It’s always sad to see summer come to a close. But, like with most things in life, there is always some GOOD NEWS to follow that sad news! Offseason pricing for MotoQuest rentals kicks off on October 1. This is the perfect chance to take that weekend trip you’ve been needing, or make the most of a discounted week with just you and the wide open road.
A trip on two wheels is more reasonable than you think. MotoQuest’s fleet of BMW GS and Suzuki V-Strom motorcycles gives you the flexibility to venture off the beaten path, or feel extremely comfortable while on it. We have three rental facilities open during the offseason, including Los Angeles, Portland and San Francisco.
To show you just how affordable a long weekend or a week can be, we put a few example quotes to scan. We can work with you to make sure you get the adventure you want.
3-Days From Los Angeles on a BMW F700GS
7-Days From Los Angeles on a Suzuki V-Strom 650
7-Days From Los Angeles on a BMW R1200GS
3-Days From Portland on a Suzuki V-Strom 650
7-Days From Portland on a BMW F800GS
One of the most amazing parts of renting with MotoQuest is that you get free route consultation with one of our many passionate guides. Our team has been exploring the roads around all three rental facilities for years, and they’ve come up with some of their favorites from our popular Los Angeles rental location.
“Who doesn’t love a themed route!? This is my “Roko’s Wine and Food Lover’s 4 day weekend itinerary.” It starts in LA, dips down into Baja for lobster and wine, a lovely farm to table breakfast, and then back up through SoCal for pie and more wine.”
Day 1: Pick up the motorcycle in Long Beach in the early afternoon. Ride to San Diego, stopping at Swami’s State Beach for the good vibes! Tacos in SD.
Day 2: San Diego, through the Otay Mesa border crossing, to Puerto Nuevo for lobster lunch. Stay in Baja wine country off La Ruta del Vino.
Day 3: Breakfast at La Cocina de Doña Esthela (excellent farm to table meals), ride sweeping curves to Tecate border, and more curves back in the U.S. Pie stop in Santa Ysabel. Drop by Doffo Winery to check out the motorcycle collection and perhaps buy a bottle of wine. Stay in Temecula.
Day 4: Cross the famously twisty Ortega Highway on the way back to Long Beach before returning the motorcycle.
From Brenden Anders:
“Every direction out of LA is honestly good riding. I personally like heading south of the border to Baja. The riding is great to Valle De Guadalupe – Mexico Wine Country, and to San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez. If I didn’t have a long time to ride, Joshua Tree or Big Bear – actually the entire Angeles National Forest is great. The roads are meant to be ridden and the views are incredible.”
The options are endless when it comes to creating your own adventure. What’s even better is MotoQuest also has one of the lowest ONE-WAY relocation fees in the industry. So if you want to start an adventure in Los Angeles and end in Portland, cruising Pacific Coast Highway, the cost will be minimal compared to others in the industry.
At the end of the day, our entire team is passionate about getting riders on two wheels and finding their adventure. So take advantage of their expertise, because there is no better time than now to get out on the road!
MotoQuest Adventures That Are Almost Sold Out!
We guide a lot of adventures throughout the year, but there are some that have gained immense popularity. Below are tours that are either sold out for 2020, or ones that only have a few spots remaining. If you see a sold out trip, we have 2021 dates already posted for all our adventures if you want to get a head start on planning. Which one is the trip you’ve been looking forward to be a part of?
Patagonia End of the Earth Adventure (Southbound)
Who wouldn’t want to say they’ve been to the “End of the Earth?” Motorcyclists from around the world have made this one of our most popular trips of the season. So much so, that we added a Northbound trip to the calendar, leaving mid-February.
American Southwest (Autumn)
The scenic and historical itinerary of the American Southwest has this twice-a-year trip sold out at each shoulder of the riding season. Both spring and autumn tours in 2019 have sold out, and we want to make sure you get a chance to join us in 2020. Our adventure for the spring of 2020 heads out April 5 – April 14, while the autumn 2020 trip takes place October 25 – November 3.
Riding in Japan is always an adventure, and the cherry blossom timing is what draws people into the Japan Three Island. So much so that this trip usually sells out about a year in advance. If you were wanting to discover Japan on two wheels, you can either take a look at our 2021 dates for this adventure, or see if our Hokkaido trip checks all the boxes for you. The Hokkaido trip only had ONE SPOT LEFT, and runs from June 2 – June 14, 2020.
CLOSE TO SELLING OUT
Isle of Man TT/Wales Adventure
Every year the Isle of Man TT/Wales Adventure sells out at least a year in advance. It’s so popular that we even had a large group that was so eager to go last year that they bought a custom tour of the itinerary. With that said, we had two spots open up just last week, but they won’t be available for long. Contact us today to join us in May 2020.
Best of Baja Northbound and Southbound
We do four adventures a year down in Baja, but for 2020 a large group bought up one of the trips. That leaves just three opportunities to join us south of the border, with those coming close to being fully booked. Just picture yourself leaving behind cold temperatures and trading them for warmer views of the Sea of Cortez and the coolest opportunity to pet a whale. Yes, a whale!
Alaska Is Booking Up!
We may have just closed our 2019 season in Alaska, but riders are already making their plans for 2020. Some of our adventures are filling up, including the Best of Alaska (two 2020 date options), Prudhoe Bay (two 2020 date options) and Alaska Backcountry Explorer.
