A lot of companies rule out "overland" trips now, in the past we used WorldWideInsure, but they wanted double the rate for this trip because of the bikes.

We used America Express, very reasonable. IMO

Also try Carole Nash, I think they do it for the US nw as well.

Just bought our insurance for our trip to the States in April/May from UK operaters (they exhibit at the NEC Bike Show) Temporary US Motorcycle Insurance Programme This link will give you quote facilities for insuring the bike and at the bottom of the page is a linl for medical/repatriation insurance.I have spoken to David Grist at HC Travel (a biker himself) and he assures me that this policy will cover unpaved road travel as well. We have purchased 6 months cover for our round world trip (first 2 months in the States) and the cost is £473 for the 6 months). The bike insurance was a bit expensive but we have gone for the full cover option at 660 dollars for 2 months (incl Canada). You can get it much cheaper by going Third party only but as we are in the States I wanted full cover for my medicals etc.
