As the Snow in the passes of the High Atlas thaw, and Just before the Sahara gets hotter than hell, we are getting ready for a Spring run of the Morocco Adventure. Departing from Malaga Spain, this 11 day, 2400Km ride ticks off the best Morocco has to offer. From the Kasbahs and the Medinas to the Berber villages in the Atlas, and Tuareg tribes in the Sahara. We still have last seats on this spring ride and the Autumn ride is filling fast.

There’s nothing quite like taking to the open road on the back of a motorbike, feeling the wind rush past you as you see some of the world’s most magnificent sights. There are two key elements you need to decide on before you take on a motorcycle tour; the bike and the destination. With this in mind, here are five of the best destinations for motorcycle tours.

Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego

Of course, we need to kick off the list with Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, situated in both Chile and Argentina. Every year, TAMARBIKES heads off on a stunning adventure around this part of South America, ending on the longest day of the year here, the 21st December. During this tour, you can expect to criss-cross through the two countries several times, crossing borders and taking in the sights of the Andes which cuts the countries down the middle. There’s a reason we call these adventures “a ride of a life.” It’s a definite must-add to the bucket list.

The Chiang Rai Loop

Head to Thailand and take on the Chiang Rai Loop, which takes you through highlights such as the Mae Sa Elephant Camp, Wat Rong Khun, Chiang Dao Cave, and the Golden Triangle, where Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand all meet in the middle. This is one of the most scenic routes in the whole of the country, packed full of twisty roads that make it ideal for a motorcycle tour. It’s worth noting that travel insurance is a legal requirement in Thailand, as is an international driving permit, so make sure you have all of the right paperwork before you set off.

The Great Ocean Road

Both Australia and New Zealand are bikers’ dreams, thanks to miles of open road and captivating landscapes. However, only one could make it onto this list, and it’s a relatively short one. The Great Ocean Road is a mere 290 km, making it a one-day ride from Melbourne to Peterborough in Australia. What it lacks in length, however, it makes up for in scenery. You’ll ride across the shoreline rainforest, with glimpses of stunning surfing beaches and the Shipwreck Coast.

cape-town.jpg?resize=748%2C421&ssl=1

Cape Town Circuit

Cape Town in South Africa is an adventure-lovers paradise, so it makes sense that it’s also the ideal spot for a motorcycle tour. You can spend a couple of weeks on the Cape Town Circuit, which spans 1,690 km, and takes you through Addo National Park where you’ll be able to spot some of the Big Five. This route will also take you through the famous Winelands, so you’ll be able to stop off for a day (or two) and sample some of the wines on offer.

Pacific Coast Highway

It’s hard to pick just one place for a motorcycle tour in the U.S., as this is the home of the road trip. You could take on California and the American West, including dipping into Route 66 or opt for the Twisted Sisters loop in Texas. However, we couldn’t leave the Pacific Coast Highway route off our list. You’ll ride through the quaint fishing town of Monterey, catch a glimpse of the beautiful Big Sur, and even stop off in San Francisco for a day or two. This is definitely worth a trip on the back of your bike!

It was so hard to whittle this down to just five destinations, as there are so many incredible places in the world for motorcycle tours. Now you just have to pick which one you want to visit first. Any others to add to the list? Drop them in the comments below.

The TAMARBIKES Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego adventure was even more so this year. The tour ended, as scheduled, smack on the Longest day of the year, December 21st, the first day of summer here, in the southern hemisphere, however, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, reminded us, how harsh the elements can be here no matter what time of year. A reminder that if you really want to ride these remote beautiful parts of the world in safety you better be doing it with professionals, support and local contacts to help you through the challenges.

The People

 On the TAMARBIKES adventures the magic usually happens on the second or third day. People warm up to each other, find their place in the group and in the riding, and have already had a night cap of 2 together. This time things came much earlier. A great bunch from USA, Canada, GB, Chile, with guides from Israel and Germany all came together to create a balanced funny and great riding groups. Besides having 2 couples on tour, which always makes for abetter mood of the tour, we had a serious adventurer that came down solo on a BMW R100GS from the US had done a major part of south America and decided to join our group after arriving in Chile. We also had a Pillion join solo, a first for us but a gamble that panned out very well, as this local Chilean helped light up the already great atmosphere and fitted right in with the gang.

The Territory

Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego are shared geographical areas in the most southern part of South America and, actually, are the most southern parts of inhabited land in the world. Tierra del Fuego although an archipelago of island separated by the notorious Magellan straits, is still part of the south American plate so considered part of the continent. These 2 territories are shared by 2 countries Chile and Argentina.

IMAGE-PATAGONIA-2.jpg?resize=748%2C499&s
The ‘Horns of the bull’ in the Torres del Paine national park Chile

Patagonia is severed down the middle by the Andes mountain range which also, for the most part, marks the border between Chile and Argentina. On the TAMARBIKES Patagonia adventure we Criss Cross between these 2countries no less than 6 times making the most of both these very different terrains. As we are riding the western part of the continent the more dominant of the 2 oceans for much of the ride is the Pacific Ocean. Clouds come in from the west making the western valleys and slopes of the Andes (The Chilean side)lush, green, rich in fauna and flora, some indigenous to these parts.  It also makes for great agriculture and our tour begins in Osorno a hub of agriculture and meat and dairy farms.

IMG_0073.jpg?resize=748%2C499&ssl=1The Osorno Volcano one of the first sites on the Patagonia Adventure

This area is also a part of the pacific fire ring so beside this amazing green back drop you also get snow caped volcanoes decorating the landscape for extra beauty and a stronger effect.

Last but not least, Snow falls on the tops of the Andes 365days a year. This constant fall of layer upon layer for millions of years creates the largest glacier field outside of the poles. Another amazing natural phenomenon to add to the appeal and attraction of this harsh land.

