I have just submitted a quote so I will let you know what they come back with for 6 months in the USA and Canada.
I imagine it could be a bit pricey. Another one to try is Fernet.

Just out of curiosity OnHellas, who did you self insure your bikes with to cover theft and damage?

Re: Great news! USA and Canada Insurance

Yes, it seems like they're the most comprehensive option available currently, with $300,000 third party liability, which isn't massive, but better than Seguro Gringo, a Mexican broker we had to use last time with a limit of $20,000.

Re: It could be time to make the Tenere call.

I imagine it's because they know they can get away with charging it after a successful launch, rather than Brexi. And on the Yamaha website it does indicate £8999 as being the OTR price, so not sure where the £9150 comes from that's just what's listed on eBay.

Re: It could be time to make the Tenere call.

Looks like a price rise to £9k for 2020. They seem to be £9150 for the new ones on eBay.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

No real differences Onyerbike. I think they tweaked a few little bits; like the throttle cable routing to avoid it snapping as there had been a few cases of it, but definitely nothing major between 18 and 19 bikes. I've had both years and can't tell any difference.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I don't think anyone knows at the minute other than that it was a rental bike. Good point about lack of any other damage. I can't say I'm personally fussed by it. Maybe I should be. But my thought is that until it starts happening to one owner bikes with known usage (outside of India) then I'm not g...

Re: John O’Groats to Land’s End

This is the route I use. Avoids most built up areas. About 1400 miles all up.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Hi Himalyees. A couple of questions please. 1 - I read Nathan Millward’s and Chris Scott’s excellent write ups but don’t remember either of them mention the chain. Is it a quality item? Adjustment? Lubing? Etc.... 2 - It has a very low seat height and I need a very high seat height (my 1200gs is 93...

Re: Hi fellow RE Himalayan owners, and all adventure riders!

The brains of RE are mainly based in Leicester at the technology centre at Bruntingthorpe so it's a shame that there's such a disconnect between the niggles on the ground here in the UK and the ability to get them cured back at the factory. You'd think it'd be straight forward, especially with the r...
