IMTBike ROUTE rating

It is essential to know the different skill levels needed to participate in the IMTBIKE TOURS that are offered to you. IMTBIKE makes sure that it offers different tours for all riding styles and levels. The IMTBIKE team always works diligently in designing our routes. This is a laborious process which entails reviewing all road choices before selecting the best option for an IMTBIKE tour.

The most experienced motorcyclists looks for roads that require technical skill; narrow twisty roads with little traffic and endless curves. But these same roads would be too difficult for a less experienced rider.

The local driving habits, the amount of traffic, the asphalt quality and the radius of the curves vary considerably from country to country and even in different regions of the same country. They will also vary depending on the season of the year. All of these factors have been studied by IMTBIKE and have been taken into consideration when rating our tours.

IMTBIKE thinks it is also important to know about the different types of roads you will be enjoying on your tour. To understand the road types easier, IMTBIKE has divided them into two categories, and we have calculated an approximate percentage of each on all of our tours.

  1. TOURING ROADS: These are wider roads comprised mainly of larger radius sweepers. They are still curvy roads but not tight mountainous twisty curves. Please remember that you will ride very few straight roads on IMTBIKE tours!
  2. CHALLENGING ROADS: These are roads that are tight twisty turns which require more technical skill. Many times they will be narrower roads without a shoulder and sometimes with steep inclines or descents. Normally they will be mountainous roads accompanied by spectacular sceneries.

If you have never ridden a motorcycle outside of your country, or if you have little experience riding on mountain roads with many curves, we recommend that you choose a tour rated moderate or intermediate. If you have any questions or doubts please do not hesitate to call or email us. We are always happy to answer your questions to make sure that you choose the best tour for your riding level.

Moderate

This route offers wider sweeping turns that are easy to maneuver. This route may have some tighter turns in a few places but this will be the exception. Regardless, even on moderate tours you must be able to ride a large cylinder motorcycle in any condition. Never plan to learn how to ride a motorcycle on an IMTBIKE tour. We recommend having a minimum of 8.000 km (5.000 miles) of experience riding a large cylinder motorcycle to participate on a MODERATE rated IMTBIKE Tour and you should ride a motorcycle on a regular basis at home.

Intermediate

This route rating can have sections of very twisty curves on narrow roads with no center line to divide the road. There will also wider radius curves on these routes. Traffic conditions can be intense at times in some urban environments and the local driving habits may seem aggressive and unpredictable to you. It is imperative that you are an experienced motorcyclist. We recommend that you have a minimum of 12.000 km (7500 miles) of large cylinder motorcycle experience to participate on a INTERMEDIATE rated IMTBIKE Tour and you should ride a motorcycle on a regular basis at home.

Advanced

This route rating has long sections of technical narrow twisty roads and sometimes single lane roads. These twisty roads will often be in mountains where steep inclines and descents will be commonplace. Some riding days can be long and challenging. Traffic conditions can be intense at times in some urban environments and the local driving habits may seem aggressive and unpredictable to you. It is imperative that you are a very experienced motorcyclist on a large cylinder motorcycle. We recommend that you have a minimum of 16.000 km (10.000 miles) of large cylinder motorcycle experience on an ADVANCE rated IMTBIKE Tour and of course you should ride a motorcycle on a regular basis at home.

IMTBIKE Average Daily Riding Hours

5 to 7 hours
6 to 8 hours
7 to 9 hours

How many hours a day you ride on a tour is important information in helping you decide on the right IMTBIKE tour for you. Some tour members want to ride as many hours as possible everyday, while others prefer to stop more frequently and dedicate more time to enjoying the scenery, visiting cultural sights and arrive at the hotel earlier to relax before dinner. The daily riding hours are calculated including the coffee breaks and photo stops but they do not include the time taken for lunch.

Normally we’ll start our riding day at 9:30am and we will take about a one hour lunch break sometime between 1pm and 2pm. So if the daily riding hours for a given tour are 5-7, then you will arrive at the hotel between 3:30pm- 5:30pm depending on the average speed of the group.

