MOTORCYCLE SAFE RIDING CONDITIONS
Motor Travel Inside wishes to maintain the highest standards of safety to ensure the well being of our guests. We therefore only ride the motorcycles in conditions where there is full visibility during daylight hours, and when vision is not impaired by heavy rain. Motorcycles may only be ridden from sunrise to sunset. Only in the case of a late arrival may motorcycles be ridden, and at reduced speed to reach the next destination. When rainfall occurs, speed must be reduced to a sensible, safe wet road surface handling speed based on the rider skill until the nearest shelter is reached. It is not allowed to use the motorcycle outside the touring itinerary. There will be only group riding.
Motor Travel Inside’s itineraries may change as we make improvements to our tours. Motor Travel Inside reserves the right to amend the tour route due to roadworks, weather conditions, or our new research information on routes. No refunds will be given due to any route change.
