We love to ride.
For Jon and I a good date night is us in the front seat, the dogs in the back, hot coffee (from Caribou), an audio book we can listen to, a tank full of gas, and a clean windshield. Although Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” could be our theme song, The Oak Ridge Boys singing “The Boys Are Back” is our favorite start to a road trip. We always talk for part of the trip and sometimes we sit in comfortable silence. Drivers who pass us often smile – not because of us – but because Sophie is perched in the back window and Tucker is watching out the side one behind Jon.
Favorite destinations include, but are not limited to, Red Wing, Lake City, Wabasha, and Lanesboro.
And the windshield matters almost as much as having enough gas in the tank.
We prefer the scenery to smudges and bug gunk. They take away from the panoramic view and enjoyment that’s part of recreational riding. (Jon agrees so this isn’t a marital problem.) A chip or a crack are terribly distracting.
And in Minnesota, if the windshield is damaged to the point that it impairs the driver’s vision, a law enforcement officer can issue a ticket.
Here are a couple of links to help you decide if it’s time to fix yours. . .
All of the companies Jon represents offer what is called Full Glass Breakage Coverage. To find out if you are already covered, call Jon at 507-226-8121 or email him at [email protected].
The cost for this coverage is reasonable.
If you have a chipped or cracked windshield and have coverage, here are the steps you can take to get your claim started:
Call your insurance claims department. If you don’t have the number, call the office and we’ll give it to you.
All of the insurance companies have local glass companies normally they work with. However, if you have one you’d like to work with, you can check and see if your company works with them. Glass companies serving in and around the Rochester area that we recommend are: (these are NOT listed in any specific order nor are we endorsing one ove the other)
If you have any questions, call Jon at 507-226-8121 or email him at [email protected]
We hope you enjoy your next road trip.
