Hire Bikes.

As an official BMW Travel Partner you will be unsurprised to know we ride and recommend only BMW.   All new BMW bikes are equipped with ABS and Catalytic Converters as standard making them some of the safest and most environmentally friendly machines available. 

Our hire bikes fall into two different catagories:

Firstly there are the bikes that you can choose to include as part of a Classic and European Explorer Tours.   This fleet is made up of a range of new BMW motorcycles all under one year old and equipped with 

  • BMW Panniers and inner bags
  • BMW Top Box and inner bag
  • Tank Bag
  • Heated Grips
  • GPS Unit, pre programmed with your tour routes

Many are equipped with cruise control, electronic suspension and traction control as well. The bikes are comprehensively insured with a £1,500 excess (deductible).  You can reduce the excess to £500 by upgrading the cover for just £10 per day. Please note that for tours in Morocco and for any days riding in Bosnia Herzegovina bikes are insured for Third Party liability only.  

For Non European Explorer and Adventure Tours we work with local suppliers around the world, who are also BMW Travel Partners. The choice of bikes will be similar but the equipment may vary. However all will be equipped as follows:

  • Panniers (Although you can in some cases opt not to have these)
  • Option to have a Top Box*
  • Option to have a Tank Bag*

* There is no charge for these options on most tours.

You can take you own GPS or you can hire one locally. The bikes have a minimum of third party insurance and there may be an option to upgrade this cover. Check each tour for exact cover included for that tour. In certain countries the panniers used may not be BMW panniers.

Please carefully read the TERMS AND CONDITIONS for hiring a bike as part of a tour.  If at the point of hire / bike pick up you are unable to hire due to not complying to the terms and conditions, you will not be able to ride and no refund of the hire or tour will be possible.

  Riding fun is the aim, ride comfort and
safety is the way to achieve it. But
everyone has a different sized body.
The key is seat height and the
so-called inner leg curve.  Follow the