Population

Patagonia was inhabited in the past by local tribes, but these did not survive the invasion of the Spanish and Portuguese in the 16thand 17th centuries. Today it is very scarcely populated with small villages towns and maybe 2 or 3 medium sized cities which could develop on the hilean side after the Carretera Austral, the famous road opened by Pinochet,was opened in the 70s of the 20thcentury.  The Argentinian side is called the Pampas the endless wilderness of flat dry low grass lands with vast sheep farms Estancias and hundreds of miles of the famous Argentinian highway 40. On Tierra del Fuego it’s the Argentinian side that is better populated including the ‘crown jewel, the city of Ushuaia the most southern city on earth perched on the Begal Channel. This city is also a major exit point for excursions to Antarctica.

The ride

This 4300 Km Adventure takes us from the heart of civilization in the north Osorno and Bariloche right down to the End of the World – ‘Fin-del-Mundo’ – as the locals call it. Roads begin as excellent asphalt but quickly turn to relatively good gravel while riding the Carretera Austral, which is only partly paved. Once we are out on highway 40 there are parts that are still unpaved there it is loose gravel which ca be challenging at times. Once south of El Calafate we are mostly on paved road with the exception of the Torres del Paine park. The challenge becomes when the winds pickup and boy do they blow. With gusts of 90Km/h it calls for technique and poise to ride through these winds. We stopped and took a very long 4 hour lunch break on our second day on Tierra del Fuego to let the winds calm down before we continued to Ushuaia.

25.jpg?resize=748%2C299&ssl=1Gravel is the spice of the day on most of this adventure.

The Experience

This ride is a moment to live for. The sense of achievement together with a group you now call your friends is second to little hi points of tours around the world. People dream of this moment plan it a life time just to be able to tick it off their respective bucket lists. But this high point does not belittle the rest of the ride or any of the world known attractions on the way; The Perito Moreno glacier is certainly up there, as well as the Torres del Paine national park one of the best in the world, just to name a few. The TAMARBIKES team strives to give the most rich, enjoyable and safe way possible while employing professionals using welcoming and warm accommodations handing you a pleasant surprise day after day.

Ushuaia_group.jpg?resize=748%2C561&ssl=1Finally the gates of Ushuaia the most southern city on earth – “Fin del Mundo”

As usual we promise each ride of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego will be “A ride of a Life”.

South means cold

The TAMARBIKES Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Adventure begins in Osorno Chile, 40 degrees south and runs all the way down to Ushuaia Argentina, that at 54 degree south is the most southern city on earth! these facts coupled dictate both somewhat extreme weather conditions year round, and a very limited season of about 3 and half months – November to March, the summer of the southern hemisphere.

I was a warm summer afternoon a few weeks back when I received a call from the Yamaha Israel sales manager Yotam. “Have you heard of the Niken?” he asked. “Sure” I said “why?” “Well we’re launching it in Israel and we wanted you to come do a test ride tell us what you think.” Truth be said I had never ridden a trike before let alone a sports trike, so I jumped at the opportunity. someone also mentioned a free lunch so who could resist.

4.pngThe growling beast

Off to the mountains

on the designated sunny afternoon I set off towards Jerusalem. Its a cool 120km, from my office in the north of Israel, but my Super Tenere just loves when clock the long hauls on it so no sweat. Almost. I arrived at the Cramim (vineyards in Hebrew) Hotel around 14:00 which was the designated time for our 30 minute ride on it. A refreshment, some signatures, a short briefing (It’s a MT-09 with 2 wheels in the front) , and we’re off.

7.pngWelcome to the Cramim Hotel

The Ride

I through my leg over, straitened it off the stand – you need to hold it like a bike – and took a look at the dashboard. It’s huge, wide, and very plush, giving you a sense of something very expensive and luxurious. Nice displays, a  good on-board computer all the functionality you can hope for and the Yamaha 900 triple growling from underneath.

2.pngThe Niken Cockpit

Every thing is very much Mt-09 in its feeling as we launch off, and I’m waiting to get going so that I can see what this funny front end is really about. After a few curves the Niken feels positively easy and I am finding it very conventional in its behavior.  Once we are on the High way its sure footedness comes in handy and acceleration is smooth as it is rapid. Its only a short ride on the Highway when we break off to the mountain twisty lanes. Here few things become apparent: The extra rubber can be used for running extra speed into corners, which otherwise we may have not taken. Here is where things get a little interesting, While grip is better through corners, counter steering is less pronounced (due to the smaller wheels probably) which in turn causes you to turn with the need for a more sure kind of a shove to the handlebars. Another dynamic phenomenon I found is the ability of the Niken to hold a line in a corner and react to throttle changes. I felt I needed to hold the bar to keep the line unlike MY Super Tenere where once a I’ve set the lean it will hold the line as long as you hold the throttle at its current position.

Riding back

3.pngWhat a head turner 3 Nikens

Riding back we try the grip at a hard stop and get excellent results including a dual ABS up front, I also ride over road bumps at a relatively high speed and got great results in terms of damping the bumps.we head back to the hotel for another drink, a very good finger-food lunch, and some motorcycling mingling and talk over this new innovative motorcycle.

6.pngBeautiful surroundings for a motorcycle launch.

So what the hell is it?

Well if its not a bird and its not a plane then it must be superman. This is something new, refreshing, out of box. Just as we like it. It seems less demanding than a motorcycle. this may be a call for heavy scooters to take the next step toward motorcycling through the Niken. The luxury ad comfort it brings with it and the extra grip, may also appeal to the end of the road cyclist, an extend his riding days for another 5 years that maybe without the Niken would not hold. Last but not least if you are a scooter man and want something like it but manual and very powerful maybe this could be it. All in all its a brilliant piece of machinery that only time will tell if it will cut itself a little niche of the motorcycle market.

23.pngThe Expedition at the Ushuaia port famous landmark

Preface

When we started TAMARBIKES, 4 years ago, it was one of our life’s dreams to reach South America, and especially, Ushuaia the most southern city on earth. Consequently, when I finally reached with our first Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Adventure, it was a threefold success for us: 1. We had reached the End of the earth Ushuaia and made one dream come true; 2. We came leading a tour with 8 other riders, making us one of the few touring companies that go to the end of the earth, and; 3. This was also the end to a year where we were on 4 continents in one year Asia (Himalaya Adventure). Europe, Africa (Africa Expedition & Morocco, and South America.

