Manual motorbikes are the best way to travel for a backpackers for a number of reasons. The simplest of which are…

  • They are more fun to drive
  • The fuel tank is larger so you can travel further and fill up less
  • They are easier to repair and sell

If you can drive the bike well then you will be able to get up hill much better and will therefore keep your bike in better condition for when you sell it

If you are not sure if you can ride a manual bike then when you come we will provide you with some free driving lessons to see if you are able to drive it.

If you can then it is recommended that you get one of these, if we don’t think you can or you are not confident then we can look at trying you out on a semi-automatic.
