We highly recommend the use of adequate protective motorcycle gloves, sturdy shoes or boots, and riding trousers. Participants need to provide their own protective equipment and clothing.
License: You need a motorcycle license for any motorcycle over 125cc. Generally you do not need an International Driver's Licence if your own licence is printed in English but they are easy to get and not a bad idea to bring one.
