If you are speaking of physical damage coverage, if you have no loan or an unsecured loan such as a credit card then you are not required to carry this coverage for the bike itself. However if you plan to drive it over the road, every state has requirements for minimum liability coverages that must be carried. So if you cancel the insurance and still drive it not only are you in violation of the law but if you cause an accident you will be completely liable for any damages and injuries and will have no coverage. Typically minimum limit liability policies are inexpensive.

You are responsible for the damage you cause in an accident, regardless if you are insured or not.

If there are injuries to the other party, then the other party's insurance should pay for their injuries, but you are still responsible for the property damage you have caused the other person.
