This is a unique adventure touring event involving the use of your personal motorcycle (contact us for rental options), ocean freighted from the USA to the Black Sea port of Batumi in the Republic of Georgia. The complexity of geopolitics in the region lends a special adventure character, with each of the four countries having distinctive cultures, fascinating and often colliding histories, language, cuisine, art, and religion. Participants must be experienced touring enthusiasts. This “mega” tour is suitable for single riders and couples. The motorcycle should be of the adventure dual purpose design, minimum 650 cc and prepared with an emphasis on reliability. Bike preparation will be greatly covered in pre-tour materials.
MotoDiscovery will manage round-trip ocean freighting (included in tour price), substantial guidance and information on bike preparations and facilitate the acquisition of visas and carnet documents for the motorcycles. Riders who have motorcycles in Europe and other locations outside the USA should inquire directly with regards to logistics of getting your motorcycle to the tour or discuss rental options. The tour will be supported and is another collaboration with our partner and friend, Kazim Uzunoglu of Istanbul. The intensive logistics and preparation requirements demand that reservations with deposits be received by no later than March 15, 2019.
To preserve quality service there will be a maximum of 12 and a minimum of 8 motorcycles plus staff on this tour.
