Yep Proggressive.
I had the misfortune to have to make a claim whilst travelling in the US and they were very good to deal with.

Was your vehicle registered in your home country or did you rent one in the States?

I am in Korea and need a motorcycle insurance for USA and Canada
The motorcycle is registered in Iceland and I have a Icelandic driver's
license.
Proggressive will not make an insurance as I do not have an USA driver's license, what is the best way to get an insurance for USA and Canada ?

It takes about 5-6 days to for the insurers to issue a certificate.

ONLINE from progressive you must have USA drivers license same as others ONLINE insurance companies and if you talk to a agent it is the same answer, USA drivers license is a must. To get a USA drivers license you must live in USA and you can´t do that on tourist visa.
