insurance explantion/rationale

Thanks to the EU for the insurance hassles. An EU bike must be insured in its country of registration by an insurance company that's authorized to write insurance in that country. That's part of the regulations - when you register a bike in the UK (or IE, FR, etc.), you must be insured by a UK (IE, FR, etc) authorized insurer. Sort of like US insurance is good in the USA, but not in Mexico or European countries.The lawyers have us by the you-know-whats.....

BTW, Say Hi to Polly and thanks for the great service.

Thumb renew my Green Card, Doug

Hi Doug,
My Irish plated bike is up for Green Card renewal - THANKS also to the Wheatwhacker.

I'll be returning to Europe from the US to ride for about a month or so. PM on the way with the details: bike reg, current tax info, my D/L info and passport info.

Thanks for the fantastic service & say Hi to Polly.

You guys ROCK!!!

Thumb Green Card for the Varadero

Emailed Doug and Polly direct for the insurance today.

Man, this is the life: good bike purchase via Wheatwhacker in Ireland, good insurance rates from Doug & Polly in Bulgaria, free storage with a friend in Paris, lots of time to ride!

Time to bump this thread again.
Update.
To date, motosapiens have insured all the bikes I have put through motofeirme.
Zero problems and insurance has been prompt and professional.
The insurance does cover country or origin, in this case, Ireland.

If purchasing and insuring a bike has put you off euro travel in the past, it seems like we have finally cracked the hurdles facing riders from abroad.
Even if your bike depreciates a thousand over 3 months, it's still only 330 euro/month, 10 euro/day plus 3 euro/day for insurance.

Are people still shipping bikes??

Hope someone can be of help. Both my bikes are standing in Germany and my wife and I are South Africans and non EU residents as well as our bikes. We are going back next week to go ride France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Germany for 3 months.

Do I need to get Green card insurance and if so where and which is best to try and obtain that?

I mailed motocampbg and will see what comes back.

Yes

If motocampbg doesn't work out for you (it probably will), try

Thanks Courtfisher, Doug and Ivo from Motocamp is busy sorting it out from me.

They are considerably cheaper than the others posted, and feedback is quick..

KTM registered here in New Zealand. Can I use this for insurance when I ride in Europe next year?

(Thank you - I am still early in my planning stages)
