Wicked Motorcycle Tours in Bolivia, South America

Hi all,
I’m in the process of starting a motorcycle adventure company in Bolivia, South America. I’m a New Zealander living in Bolivia with my Bolivian wife and our 3 young children and it has always been my dream to offer motorcycle tours in this incredible country.
But it is not just tours we offer - the company has been set up to offer everything from simple advice right through to fully catered tours where all you need to do is show up with your riding gear in hand. We can help you plan your own trip with your own bike, sell you routes that take you to all the key spots, custom make a tour for you and your buddies and even supply a support vehicle if you require one.
We currently have a number of fully catered tours running in 2011 with space still available. We believe that true adventure travel is about getting off the beaten path and experiencing a different culture, not just following the gringo trail. But don’t worry, we will ensure you still see all the key tourist sites - we just use our local knowledge to take you on some of the best, lesser known roads to get there.
Please visit our site Endurotours | Bolivia Bound to discover the full list of what we offer. I’d really appreciate any feedback from fellow ADV riders on what we offer, the site in general and anything else.
Thanks for taking the time.

Thanks Reverse for both promoting a competitor and wishing me all the best at the same time.

There is a key difference between what Maarten and i offer. Bolivia Bound is focused on helping motorcycle riders achieve their dream of riding in Bolivia, and even South America, whatever that dream may be. If you just want to rent some bikes - i can help, if you want advice on a good route to take - i can help, if you want to go your own way but need a 4x4 support vehicle - i can help, if you have a group of mates and want a customised tour - i can help. And like Maarten, i have some some pre-arranged tours in place for anyone who wants to join in with minimum hassle.

Bolivia Bound's speciality is in customising its service to the client's needs.

Perhaps you should give us a shot!

Cheers

Sorry man, didn't mean to rain on your announcement. I have removed the link.

I'm still amazed there are now two adventure touring companies in Bolivia. I guess I didn't realize how adventure riding has taken off.

Ok, been a bit quiet on ADV rider for a while but that is set to change. Bolivia Bound is charging ahead with new prices (the best value motorcycle tours in Bolivia no less), recently added routes, a change of 4x4 support vehicle - goodbye Land Rover Defender, hello Nissan Patrol, loads of new videos, and we've even had a glowing magazine review.

We have three great tours coming up in the near future: Southwest Circuit in April, Backblocks Blast in May and Amazon Ambush in June.

You'll be seeing (hearing) a lot more from us in the near future. But if you are interested in hearing more about any of the above trips, or customising a trip to your needs and calendar, please pm me or email me: cory@boliviabound.net

Lets Ride!

Cory runs a great tour company as well. I was very close to booking my trip this year but a few big things came up at the last minute. Next year!

One thing I think sets BBMA apart is that they have the BMW f800GS.
