Help - medical insurance needed!!

dear all

I am trying to get some travel insurance that will give me medical and repatriation cover for a trip from the UK to Mongolia. I have tried pretty much everyone I could find and can't get any, usually because: 'the bike is too large'(since when was a 750 'too large'!)
; I'm too young (24); the trip is too long

Does anyone know of a company that offers good cover for people who are 24 and on a 750. I have everything else for the trip planned and don't want to reduce the length, wait until I'm older or go on a different bike!

thanks

Henry

World Nomads, £119 GBP sterling for:
$AUD5000000 Medical
$AUD500000 Repatriation
$AUD2500 belongings

my normal bike insurance (Carol Nash) is only 3rd party, but gives me 3rd party cover worldwide!

This is a lot cheaper than policies for other acitivites eg rock climbing that I have bought in the past, so am pretty pleased. I normally do quite well out of insiurance as I am a bit accident prone, to date I am up about £40,000 having spent about £300 on insurance, what a bargain!

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.
