Asian Motorcycle Adventures

The Gourmet Motorcycle Tour

Experience the ultimate in Thai and Asian cuisine.

 
On this 10-Day motorcycle tour we concentrate on the greatest and most famous dishes and restaurants that North Thailand has to offer.
 

You will experience everything worth tasting, all the local delicacies in the most local of eateries, eateries which no one knows about except us (and of course, the locals).
 

We will also get hands-on demonstrations of how everything is prepared from the chefs themselves.

The motorcycle riding on this tour will take a back seat to the food, so the riding will be easier, more on main roads, so your motorcycle riding skill level does not need to be as high as what we expect on our other road tours. Still, at least one-years experience riding a big bike is mandatory.
 

This Gourmet Motorcycle Tour is also a luxury tour and we will stay in some of the most comfortable of places in Northern Thailand.
 

So if you love Thai food in all its glorious varieties, you should seriously think about joining this tour.
There will be room in the support truck for non-motorcyclists who want to attend.
