    depends - some travel policies exclude cover for injuries incurred when riding a bike - read the T&Cs - download a PDF and search for "motorcycle" - if unsure, tell us the insurer and someone will check for you, maybe

    That depends on what your normal travel policy is, whether it covers your mrs as well as you, whether it covers France and whether it caters for the sort of motoycling you might have in mind.

    Read the policy you have in your hands and draw your own conclusions.

Off road riding needs a higher level.
    Another vote for GetGoing. One of the few companies which will quote me for my medical conditions and riding the bike. Very reasonable cost, too.
    As happy as can be!
    Grumpy old twat. And getting grumpier by the minute.

    What about for trips outside Europe ? On motorbikes (like a GS1200 ) ?
    I am thinking of places like Morocco etc
    Do the same recommendations apply ? Or are there specialist companies which the motorcycle tour organisers recommend ?

    I just had a look on the Direct Line website and the annual multi-trip policy says :
    • Motorcycling (up to 125cc, crash helmet
    must be worn, cover excludes third party
    liability)

    So how do you go about getting that limit (125cc) increased to say 1200cc ?

    You take out separate travel insurance like the thread is about.
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    Get Going cover worldwide - you may need an activity pack if riding off road - I punched in a few dates, a Europe only trip cost just under £15, same dates worldwide £35 on their top tier cover. They give you the option of excluding North America as that bumps up the cost.

    The OP said :

    Personally, I have annual multi-trip cover for winter sports / off piste skiing and scuba diving ( as most "standard" travel insurance policies excude off-piste and depths below 30m)

    But both my existing policies have the same 125cc motorcycle limit on them

    So I would be cautious about relying on the Direct Line travel insurance

    Holidaysafe covers Morocco, gravel tracks but not full off piste. I have bought their cover but never had to claim.
