If you’ve already journeyed hundreds of miles through the jewels of Rajasthan, the tea plantations of Kerala, and the unforgettable trails of Ladakh… then dare to take a motorbike trip in the heart of India: Madhya Pradesh. Some of the country’s most beautiful temples and palaces, national parks with abundant wildlife, authentic and spontaneous encounters, sublime little roads, and delightful hotels. You’ll only ride in the morning, to really soak up the places en route. Make haste for the land of Rudyard Kipling, and you’ll better understand why this immensely mysterious and beguiling region inspired the famous Jungle Book.

The riders' opinions

GregoryEvans
Wonderful experience with great company

“My group of 12 friends had a wonderful experience riding in the Himalayas with Vintage Rides. From the fantastic Pierrey our tour guide to the work done by the backroom staff to ensure this unique experience went without a hitch, this a very experienced and highly recommended company to put your trust in for such a journey. Will definitely use them again at some time in the future - perhaps Mongolia.”

Mark
Absolute adventure

“This trip is managed from start to finish to provide the participant with a stress free experience. The bikes were amazing and the crew was even better making a trouble free journey. Vintage Rides gives you the opportunity of a life time with a guide who provides guided autonomy. Thank you Vintage Rides for an experience I will never forget for all the right reasons.”

Todd
Best trip. Ever.

“Excellent, almost effortless trip. We were looked after well. The route was a wonderful combination of easy riding and modest challenge. The staff was tolerant beyond any reasonable human's capacity. Lodgings both exotic and comfortable. A better trip can not be imagined.”
