MOTORCYCLE LICENSE AND INSURANCE: You must carry a valid motorcycle license at all times which has no restrictions pertaining to the motorcycles used on the tour or otherwise.
Riders supplying their own motorcycles are responsible for their own insurance requirements. Please check with your insurance to confirm that you have adequate coverage to operate your motorcycle Italy.
BRINGING YOUR OWN MOTORCYCLE: Your motorcycle must be in perfect mechanical condition. You will be responsible for your own maintenance and repairs. Carry whatever spare parts and tools you normally would use on a long enduro ride. Our local motorcycle shops can provide service if necessary.
Appropriate street legal off-road oriented tires and exhaust systems (please keep them quiet) are required. All lighting must be in working order on dual sport bikes. You are responsible for your own insurance requirements.
MEDICAL INSURANCE: Riders are responsible for their own life, medical and travel insurance.
RIDING GEAR: Due to the difficulty of sizing each person, insuring comfort and personal preferences, we cannot supply riding gear. However, we will help you arrange riding gear if necessary and our local motorcycle shops carry a good supply of riding equipment. You will be wearing your gear every day on long rides, conditions can range from hot, to cold, to wet, sometimes all in the same day. It is important that your gear fits well, can be worn in layers and carried with you on the bike. Good planning of your riding gear can greatly increase the enjoyment and safety of your trip.
We require that you wear a helmet, boots and a protective jacket. Bring what you would normally wear on a long enduro ride. We suggest a full coverage helmet with goggles or a face shield (bring cleaner and spare shields), sturdy boots (heavy duty motocross boots are recommended), protective leather riding jacket or enduro jacket, warm riding gloves (waterproof), light motocross style gloves and a good quality rain suit (we ride rain or shine!).
You are responsible for carrying appropriate warm clothes and rain gear for backcountry travel. A daypack and a fanny pack to carry your rain gear, camera, etc is recommended. You may also wish to bring a kidney belt, chest protector, pads, etc. Consider your own safety and comfort when choosing your riding gear.
