Riding your own bike on our Cape York Motorcycle Tour

We welcome you riding your own bike on our Cape York Motorcycle tour. Your bike must be street legal with visible number plate, hand guards, in good mechanical condition, well muffled, fitted with good tyres with heavy duty tubes and a long range fuel tank.

You will also be responsible for any maintenance along the way and must have all your spares and tools with you. Spare parts include, tubes, levers, spark plugs, chains, bearings, brake pads, oil, tools etc.

There are a number of things to take into consideration.

This means you need to weigh up these factors more closely and make the call whether or not to take your own bike or use one of ours.

  • cost involved of bringing your own bike to using one of ours
  • security and insurance of your bike
  • bike maintenance and lugging all your spare parts
  • extreme wear and tear to your bike.

North Queensland Trail Bike Adventures provide current model Suzuki DRZ400E bikes that are suitable for this type of terrain and in good mechanical condition and take the stress out of you having to worry about the wear and tear on your bike and repairs along the way and concentrate more on having the adventure holiday of a lifetime.

We highly suggest that you use our current model Suzuki DRZ400E instead of your own bike when on tour as it is definitely the best way to go as you preserve your bike from the harsh wear and tear and whatever costs involved in getting here and return.

Our bikes are regularly serviced before, during and after each ride to ensure maximum performance as we have all the parts and tools available on hand and no need for you to carry extra parts for break downs thereby freeing up your time from maintenance issues so that you can relax after each days challenging ride, enjoying the company and local surrounds, safe in the knowledge that you will have the time of your life on a fully serviced trail bike with North Queensland Trail Bike Adventures.

A simple breakdown on your own bike, e.g., radiator collapsed bearing or lost sprocket nut could render your bike out of action for the remainder of the trip and freight costs home.

Thinking you save money on a Cape York Motorcycle tour cost is really false economy, however the choice is totally yours 🙂
