Minor blemishes or paint chips caused by gravel, stones and insects are considered normal wear and tear however damage or scratches caused by an accident, dropping a motorcycle or riding it through bushes or off roadways is not considered normal wear and tear. The participant may choose to limit their exposure to the initial US $3000 through the purchase of our Excess Reduction Policy (ERP).

The participant may exercise this option at the time of booking. Once the tour commences the participant will be unable to exercise this ERP option.
