Perhaps a Cambodia Motorcycle Tour is more suited with warm weather, friendly people and the chance to ride in a stunning country. Rivers, good food and a mix of dirt and tarmac roads are fantastic here.

Or maybe a Eastern Europe Motorcycle tour across the Transfagaran Highway or a Australia motorbike adventure with Charley Boorman of Long Way Round fame?

Our short motorcycle tours offer a lot of experiences in a short amount of time and we'd love to have you ride with us!

Understanding The Tour Grade System

This ride grade system is a guide only and it should not be assumed that if a grade 4 ride, for example, is booked and a rider has had limited experience on dirt that it will be beyond them.

Likewise it should not be assumed that if a grade one ride is booked a rider is assured that no dirt will be ever encountered, governments love road works.
