I was flipping through some pamphlets on the ferry last weekend and I need someone to explain what I was missing. A typical 7-day guided tour runs about $5000 . I don't want to buy the bike I want to ride it somewhere and see something interesting.
Now this is heading to typical touristy places. You want to head somewhere exotic you're going to be paying through the nose.
The pamphlet was put back without a second though expected but it got me wondering - has/would anyone on this forum fork out that kinda cash on a guided tour? With $5000 and some planning one could travel to any corner of North America and back all in so I'm trying to get my mind wrapped around the cost.
If no-one on this forum would break the bank for a guided tour then who can? At those on guided tours dedicated "real" riders or armchair weekend warriors rolling in cash that want to play the part.
I'm sure the tours are wonderful, the guides wonderful, the accommodations... accommodating but if a casual will pay this much for a one-week tour I'm in the wrong business
If you have traveled somewhere and rented a bike how was your experience?
