Georgia is a state in the South and was the last to be established of the original Thirteen Colonies. Agribusiness has long been an important part of the state's economy but it also diversified in the 21st century in response to industrialization. The state has pleasant weather most of the year and is a great place to own a bike. To see which motorcycle riders have the best insurance rates, we gathered motorcycle insurance quotes from five major carriers for a 45-year-old male rider. The policy quoted included bodily injury protection of $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident and $50,000 in property damage coverage. Our study showed the most expensive place for the sample policy was more than 88.5% higher than the cheapest in Georgia.
