    International (European) MC insurance

    Does anyone have a good recomendation for liability/collision/comprehensive Motorcycle insurance for travel by bike in Europe?

    I don't mean "travel insurance" lost baggage, cancelled flights, med assist. I have that through AAA, I mean actual liability insurance. I'm having a devil of a time finding any online.

    TIA

    Finding liability insurance by itself isn't an issue but finding full coverage insurance as a tourist, is almost impossible from everything that I've read.

    At this point I'd accept liability only, the only problem is that everything I've found only covers US registered bikes traveling in Europe. I'm after a liability policy for me on a EU registered bike.

    OK, that scenario changes things.

    If the bike is EU registered (I'm assuming under your name), what address did you register it under? Use that address for insurance purposes as well, or do they also want a driver's licence from the country it is registered in?

    Talk to Stefan Knopf of Knopf Motorradreisen. See what he recommends doing.

    Pick up BIKE or TWO magazine, UK publications. They are chock full of motorcycle insurance ads with links, and they speak/write English quite well.

    I looked throuh Bike. All the companies that have websites insure UK residents for EU travel only. At least the 10 or so I checked.

    You will have to do more than look at websites. Start dialing.
