‘THE BEST OF THE BEST’

  • “The Big Big Golden Triangle West and East mega tour”
  • Over nine days you will test your stamina and riding skills along 2600 km of what have justly been dubbed the best riding roads in the world.
  • This route will blow you away!
  • We take you to the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar, a remote region once ruled by opium warlords, and still steeped in mystery and the intrigue of fast-vanishing traditions. Then there is the mother of South East Asia’s rivers, the Mighty Mekhong.
  • We have pioneered trails along its banks so you can be charmed by its contrasts and challenged by its contours. The views across the mighty Mekhong will stay with you forever, believe me!

Adventure:

Not only do our Classic Motorcycle Holidays provide the riding experience of your life, they also take you to unique destinations – Hill Tribe Villages, waterfalls, hot springs, and remote national borders.

Sensation:

With incredible torque, the charge to your senses our range of lovingly maintained Bonneville’s and Enfield’s provide is an experience any passionate bike enthusiast will be thrilled by.

Scenery:

You will be genuinely awed by the forest and mountain vistas you will be riding through; Northern Thailand has the most scenic motorcycle tours Asia can offer – photo opportunities galore!

Intrigue:

Following the Mighty Mekhong River, and traversing the Golden Triangle loop, you will see Thailand’s borders with Laos and Myanmar, once warred over by opium lords, and still home to seldom visited settlements rich in culture and tradition.

Charm & Charisma:

The Triumph and Royal Enfield’s of yesteryear have been re-imagined and re-engineered to give you the performance you expect in the 21st century, while still having the retro charm their names suggests.
