Hi, the moderator suggested checking the posts in place already but I could not see how to search! Hence apologies if this subject has been covered already.
Two of us are planning a trip in April/May/June 2020 starting in Toronto then down into the USA crossing many states ending up in LA. We are air freighting our own motorbikes into Toronto so will require Motorcycle insurance in addition to the usual Travel Insurance. However, the company who apparently was the one to go to, Fernet, is currently not providing quotes. I have done a fair amount of searching but cannot find anybody so far as to provide Motorcycle Insurance cover for North America for foreign (UK) registered motorbikes.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks in anticipation.

I'd suggest searching and/or asking on advrider.com or horizonsunlimited.com as they both have quite a few members who have done similar journeys.

You might look at AAA. It is an insurance and travel company that covers both the US and Canada. The premium membership covers towing for motorcycles. Some areas in the US required insurance for motorcycles and some do not.

Thank you Andrew and Dymphna for your swift response.
Once I sort out a solution I will post on here to help others.

You might also check with the place you rent the bike from. They may have some insurance options.
