I'm still trying to figure how to get insurance for a U.S. registered bike.
"Green Card" - RTWDoug has a source for about 60 Euro/month that I used in July. If you go through ADAC or similar it's about 105 Euro/month (granted, the liability limits are low with the Romanian insurance).

I had a bike shipped/stored with Stefan for 4 years. I sold it when I left in July to a USAF SSgt. I want to get a more dirt-oriented bike and my old GSX100G was not worth the shipping costs to bring it home.

I kept minimum US insurance on it to keep my US registration in effect (a requirement in VA - no insurance, no registration) and bought Green Card for the times I was riding it.

US plates on a bike in Europe are a great conversation starter
