|Option motorcycle model warranty:|
|If the desired model is available, Eaglerider® will confirm the booking for the desired model, but Eaglerider® reserves the right to give you an alternative model from this category if your desired model is not available. This can happen, for example, if your previous renter returned the motorcycle with damage. If a certain model is very important to you, Eaglerider® guarantees this model for an extra charge of 100 EUR/one time per rental. In the unlikely event that this service does not work on site, you will get a motorcycle of the same category and this fee will be returned immediately.|
|Security deposit: 750 USD|
|The deposit can only be paid by credit card|
|1/2 double rooms can be booked on request; if a 1/2 double room is already available, we will confirm your booking. If the 1/2 double room is not yet available, we will confirm a single room first.

|An honest word among bikers|
|With the following lines we would like to prepare you for the adventure of your life. You are either about to book one of the most beautiful types of travel, or you have already done so. The biggest difference between our holiday type and a general package tour is that you are actively involved. Riding a motorcycle is one of the most beautiful things in life. At least for us bikers. The main focus of the trip is motorcycling through unique landscapes. We have designed the programs in such a way that both driving fun and experience are available in sufficient quantity.|
|Team spirit and adaptation in the group are absolutely necessary, just as you need to bring a certain basic fitness and experience, so that we can reach the goal together, happy and healthy. If you have doubts about your health, fitness or experience, please contact us beforehand. We would like to achieve the optimal holiday experience for you as well.|
|The daily stages are on average 250 - 400 kilometres long. That sounds a lot, but cannot be compared with the same route in Europe, considering that often 80 kilometres without passing through a town and a whole day without traffic lights are on the programme. There are also traffic jams as good as never. We are rarely in the saddle for more than five hours during the whole day. We reach our daily destination between 16 - 18 o'clock, depending on the season. Depending on the weather or temperatures, we may have to get out a little earlier or reach our daily destination later. However, if we want to experience a picture book sunset with full intention, it will be a little later.|
|Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.|
