Wyoming is a large state with vast plains and the Rocky Mountains in its western half. Many tourists travel to Wyoming to visit Yellowstone National Park as well as the rest of the state, so it’s easy to see why it’s a popular place to ride a motorcycle and take in the views. To see who in Wyoming had the best motorcycle insurance rates, we gathered quotes from five major insurance carriers for a sample policy (bodily injury protection of $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident and $50,000 in property damage coverage) and rider. After analyzing quotes across 36 places in the state, we found the place with the most expensive rates was 7.1% higher than the cheapest.