15-1.pngOsorno – 1000Km south of Santiago de chile

Arrival

Our tour begins in Osorno Chile, a medium sized town in the middle of the agricultural hub of Chile. “They sell here milk and meat”, told me our driver on the way from the Airport into town we see cows laying in the meadows all very beautiful well kept and cared for with a very strong feeling of France or Switzerland, but on second look it is more beautiful. Its spring time here the air is crisp, and the back drop is snow-capped volcanoes all around and tomorrow pristine alpine lakes of amazing beauty. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Arrival day is always about welcome, getting acquainted, having a first briefing and having the traditional welcome festive dinner and off to an early night to sleep away the Jet lag. And get ready to the long and challenging ride to el Fin del Mundo.

25-1.pngBriefings and Instructions – Making a perfect tour better.

11-1.pngOn the way to Bariloche

Leg 1 – The lake district

Our first days of the tour are relatively easy we cross to Argentina and back to Chile the next day and roll round some breathtaking views some great asphalt as well as a little gravel to make thing interesting. Rumbling rivers amazing flowers lakes and Bariloche the St Moritz of Argentina all make for a fabulous warm up for the road ahead. We still don know what the fuss was about as things are still easy and we are all still very fresh on the bikes.

9-1.pngThe Lake district

13-1.pngThe colors on the way down

Leg 2 – The Carratera Austral

Day 4 begins with a roll down from Futalefu through the mountains down towards our second chapter – the Carratera Austral – This Mega project of the Generalissimo Pinochet the head of the military Coup that headed a military regime over Chile during the 70 and 80s. For many years there was no real land connection between central Chile and the southern region of Patagonia which is very lightly populated. Transportation was based on a 3-day ferry ride up to Poerto Montt, or simply crossing to Argentina and riding up the Quarenta, Highway 40 that crosses Argentina from north to south.

20-1.pngTha Carratera Austral

The Carratera Austral is still not paved its full length so you can find yourself winding through tricky curves climbing steep inclines on gravel. If you happen to hit some rain, which is not unlikely, you may be riding on some tricky muddy or slippery surfaces so bare this in mind. As we work our way south, villages become smaller and more picturesque. We find German villages (Puyuhapy), and beside one regional town of Coyhaique, its wilderness and small villages right the way down. The Chileans call HW 7, The Caraterra Austral the road to the end of the world however it only reaches the end of the Chilean world. We however will take this task a little more seriously when we cross to Argentina for our third Leg across the planes of Argentina through its Estancias and very long roads (1 specific one – AR40) continuing our voyage southbound.

26-1.pngA selfie over the valley with the guys

10-1.pngAmazing riding

Leg 3 – Glaciers and granite massifs.

We start the third Leg of our ride when we leave the Carratera Austral and cross over to Argentina once again. The remainder of the day and the next day are all about getting some serious miles under our belt and we are going to break for the night at a genuine Estancia (farm house) where the gauchos (Cowboys) will prepare for us a real Argentinian BBQ. Food is fabulous, we drink ourselves silly with local beer and wine and were off to our beds which are in large rooms of a number of beds (3-4) in each for a cozy but intensive sleep after a long ride. Next day we are on our way to El Calafate, The Mecca of trekkers and our rest day destination.

6-1.pngThe Perito Moreno

El Calafate is a typical trekkers town with lots of hotels of all levels, god restaurants if you know where to go, a souvenirs market, and much more. We rest get some laundry arranged for all – after 9 days – and get ready for the Perito Moreno – the famous collapsing glacier that keeps this town alive among others. The well-known trek of Mt Fitz Roy is also less than a day’s ride away as well as our next stop. We opt for a van instead of riding the next morning leaving the bikes behind which is a good decision. It’s a short ride to the Glacier and then a couple of hours of the best nature scenery and photography and areal show by mother nature crackling and collapsing into the lake with a thundering roll ever so often. Amazing!

Next day we are back on the bikes and heading to, yet another top of the world nature reserves this time on the Chilean side. Torres del Paine is undoubtedly one of the most amazing nature reserves in the world. It built for trekking and also has a Luxury flare to it with in park luxury hotels however we are riding through it. A prehistoric giant bear, and the huge and magnificent granite mountains creating a postcard like picture from almost any lookout you stop to take in the view. It’s a great easy gravel riding and a fabulous way to get some of the best nature pictures possible.

Leg 4 – Tierra-del-Fuego and Fin-del-Mundo

This is our Final Leg. It will take us 2 days to reach Ushuaia as we stop in Cerro Sombrero before we cross again to Argentina. This allows for some time for the ferry over the Magellan straits, something which can be tricky, and very prone to weather and tides, as we would find out the hard ways on our way back. So, we ride by the turnoff to the southern port of Puerto Natales on our way to the Tierra del Fuego Island. The ferry is bumpy but it’s a 15 minute run across these straits at their slimmest part of the “waist” and then another hour to the Cerro Sombrero village and Hotel.

Nest day its an early start and we are on our way to the end of the earth. When the wind picks up we find ourselves riding at ridiculous angels while riding in a straight line. However, once we get the hang of it its actually fun. Another challenging situation we get to master on this tour. Ushuaia welcomes us with its famous gates 2 columns bearing the name of the city which creates a photo op and an opportunity to hug and pat each other’s egos for a job well done. Tomorrow is a day for rest and reflection, some excursions are available to us too. We take the last morning in Ushuaia to really hit h end of AR3 right to the end of the road and tour around the Tierra del Fuego national park. Then its off back north we will stay at Rio Grande tonight just to break the ride and Finish in Punta Arenas the next day.

Departures and goodbyes

The Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego adventure brings with it a real sense of accomplishment. Reaching the most southern city on earth is considered by many an adventurer a ‘must do’ for their adventure list. For my first time it was as exciting as imagined it would be. I’m going to hazard a guess that coming back this year will be different. However this ride is certainly up there with my very favorites in the world. The Patagonia Adventure encompasses so much of what we love about Adventure riding.
Don’t miss out on it.

