European Motorcycle Adventure Tours

Beach's Motorcycle Adventures - touring on BMWs since 1972!

It's a mindset; about looking down, rather than up, about seeing the world from the perspective of a hawk, about climbing, up and over, the most amazing mountains.

It's passion - for curves, undulations, and pavement heading to indescribable views.

It's curiosity to see what is around the next corner, and over that mountain.

It’s power, speed and control, movement through a new world, a new reality.

It’s freedom and discovery.

It's what we help you do.

45 Years of Alpine Experience

The crew at Beach's Motorcycle Adventures are celebrating their 45th year touring the European Alps!

The changes that have taken place in the Alps over 4½ decades are significant.

More significant are the things which haven't changed. Beach's is the company which has always set the standard. By focusing on a few superb destinations we are able to offer tours truly a cut above those of the competition. We don't aim to be the World's largest touring company - only the World's best.

These fascinating Alpine bike and sports car road-trips beckon to the rider and driver with combinations of mountains, scenery and roads that amaze!

Each evening our superb accommodation wraps up the day with comfort and service well beyond what is expected. Join us in the mountains of Europe for the world's best motoring!

All European tours are personally conducted by Rob & Gretchen Beach and their excellent team.

Rob completed his 150th tour in the 2012 touring season, and was interviewed by the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America. Here is the interview:

Sicilian Sojourn

When one thinks of stunning views of the sea, few places in the world outshine Sicily and the Amalfi coast. Italy’s coastal mountains and limited space require devilishly serpentine roads. Combine this with a Mediterranean climate and you have a locale that is simply perfect for a motorcycle ride. . . more

Italian Idyll

One could run through the alphabet and find phrases and descriptions - beginning with each of the 26 letters - that personify the wonderful country that is Italy. In an effort to bring this specialness to the fore, we have a delightful itinerary that is wholly Italian. The Regioni of Italy are comparable to the states in the U.S.A., and on the Italian Idyll we explore five: Toscana, Marche, Umbria, Lazio and Abruzzo. . . more

Classic Alpine Adventure

The European Alps are, very simply, the most magical place in the world to ride motorcycles.
