    May is Massachusetts Motorcycle Safety Inspection Month

    Do you own a motorcycle?  If you can answer "yes," there are two dates you need to remember:

    • the month of December is when all motorcycle registrations expire
    • the month of May is when all motorcycles need to have their annual safety inspection done

    With the nicer weather FINALLY upon us we will see more and more motorcycles out on the road.  Please look for them and please look out for them!  

    If you are a bike owner, May is typically when New England weather allows you to pull that bike out, get a tune up done, and make sure it is road ready.  Here's a list of some of the items to check:

    • tires
    • lights
    • turn signals
    • mirrors
    • horn
    • brakes
    • oil
    • fuel
    • muffler noise

    Massachusetts is a helmet state.  When on the bike you should be wearing a US DOT standard helmet.  It is very important that this helmet is the correct size for your head.  In the event of an accident, having a properly fitted helmet can save your life.  Straps need to be buckled at all times.

    If your motorcycle does not have a windshield you should be wearing some type of eye protection such as goggles, eye glasses, sunglasses or a face shield.

    ALWAYS wear appropriate clothing.  So many times you see a driver or passenger wearing shorts, tank tops and/or open toe shoes.  None of that will help protect you if you go down.  No one expects this to ever happen, but it's far better to be safe than sorry...road rash can be nasty.

    Renewal Reminders

    Dont forget to renew your automobile insurance policy with auto from Andrew Gordon Inc Norwell MAWho has forgotten to renew a license??  Get the inspection on the car done on time?  Not been aware that a registration was not renewed because of a forgotten parking ticket?

    In these days, with everybody so busy, it is easy to forget something that happens once a year (inspection sticker) or once every five years (license renewal).  The registration plate renewal comes in the form of a bill that needs to be paid, so that is harder to miss.  However, if you have an outstanding parking ticket your registration could be non-renewed and you would not even realize that.

    Well, there is an easy solution to this so that you do not get stuck and possibly surcharged or have your vehicle towed.  One of our insurance carriers (Plymouth Rock Assurance Corp) offers a service to all of our customers, whether you have your insurance with them or not.  They will email you reminders for your license, inspection, and registration renewals.

    All you have to do is go to mylesereminders.prac.com to sign in.  You will get an email reminder telling you what needs to be done – simple!

    If you have any questions at all, of course feel free to give us a call and we can check on the status of any of these items. Learn more about auto insurance here