For an SMB paving it way in the oceans of international motorcycle touring marketing this question has been out hovering out there since day one. While branding, reputation and client awareness take time and money, finding the right established partners can be for some, the difference between survival or even success, and failure.

While ‘on Line’ has clear and apparent advantages to a young touring SMB. It is at a very low ticket to create your initial presence and have to potential to reach the full potential of the market worldwide. You can create a maintain an image with limited resources.  And you can build a niche business without being afraid of lack of potential clients.

Alternatively, referrals from tour agents can give you the much-needed credibility and professional image once you have convinced the agent of your ability to provide quality dependable services. However, the remains the need to convince such agent of such abilities a task that may be a hard task if the agent is doing his job properly.

While contemplating these dilemmas I am wondering if this is not the real challenge that travel agents are facing these days. Where can they find their added value to remain relevant for both tour providers and tourists alike in a ever diminishing market being dominated by online.

Over the years I have found that the smaller the niche the less likely you are to find a specialized agent able to properly address your niche market. The agent tries to cater to the largest clientele he can acquire and thus does not target inherently specific specialized niches. Moreover, selling a niche product requires expertise and understanding of the activity in order to sell its intricacies.

Going back to motorcycle guided tours and adventures I have that there very few agencies who have branded themselves and tat have the ability to send Motorcycle guided tours. These are usually the exception and not the general rule and many a time they will become an agent for one of the large companies in the market forgoing the ability to work with any other company.

Lately a new kind of player is arising in these touring products marketing arenas. Portals, or online agencies that pride themselves about working with everyone. These “online agencies” attract on line traffic that enables them to come up high or first on search engines and thus by cooperating with them a niche touring SMB can bring himself to the front of the line with a commission-based fee only. However, you are packed I with the crowd, so it will be hard to impossible to rise above unless you are paying to be promoted.  Another issue is that the “big boys” don’t use these portals thus you will be branded small fish by the mere registration to one of these portals.

There are 3 important conclusions I would like to stress: 1. New SMB while may use agencies or portals as the case may be on there way to establishment, must consider on line marketing as a core competence of their business and rapidly develop their own digital assets and image on the way to success; 2. Travel agencies who have been losing ground to the digital marketing arena must develop specialties and focused markets where there marketing power and prestige is an asset for SMB touring companies either in their initial stages or even further on when a relation has been established and the agent can create volume for the SMB; 3. There is a new kind of travel agency on the horizon – the specialized focused portal. If you are an agency at war with declining business maybe this is your solution for survival.

Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego – some of the most sought after destinations in the world

Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, beside harboring some of the most exquisite natural gems of our planet’ Like the Torres del Paine national park in Chile and the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina, fires up adventurers imagination for it being literally the road to ‘The End of The World’.

IMAGE-PATAGONIA-4.jpgTAMARBIKES on the road to the end of the world – the Carratera Austral

South means cold

The TAMARBIKES Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Adventure begins in Osorno Chile, 40 degrees south and runs all the way down to Ushuaia Argentina, that at 54 degree south is the most southern city on earth! these facts coupled dictate both somewhat extreme weather conditions year round, and a very limited season of about 3 and half months – November to March, the summer of the southern hemisphere.

The Invitation

I was a warm summer afternoon a few weeks back when I received a call from the Yamaha Israel sales manager Yotam. “Have you heard of the Niken?” he asked. “Sure” I said “why?” “Well we’re launching it in Israel and we wanted you to come do a test ride tell us what you think.” Truth be said I had never ridden a trike before let alone a sports trike, so I jumped at the opportunity. someone also mentioned a free lunch so who could resist.

4.pngThe growling beast

Off to the mountains

on the designated sunny afternoon I set off towards Jerusalem. Its a cool 120km, from my office in the north of Israel, but my Super Tenere just loves when clock the long hauls on it so no sweat. Almost. I arrived at the Cramim (vineyards in Hebrew) Hotel around 14:00 which was the designated time for our 30 minute ride on it. A refreshment, some signatures, a short briefing (It’s a MT-09 with 2 wheels in the front) , and we’re off.

7.pngWelcome to the Cramim Hotel

The Ride

I through my leg over, straitened it off the stand – you need to hold it like a bike – and took a look at the dashboard. It’s huge, wide, and very plush, giving you a sense of something very expensive and luxurious. Nice displays, a  good on-board computer all the functionality you can hope for and the Yamaha 900 triple growling from underneath.

2.pngThe Niken Cockpit

Every thing is very much Mt-09 in its feeling as we launch off, and I’m waiting to get going so that I can see what this funny front end is really about. After a few curves the Niken feels positively easy and I am finding it very conventional in its behavior.  Once we are on the High way its sure footedness comes in handy and acceleration is smooth as it is rapid. Its only a short ride on the Highway when we break off to the mountain twisty lanes. Here few things become apparent: The extra rubber can be used for running extra speed into corners, which otherwise we may have not taken. Here is where things get a little interesting, While grip is better through corners, counter steering is less pronounced (due to the smaller wheels probably) which in turn causes you to turn with the need for a more sure kind of a shove to the handlebars. Another dynamic phenomenon I found is the ability of the Niken to hold a line in a corner and react to throttle changes. I felt I needed to hold the bar to keep the line unlike MY Super Tenere where once a I’ve set the lean it will hold the line as long as you hold the throttle at its current position.

Riding back

3.pngWhat a head turner 3 Nikens

Riding back we try the grip at a hard stop and get excellent results including a dual ABS up front, I also ride over road bumps at a relatively high speed and got great results in terms of damping the bumps.we head back to the hotel for another drink, a very good finger-food lunch, and some motorcycling mingling and talk over this new innovative motorcycle.

6.pngBeautiful surroundings for a motorcycle launch.

So what the hell is it?

Well if its not a bird and its not a plane then it must be superman. This is something new, refreshing, out of box. Just as we like it. It seems less demanding than a motorcycle. this may be a call for heavy scooters to take the next step toward motorcycling through the Niken. The luxury ad comfort it brings with it and the extra grip, may also appeal to the end of the road cyclist, an extend his riding days for another 5 years that maybe without the Niken would not hold. Last but not least if you are a scooter man and want something like it but manual and very powerful maybe this could be it. All in all its a brilliant piece of machinery that only time will tell if it will cut itself a little niche of the motorcycle market.

