We have negotiated some very special services & offers – exclusive to our riders.
We are often asked, Is it better to ride your own motorcycle, hire or rent a motorcycle for the expeditions?
In our opinion there is no substitute for riding your own motorcycle, as well as the history, peace of mind and shear pleasure – it is also by far the most practical and cost efficient way to do the rides.
Hiring, or ‘renting’ motorcycles – gives you far more un-certainties, potential liabilities as well as ultimately costing you significantly more. If you are an overseas rider and do not have your own motorcycle in the UK or Europe, there are two good options which many previous expedition participants have used;
- Fly your own motorcycle into UK or Europe ahead of the expedition – this is something we can assist with, see below.
- Buy a UK registered motorcycle, prepare for the ride, then either ship it home and keep the bike after the trip, or let us ship it back to UK and re-sell it for you – returning the net sale proceeds to you.We can assist with all aspects of your ride preparations
MotoExplorer is dedicated to make your pre-ride planning run as smoothly as possible. To help you get ready for the big adventures ahead, here’s some extra services we can provide for you,
- Bike parts and spare tyres sourcing, and storage pre-expedition, parts sourced at trade prices.
- Motorcycle collection, for any in-bound to UK riders, we can organise collecting your bike from freight centres, or any port in the UK, and hold your bike in secure storage ahead of the expedition.
- We can deliver the bike to you, ride ready, any location as you fly into UK to start your tour.
- Delivery of your motorcycle & ride kit to any UK airport + airport collection for you, when you fly into Britain ahead of your expedition.
- Return your bike to storage after your tour; we can store for you to return & ride more of UK/Europe, or assist with the resale, or onward freight.
- Source & store: We can source any motorcycle for your tour, return it to UK, or we’ll organise freight transport back to UK, store for you, freight worldwide, or re-sell for you. It’s a much more personal service than hiring bikes to tour; it’s your bike, we kit & prep it for you = more flexibility and freedom for you to tour & explore riding out from Europe.
- Hotel-to-Hotel, door to door service: You can have the bike delivered to your hotel.
- Maps for the expedition; Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, China, Laos & Thailand – we can provide maps and ride notes for the whole expedition.
