Ain't nuthin' "free" but advice, folks.
Advice worth the price!

Mexico Moto Insurance

Anyone got any recommendations on Mex moto insurance? My US insurance is with Progressive (formerly Drive) through USAA. I think I used Agencia (or Asegurados?) Tepayac six years ago but things change.

I have used Medex for my travel health insurance for the past few years...I hear people talking about MedJet Assist as well...any productive thoughts on travel health insurance would be welcome as well...I know that, like any insurance, it can be tricky and boilerplated and they are happy to take your money and reluctant to give any up...love the remains repatriation provisions of these policies! I wanna be planted at Arlington National next to my grandparents!

But one assumes you'd have no problem giving your expert opinion on a boob job?

I am available for free private consultations.

Lets just see if PJ can undercut my price!

(This offer excludes men, or humans previously classified as men)

A little laugh courtesy of the Mystery Rider who never takes himself too seriously!

And in other news, it is the Independence Day weekend here, and if any of you cabrones start shouting, "Viva Celine Dion" there will be trouble. Besides, Celine Dion isn't Canadian, she's from Quebec. Quebec is the Iran of North America. I think I just made Bob Loblaw laugh a little.
Don't be dissing Dion! I will put banana peels on your moto tires! As far as the rest of Quebec is concerned, I think y'all ought to let them succeed as they wish or better yet, give them all a plane ticket to France or anywhere else as long as it is a one way ticket. Isn't there a French island south of Newfoundland? Send them there!

Extra points for a natural feel. Like Mark said, the offer doesn't apply to males or the formerly male. No offense guys, but that's just an area where I tend to be a little old fashioned ;)

I have carried Medjet in the past. Have heard plenty of good things about them.

For vehicle insurance both before and while I was in the RGV I used Sanborn. Personally, I have stopped buying insurance for a motorcycle but in fairness most of the guys here think that is a mistake. Only time will tell ;)

[QUOTE=rockymountainoyster;19592562]Anyone got any recommendations on Mex moto insurance? My US insurance is with Progressive (formerly Drive) through USAA. I think I used Agencia (or Asegurados?) Tepayac six years ago but things change.

The last years I have been buying annual drivers license insurance from these folks http://www.mexicanautoins.com/
and have no complaints Can be done very quickly over this medium ..An entire year of LIABILITY only
policy of this type is far less expensive than a vehicle dedicated policy bought for a single trip of about a month . .
I think Sanborns will also write the type of drivers license policy, but you need to ask specifically.

And I have no complaints about the Canadian medical system ,as it is because of that that I am still walking around on two legs with enough money left over to have the "freedom " to visit Mexico. Sure there are some problems , but the urgent cases get looked after.Hopeless cases are sad but they would be hopeless cases in whatever system was in use ,regardless of how many dollars were spent. The business about "freedom to choose " is a red herring. Nobody living in any organized society is totally "free" to choose whatever one wishes. e.g./ are traffic rules to be considered an infringement of "freedom" and should everybody just ignore them at will if they think they want to be free?

Well you sure have bought it hook, line and sinker! Organized societies do in fact have laws and regulation that are set up or supposed to be set up to protect the public at large. As citizens, it is our responsibility to pay for those services. Our military, education, police and fire fighters are the first that come to mind. Up to your post, no one has even come close to mentioning those type things! You are using an apple to prove a case for an orange!

The discussion has centered on Health Care of which there is a huge debate going on in the US at this time and what we call Social Security as a side note. Some countries lean way to the left, such as our European friends, some countries have traditionally leaned to the right, as had the US. As you know, there are many in our country that think the present administration is trying to force our country to follow the European Plan. There are many of us that are deeply in disagreement on this path. As far as where Canada sits on this plane, I guess each of you will have your own mind. However, I am of the impression that the last round of national elections up there started the pendulum swinging back a bit to the more conservative manner of thinking.

The Socialist Leaning Models fail as soon as you run out of the other people's money!

You are not from the Quebec area are you!