23.pngThe Expedition at the Ushuaia port famous landmark

Preface

When we started TAMARBIKES, 4 years ago, it was one of our life’s dreams to reach South America, and especially, Ushuaia the most southern city on earth. Consequently, when I finally reached with our first Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Adventure, it was a threefold success for us: 1. We had reached the End of the earth Ushuaia and made one dream come true; 2. We came leading a tour with 8 other riders, making us one of the few touring companies that go to the end of the earth, and; 3. This was also the end to a year where we were on 4 continents in one year Asia (Himalaya Adventure). Europe, Africa (Africa Expedition & Morocco, and South America.

15-1.pngOsorno – 1000Km south of Santiago de chile

Arrival

Our tour begins in Osorno Chile, a medium sized town in the middle of the agricultural hub of Chile. “They sell here milk and meat”, told me our driver on the way from the Airport into town we see cows laying in the meadows all very beautiful well kept and cared for with a very strong feeling of France or Switzerland, but on second look it is more beautiful. Its spring time here the air is crisp, and the back drop is snow-capped volcanoes all around and tomorrow pristine alpine lakes of amazing beauty. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Arrival day is always about welcome, getting acquainted, having a first briefing and having the traditional welcome festive dinner and off to an early night to sleep away the Jet lag. And get ready to the long and challenging ride to el Fin del Mundo.

25-1.pngBriefings and Instructions – Making a perfect tour better.

11-1.pngOn the way to Bariloche

Leg 1 – The lake district

Our first days of the tour are relatively easy we cross to Argentina and back to Chile the next day and roll round some breathtaking views some great asphalt as well as a little gravel to make thing interesting. Rumbling rivers amazing flowers lakes and Bariloche the St Moritz of Argentina all make for a fabulous warm up for the road ahead. We still don know what the fuss was about as things are still easy and we are all still very fresh on the bikes.

9-1.pngThe Lake district

13-1.pngThe colors on the way down

Leg 2 – The Carratera Austral

Day 4 begins with a roll down from Futalefu through the mountains down towards our second chapter – the Carratera Austral – This Mega project of the Generalissimo Pinochet the head of the military Coup that headed a military regime over Chile during the 70 and 80s. For many years there was no real land connection between central Chile and the southern region of Patagonia which is very lightly populated. Transportation was based on a 3-day ferry ride up to Poerto Montt, or simply crossing to Argentina and riding up the Quarenta, Highway 40 that crosses Argentina from north to south.

20-1.pngTha Carratera Austral

The Carratera Austral is still not paved its full length so you can find yourself winding through tricky curves climbing steep inclines on gravel. If you happen to hit some rain, which is not unlikely, you may be riding on some tricky muddy or slippery surfaces so bare this in mind. As we work our way south, villages become smaller and more picturesque. We find German villages (Puyuhapy), and beside one regional town of Coyhaique, its wilderness and small villages right the way down. The Chileans call HW 7, The Caraterra Austral the road to the end of the world however it only reaches the end of the Chilean world. We however will take this task a little more seriously when we cross to Argentina for our third Leg across the planes of Argentina through its Estancias and very long roads (1 specific one – AR40) continuing our voyage southbound.

26-1.pngA selfie over the valley with the guys

10-1.pngAmazing riding

Leg 3 – Glaciers and granite massifs.

We start the third Leg of our ride when we leave the Carratera Austral and cross over to Argentina once again. The remainder of the day and the next day are all about getting some serious miles under our belt and we are going to break for the night at a genuine Estancia (farm house) where the gauchos (Cowboys) will prepare for us a real Argentinian BBQ. Food is fabulous, we drink ourselves silly with local beer and wine and were off to our beds which are in large rooms of a number of beds (3-4) in each for a cozy but intensive sleep after a long ride. Next day we are on our way to El Calafate, The Mecca of trekkers and our rest day destination.

6-1.pngThe Perito Moreno

El Calafate is a typical trekkers town with lots of hotels of all levels, god restaurants if you know where to go, a souvenirs market, and much more. We rest get some laundry arranged for all – after 9 days – and get ready for the Perito Moreno – the famous collapsing glacier that keeps this town alive among others.

An Israel Classic on demand

Going on tour in your home country Israel is always a treat for us, so naturally when Carlos my pal called to say he wanted to do a pre-tour run I was more than happy to accommodate him. Carlos only has 4 days for us to do a 9-day Israel Classic tour but a he agrees, we will cram things in. So, we set a course that will take in most of the major attractions knowing we may need to leave some out on the way, but for sure will have some very long days.

17.pngPre-Tour Planning

Carlos came through the southern border crossing between Aqaba and Eilat. This is the southernmost tip of Israel, so I had to get down there to meet him with 2 bikes. The TAMARBIKES Logistics took care of the new 2018 Matt Black Super Tenere XT1200ZE for Carlos and it was trucked down to Eilat. I decided to ride down on my 2017 Grey and Blue Super Tenere XT1200ZE. Zikhron Yaakov, my home, is a small village on mount Carmel, a 413 KM ride to Eilat. I set out Tuesday afternoon for the ride. The ST did this with relative ease and comfort even with a full load of luggage for the week ahead. I rolled in to Eilat just before 19:00. Met a friend for dinner and packed it in early to get ready for the long couple of days ahead.

Israel motorcycle tourGetting ready to leave

Day 1 – Eilat – To Jerusalem 500km

There is a big desert north of Eilat – The Negev. Its an amazing beautiful and full of ‘surprises’ if you know where you are going. Geology, archaeology, culture and great riding are all part of its characteristics. Carlos came across the border (the first) from Jordan a little after 09:00 and after a short briefing, packing the bikes and getting our first hydration for the day we headed south and west up into the Eilat granite mountains running up right next to Egyptian Border (The second). These granite rocks are the backdrop to Eilat creating a dramatic effect of a town nestled between mountain and sea, in this case the turquoise Red Sea.

