More info to come!
Immersive (one week and longer) guided trips that are outside of one's normal riding and living patterns are always transformational. You will be changed by each new experience, and by mile-after-mile of incredible new roads and riding environments, and by getting to know or encountering all kinds of interesting new people...

Each tour size ranges from 6 to 10 riders.
We offer a high staff-to-guest ratio, which allows us to make our tours as safe and enjoyable as possible in all areas of the world. Since we will be traveling on little-known back roads with help being hours away, all of our staff is certified in back-country first aid and trained in motorcycle maintenance. The guides will also be carrying satellite phones. A support van with plenty of room for storage will follow each tour. A trailer with a spare bike will be provided for certain tours (this service will be noted on the "Tour Information" page when available).
It is highly recommended to be familiar with - or get familiar with - the motorcycle you choose for the tour. Dirt riding experience is a must for those participating in the Alaska and Patagonia tours. If you do not have off-road, motocross racing, or dualsport racing experience, we highly recommend signing up for an off-road school. If you do not have access to an off-road school, find dirt roads and trails in your area to practice on until you are comfortable – then practice some more! Our main requirement is that each rider fully understands the importance of riding responsibly and within his/her abilities once on the road with us.
The weather on these tours can vary greatly (hot, cold, wet, dry...) - especially in Alaska, southern Patagonia, and Inuvik - so riders need to be prepared for anything. Riding gear that is not only protective but weather-resistant or weather-proof and that can accommodate both hot and cold temperatures is a must. Waterproof boots, gloves, socks, bugspray, hiking shoes, full-faced helmet, a good camera, etc., are all recommended for our tours. Please see our Recommended Gear pages for more details.
We try to accommodate each rider's bike choices whenever possible. About 30 days before the start of a tour, the bikes will be solidified for each rider (depending upon the tour). You may or may not get your first choice.
Larger bikes are not recommended for the Alaska or Patagonia tours. If you would like to request a larger bike for either of these tours, you will need prior approval from our lead guide.
Couples are encouraged to join our tours (unless otherwise noted in the specific tour's information). If riding conditions do not allow two-up riding, the support van is always there to transport the non-rider along the tour routes when needed.
You will be required to fill out a registration form to participate in our Tours or Rides. A Release and Waiver of Liability provided at the start of the tour or event will also need to be signed before participating.
If you have any questions concerning any of the forms mentioned in this section, please contact us.
A deposit is required on all of our tours (please see each tour's "Pricing" page to find out the amount of deposit). This deposit is non-refundable, but is transferable to another party or to a different tour date (subject to availability). The balance is usually due 60-90 days before the start of each tour (depending upon the tour). This information will be noted on each tour's “Pricing” page.
Cancellations must be received more than 60 days prior to departure for a full refund. Cancellations received less than 60 days from departure will receive a 50% refund. If your reservation is filled by another rider, a full refund less the deposit will be issued. After 60 days, deposits are NOT refundable, but ARE transferable to a different party or to a later date (subject to availability). We strongly suggest that riders purchase traveler's insurance prior to registering for a tour to help off-set any costs involved in the event of a cancellation.
