intrigued - The Lake Superior Circle Tour.

Part of this entire process will also include obtaining motorbike insurance from websites like http://www.carolenash.com/insurance/. Of all the aspects of getting your first bike, the insurance process can end up being quite expensive. Young drivers are considered to be a high risk group.

This means higher insurance premiums for young riders. However, this doesn’t mean all is lost. There are some steps young riders can take to help keep their insurance costs down.