15.pngIt’s a climb from sea level to the Ovda plateau at 500 meters elevation. Roads roll from side to side and you are sure that the middle of the tire is getting very little use. Once on the Plateau things level out and roads straightened out and become longer yet a little cooler (only 36 degrees!). Once past the 75km marker, we are heading back down into the Syria -Africa rift and temperatures sore to 42 when we stop for our fist break at 101 km station.

motorcycle tour israelRider over looking the Sinai desert.

The second stage of the day is about the great crater (aka Yeruham crater) and the Scorpions Ascent. The Ascent is part of the old abandoned road from Tel Aviv to Eilat and was opened in the fifties by the engineer’s corps. We arrived to find it partially washed away by the recent flash floods, but no real challenge for the Super Teneres. Up on the pegs and off we went. This series of switchbacks overlooking breath-taking views is only the first course before entering a small canyon and finding yourself on the floor of the Great Crater. This is an erosion crater which makes it unique to this part of the world and ‘jam packed’ with geological phenomena. But it’s the road and outlook at the top that set the tone for the day and wrap up the ride through this amazing desert.

24.pngLunch in Arad’s famous Muza bikers stop restaurant with its great burgers and cold lemonade, and we have more than half behind us and its only 14:00. After lunch we are pushing north. Scenery changes dramatically as we head to inner plains with their green crops and low hills. Temperatures are cooler, and bikes are running on great deserted tarmac at high speeds. Carlos and I are getting to learn each other’s riding style and feeling more confident. He is a well-seasoned adventure rider so there is nothing I can throw at him that he can’t easily take.

IMG_8060-4-e1528322301170.jpgriding the twisties up to Jerusalem

Last leg of the day is the climb up the Judean hills into Jerusalem. I choose the back roads that will take us in from what I know to be some of the best riding roads. These are, and we end the day with a wide grin on our faces inside the helmets as we approach the most fascinating city on earth.

14.pngAfter the mandatory shower we venture out to the Mahane Yehuda market for the famous authentic Jerusalem Mixed Grill. At 22:00 we are in bed and fast asleep after a very challenging day.

7.pngDay 2  – Jerusalem  – Kibutz  Senir – 320km

We spend the first part of the day walking the Old City of Jerusalem. For me it is a first experience every time and I lose myself between the people, the alleys, the markets and the holy sites.  Getting a first-time visitor to grasp the intensity of this epicenter of religion and history is always a fascinating challenge and with Carlos its no exception. It’s a spiritual as well as a sensual experience even to non-religious person. One finally gets it – This is where it all begun.

17.pngWe explore Mt. Zion, home to the room of the Last Supper, King David’s tomb, the Western Wall. Then we go to the The Temple Mount with the Mosque of Omar and El Aqsa on it, and then through the Via Dolorosa right up to the Holy Sepulchre. These mega sites all get crammed in to a 4-hour walk. Truth be said this really needs 3 days to get it right, but as we say ‘sunlight is diminishing’ and we still have a small country to cross.

18.pngSo, we head back to the hotel checkout and head out. We’re taking the central toll road #6 highway going north. Within an hour we are north taking a sandwich at the service station. Then the amazing Gilboa view road with its birds-eye view of the Jezreel Valley, down the twisty 6666 to Beit Shean and from there up onto the Golan hs to the Peace look out, one of the most amazing spots overlooking the Sea of Galilee. We get some great footage on these twisties and continue north to the a volcanic (non-active) mountain Bental overlooking the Syrian Border (our 3rd). The view is spectacular, it is evening and sun is in the west, the view east over Syria and the photography are exceptional.

22.pngWe get back on the bikes for our final run through Magdal Shams an Alpine Druze village on mount Hermon, and down to Kibutz Senir to our boutique bungalow. Dinner is great burgers and beer (It is cowboy land here after all) and we hit the sack deeply gratified.

21.pngDay 3 – Senir to Haifa – 240km

Kibbutz life is laid back. Breakfast is at 08:00 and our first stop the Banias nature reserve opening at 09:00 is only 5 minutes away so we take this morning easy. After a short hike into the gorge and the magnificent water fall, we are back on the bikes and skimming the Lebanese border (our 4th) which will be the main part of our day as we cut west on the “Northern Road”. This is a real treat of ‘rollercoaster’, outstanding tarmac rolling between lush vegetation and ever-changing inclines and descents. It’s an hour and we are climbing to our final set of switchbacks to the Keshet Cave.  The view, the air, the arch are all as they should be, and Carlos is smiling too. We stop at a road side stand for the mandatory Pita and Labane (bread with a sour goat cheese) a local Druze dish, on our way to Rosh Hanikra.

23.pngWe descend in the ‘steepest cable car on earth’ to these natural lime grottos. It’s a wonderful photo-op as well as house some of Israel history. We cool off in the mandatory movie and finish with coffee and cake at the restaurant overlooking the bay. This is also an official border crossing between Israel and Lebanon so a picture with the sign 120km to Beirut (240km to Jerusalem) and we are ready for a quick run to our Haifa digs. Dinner is at the Libira Microbrewery in the bustling port area and were turn in for the night.

9.pngDay 4 – Haifa – Tel Aviv – 200km

If you look at google maps Haifa Tel Aviv is only 100km but we are taking the long way around. The day starts with a walking tour through Acre. A World Heritage city with Crusaders, Templers, Saladin, and Napoleon all featuring from every wall. The displays are world class and the market and little fisherman’s port are all great to walk about and taste Arab Jewish culture mixed together. After the mandatory Humus and Falafel we mount our bikes and climb onto the Carmel mountain for a last look out over the Jezreel valley from the Carmelite monastery atop. We take an off-road ride through the forest just for fun and land in Caesarea. The famous preserved old city and port from the Roman times.

12.pngCaesarea was in roman times the most important city in Israel and it was grand beyond the size of the place as a result of Herod’s fetish for large projects. It is also named after Julius Caesar the emperor of Rome at the time. We finish off with a walk-through palace, the Hippodrome, The theater, and the ramparts all as the sun is setting over the Mediterranean Sea.

