Medical insurance -US citizen

I’m trying to find travel medical insurance for my upcoming trip to Central America. However, I cannot find insurance that will cover any bikes that are over 125cc. I will be riding in KLR650. If someone can direct to company that will cover me that would be awesome.
Thanks!

I am not sure if it is helpful but some interesting experience here from a US traveller who needed their insurance.

I use HCC Atlas travel medical insurance. Last I checked (about 16 months ago), no problem with big bikes for travel. Good service and reasonable prices.

Have you checked our advertisers, World Nomad and Ripcord? Somewhat different offers and good service records from both - which is why we accept their ads.
For more, see our Medical Insurance Links page.

If you have any other information please add it!

Thanks, and good luck.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
