Itinerary

How To Experience Motorcycle Tours in Europe on a Budget

Step 1: Contact Us and tell us how many days you’d like to travel, what type of riding terrain and scenery you’d like to experience, or any specific famous sites or regions across Europe that you don’t want to miss, like:

  • For those who prefer riding motorcycles on pavement, look no further than Europe as these legendary routes through the Alps, Dolomites, Black Forest, and more have been smoothly covered for some time now. The twists and turns through some of the most incredible settings on the planet simply do not disappoint.
  • If off-pavement riding is your thing, you can still enjoy a bit of it if you contact us about off-road specific riding. Around Croatia, for example, we can make sure you’re enjoying as little pavement as possible.
  • The Adriatic Coast is home to lots of great European motorcycle tour experiences, along with fresh seafood and friendly people situated in fascinating cities rich with world history. Rely on ferry services to make islands like Hvar part of your adventure ride.
  • We offer our Alps Moto Explorer tour as a guided motorcycle tour package, but you’re also welcome to complete this same route on your own without a guided group. Combining your dates with BMW’s Motorrad Days in Garmisch or other opportunities to see the hometown of BMW Motorcycles can make for a very “motorcycle specific” riding vacation!

Step 2: Choose Your Motorcycle from the list of options below, and if you’re unsure of which is the right bike for your trip, of course we’re happy to make suggestions.

Step 3: Choose Add-On Options: We always offer information on the best routes, scenery, etc. if you can tell us more about what you’re interested in, and in most cases, we also offer hotel packages, GPS usage, and perhaps some other services like ferry bookings, etc. Be prepared to answer our questions about what else you want included, aside from just the motorcycle rental, insurance, and authorizations that we automatically arrange for you.

Step 4: Reserve everything you need through RIDE Adventures – We're an experienced company, headquartered in the U.S., so you can rest assured that you’ve booked your upcoming motorcycle vacation in Europe through an informed, reputable, reliable, and fun provider of travel services!

BMW F750GS

Not everyone needs a gigantic adventure bike to have fun, and the BMW F750GS fills that niche of "big enough for the long haul, small enough to have fun." With a power-to-weight ratio similar to the bigger models, 77hp can be used to hang with any other adventure bike on the market and perhaps be even more fun when it comes to the dirt roads and tight switchbacks.

BMW F800GS

Certainly considered the “athlete” of the BMW team, the F800GS can be counted on to carry all your travel gear and still maintain the awesome feeling of a pure off-road machine when you’re in the dirt.  With over 215mm of suspension travel, the F800GS boasts 85 horsepower from its twin-cylinder engine, and is sure to give an adrenaline rush when you unleash it!

BMW F850GS

When it's predecessor launched in 2009, the world recognized the beauty of a "middle-weight" adventure bike, perhaps most appropriately built to handle it all. The new BMW F850GS builds on a decade of riders trotting the globe on a machine with all the power you could ever need, and agility to go have almost dirt-bike-like fun when the luggage and passenger aren't along for the ride.

BMW R1200GS - Liquid Cooled

BMW R1200GS - Liquid Cooled

Revised back in 2013, BMW it seems has done it once again in the world of adventure motorcycles. The new liquid-cooled version of the famous R1200GS comes with a more "upright" stance and off-road friendly positioning.  Now with a wet clutch, a higher air intake perfect for river crossings, and a 10% horsepower increase over the previous model, BMW has clearly made improvements on what was already a great adventure bike.

BMW R1200GS Adventure

Whereas the standard R1200GS was plenty of motorcycle, the Adventure model is just a little bit more.  More fuel capacity, more wind protection, more suspension travel, more carrying capacity, and more crash protection. For the serious expedition rider:  More motorcycle might be what you need!

BMW R1200GS Adventure (2014+ Liquid Cooled)

Just a year after releasing the Liquid Cooled R1200GS, BMW's famous Adventure model or "GSA" was introduced, and for all the right reasons. Like its predecessor, the "GSA LC" as we tend to call it boasts 125 liquid cooled horsepower and has the fuel capacity and carrying capability to make the longest and most remote adventures a reality. At the same time, it's still a thrill when in tight mountain switchbacks and twisties!

BMW R1250GS

Freshly updated after multiple generations of industry-leading design, BMW's R1250GS is yet another masterpiece coming from the company that many will claim pioneered the thought of adventure riding. Boasting 136hp now, yet still maintaining the "flickability" many of us feel in the GS line, load up the bike or head out solo, and you're sure to have a blast from this high performance machine.