IMG_8323-e1528323642954.jpgDinner in the Jaffa port in Tel Aviv and we run back to the hotel to watch Real Madrid (with the help of Liverpool’s goal keeper Karius) take the Champions league finals.

IMG_8334-1-e1528324063200.jpgTel Aviv

Day 5 – goodbyes

Breakfast in the Rothschild Boulevard, return the bike, and hugs and goodbyes. Its been a trying week for me as I’m sure it was for Carlos. Israel is challenging destination. You can spend a lifetime exploring it and still not get enough, bur understanding the interrelations of Religions, Politics, Cultures, Heritage and the people are all fascinating as they can be mind boggling.

3.pngAll of this is set in some magnificent and diverse scenery, with state of the art infrastructure. Be it hotels, roads, communications, guides, museums or restaurants Israel offers some of the best of each so just take your pick.

Israel has become one of the hottest destinations in the Near East with tourism soaring to an all-time high. More and more airlines making it a direct destination. Flights from China, India, Australia and South America are all on the way adding to the hundreds of flights from Europe and North America already established, many of which are low cost. A new Ramon airport is about to open in the Arava this year increasing the possibilities even more.

1.pngTAMARBIKES is ready to accommodate the riders and touring companies wanting to explore this unique destination, and I thank Carlos for being a pioneer in coming and taking the time to prepare his.

Well this was an unexpected pleasure. Moto Guzzi and the Italian organizer GoBiker Invited my wife Tamar and myself to a weekend of the Moto Guzzi Experience at Is Molas Sardegna 4th edition.

8-1.pngThe full Moto Guzzi Catalogue

As it was also the weekend of my birthday (thank you all for the blessings) we jumped at the occasion pushed aside some other plans and hopped a flight to Cagliari to start what will definitely be a great weekend of surprises.

1st Surprise – the Moto Guzzi Brand

Truth being said, Israel our home country, is not Moto Guzzi’s largest market, to put it mildly. However, Moto Guzzi is one of the first brands to enter the Israeli market some 40 + years ago, and thus it is definitely part of our childhood scene and loved by its followers back home too.

9-1.pngThe brand

It was therefore a very pleasant surprise to finally meet Moto Guzzi in the flesh.  Great people great bikes a great heritage and a bunch of almost religious followers and lovers of a century old brand.

Once you get riding the magic begins the forward-facing V engines, the trademark of moto Guzzi, the purring sound, the Italian eye for detail, and the somewhat retro look of gages and other accessories on the bike, all amount to a unique identity of this brand.

2nd Surprise – Sardegna

It was my first time in Sardegna. So, while I was preparing asked Andrea our host how is the food going to be? “The best Italian food you’ve ever eaten” came the answer. True, Sardegna as an island has developed its own kitchen with its unique specialties and flavors, however it doesn’t get much better and after two tours in Italy these past months this island certainly offers it very differently, and very good.

6-1.pngThe group parked for lunch

In addition, most of the day we were riding either along rocks hanging over the Mediterranean Sea or through mountain roads and passes. Both created an infinite number of outstanding vistas and endless winding roads.

3rd  Surprise  – the staff

As a boutique tour organizer, we limit our groups around the world to no more than 12 bikes on each tour this is more or less the max number you can manage safely and still have a sense of control over the group.

2-1.pngSmooth riding with the great staff of the factory

Here Moto Guzzi and their tour leader GoBiker lead a group of 47 bikes! However, the pace and the route were managed in addition to the tour guide and sweeper by 3 Marshals on 3 factory editions of Aprilia Tuono. These were riding up and down the peloton blocking off intersections marking the next leg and generally making everything run smoother as this long group of Moto Guzzi bikes made its way winding through the hills of Sardegna effortlessly.

4th surprise – the roads

1-1.pngThe Moto Guzzi organization

Even though Sardegna (and Corsica) are known for the riding roads the magnitude and quality of the asphalt and the riding was out of this world. There were legs of an hour or more when you felt you hadn’t been a single minute on the center of the rubber of your tiers, unless it was to change a left hander to a right hander turn or vice versa. Endless curves for miles and miles with the right bikes and you simply can’t get enough. A truly amazing experience, and we’ve ridden on almost every continent on earth.

In summery

4-1.pngProud followers

Everything came together for this weekend making it a unique experience. The riding, the people, the roads, the bikes and a great group of international riders that turned out to be a fun bunch sharing their passion for motorcycling in general and for the Moto Guzzi brand in particular,

Thank you, Moto Guzzi hope to ride, with you soon again.

After the boarder necessities and lunch, we are off and climbing through amazing views into the Reef mountains. Our destination of the first day will be the amazing blue city of Chefchauen but we will realize its beauty only tomorrow when we stroll its medina in the morning.

1.pngthe Blue City in actual colors

We will have a stop on the imperial city of Fez, with its amazing Kasbah with its 9400 streets and allies it is mesmerizing as it is fascinating.  The great Dar and traditional dinner are a perfect way to end the day before we hit the sack.

22.pngThe Hotels on the Morocco Adventure

Next day we are climbing again this time into the Atlas. The Alpine village of Ifran, the Ceder forests the monkeys and the off-road ride are all part of this morning venture into the mountains, roads are getting smaller and weather is less than perfect as we are riding through some fog and sub 10 degrees temperatures. Things clear up as we head out to the mid Atlas getting ready for one of the most amazing roads we’ve ridden anywhere on our way to the Bin-il-Widiane lake side spa resort.

10.pngThe Ouzud Falls

Our last day of the Mid-Atlas on our way to Marakech our mid tour marker, begins with a tour of the amazing Ouzud water falls. They are very thing they set out to be, powerful, high and very beautiful. After this we are strolling into the Marrakech valley letting the km melt away. An evening stroll to the Jama El Fna and dinner at a local booth will end a perfect day and the first half of our tour.

13.pngBerbers in traditional costume

Marrakech – hitting the half way marker.

