About Our Backcountry Motorcycle Tours

Extensive Planning

Our guides conduct extensive research on all of the routes we offer, including possible complications, alternate routes, possible weather issues, and more. We do our homework so you don’t have to. At Emmaus MotoTours, you can expect your guide to not only be friendly, but thoroughly and exceptionally prepared. We always have a backup plan for our backup plan. 

Expert Guides

All of our tours are led by guides with extensive experience in long adventure motorcycle trips. Our guides have an in-depth knowledge of mechanics, navigation, travel health, and are first aid certified. 

Tailored Trips

What sets us apart from other tour companies is our ability to provide tailored guidance based on your skill level, allowing you the flexibility to ride at your own pace without pressure or stress. 

Focus on Safety

Safety comes first at Emmaus MotoTours. We understand the importance of having a detailed plan in place, and guides that are well versed in first aid, motorcycle maintenance, and general problem solving. That way, we can mitigate the regular risks that you might encounter in ways that you can’t do riding alone or in a small group. 

“Adventure riding is one of the fastest growing classes of motorcycling for good reason. Adventure bikes are some of the most versatile and capable motorcycles you can buy. They are comfortable enough to conquer hundreds of miles of interstate without a whimper, and they are rugged enough to climb the highest mountain passes.”
