Before I go through the hell of trying to contact my insurance company through a call centre : I'm going to the North West 200 in Northern Ireland in May.
I've been told that I need to inform my insurance company before traveling there.  Is this true or have I been fed b#ll sh#t ?

Northern Ireland is still in the UK, unless Teresa has sold them down the river, and as such you should not have to inform your insurance company. If you cross the border into Ireland some companies need to be informed but this should not be an issue.

Its BS just to prove it if your nicked for speeding it counts back in England if you haven’t been before and go the Jockland route the law know it’s the  NW weekend and await you with glee if your speeding hence why we always go/return Holyhead.

If you have European cover you are covered in both North and South Ireland.
What should I buy next?
