US based insurance does not cover out of USA and Canada.

My ins adjuster was great to deal with.

I'm confused now. Must have missed something.
The Yukon is considered part of Canada isn't it...?

Will keep updated here as things start to happen.
I really admire you for what you have done, both for your wife and on your bike. I to am in the midst of a career change and have had to *shudder* enter the job market once again ! I have been self employed for the last 14 years so it was a massive shock to the system.

You sound like the sort of person who will make the most of any opportunity that comes along and I look forward to hearing how you go.

Blessings to you mate.

Aaron.

If someone from the US is riding into canada , talk to your agent ! Evidently not all insurance covers you . Had a buddy get in a wreck in BC and lost his truck because his insurance was no good . Both in 87' and 2010 I double checked with my agent and was covered . Also carried the insurance through S.P.O.T. , $100,000 worth of medical transport insurance for $10 or so . Air ambulance rates are a bit higher than a city cab .

We had to get a Canadian insurance card for each bike ( no charge ) from our insurance company.

finished already

I thought for sure that our paths would cross along the way somewhere in this small world. I am sad to hear your second chapter is now closed.
But i hope to follow you in your next chapter to see how you adapt back in to the real world after traveling so extensively.........because i wonder that of myself when my money runs out and i have to join the game again.
That will be of great interest to me as i have become so God Damn Independent these days.

I thought our paths might cross as well...... They still might.

Will let you know. I had planned for a transition period, which I am in right now. No real news as I settle home and start exploring my options..... Not sure which direction I will go yet.....


Stay tuned
