      About this trip

      Since 2015 Enrico of Hear the Road and Cat of Leod Escapes have partnered together to make this tour happen. It’s been a very popular tour and carefully refined year after year. Five days of riding the hidden curves of central Italy and three days riding our favorite European track. This year we are bringing someone special, YCRS Senior Instructor Eziah Davis will join the tour to help coach you on the twisty Italian roads. Passengers come along because while your rider is turning laps on Mugello, you can catch a taxi and see the wonders of Florence. You start and end in the eternal city of Rome. You’ll ride the back roads to Sienna. You’ll hit the same curves Ducati test riders do as you head over the mountains to Mugello. Three days on Mugello with two time WSBK champion Troy Corser riding a BMW S1000RR and you’ll understand why this is our favorite European circuit.  Take a rest day in Tuscany and then head over the mountains to Orvieto and stay at a wine resort. Finally we take the back roads back to Rome. All along the way you are guided to great local authentic places, curvy roads only the local riders know, outstanding food and great 3 and 4 star hotels. If you are a track rider and always wanted to visit Italy… this is the tour you want. This tour is more expensive because of the expense of Mugello but it is worth every penny. It's time to savor life and few destinations can do that like Italy.

      Day 1
      Welcome to Rome

      Your private car meets you at the airport and takes you to your hotel where you meet your guides. We advise a late morning arrival. You’ll pick up your street bike that afternoon, then attend the welcome briefing before heading off to a nice trattoria off the beaten path to get some REAL Roman cuisine. If you have time we advise you arrive a day or two early. Rome has been attracting visitors for over 2000 years and it makes a wonderful place to walk off your jet lag

Leod Escapes pioneered the concept of “Track & Tour” and each year we seek to add a new destination to keeps things fresh and exciting. Since we are located in the best place for motorcycle sport touring the USA we also do GPS self guided and custom tours in Northern California.


      For a rider like me, this was the trip of a lifetime. I am a 35+ year motorcycle rider, but have never ridden Europe before. In fact, I had never been outside the English-speaking world prior to this trip. This tour is the perfect introduction to international motorcycling. We traveled primarily in Germany and northern Italy and I was able to get by with English without any trouble, but picked up just enough German and Italian to feel a little more at home. While the point of this tour is to learn how to do it on your own, the tour guides are quick to help with anything you might need. The BMW motorcycles are excellent and extremely well maintained. The riding can be challenging, but is quite manageable for a rider with a few years experience, and an interest in improving their skills. Riding with folks with a similar mindset, I made some friendships that I will last for many years. I found the whole package to be excellent value for the money. If you are considering trying international moto-touring I can think of no better way to start.

      What a wild ride! This was a fantastic trip. Motorcycles really are the best way to see the world. This is a very sporting tour, possibly not for the interstate rider. I am certainly a better rider now and I thoroughly enjoyed the back country riding that we were guided through. Although this was the first run of Castles and Curves our guides were flexible and were able to overcome the problems faced (invisible flying cucumbers one might say). This was a genuine adventure and I loved it all!

      This trip was exceptional value for the money. This was my first international motorcycling trip and I can't think of a better introduction to motorcycle travel; I feel I now know enough to do this myself someday. The accommodations were great, especially the hotel in Italy. The routes were appropriately challenging for my skill level and I know I'm a better rider as a result. The bikes were well-maintained and the process of picking up and returning them was seamless. My ideal vacation. I highly recommend!

      Leod escapes provided a wonderful dolomite training tour from providing invaluable travel trips to the motorcycle rentals, - exciting routes to explore, and comfortable accommodations, exposure to great local food and sights. They gave us the training to be able to come back on our own but we would love to do another tour with them.
