Motorcycle tours begin in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka Extreme Bike Tours

Sri Lanka is a country that seems to be off the schedule for most motorcycle tour companies, but not Extreme Bike Tours.

They will start operating tours of the temples, jungles, tea plantations and palm-fringed beaches in July and August 2016 riding classic Royal Enfield motorbikes.

Extreme Bike Tours sounds like the riders will be roughing it, but nothing could be further from the truth.

The 13-day tours offer luxury accommodation each night starting in Galle in south-eastern Sri Lanka on July 9 and August 6, 2016.

The 1450km ride is for both licensed riders and non-experienced pillion passengers seeking the thrill of motorbiking in mystical Sri Lanka aboard 350cc Royal EnfieldsSri Lanka Extreme Bike Tours

The personalised tour includes stays each night in deluxe, hand-picked hotels, with the itinerary taking in Sri Lanka’s beautiful Buddhist temples, tea plantations, misty rainforests, tropical beaches, abundant wildlife and ruins of ancient civilisations. 

The tour costs A$7071 for riders and A$5886 for pillion passengers including accommodation along the route, all meals on the tour, fuel and motorbike hire. There are no single supplements for solo travellers. Flights to Sri Lanka are extra.

Extreme Bike Tours is based in India and owned by former Englishman and adrenalin junkie, Zander Combe who owns two original 1991 Royal Enfield 500 Bullets with the kick start and gears on the wrong side. One is his original tour bike.

“We’re called Extreme Bike Tours because of the locations we go to, not the way we ride or anything else,” he says. “Anyone who is a confident rider on a licence can come on our tours. It’s about the location rather than riding around trying to kill ourselves.”

  1. I would say that the 10 bikers from HOG Dubai Chapter made the first ever group ride around the Sri Lankan Island in 2013. Expanded to 15 riders in 2014 and again rode with a group of 21bikers from the UAE with the first ever CanAm to ride in Sri Lanka in August 2015. More HD groups are already on the 2016 callender to ride in Sri Lanka.

  2. I visited Sri Lanka for the first time this year. I’d never consider riding a motorcycle there! There’s a definite food chain on the roads there and bikes aren’t near the top of it. Very dangerous.
