Self-Guided Motorcycle Adventure Tours

If you're excited about adventure travel in any of the regions on our website, the lowest cost, and perhaps best way of having such an international motorcycle tour is to do it Self-Guided!
While we've had a blast on our Guided Group Tours with Customers, we also recognize that some travelers prefer to be alone, or within their own private group of friends. As such, we offer Self-Guided "Fly & RIDE" packages and rental opportunities.

Have a look at some of the pre-packaged options below, and let us know how you want to best enjoy your motorcycle trip. At the very minimum, RIDE Adventures will always be providing you with a properly-maintained, late model motorcycle, and the necessary paperwork, authorizations, and insurance for crossing international borders. Part of our service is also answering your questions about which of these routes you would enjoy the most, so Contact Us via the form shown, and let us know: What would make the perfect international adventure for you?

One of the World's Most Expensive Hobbies (motorcycle riding) demands that we're careful with spending when possible.  So if you're looking to save money, but still experience the great motorcycle trip opportunities we promote, why not just reserve one of our motorcycles and follow an itinerary we put together for you? This "Do It Yourself" approach in some cases means you'll spend about half of what the guided tours cost, and perhaps add that certain sense of satisfaction that comes with the "Lone Wolf" spirit of adventure.  With helpful services from RIDE Adventures, this is actually quite easy to accomplish.

How To Create a Low Cost Self-Guided Motorcycle Trip

Step 1:  Decide what type of terrain, surroundings, scenery and cultural experiences you're interested in or specifically which country(s) you want to RIDE in.

Step 2:  Contact Us and tell us how many days you can spend traveling with these guidelines in mind:

  • Trust us as the experts when it comes to saying how long it takes to ride each region. Collectively, we have hundreds of thousands of kilometers of riding experience, and we know how long each route takes in all the countries on www.rideadv.com.
  • Keeping in mind that we want you to see the most exciting and beautiful routes and scenery, don't be surprised if some tour routes keep you at an average of 150miles (240km) per day in some regions. We'll encourage you to check out the rarest and most unique spots if you're up for it!
  • Plan on having 1 "rest day" every 3-4 days. Trust us, international riding and the people you meet along the way will be exhilerating, but potentially tiring as well!

Step 3: Be prepared to answer our questions about what else you want included, for example, printed notes and turn-by-turn directions, hotel reservation packages, or anything else. We know, the services you want included will probably depend on the prices, but we'll get to that once we know more about what you want.

Step 4:  Our communications with you will make it easy to explain an exact cost based on the services you'd like included, and again, we can help you make sure you're doing this as low-cost as possible.

Step 5: Reserve everything through RIDE Adventures right here in the U.S.!
