Insurance with an IDP in Europe.
I've spent quite a bit of time reading the various posts out there on insurance and it seems there are a lot of variables involved. And sadly my case doesn't seem to fit with any of the advice given to other wood-be travellers. So I'm originally from the UK, but have a US passport. I have a US motorbike license, but not a UK motorbike license. I have a Bike in the UK, which my twin owns. It's a 1000cc Varadero which he has taxed and insured for him to drive. I want to borrow his bike for 4 months this summer to tour Europe. He's contacted his insurance agent and they're not prepared to insure someone on an IDP (international drivers permit) and specifically if they are not a UK resident. Most insurance in the states caters for a US bike being taken to the UK. The UK seems not to want to insure non-residents or people without UK Motorbike licenses.
Does anyone have any advice?
