    PORTUGAL Motorcycle Rentals and Tours

    Hello All,

    Being inmates here for almost 10 years, it is about time we open a Vendor thread!

    Motoxplorers is a small company based in Lisbon, Portugal. It is owned by 5 travel companions, I believe all of us inmates here. Here in ADVrider you may have come across this very nice thread by one of our partners Cazevedo . We have a legal certification as a rent-a-bike company which is given by Portuguese Transport Authorities (License nr: 129/2010 IMTT) and we are certified by the Portuguese National Tourist Office (licence nr 2242011). We're very conveniently located 6 kms West of Lisbon airport and 5 km North of the historical centre.

    We rent a fleet of BMW motorcycles (F650GS, R1200GS and R1200GS Adv) all equipped with top and side cases (included in the rental prices). We allow unlimited miles with no extra charge, our insurances cover most of Europe. <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/40075350">Check small promo video here</a> .

    Portugal may be a very nice start/end point for a tour around Europe, we have great roads and landscapes and an incredible historical heritage. Because of all that, we also developed a few tours in Portugal and Spain. We sell these in various formats: you can simply rent us a bike, a Garmin GPS loaded with all the tour's Points of Interest, you can have us deal with hotel reservations for the whole trip or you can join a group on a guided tour. Check here a nice article on BMW MC Mag about one of our tours.

    Visit our webpage and feel free to contact us for advice on how to tour our little corner of the world.

    This looks like a great place to start for a nice trip in Portugal, Spain and beyond.

    Good luck. I hope you have much success!

    Well, our attention to this thread is in line with our toned-down marketing :D, sorry for that, we've been busy!

    A lot of stuff happened meanwhile... here's a condensed update.

    Motoxplorers has moved its location in Lisbon, we are now even closer to the airport and the city center and have better conditions to provide your tour start

    We have thousands of pictures in our smugmug, if you're looking for travel inspiration, don't miss it. Our website is an ongoing job, but worth a visit if you're thinking about a visit to Portugal, Spain or dreaming with one of our tours abroad. And we also have a facebook account that we try to keep updated. We are still a small company of motorcycle travel nuts, don't forget to mention your ADVRider affiliation if you do contact us - we'll try our best to provide some help!
