Georgia, Travel designer

An intrepid all-rounder, she has cruised India’s roads with many groups, and knows the country like the back of her leather-gloved hand.

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

A truly memorable trip

“A really fun, well organised ride that was designed to give us some riding excitement, a good look at some interesting parts of India and comfortable accommodation at the end of each day. Our tour leader was wonderful and clearly had in mind the well being of the riders. We had no problems with the bikes at all, but had a mechanic along just in case. Would I go again? Yes, very happily. Would I recommend it? Absolutely, but probably only to people who had some reasonable riding experience.”

I have just finished my second tour…

“I have just finished my second tour with Vintage Rides. I have just booked my third. I think this is testament to how much I value their service. From my initial enquiry, I found Vintage Rides to be very professional in all aspects of my travel plans. They were always helpful and happy to help with any additional tour arrangements. Whilst on tour their guides are fantastic and the support team are great. It really is a care free way to tackle a dream motorcycle tour. The Royal Enfield bikes are beautiful and quaint. They perform well and are totally suitable to the type of riding done on tour. I think I might buy an Enfield in the near future! I would not hesitate to recommend Vintage Rides to a person that wants to experience a motorcycle tour in an exotic location, without having to worry about anything.”

A wonderful and memorable experience

“A wonderful and memorable experience. The 12 day tour that my wife (pillion) and I went on in Madhya Pradesh was very well planned, with interesting and sometimes challenging rides and sight-seeing during the day and comfortable, culturally fascinating places to stay in at night. Our tour leader was experienced, organised, had a fun personality and managed to respond to each member of the tour as an individual. We highly recommend Vintage Rides to anyone with a sense of adventure and competent motorcycle skills. Laurie and Jennie McAdam”
