Born to Ride – Classic Bike Adventures

 Spring 2017 Newsletter

First, some personal words from Road Captain Peter:
The Indian cash crisis hit us hard this past winter season, leaving us playing to a half-empty house in Goa and southern India. We had a lot of free rooms in Casa Tres Amigos, and the South India tours were only half-booked. But when the government suddenly goes nuts and makes it impossible for people to live a normal life, shop and travel, all you can really do is roll with it...

The cash shortage in India has been overcome in the mean time and we’re looking forward to a great Ladakh season.
Ladakh Tour

The regular tours are booked solid, and I’m especially happy that the pilot tour with Vinod, Wolfgang and myself in the guiding team is also filling up fast.

In February, I went on my first Goa and South India Classic Tour in over 10 years, with Raja (my stepson) as a Junior Guide. It was a great experience, even though I could only follow along in my SUV. I was down with acute appendicitis in January and spent 13 days in hospital due to a complicated abdominal cavity inflammation and difficult surgery, and I’m still not 100% fit.

I won’t be up for long rides on rugged Indian trails on a Bullet for a while yet, but everything should be completely healed up by summer. Then I’ll be back in the saddle for the Himalayan tours – first Ladakh, then Bhutan, and finally Mustang. But first, it’s time for the Sauerland Party in June. For the first time, my whole family from India will be there, and many old and new friends are also coming!


South India Tour

After 28 years, we’re still having a blast with our many friends, and the tours just keep getting better. I’m very satisfied, and so are our tour bikers – we get terrific feedback, and it’s great to see so many of you time and again.

It doesn’t get much better than this, and we’re going to keep putting our hearts and all of our dedication into crafting our tours.
It’s time for me to take a break from touring to give you a little preview of what we have in store for you. I hope you enjoy this newsletter and the many colorful images of our world.

Peter & Sonia

Let’s begin with the most important news:

The COUNTDOWN has begun:


Sauerland Party logo

Fri. the 16th to Sun. the 18th of June, 2017

The Sauerland Party in Arnsberg, Germany!

We’ll be screening the “Road to Mustang – Bikers’ Support Nepal”, the German premiere of a documentary by Uli Bree and Martin Stoni.
Peter will be filling us in on the Bikers Support Nepal project and his latest plans for the Casa Tres Amigos in Goa. He’ll be there with his Royal Enfield Scrambler, and Werner will be meeting with the riders of his Overland Tour to prepare for the trip. We’ve invited the same acoustic musicians that played at the last party. So far, already more than 60 friends have confirmed that they’ll be there, and we’re sure that many more will be coming.

Just one thing: let us know if you want to come to the party. Knowing how many guests to expect is important for our preparations. Just shoot a quick email to RC Peter.
Sauerland Party

If you’d like to stay in a hotel or guesthouse in Arnsberg, be sure to book in advance – we recommend www.booking.com

There were still rooms to be had as of April 1:

...the next tours with the Road Captains are slated for March and November 2018, and plenty of bikes are still available.

Only two bikes left on the Magic Nepal Tour in March 2018!
More are available in October 2018:

In the coming year, our tours will be available exclusively through our website. Our cooperation with MOTORRAD action team has come to an amicable end.Over the past two years, more than 80% of our tour guests booked with us directly, and so going through an agency was no longer worth the effort.

The advantage for you: tours in South India, Nepal, Bhutan and Ladakh previously offered through MAT will now be around 10% cheaper on average! Booking will also be simpler: send us an email, make a down payment and we’ll send you a confirmation. You can rely on us for in-depth advice on our tours, either by email or personally on the phone.

We’re also dropping all of the tours and destinations that we can’t serve with our own crews and bikes.

In future, we intend to focus on the home of the Royal Enfields, i.e. four different tours in the Indian Himalayas, as well as tours in Bhutan and Nepal and the Road to Mustang as a special highlight.

We’re going to remain active in South India and Goa, and most definitely in the medieval heart of India, Madhya Pradesh, as well as Uttarkhand, the new Himalayan biker’s paradise. India, Nepal and Bhutan are more than enough for us.





Ladakh 3 Lakes Tour
The five 5,000+ passes and three lakes of Ladakh. Our most popular tour – we’ve run it 29 times with more than 350 satisfied bikers over the past nine years and it’s still a true adventure...

The tour is on our program four times in the summer of 2018. One of the dates is almost fully booked, otherwise plenty of bikes are still available. In our experience, the tours will be fully booked by next winter.

Here are the dates and new, lower prices:

Ladakh 3 Lakes Tour 2018 price
We have a very special Ladakh tour coming up for our pilot-tour friends at the end of this summer: We’re taking a hand-picked group to explore new tracks, valleys and passes and possibly integrate them into a revised 3 Lakes of Ladakh Tour as of 2018. We don’t want to give away too much, other than that it’s going to be really exciting...

Road Captains Wolfgang, Vinod and Peter are slated for the tour, most likely with their lovely “assistants” Sonia and Ana.

13 riders are already on board, and two bikes at the most are still available...

Ladakh Pilot Tour Preis 2018

As of this summer we’re going to be offering the new Royal Enfield Himalayan Enduro on all tours, subject to availability. The Himalayans are available for small surcharge of €180 per tour – first come, first served!

Right now we have two Himalayans, and we’re not going to be adding more just yet. The bikes have been a bit less than reliable, and it’s still not possible to get spares for them anywhere in India. According to Road Captain Wolfgang, the Himalayas have better ground clearance and a more comfortable ride, but slightly less power and not quite as much torque as the classic Bullet.

Werner and our local mechanics did a great job of coaxing a bit more grunt out of the 400cc, 25hp engine and making them sound and handle better, but they’re still no match for that traditional Bullet feeling.

Our 2017 tour program is a mix of our classics:

Nepal – South India – Ladakh – Bhutan

For detailed info, visit
www.classic-bike-india.com

And here are a couple of tasty new tours we’d like to recommend:

The new Colonial Trail Tour from Goa to Cochin...

A bike tour with comfortable hotels, the finest mountain roads, hill stations and colonial-era flavor!

The next date has already been set: Saturday, Feb. 17 to Monday, March 5, 2018. The tour starts in Goa and ends in Cochin.
Optionally, why not spend a few days with us at Casa Tres Amigos in Goa to relax and get used to the climate before we hit the road? We’ll be happy to send you a quote.

Goa-Kerala Tour price
 


We’ve done two pilot runs of this tour in previous winters, with discerning groups led by our Road Captains Willy and Martin. It was a great experience for riders and guides alike. We’ve refined the route further and added a day, and it’s now part of our regular tour program. Here’s Willy’s Facebook photo album of the first tour in 2015.

Breaking News: The Casa Tres Amigos is going to remain our tropical bikers’ home.
Peter and his family have decided not give it up after all. Far from it! We made so many friends and had so much fun last season – things are just way too good at the Casa and in Goa to quit now. So Peter and his crew rolled up their sleeves and gave the place a subtle upgrade.
All of the rooms and cottages are getting new bathrooms, the pool is being re-tiled, and later two handsome private villas will be built in the garden for friends who want to set up their own winter residence. If you’d like to join our Casa Tres Amigos community, here’s your chance...

Casa Tres Amigos, Goa

We will once again be open for you in November. Our proven crew of Ranjita, Subash, Werner, Sonia, Peter and all the others will be there to pamper you until April.

We’ve changed the concept a bit and won’t be taking bookings via HRS, booking.com or Airbnb any more. Instead, we welcome anyone who finds their way directly to us. We think this move will be good for the laid-back chemistry of the Casa family...
