Motorcycle Tour in France

Head for the Mountains

You won’t find a better two days four nights riding anywhere else.  Legendary mountain passes, spectacular gorges, hair raising balcony roads, classy accommodations & fantastic food.

Departure point is Grenoble, France, capital of the Alps.  Your bike will be waiting for you at your hotel in Grenoble.  Two full riding days jam packed with thrills from start to end.

In the evening you’ll return to the same hotel.  No need to worry about hauling your stuff, you can leave it in your room.  If your partner isn’t up for riding with you, there’s plenty to see and do in Grenoble.  Then meet up in the evening for great dinners and discuss your adventures.

Day 1

On today’s agenda, a few iconic mountain passes immortalized on the Tour de France.  Whether you’ve heard of them or not, they will remain engraved into your memory.

375 thrilling kilometers of jaw dropping roads are beckoning.  6 top shelf roads, all in one day.

-Alpe d’Huez (1860m)

-Col du Glandon (1924m)

-Col de la Croix de Fer Iron Cross (2,067m)

-Telegraphe Pass (1,566m)

-Col du Galibier (2,642m)

-Lautaret Pass (2,058m)

Once back in Grenoble, get some well deserved rest and have a fantastic dinner.  Maybe a stroll through the historic part of town or ride up the cable car to the Bastille and get some great evening views of the metropolis.

Day 2

The Vercors

If Day 1 didn’t blow your mind, today will.  Scenery, curves, gorges, passes…Ride through the Vercors, home of French resistance fighters in WWII.

Balcony roads, tunnels, spectacular scenery…the Vercors hosted some of the Alpine events from the 1968 Winter Olympics.

The balcony roads in the Vercors are tight with little or no guardrail.  Look at the rock overhangs and the sheer drop-off (but not for too long).  Your pillion may get nervous in some sections.

BMW f800 GT

Displacement: 798cc Torque: 63Nm /46.5 ft lbs. @5800 rpm
Weight: 213.2 (wet)
Seat Height: Standard: 800mm / 31.5 inches
Low Setting: N/A
Low Seat Option: N/A
Wheelbase: 1,514mm / 59.6 inches
Options: ESA electronic suspension, heated grips, luggage & top case.


BMW appears to have got the balance right with the F800GT. It has just the right blend of sport and tourer for a motorcycle of this size and type.
It also makes a sensible proposition for anyone considering taking up motorcycling for the first time and it even has appeal for the more experienced rider who wants a light, but robust sports tourer that will happily eat up the miles in a no nonsense sort of way.
And where this BMW really scores is you’ll have a lot of fun doing that and just getting out there and riding it.

BMW R1200 RT

Displacement: 1170cc Torque: 120Nm / 88.5ft lbs @6000rpm
Weight: 229kg / 504.9lbs
Seat Height:
Standard: 840mm / 33 inches
Low Setting: 820mm / 32.2 inches
Low Seat Option: 780-800mm /30.7 inches
Wheelbase: 1485mm / 58.4 inches
Options: ESA electronic suspension, heated grips & seats, electric windscreen, cruise control, luggage, topcase & tank bag.


“the BMW R 1200 RT has long been sport touring’s standard-bearer. Designed, built and refined in the shadow of the Alps, the RT name is synonymous with tractable power, intuitive handling and first-rate comfort and wind protection. Its trademark air/oil-cooled boxer twin with shaft drive represents 90 years of BMW design tradition, a setup that has proven to be reliable and popular.”

BMW R1200 RS

YEAR 2015-

Displacement: 1170cc Torque: 125Nm /92 ft lbs. @6500 rpm
Weight: 231kg (wet) 502 lbs
Seat Height: Standard: 820mm / 32.2 inches
Low Setting: 760mm
Low Seat Option: N/A
Wheelbase: 1,514mm / 59.6 inches
Options: ESA electronic suspension, shift assist pro, heated grips, luggage & top case.


“The beauty of this boxer is the feel of immediate torque. After thumbing the starter and feeling the left-to-right rattle that harmonizes into a continuous melody, the R1200RS’ engine presents hefty torque from the first crack of throttle to the maximum 92 ft/lbs at 6500 rpm.” Read the full review here:


Engine size: 1170
Cylinders: 2
hp/kW: 125/ 92
Vehicle weight (kg): 238
Seat height (mm): 850


The result has improved the already class leading GS in almost every aspect. The engine is a measurable step forward right through the rev range yet retains its boxer character. It looks cleaner and neater, is more comfortable and sophisticated and handles better too.

In my opinion, these two bikes are by far the most dynamic and full-featured touring motorcycles ever produced. I have always said, often to the surprise of many, that my dream shed of bikes would certainly include a Gold Wing among its numbers. That dream shed often changes, once upon a time there wasn’t a single BMW in it, but now the K 1600 GT joins its Bavarian brothers the R 1200 GS and K 1300 R in the list of machinery that’s managed to steal my heart since BMW has dramatically upped their game in the past few years.

The S1000XR is an exciting new offering from BMW. The S1000RR Superbike has helped transform the marque from its stodgy, pipes-and-slippers trope to a more robust, high-performance bike brand, and the S1000XR builds on this momentum.
