Our fashion-icon tour leader has two long-standing passions: photography and The Bullet. But above all, he’s in love with India.

Rajasthan – a fascinating mixture of authentic villages, secret trails, majestic forts, palaces, unforgettable encounters and scenes of everyday life. Embrace an intensely new world – with surprises guaranteed too ! Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaipur… will leave you blinking at their sheer wealth of history and culture. A magical night under the stars in Thar Desert, then you continue to other climes. This rite-of-passage trip spanning more than 2,200km (1,370 miles) will take you as far as the Aravali Range, a wild green haven of peace. More than a motorbike trip, this is an intense and potent experience of India, and will leave an indelible impression.

The riders' opinions

Karl
A once in a lifetime experience!

“Made the 14 day Rajasthan rumble and it has been an amazing ride. We had breathtaking moments, crossing small villages and having chai teas with locals. Amazing hotels and sightseeing. If you a bike enthusiast and like exotic travels, you should do this trip. The guide and local staff managed it, not being a touristic thing.”

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.”

Johnny, Newbury (UK)
Excellent organisation

“Excellent organisation. I found everybody that I dealt with to be very professional and most helpful, both at the planning stage and during the trip. I'd definitely recommend Vintage, and will undoubtedly use them for any future trips I'm able to undertake.”
