    You need to check with your particular insurance. It might cover it, it might not. Usually bikes are only insured up to a certain amount, which is usually less than the price of a good bike!

    You have to call them and get the bikes bumped up on the policy. Usually doesn't cost much extra. I had to do that with my Hi-Fi system years ago.

    I insured my bike with my insurance company, it has it's own policy. Covers up to $2,000 and it's only $20 a year for the policy.
