The Black Forest Motorcyle Tour isn’t just for speed demons. Because we use a drop off system, it allows all riders of varying abilities to ride at their own pace. There is no need to feel you are being left behind or holding the rest of the group up. Our Escorted Black Forest Germany Motorcycle Tour is an incredible route for bikers who like roads with ribbon like tarmac and race track style bends! You will experience a unique route created by Guided Motorbike Tours that captivates some of the best roads in the Black Forest, in return giving you one hell of an adrenalin buzz!

The tour takes us through Belgium and into Luxembourg with a stop off (time pending) in the Ardennes Valley for lunch on day one. On the second day of the tour we make our way through the Black Forest, soaking up only the best, most scenic roads on offer. In addition to this daily schedule for the next three days we eat cake and drink coffee during the day and scoff some great meals during the evening along with some beers, German beers, or wine, whilst chatting over the fantastic and fun time we’ve had during the days riding, all escorted by one of our professional, fun, friendly and helpful tour guides who’ll also be on hand to offer anyone that requests it, advanced riding skills and tips to get the most out of your experience.Ardennes France Motorcycle Tour

The scenery in the Black Forest is sublime, the roads are like black ribbons flowing through the tall pines that line many of the routes. We will also spend time on the famous B500, also known as the “Best biking road in Europe”, more so because it has some of the most inviting and exciting bends and straights, perfectly matched to give you a sense of being on a race track!

So take the plunge and dive on in, you can book online with a deposit and secure your place on one of the dates. The tour spaces do go fast (really they do!) so if you are keen to join this tour, don’t spend too much time thinking about it or you may regret it.

IS THIS SUITABLE FOR ME?
This is a road / tarmac based tour and does not have any off road riding. The tour is lead by a professional tour guide who will allow riders the flexibility to go on ahead or ride at their own pace if they wish. This is not a coach tour on two wheels! As long as you are a confident rider you will be ok. Last year we had two new riders and they coped brilliantly

WHAT ARE THE ROADS LIKE
The roads do allow you to pick up the pace due to the very nature of their bends, curves and hairpins. There are sections with tight bends and steep inclines and declines

Again, we get to see some wonderful scenic routes, some “off tourist” routes (our own unique routes with plenty of fun) and plenty of time to sit and relax with a coffee in the many cafes along the way, finished off with a beer when we get back to our hotel in the evening. On route we ride through Baden Baden and Nord Vosges National Park before stopping off just outside the town of Pont-A-Mousson

WILL I NEED A SAT NAV?

No but we strongly recommend you bring something with you that will guide you to the hotel, such as a smart phone just in case. A sat nav will allow you to import the routes we provide onto it for your reference or ease of use

DO YOU PROVIDE THE MAPS?

Yes, we provide a map file in GPX format for your sat nav for each day. We will provide guidance on how to import to your sat nav device if you are unfamiliar with this

WHAT ARE THE HOTELS LIKE?

The hotels are of good standard and not the usual coach tour style so often seen on other tours. Some hotels may have a spa or swimming pool so bring your bikini! Where a rider is sharing a room with another rider, some hotels may have rooms that are classed as “doubles”, it is a large double bed frame with single mattresses and single bedding (this is very typical of German and Austrian hotels and is unavoidable)

WHAT ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE FOR EVENING MEALS

We can eat at the hotel or the tour guide will find somewhere close by that is recommended. Usually this is good quality food at a very reasonable price (£10 -15) per meal

WILL I BE LEFT AT THE PETROL STATION IF I AM LAST TO FILL UP?

No, we don’t leave anyone behind or struggling to catch up. It’s a policy we have adopted since day one and maintain this. We achieve this by using the Drop-Off System

WHAT DO THE RIDER STYLES MEAN?

We have several ways of grading our tours, they are as follows;

  • Novice – For new riders and new tourers entering Europe
  • Moderate – A typically standard pace within the speed limits
  • Flexible – Allows riders to ride their own pace or go ahead and meet at a designated point if they are in the need to blast away the cobwebs
  • Experienced – For confident riders typically with 3 years or more riding experience
  • Advanced – IAM or RoSPA Certificated Riders or similar
  • Adventure – Riders who have some off road experience and a suitable motorcycle
  • Progressive – A progressive riding style tour that some may find challenging to keep up with the group if they have little experience or have not had advanced training
  • Off Road – Typically this is when 30% or more of the tour is off tarmac and riders should have had experience riding off road

Both me and me pal (Dynamic Dave) have Just returned back from the Black Forest trip and were still buzzing, 5 Countries (6 if you include the UK) in 5 days, we feel like extreme bikers now. Ha Ha. Seriously, the trip was fantastic, with great company, unbelievable views with surprisingly, amazing weather all trip. Snips the tour guide could not do enough to help you out, providing great riding tips through his many years experience and going out his way to ensure all riders were catered for regardless of experience. Highly recommended and a great value experience. Hope to meet up again with you all soon on the next one. Cheers to all.

What can I say, other than book the tour you will have a great laugh. The tour guide was superb, offering advanced riding tips to those that wanted/needed it which gave them a much more improved riding experience. What a credit to the industry, well done GMT, I will be back for another tour in 2018

The B500

And yet another fantastic tour the b500 black Forest . I’ve been touring with GMT for 3years now and met some great new friends along the way. I have just come back from the b500 Black Forest tour with the newest tour guide Craig Parsons AK (snips). And what a fantastic and friendly guy he is always there if you need advice on improving your riding. and I have seen it first hand . The first time I ever went on tour with guided motorbike tours I was a little bit nervous as I normally ride with my friends. But meeting Chris Seagal for the first time within the first five minutes I felt that I had been riding alongside him for years and also gave me a few pointers on my riding which I found extremely useful and very grateful for.
Touring with guided motorcycle tours is not like any other tour company that I have heard of and have seen when I have been on holiday touring. If you think that you will be led like ducklings following mother duck you will have a big shock. Don’t get me wrong you will not be pushed out of your comfort zone but your riding skills will change without you even knowing. You can ride at your own pace whether it’s slow or whether you are a more aggressive Rider. And if you are like me I like a bit of speed and more aggressive riding. so i end up going on a head of the group so I can have a bit of fun.( With the ok of the tour guide of course.) I am so looking forward to booking another tour whether it will be this year or definitely next year. And looking forward to making some new friends along the way.
Thanks GMT for yet another fantastic holiday. Chris and Snips

No Frills. Loads of Thrills!

I have just returned from the B500 tour. This was my second tour with GMT.
What a fantastic time I have had! This is an out and out riders tour. There are a few stops for sightseeing, and to take in the views, which are stunning, but the emphasis is on riding. The roads are outstanding. Because of the drop off system, everyone can ride at their own pace.
Snips was our guide, and ensured that everyone had a great time. Because other guests are like minded the conversation regularly returned to motorbikes.
Hotels are adequate, but basic.
If you want to take your bike, and have five days of fantastic fun on it, riding just for the sake of riding, on superb roads, in a beautiful environment, book this tour!

If you love face roads, beer and laughing with like minded people then this is great opportunity. I was apprehensive as I usually ride with my mates in a group but having been on this tour I now realise how much work and effort goes into planning one of these tours. In all the trips I’ve been on with my mates we never experienced roads or fun quite like this. We will be back!
