weekend motorcycle tours

 

Italy in pills. We have designed a total of 12  Long Weekend tours (3/4 riding days, but can easily be extended to 5 or 6 days) to sample bits of Italy with a lower impact on your holiday time and budget. Fly and sample a jam packed motorcycle ride taking just two work days off.

We have kept a close eye on budget and have selected good, comfortable and clean 3 star hotels for the nights included in the ride. We have kept meals out of the budget so you only pay for what you eat and drink. All luggage will be on the bikes and the support van will be on standby, but not with us all the time. All of our bikes are equipped with enough luggage space for two people for 3 nights. 

If you require a guide this can be added with a small surcharge, which especially convenient with small groups. You will receive an itinerary booklet and a detailed 1:200.000 scale map of the area you'll be riding. GPS satnav units are also available as an extra. These are useful units but never rely on them 100%.
