Motorcycles on this tour:
Please note: Not all types are available at all stations. Since we are not the direct service provider for the motorcycles, we can not guarantee for the "first motorcycle request".
So that everything is clear in advance: Our partner requires mandatory indication of a replacement desired machine at the time of booking and gives us a MOTORCYCLE CLASS GUARANTEE. This means that we will confirm your initial request (if available on the day of booking) and as an alternative a guarantee within the booked / requested category.
Class mix in booking is not allowed.
OPTION MOTORCYCLE MODEL GUARANTEE: If the desired model is available, then our partner confirms the booking for the desired model, however, he 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, then this model will be guaranteed to you for an extra charge of 125 EUR/unique per rental.
In the unlikely event that this service does not work out on the spot, then you will get a motorcycle from the same category and this fee back immediately.

An honest word among bikers:
With the next lines we would like to prepare you in the best way 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 type of holiday and a general package tour is that you are actively involved. Riding a motorcycle is one of the best things in life. At least for us bikers. The focus of the trip is motorcycling through unique landscapes. We have designed the programs in such a way that both riding fun and experience are present 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 destination together happy and healthy. If you have any doubts about your health, fitness or experience levels, please contact us beforehand. We want to achieve the best holiday experience for you too. The daily stages are on average 250 - 400 kilometers long. That sounds a lot, but it can't be compared to the same route in Europe, considering that there are often 80 kilometers without passing through a town and a whole day without traffic lights during the program. There are also hardly any traffic jams. We are rarely in the saddle for more than five hours throughout the day. We reach our daily destination between 4 - 6 p.m., depending on the season. Depending on the weather and daily temperatures, it can happen that we have to leave 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.
