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

Suresh Yeraballi
Lifetime experience riding across Rajasthan, India.

“Vintage Rides represented by Denise had tailormade a bike route in Rajasthan for four of us and I should say they have planned the trip so meticulously that everything went so seamlessly and gave us an experience of a lifetime, in terms of riding and the stay at some awesome places. They have mint condition bikes and an excellent team onboard, who are best in what they do and a note of thanks to the team leader Sid and support staff Ashraf, without whom the trip would have been incomplete. Cheers!”

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.”

Paul
Rajastahn - India - First Visit

“I embarked upon this adventure with only a vague idea of just how it would be but being aware that Vintage Rides is a French Company. The descriptions given in the advertising information outlined the itinerary but could only ever prime one for what was to become an adventure that surpassed by some distance my original expectations. For the most part the other riders and pillions were French and a more friendly group of people one could not expect to meet, we gelled very quickly and I being the only Englishman was very soon integrated. The tour leader Anuj and his ever smiling mechanic were terrific with their knowledge of just where to visit and what to do when things did not go according to a very flexible plan. We got to enjoy many place that were 'off the beaten track' as well as the more familiar sights and scenes. Even when the machines suffered damage from the poor surfaces and ravages of at times a challenging terrain they were not out of action for long. Stunning scenery and opulent Havelis added to what was a wonderful experience and a real taste of India. Memories that will linger for a lifetime and I know that for certain I will return to India to explore more of this fascinating land. Well done Vintage Rides.”
