GlobeRiders offers the most fascinating and challenging itineraries of any motorcycle tour operator on the planet . And, we go the extra distance to ship your motorcycle for every tour. At the end of the day, you can truly say "I did it on my own."
We're delighted to see an increasingly international mix of participants on our tours and welcome riders from any country. In addition, your spouse, family members (18 and older), partner or friend are welcome to join in, either riding "pillion" with you, or as passengers in our chase/support vehicles.
Unless required by local regulations, we don't do a "group ride". Every day, you have the option of riding solo, with friends new and old, or with our guides. We offer the experience of global touring in a supported environment. Our guidelines are few, and we will work with you to make every riding day exceed your expectations.
Our adventure tours are for the rider/traveler who desires an experience few others will ever equal. We offer tours from 19 to 65 days in duration. We travel to over 27 countries that only a handful of riders have ever visited. Not just anyone may join our tours. You have to qualify. You must have the right experience, the right bike and the flexibility to deal with the unexpected. You'll need a GPS to ride with us. And along the way, we'll hold clinics and tech sessions to share all that we've learned with you.
Our goal is to take you to places that few will ever see. To make it your experience, shipping your motorcycle for each tour’s departure is but one of the many personalized services we offer. Pre-tour, we create and moderate web-based forums where riders can ask questions, share knowledge and get to know one another before leaving home. We work with you to make you truly self-sufficient for the journey that lies ahead.
Pre-departure, you'll receive a tour-specific RoadBook, a MapBook and a complete GPS datafile with waypoints, tracks, and the occasional route to guide you to each day's destination.
Should a partner, family member or friend wish to participate, they may ride as a pillion passenger (two-up) with you on your bike, or on most tours, we will upgrade our chase vehicle so they may travel as a vehicle passenger, with the option to ride with you when it makes sense.
Because it’s about far-away places and foreign cultures, we incorporate scenic attractions, cultural visits and selected activities along the way. For example, on our Africa Adventure, we fly you into the Okavango Delta for a multi-day safari by boat, canoe and 4x4. For every tour, we book the best available accommodations in advance, insuring a good night’s rest, allowing you to wake fully refreshed and ready to roll for the next day’s ride.
We maintain a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page that explains our tours and processes, and may answer question you didn't even know you had, to go there, please click here.
On every adventure, we publish a Live!Journal, a weblog of photos and stories from staff and riders, all served up via email newsletter updates and a special section on our website. Come take a virtual tour with us and immerse yourself in an exotic adventure from the comfort of your own chair, just click here and we'll take you there.
We are unique in producing a growing line of adventure and instructional DVDs. Short of being there, there's nothing better than a great movie, and learning how to equip and maintain your bike goes a long ways towards building your confidence as an adventure rider. To see our current DVD offerings, please click here.
Our newsletters will inform you about new tours, notify you when Live!Journals are available, and cover "all things GlobeRiders". We do not share your information with anyone, and a Safe Unsubscribe link is included at the bottom of every newsletter. If you'd like to subscribe, please use the sign-up field below:
