2020 Group rides

New for 2020! I will be hosting 2 Group Rides during the summer. These are NOT tours! Rather, they’re for solo or small groups of riders who wish to travel with a larger group on a suggested route around the Rocky Mountains of Montana & Wyoming. I’ll be along for each 7 day ride, with room for 5 other participants, all of us on 2019 Royal Enfield Himalayans. If you have a group of 3 or more and would like to suggest additional dates, please Contact me. Please note that I cannot accommodate riders on their own bikes. These rides are for renters only.

Includes motorcycle rental and group ride fee. No additional fees for passengers.

ride details:

  • We’ll camp 3 nights, and motel/hotel 3 nights. Bring your camping gear or rent/purchase mine.

  • We’ll cover approx. 200-220 miles each day, with a combination of paved and gravel roads.

  • Additional costs, such as motels, food, fuel, National Park entrance fees, etc. are your responsibility (see below).

  • The ride starts / ends in Red Lodge, Montana. Please see my FAQ page for transportation options and airport info.

  • Departure time is at 2 PM on Saturday, returning 2 PM on the following Saturday.

  • Weather will generally be 70-80 degrees during the day. Expect some rain and cool nights.

    ESTIMATED COSTS:

  • Motels will be around $120 per night, per room. I’ll provide more details as dates get closer. I will share email addresses with the group (if permission is given), so riders can share rooms, if desired.

  • Fuel will average about $10 per day.

  • Campgrounds will be approx. $3 each per night.

  • National Park pass is $60 for all parks, or $80 for an annual pass.

 
 

the fine print:

 
  • 25% deposit is required to secure your spot on the group ride. Because spots are limited and I’m blocking out bikes from other reservations, deposits are non-refundable. 75% remaining balance is due 90 days prior to the ride. I will send you an invoice at that time.

  • I am not charging big tour fees for these rides. I am charging a small fee to reimburse my costs for the motorcycle, fuel, motels, food, etc.

  • Minimum of 4 riders are required for each Group Ride. If minimum is not met 14 days prior to ride, the Group Ride will be cancelled and any payments will be returned. You will then have the opportunity to rent motorcycles “a la carte” at my normal rental rates.

  • Credit card “hold” in the amount of $1,000 per motorcycle is mandatory to cover any damage that may occur. This will be processed upon motorcycle pickup.

  • Motorcycle license is required and must be presented upon motorcycle pickup.

  • Rental insurance, supplied by MBA Insurance is required. Cost is $15 per day. The deductible is $1,000. Insurance must be purchased no later than 5 days prior to bike pickup. Click HERE to purchase.

  • Must have experience riding a similar size and type as rental.
