We’ve talked about how easy it is for an ATV or side-x-side to be stolen if the proper precautions are not taken, which makes it easy to see how important insurance could be.
Yes, its a wise decision to insure your ride against theft, but its equally important to have some personal assurance for incidences on the trail.
After extensive research on SPOT, I finally invested in one of these personal protection device and its wide variety of emergency options.
I felt like the price of the initial product was fair and then began to worry about the extra money it cost to actually have the device operable.
It wasn’t until I went to a foreign country to cover a race that I really thought about just how much protection this little gem offered.
If I were to get injured and there was no one to help, I could press a small button and in a matter of time there would be local officials on site to help me.
The fact that my total initial investment was less than $250 is a small price to pay for security during a life or death situation.
In addition to that I would be flown out of a foreign country and transported to my home state hospital for an additional $12 per year.
These costs are legitimate concerns that many think are too expensive to invest in until they’re are in a position where they may need this type of assurance.
Sometimes a small ding to your finances is worth it if it keeps you and your family close to help the event of an emergency.
