How much does insurance for a KLR650 cost in Los Angeles

Hello Riders!

I know that this question is a bit difficult to answer, but if someone could give me a clue what to expect it would be great.

This winter I am going to ride a KLR650 from Los Angeles down to Central America and need to buy a insurance for the bike.
I am living in Norway and are 34 years old. I have a Norwegian driving licence for motorbike, car, bus and lorry with a trailer. I have had my driving licence for a motorbike the last 16 years, but can only document owning a motorbike the last two and a half years.

I would like to have included theft and fire in the insurance. I am myself insured through my travel insurance.

LA Insurance will only be good in the US. You can get insurance for Mexico at the border, I can only assume you can do that in the other South American country's also...Hope this helps some...Doug

Hello Dougly.

I have checked insurance in the central America and Mexico on the Horizon Unlimited web page. Insurence for those counties can be bought on the net in advance.

I guess I was a bitt unclear in my first post, but I am just thinking of how much the insurance I need to ride the bike in the US will cost. I will use the adress of a friend of mine in Los Angeles to insure the bike.

I live about 70 miles from LA and I have been quoted anywhere from $300.00 to $2,300.00 a year. I have been licensed for almost thirty years in California.

The fact that you are not a citizen of California brings in a whole new twist.

You might want to contact one of the insurance companies and find out how much insurance would be for you while you are here on travel. I would contact Progressive Insurance, I have full coverage for them here in Montana and it is only $108 a year. I can't imagine that many of the big insurance companies would have a problem insuring you while your in the states using your home address...Doug

MEXICO INSURANCE.

When my wife and I go to Mexico we buy our insurance from Mexico on line. "SANBORNS INSURANCE" is who we use. I/we do not have any affiliation with them at all. They seem to have the most user friendly set up to purchase the insurance. They provide the PFF so you can print all of your documents on line.

Thanks for replying.

300-2300$ DSjunky! Scary! Hopefully, I will not end up in the upper part of the scale...

I will look into Progressive Insurance and see if that is a good place to insure the bike since I am not a US citizen.
I think 108$ is really cheap, dougly.

I have also looked into the Sanborns Insurance, Bill, and were planning to use that on. But first I got to get the US insurance sorted out.

Thanks again.

I have Allstate insurance here in KY, and for 4 bikes it is $550. I would contact some of the larger firms via e-mail and see if they could hook you up. How long you will be in the states could be a major factor in the price. Your insurance company there in Norway may be able to point you in the right direction.
Have a safe and fun trip, most of us here would like to be going with you on a ride like that. :smile:

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
