"It's not about the destination - it's about the ride to get there"
Mac and Chris live in Blenheim at the top of the South Island, NZ. We personalise and book motorcycle & jeep tours in Vietnam, ATV and off road rides in Cambodia, trail bike rides in Laos and explore the Himalaya's using near new classic Royal Enfields. For Vietnam, Cambodia we are unlike other tour operators its YOU that decides when you want to go, how long for and who with. Laos is best in January each year and the Himalaya's July - September.
If you and your mates want a ride organised just for you or if you want to join a ride already planned - we can make all the arrangements - at no additional cost to you.
We partner with companies that are owned and operated by riders, Explore Indochina in Hanoi and OMG Himalaya in India. In Cambodia we work alongside Hidden Cambodia Dirt Bike Tours and have custom side tours of Cambodia's famous 'Killing Fields' and Ankor Wat temples outside Siem Reap. This enables us to make all your arrangements locally and our NZ travel agent sorts out getting you there and back.

Commonly Asked Questions What is your accommodation like? Our accommodation is a mix of homestay's and hotels, glamping, ex-palace's and tents in buddhist temple grounds.
(Vietnam & Laos) When is the WET season? In Indochina it is the 'wet season' somewhere most months of the year but we have so many options available to us that we are able to suggest a route where you're likely to stay dry for most if not all, of the ride! India doesn't really have one, and our rides in Laos are best in January.
(India) When are the roads open? Our India tours are very special. The roads are only open for a short window in the summer months - July and August. We plan for when the snow is still melting but the roads aren't so wet. We have tours for average to very experienced riders and we book up to a year in advance. Our Spiti - Ladhakh ride covers a section of one of the worlds most dangerous roads, while still giving the same experience with less butt clenching our Manali - Leh ride offers all you'd expect of the highest mountain range in the world!
Do I need a Motorcycle licence? Yes, your insurance will require you to have one. In Vietnam we ride smaller bikes (250cc) and a provisional licence will be fine for some rides others have some challenges but we can arrange a ride to suit. Off Road Laos - experienced off road riders only, India is for experienced riders only read the guides for each ride carefully and ask us if unsure.
