2019 - Baffled by Brexit? Then get away from it!

2019 - Baffled by Brexit? Then get away from it!
Happy new year everyone, and welcome to 2019 and if we didn't need enough to worry about already with the regular 'Carry On Members of Parliament' updates dominating the news we now have the added worries of riding in Europe during a 'Deal or No Deal' that would even make Noel Edmonds bite his perfectly kept nails.

But we don't want you to worry about all that, because that is our job! All you need to do is bring your passport (We will mention that in our next blog) and meet us at the RV point for some stunning mileage on your bikes with friends old and 'yet to be discovered'.

Our Highlander and 9-Länder tours are ready and we would like to thank you for your patience. We do make sure every detail is in place before publishing these tours and we had a few extras to arrange prior to putting them online.

9-Länder 2019 is a real treat! We have added a number of extras on top of previous years including a night in COLDITZ itself along with an extended tour of this historic castle. We have added a day off giving you two spare days in this 9-Länder, one in Salzburg where we give you the option of coming with us to visit the stunning Ice Caves followed by a trip up for coffee and cake at Hitlers Eagles Nest and a second day off in the beautiful Czech Republic capital, Prague where our hotel is centrally located for the old town delights.

Highlander 2019 is also published (see link above for our Highlander 2018 promo clip) and we have added 3 extra nights accommodation on top of last years Highlander so you are properly rested before and after your tour. We have included an extra day of riding with chance to explore the Isles of Skye and Raasay plus a wee dram of Whisky or two in some very special locations and it wouldn't be right if we didn't include a cruise on Loch Ness.

A more detailed look at these two tours is included on the links below along with a link to the booking page at Moto Ventura, but please hurry, spaces are already being taken.

Our NY resolution is to get more info and news out to you lovely people so keep your eyes pealed. If you haven't already, like and share us on facebook, twitter and/or instagram.

We have some products to test and review for you and some laughs to share via our live feeds on facebook so look us up and say hi!

See you on the ice!

Motorcycling, a cure for depression?

Motorcycling, a cure for depression?

With all the pressures of modern day living is it any wonder that Mental Wellness is more topical now than ever before

Ask Mental Health professionals about techniques to help alleviate depression and they will state exercise is vital.

I believe exercising the spirit of freedom is as important and motorcycling is one of my remedies for the times when you just need a ‘pick me up’

Motorcycling somewhere exotic and warm is a bonus but the simple act of riding a bike is priceless but caution, it does come at a price.

Possible Cons and their cures.

1 - Sat in the bay window as the rain beats down, looking at the garage door containing your favourite toy.
Cure - A motorcycle DVD. Anything by Nick Sanders, Austin Vince or a ‘Long Way Round’ marathon is good for the soul

2 - Michael Fish drops another clanger and the weather changes while you’re out.
Cure - Be prepared. A good one piece rain suit under a cargo net strapped to the pillion seat and a squirt of de-mister for the visor

3 - Breakdown
Cure - Spend your down-time investing effort and elbow grease into your bike to reduce the chance of breakdown. Learn basic bike maintenance and join a recovery service or have a mate with a truck/bike trailer on speed dial.

4 - All this motorcycling costs money
Cure - eBay, Shpock it, Gumtree. Hunt for bargains. Keywoods such as ‘worn once’, ‘given up biking’, ‘didn’t fit’ or ‘unwanted present’ can all bring a smile to your face and save you a small fortune.

5 - No bike
Cure - Go to a motorcycle dealer with a good cafe, smell some bikes and coffee and even take your licence and helmet for a cheeky ‘test ride’. Who knows, you may be offered a deal you cant resist. Talk to the dealer - they may surprise you!

Likely Pro’s or “smiling side effects”

1 - Improve your skills
2 - Make new mates
3 - Rekindle old friendships
4 - See
5 - Travel
6 - Experience but most importantly;
7 - LIVE LIFE!

Just get on your bike! It’s Spring again, well done! You’ve made it!
