What can I do?
Vehicle insurance (third party insurance) should cover the personal and material damage to others, that you may cause. And travel insurance should usually be for yourself, if you get injured or sick, and possibly your luggage, camera, laptop, etc.
So if you travel with a vehicle, I believe you should have at least these two, and it is my understanding, that they will be two separate policies (Someone please correct if I´m wrong). In the EU, very few insurance companies offer to insure vehicles at all, in case they are taken outside the Green Card zone.
And BTW, it´s also worth checking, that your travel insurance will cover riding motorcycle of the size that you have.
