A week long trip to the Italian Alps to show you how to create your own EU riding adventures. If you want to explore the EU by motorcycle on your own but are a little nervous about how to go about it then this tour is for you. You'll learn about routing, rentals, what to pack, where to stay, how to eat, cultural barriers, cameras, traffic norms, and of course how to get by when you don't speak the language. You should be an intermediate to advanced skilled rider and who views obstacles as a chance for adventure. This event is created and run by 10 year tour operator veteran. Cat will step out of his role as a guide to be your teacher and engage you in some hands one real world training. Miss Emma from Motorcycles & Misfits podcast will join us and give you some valuable motorcycle mechanic tips as well. If you want to see the world on two wheels this is your first step.
Munich Airport is organized and efficient with lots of local services. Take a 45min train ride to your hotel or partner with another fellow rider and take a cab. This is the capital of the wealthy region of Bavaria, home to BMW, great beer and a fiercely good football team (soccer). If you have the time we encourage you to arrive a day or two early to walk/eat/drink off that jet lag before you ride. Your hotel is near all things motorcycle with plenty of gear shops. There's grocery, pharmacy and some restaurants nearby our hotel but most importantly it's next to a subway station so getting around Munich will be easy and cheap. In the afternoon attend the riders briefing and get your helmet com unit installed. Tonight join your teacher Cat MacLeod for a Döner or walk down to the local Beer Garden.
