Georgia insurance

Just crossed from Turkey to Georgia. What is the situation regarding motorbike insurance? Nobody asked about it and there was nowhere to buy it at the border. Any advice?. Cheers.

Hi Wuming,
I had a plan to go to Armenia tomorrow, but I could check if this hostel has free room also tomorrow. So could have a pint

Where are you in Tbilis?
I am in Green Stairs hostel.

I crossed Georgia a couple of months back and the answer is simple: There 'aint none mate!

Just entered Russia from Kazakhstan and got insurance for the first time in a long while. It feels good but I'm sure it is not worth the paper it is written on (or the $30-ish I paid!)

I guess the best advice is don't have an accident.