This much needed rest day is an opportunity not only to rest and massage our aching limbs, but also to stroll the markets, meet the local folk and even get invited into a family for tea and sweats, as our crowed did. I spent most of the morning getting the tons of footage and photos on to our hard drive and the afternoon is spent strolling this amazing Souq I love and getting some gifts for the family and dried fruit for the rest of the tour. Were all too tiered for the 320 km to Asweira and back so the option remains un-used.

15.pngThe Marrakech Souq

One can’t talk about Marrakech without talking about the Jama-el-Fna. This amazing unique square piazza place or whatever you want to call it in your home language is the epicenter of Marrakech’ perhaps of Morocco. A stage for Berber shows of Music, snakes, dancing and commerce by day, and a never-ending food festival by night don’t miss coming back to this it at different times of the day for the full Marrakech experience. Our last visit we sat on the roof terrace of the café de France overlooking this bustling square from above.

14.pngThe Jama-al-Fna

Complimented by one of the best Souqs in the world this is a place you can spend days at not hours and never get enough.

Off to the Sahara

Marרakech is the end of many routes of merchandise running from the desert, so it is no surprise that the road between Marrakech and the Sahara is jam packed with sites and points of interest. We start our day with a climb to the Highest paved pass in morocco, The Tiz’n’Tichka.

20.pngSnowy atlas peaks

Eid ben Hadou one of the oldest, biggest, and certainly the most famous Kasbah in Morocco, is our next stop on the way to Boulamne du Dades our stop for the night. We won’t arrive there before stopping at the Ourzazate film studios for some photo ops at the Game of thrones and Gladiator sets.

21.pngEid ben Hadou

The next day begins by climbing to the fabulous Dades pass, if you’re a biker you haven’t been in Morocco without the mandatory ride up and down this crazy road. Next in line is the Todra gorge always packed with tourists and Berber merchants selling you their creations.  From here it’s a run against sundown to reach the desert in time to get there in time for a ride out to the luxury desert camps, by Camel or 4X4 your choice.

26.pngThe Dades Pass – a must for any biker

The Sahara is a unique and exceptional experience every time. The endless dunes, the stars at night the sunrise in the morning are all exceptional experiences and all together leave you with a sense of awe and true connection to nature and all its majestic beauty. Unforgettable!

28.pngthe Sahara

The road back from the desert

The road back to the Mediterranean coast line will take us through the Ziz valley and the Legionnaires road and Tunnel. After a stop in Midelt for the night we hit the road with the final run to the ancient fort city of Melilla. This is a Spanish strong hold in north Africa and our port of boarding the overnight ferry to Malaga. Our last day is our longest and fastest and we cover 490 km in one day a grand finale to an amazing tour.

23.pngThe Legionnaires Tunnel

After our farewell dinner celebrating a great tour in the old port of Melilla we board the ferry take our cabins and wake up 6 hours later in the port of Malaga.

Riding across hard territory always runs the risk of getting a flat tire. While on our last tour to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego one of the F800GS started loosing air rapidly and we had to stop and change it. Luckily Roberto our support driver was well equipped and we were back on the road in no time (23 Minutes to be precise) but still we had a great time practicing this ever so important skill.

Here are some pictures from this event:

Here is a video I came across with a really professional guy from BMW of America explaining how to do it correctly.

Enjoy!

2017, Our best year yet!

It's December 31st, I am sitting in my living room thinking about what we’ve done in the motorcycle guided tour field this year and frankly, I never dreamed TAMARBIKES would accomplish so much, what did we have?! We toured 4 continents this year: Africa, Europe, South America and Asia - some more than once. We continued establishing and building the TAMARBIKES brand with the unique offering of our tours. These included besides in-depth route planning, major sites and attractions, professional tour leaders, support vehicle for luggage and hand-picked accommodation, also a selected offering of local cuisine and in-depth cultural interactions.  
13-2.pngA TAMARBIKES group selfie

Each tour also came with, top of the line maps, the Tamarbikes combination of tour Dri-fit T-Shirt and the TAMARBIKES Base-Ball cap and a changing variety of giveaways. This year we introduced an option to purchase a tour Soft-Shell Jacket, which turned out to be a great success.

IMG_9700-e1514987143246.jpgSmiling clients of TAMARBIKES in tour T-shirt
We are also gradually becoming a world leader in self-guided tours, a popular product line expanding alongside the growth of our guided tours. We entertained guests crossing France, Africa and Greece, solo or in small groups - all routes and accommodation prearranged by TAMARBIKES. All riders and pillions returned with amazing stories and feedback.
IMG_8371-e1514987566220.jpgTAMARBIKES Self Guided tours

The highlights:

On our Morocco tour, we visited the largest desert on earth taking a ride and an overnight in the Sahara Desert. Together with 10 days of great riding, part gravel, we got to know better this amazing country and its friendly people.
IMG_3746-e1514987989260.jpgAit ben Haddou – 1300 year old casba
Later this year we visited the highest village on earth, Komic, as part of our Himalaya Adventure. Manali, the Spiti Valley, and the Kinnaur Valley were all part of an exceptional and grueling ride. Much of this route runs high over 3000m (9000 ft.) with peaks above 4500m (13,500 ft.), with beauty beyond imagination but also some challenges to overcome. Certainly, a must for any rider whether of the more adventurous type or less.
1.pngRiding The TAMARBIKES Himalaya Adventure
The end of this year was about reaching the ‘Ends of the Earth’! Our Patagonia and Tierra-del-Fuego adventure took us to the most southern city on earth, Ushuaia, also known locally as ‘Fin Del Mundo’. This, once in a lifetime ride also took us on the longest national road on earth - Argentina’s AR40 - and to some of the most famous natural attractions on earth such as the Perito Moreno Glacier and the Torres del Paine national park, certainly one of the top 10 in the world.
16.pngThe Argentina Lake District

What’s up for 2018?!

There is a wider availability of all these fabulous adventures for 2018. However, tours are filling up fast even as we speak. The TAMARBIKES offering is going to expand with additional destinations varying from the Leh-Ladak in the Himalayas, through Rajasthan in India, Peru Bolivia Argentina high Andes,  Japan and to a Vietnam Adventures.
