Hi Guys,

Just doing a bit of market research. A friend and I are thinking of setting up a Tour Company in the UK doing bike trips. Looking at great roads, nice hotels and country pubs to stay and eat at, good wine and beer.

Probably aimed at bikers of a certain age (that includes me :-) ) Thinking of routes that would link up Castles, Stately Homes bike meets etc. Mainly in Northern UK as all the best roads are their.

Is their a market for higher end tours like this in the USA? Would include bike hire, hotels, support vehicle, Break fast and dinner etc.

Any feed back would be very helpful, before we spend the kids college funds to set this up....


Cheers

Aren't there a couple of companies doing this already?

Personally, I'd love to tour England/Scotland/Ireland on a motorcycle.

Need good rain gear, though!

Interesting business idea! I think it would be a huge hit, especially for those tourists who don't want to rent a car or ride in a travel bus all day. Good idea!
