There are no border insurance agencies for the US, while there are plenty the other way around--going into Mexico from the US.

I think I have read of people using GEICO insurance as foreigners, so start there--I think the site is GEICO | GEICO Car Insurance. Get an auto insurance quote and save today. Free online motorcycle quotes as well. --I know they have motorcycle insurance. My company is Allstate, so I know they have motorcycle insurance, too. Allstate - Auto Insurance Quotes Online - Official Site for Car Insurance, Home Insurance, Financial Products & More

I am not sure as to the requirements for obtaining insurance here as a traveler, but since the US is such a litigious country, it is slightly more difficult to issue policies; hence there are no convenient little shops that issue US insurance policies to travelers quickly, on the spot.

I use this insurance Overseas Visitors

My friends have had success with Motorcycle Insurance: Motorcycle Insurance Quotes - Progressive You can pick what you need because you may already have health care coverage.

You can purchase the policy online and they will send proof of purchase to you by email which you can print out to carry with you.

Hope this helps and welcome to the USA.
