EU Insurance and Brexit

Hi all
I'm a British citizen living in the UK and plan to live and bike around Europe for a few years. I've sold my Yamaha TDM 900 and am looking to buy another bike. My question is would it be better to buy a bike in Germany or Poland and insure the bike there and is that feasible? Sorry if it's a bit of derp question, but maybe someone with experience can succinctly put me right on this or at least offer the options.

Being in your shoes I would wait until the end of March and see what actually will happen. To me it is just uncertainty nightmare now to predict whether there would be hard bexit, deal brexit or no brexit at all.

Agreed. It's a total racket in the U.K. A real legalised scam. Lots of city folk making big money out of it. Tory donors probably

Once you pay your premium, never expect to see it again. You need to try and play the game with.

We can provide full service for your inquiry in Croatia, finding a desired motorcycle, buying and registering it on Croatian plates, sorting paperwork, tax, green card insurance coverage.
If you're not resident, or in any other way if you can't provide evidence that you live 6+months per year in that country (work permits, student VISA etc) you wont be able to acquire full comp insurance.

You can check my signature, our threads here and on ADVrider as well under Lobagola or Lobagola MotoTours.

If you plan to get something off road worthy, I'm linesman for Croatian part of the TET: www.transeurotrail.org so getting info for all the Balkans and Turkey is ready and available.

For your inquiry to get the bike in Germany, that wont be possible, and do not know if that's possible in Poland.

cheers
dooby

Totally agree - I might not be able to use my house in France for more than 90 days a year unless I get a resident permit and enroll in the French social system. EHIC cards could well be invalidated on 29th March and I am sure medical insurance wil rocket for UK passport holders. I know from personal experience how expensive hospital care in Europe can be.
