 Winter 2016-17 Newsletter

Ladakh Tour
First, some personal words from Road Captain Peter:

We just got back from Bhutan, where we rode the 13-day Bhutan Intensive Tour from East to West for the first time – a fantastic experience! More info below...

This past year I experienced, organized and guided five awesome Classic Bike Adventure groups.

They included our “farewell tours” of Thailand and Tibet, as well as the Madya Pradesh pilot tour and the current Spiti and Bhutan tours.

I also got together with old friends from Sauerland, Germany for a dirt bike revival and organized five Ladakh tours from Leh over the summer. A great year of nonstop action!!

Ladakh Tour

After 27 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 to take a break from touring to give you a little preview of what we have in store for you next year. And also time to look back on our autumn tours.

I hope you enjoy this newsletter and the many colorful images of our world. Let’s begin with the most important news:

Ladakh Tour

If you don’t have any plans for the winter yet, but could do with a tropical time-out, you might want to check this out:

Brigitte Burri of the Swiss magazine Motor Sport Schweiz joined us on our South India and Goa tour – the text is in German, but pictures are worth a thousand words...

Bikes are still available on this tour.

Goa-South India Tour

For bikers in double rooms, the tour costs only €2170; for pillions or jeep passengers, the price is €1800. Single room supplement: €450.

Ethihad/Jet Airways, Qatar and Oman Air offer economical direct flights to Goa – here are a few examples:

Goa-South India Tour

We still have a few openings on the following South India tours:

Goa-South India Tour

Goa-South India Tour



Spiti Tour

After the great success of the 2016 Spiti Tour, we’ve decided to schedule a special Spiti Tour for 2017! Also because the 2018 Spiti Tour is already booked solid...

Kullu Spiti Tour

And here’s the ultimate photo album of the 2016 tour:

Twelve years in the saddle in the Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan...

We took a year off in 2015. I then worked out a new tour that we tested with 14 bikers in November.

The result: It’s a hit.

I quickly decided that we were going to offer three tours in 2017!

I posted this on our FB page only four weeks ago.

Ladakh Tour
Since then, things have gotten much, much better:

Bhutan has something very special to offer this year – an unexpected treat for all DIRT BIKERS among us. For the past year, Bhutan has been working on widening the single East-West “highway” that snakes across the whole country, through the mountains and over the passes – and they’re doing it almost everywhere at the same time.
So now we can cruise along endless dusty trails and gravel roads for at least the next year or two! A few pics will give you the idea:

And here’s the whole Bhutan group on the Dorchu La Pass with the snow-capped peaks of Tibet in the background, with bikers from Chile, Austria, England, Germany, India and Switzerland.

We’re doing this tour three times in 2017 – and there are still a few bikes to be had.

In the autumn, we once again took to the roads of Nepal with two groups...

And for the first time, we were joined by a BLUE SHEEP, courtesy of our friend Thomas Goos.

Here are a few impressions:

Our grand Road to Mustang Nepal Tour in November is already a classic in our program.

And this year’s adventure ride was a blast for all twenty bikers...

Ladakh Tour

The five 5,000+ passes and three lakes of Ladakh is our most popular tour – we’ve run it 25 times with more than 300 satisfied bikers over the past eight years and it’s still a true adventure...

The tour is on our program four times next summer. Bikes are still available for the 7-30 July 2016 tour, but in our experience they’ll be booked soon!

Here are all of the dates for 2018 and our new, lower prices. Ladakh 3 Lakes Tour

We have a very special Ladakh tour coming up for our pilot-tour friends at the end of next summer: We’re taking a small, flexible 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, but it’s going to be really exciting...

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

Ladakh Pilot Tour



Classic Bike Classic Bike

Starting 2017 we’re going to be offering the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 410cc enduro on all tours, subject to availability.

The Himalayans are available for small surcharge of €180 per tour – first come, first served!

We have two Himalayans now, and five of the enduros in our fleet in Ladakh in 2017.

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. They lack the traditional Bullet sound and the incomparable 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

CBA Tours

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

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!

Goa-Kerala Tour price
 

The next date has already been set: Saturday, Feb. 25 to Monday, March 13, 2017. 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.


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.

The COUNTDOWN has begun: 

Friday the 16th to Sunday the 18th of June, 2017
Time for the next big Sauerland Party in Arnsberg, Germany!

 

Sauerland Party in Arnsberg, Germany



We’re going to be celebrating the movie premiere of the “Road to Mustang – Bikers’ Support Nepal” documentary by Uli Bree and Martin Stoni.

Peter will be there with his Royal Enfield Scrambler, and we’ll have a bonfire, handmade live music and delicious cold Veltins Pils to wash it all down. Stay tuned for more info about the program in our spring newsletter.

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

Hotel Booking Arnsberg



Casa Tres Amigos, Goa

The Casa Tres Amigos in Goa will remain open until April of next year, and after that our traditional home base will be history. Peter is going to sell the Casa and finally settle in the Himalayas. Our bike tour company is already on its way to its new headquarters in the Kullu Valley.

Casa Tres Amigos, Goa – history

We still have one shared season ahead of us – Peter, Ranjita, Werner and the whole team will once again go the extra mile for you until the end of March. Our South India tours will will start and end at the Casa one last time, and we’ve already found a new base in Asvem for the post-Casa era. All will be revealed soon...

Our room rates are now significantly lower, on average by nearly 20%. We streamlined our price list with fewer rates and better prices – also during peak season over Christmas and New Years.

So, that wraps up all the latest news from the worlds of Classic Bike Adventures and Casa Tres Amigos. We’ll be back with our next newsletter in the spring.

Have a great winter and an amazing holiday season with all the trimmings!

And keep dreaming of your next adventure with us!

See you soon – cruising in the Himalayas, in Goa and the South of India, in M.P., “the heart of India”, in Bhutan, or just relaxing in Goa…

Two tasty new bikes will be hitting the Indian market in the coming year – a petite BMW GS 310 and a brawny Royal Enfield 750 Cafe Racer.

We’re looking forward to putting both through their paces. Stay tuned!
