3rd party Insurance for USA

Hi all,
I was wondering whether someone can point me in the right direction with regards to insurance for the USA, I fly to Anchorage on Tuesday so have left it a little late to sort this!
Can I buy it when I get there or will this take a while? Is there any insurance company that you can recommend for me to sort this with before I leave? I will only be in Alaska for 8 days and then re entering the USA for a further 10 days. And third party cover is all I need.
Any help would be most welcome.
Many thanks
Chris

I'm also in the same boat! I fly Sunday! (Don't forget your EPA letter)

I'm trying Berglund Insurance Agency - Motorcycle Insurance and Much More! Motorcycle Insurance Specialists - Fernet Insurance Brokers for motorcycle insurance. and I did try Motorcycle Express - Ship Your Bike

Motorcycle express can't help (bike is too small :' )

Waiting on a decent way to pay the other two, they use the same underwriter but want you to either fax or email your bank details...I think.

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.
