We are more than happy to answer all your questions and concerns and in an effort to provide an even better service we are here listing the answers to the most common questions so you can get a head of the game. We look forward to riding with you!
There are no riding gear included in the Motorcycle rental. We do have limited gear available to rent (but no boots are available).
We strongly recommend you bring your own helmet and riding gear for optimal comfort and safety. We also recommend that you use high touring boots and protective gear at all times while on the bike and you should carry a pull-over rain-suite on the bike at all times if your riding gear is not waterproof.
Full face helmets are required by law in Colombia.
This depends on which type of tour you are booked to join!
We normally stay in the best option available (Hotels, Guesthouses, Resorts and some of the nicest Boutique Hotels our private mansions) with focus on 4 main features: safety, cleaniness, great location and good service.
The tour price is based on sharing a room either as a couple or in two separate beds. Upgrades to single room is available on all tours.
Breakfast is usually served at the place where we overnight, if not the guide will arrange for breakfast elsewhere before we ride. Breakfast is always included.
Lunches, dinners and drinks are not included on any tour.
We always do about 1 hour lunch stop along the route and at night the guide will suggest a local restaurant where the group has the option of dinning together.
Vegetarian options are available most everywhere. Pescetarians will have good options for seafood and fish most everywhere. And meat lovers will be very happy!
This depends on which tour you are looking to join. Generally in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina there are no issues. We recommend you consult with your doctor rather than guessing. Be aware that some malaria medicine have bad side effects.
We very rarely see animals that could pose any danger to us.
The very first thing you need to do is contact Motolombia by tel. (2) 665 95 48 to inform and get guidance on what to do next.
If there are injuries authorities should be notified immediately. The mandatory insurance SOAT will cover injuries to 3rd party, rider and passenger.
Do not move the vehicles until the authorities have been notified and arrived on the scene. If the vehicles are moved before authorities have had an opportunity to make their evaluation this could affect how the insurance company will handle the incident.
If there is "only" property damage it is recommended that you attempt to make a deal on the spot with the involved parties and pay a reasonable amount for repairs to the 3rd party. Be aware that the insurances does not cover damage to 3rd party property.
If authorities arrive on the scene this could result in the vehicles being confiscated and fees for impounding, judges and lawyers could quickly become a lot. Be aware if you are at fault in such an incident motorcycle insurance will be a avoid and you will also be responsible for damages to the rental motorcycle. This is the case if you can not present an official police report.
We have divided our tours into 3 categories. Luxury All-Paved, Adventure All-Terrain and Expert Off-Roader.
Luxury All-Paved: usually means 90% of the route or more is sealed roads. These tours are ideal for riding two up and usually go to more touristic destinations and bigger cities with better infrastructure and accommodations. Occasional gravel drive ways, construction de-tours and small sections of hard packed gravel can occur. Hot shower and WiFi guaranteed.
Adventure All-Terrain: is more adventurous with between 30-50% of gravel, dirt and other type terrain. Experience with off-road is required and an adventurous spirit needed as the type routes we use are constantly changing. Accommodation is more simple in there rural destinations where infrastructure is limited and less tourist go, but we always stay in the best option available. Hot showers and Wifi available most nights.
Expert Off-Roader: this format is designed for expert off roaders who enjoy being off the beaten track with minimum 50% of the route on gravel, dirt, car tracks and everything else you can imagine. It is absolutely required that you are excellent at riding off-road and can handle long days in the saddle in all types of terrain, including riding on road. Accommodation is more basic at the rural destinations where infrastructure is limited. Hot water shower and WiFi access is not guaranteed.
