Motorcycle touring has become big business over the last decade. If you’re out there looking to embark on a guided motorcycle tour, chances are you will be overwhelmed with the choice available. If you’ve narrowed down on the region you are planning to visit, that will help filter down the list of available tour operators but even then, picking from the ones available isn’t easy.
As riders, we all have great expectations from our rides. It needs to be tailored as per our preferences. It shouldn’t be just another tour, it needs to have a certain level of excitement, freedom and thrill.
India has become a very popular destination among riders from all around the world. With a diverse topography and some of the finest riding roads in the world, India has something to offer all throughout the year. The destination of choice for most local and international riders are the isolated regions of the Himalayas. As a result, there have been a number of motorcycle touring companies that have setup shop in the last few years to cater to these riders. However, picking one can be arduous. With so many to choose from, how can one decide which one to go for?
If reputation and experience are anything to go by, then Motomonks is a company that stands out from the crowd. It is run by some of the nicest riders I’ve met and their enthusiasm is what makes this company alive. Having been on over 15 rides to the Himalayas myself, I have come across many tour companies and most of them weren’t impressive in terms of service, communication and most of all, the experience.
Motorcycle touring isn’t all about renting motorcycles and following a leader. It’s about the experience that the company can lead you through. Most importantly, it’s about getting from A to B safely and having the best possible experience en route. The motorcycles should be in best shape, the route should be able to highlight the best of what the region has to offer and the guide should be knowledgeable. Motomonks ensure that all of these requirements are met and exceeded.
When you do something out of passion, it shows. That’s the story with Motomonks. It was born out of the passion to ride. Currently, they operate guided tours on Royal Enfield Motorcycles in the Himachal, Ladakh, Bhutan, Goa and Southern Indian states. Each trip has its own appeal and they are all very different from each other in terms of scenery and riding conditions. They even provide customized tours if you or your friends have a particular route or a destination in mind. They will cover all the logistics while you can enjoy the pleasure of riding.
If India is on your riding destination this year, then give Motomonks a shout. To know more about their tours or the team, visit www.motomonks.com
