Motorbike key cover

You're getting ready to set off on a Sunday afternoon ride with a few friends, but you can't find the key to your bike. You ask your partner, rummage through your pockets, check every drawer in the house, but it's nowhere to be seen.

Losing your bike key can be a real nightmare. Not only will you waste your time looking for it, but you could end up having to fork out for a replacement. And if you misplace your key when you're out and about, you could find yourself stranded and unable to ride home.

Many bikers simply don't want to take the risk, which is why they take out key cover on top of their motorbike insurance policy. Key cover protects riders in the event their bike keys are lost or stolen, covering them for the costs for a replacement

Bike key cover isn't normally a standard product on bike insurance policies, so you'll need to purchase it for an additional cost.
