ok, so can I "rent" my bike to the guy driving them down and then ride with him when he arrives? Is that what you are suggesting?

Also, how do you go about getting insurance for the "rented" bike?

Much thanks.

I cross rental vehicles into Mexico several times a year; the vehicle must be "rented" ... cannot be "loaned" or just "authorized" for use.

It is not hard to do ... make a "contract" on a nice form specifying the lenght of time of the contract, daily rate, overall rate, all the vehicle and the person information, etc etc etc.
In the last 8 weeks I did paperwork for my own truck , a friends truck, 24 motorcycles including rented and privatelly owned motorcycles for crossing from Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and finally Mexico.

26 vehicles in one day ... and again ... some privatelly owned and some rented.

This is the catch.

Insurance for the vehicles are not mandatory in Mexico, nevertheless; insurance can be bought at most border crossing or border towns.

Hey Bob ... is that Sanborn's insurance the ones you can find on the American side?

I cannot remember right now ...

Yep, Sanborn's, but they're more $'s than the online sources.
One thing Sanborn's does offer is insurance for Central America, although I've enever purchased it from them.

Ok, it sounds like we can "rent" the bikes to the guy taking them accross and that we can purchase insurance for everything before he goes, including the "rented" bike.

Is this correct guys?

Yup

Once your "customer" has imported the bike, if he chooses to do so, may purchase the insurance.