  • This was a great tour, my first with IMTBike but definitely not the last. The guides were fantastic and the riders couldn’t have been friendlier or more interesting. It was a diverse group with lots of adventures and experiences to share. Morocco was fascinating and I would love to go back again. I was a bit apprehensive due to the differences in religion and culture, but the tour was so well planned that there were no difficulties or hassles. These guys know how to lay out a tour!! Attention to details makes all the difference... I think that Scott and his team at IMTBike offer a tremendous service to adventuring motorcyclists.

    Tour Marruecos

  • This was not our first guided motorcycle tour experience, so I had some idea of what to expect. However, I must say that the IMTBike Morocco Tour was beyond our expectations. The tour guides were masters of planning and logistics, the accommodations were perfect, and the IMTBike staff went out of their way to ensure we all had a great time. The Morocco experience was, at times, like being in an alternate reality; it was so different from Ohio. I refer to the blue village of Chefchaouen, the narrow passageways and vendor stalls in the ancient medinas, the dry and sandy world of the desert, and the lush green world of date palms in the oasis. And then there was the riding! Twisty mountain passes, desert riding, and big sweepers with panoramic views. Besides being immersed in these landscapes, we enjoyed meeting the gracious people of Morocco and learning about their history and culture.
    Scott, Chano, and Roger—you are the best!

    Morocco Adventure Tour - Thank you

  • Thank you Scott and Chano for an amazing adventure! The IMTBike team was outstanding from start to finish on our Moroccan tour. The varied terrain of Morocco made for an unbelievable ride... whether climbing through the switch backs of the Atlas Mountains, enjoying the beautiful sweeping roadways on the plateaus, navigating the hectic roundabouts of the major cities or surviving a Saharan sandstorm! The scenery and countryside was awe inspiring and there was never a dull moment... Can’t wait for the next tour... Thanks again!

    Morocco Tour - Amazing Adventure

  • Had a fantastic trip to Morocco, the tour was well run and our guides Roger and Mikel were well organised and also great fun. The bikes were all in excellent condition and the hotels fantastic. The tour was very comprehensive, taking in the main sights of Morocco, of course I could have stayed longer particularly in Marrakesh and the desert, but as I only had two weeks it did the job admirably. My particular highlight - quad bikes in the dunes – it’s a must do for the day!!! Well done IMTBike. I shall be back next year.

    Morocco Adventure Tour

  • Dear bikers I would like to share with you my impressions about the trip to Morocco on by IMTBike, which by the way made my dream of riding in Africa become true. Morocco is full of wonders and contrasts that are worth exploring. The IMTBike guides made all the difference due to their deep knowledge of the local customs, best roads and spots. They had a genuine concern whether we were enjoying or not the ride and did not save efforts to make sure that we were having a good time. IMTBike and staff are very professional and the least that I can say is to recommend their services to those that wish to experience a great bike tour.

  • Acabo de regresar del tour Marruecos Aventura.
    Querría agradecer a Scott y Javi por tan magnifico viaje.
    Marruecos es un destino increíble. Desde las dunas del Sahara a montar en camello un día hasta atravesar las montañas del Atlas con nieve al siguiente. Increibles carreteras de montaña, naturaleza y energía.
    Scott y Javi han sido de la mejor compañía: Siempre pendientes de todo, aportando mucho conocimiento y muy divertido. Gran aventunra. ¡ Hasta la próxima!

    Scott and Javi were the best of company: on top of things, knowledgeable, and fun!

  • Scott and Javi are superb guides. I was taken to places and shown things that I never would have done or found on my own. Thank you both again. The entire group was amazing and with representation from six countries around the world the discussions and exchange of ideas was quite enlightening. I have made many new friends. Beautiful scenery, great food, exciting experiences, what else could you ask for?

    Morocco Adventure Tour

  • We did the 9-day Moroccan Adventure tour on October and it was the most exotic experience I've ever had. If you want to take a break from our Western values, (and want to buy a quality rug for cheap) look no further than Morocco. This was my second tour with IMT Bike, the first was 13 years ago. The company has grown steadily since, becoming very polished in its swag department -- presenting a very detailed spiral bounded Tour Book, maps and extras. Great service all-around, great choice of roads, properties, stop points, restaurants and sight seeing. As a tour organizer myself, I was happy to let IMT do all the leading. I would never venture a trip to Morocco alone; IMT knows the languages spoken, the best roads and the best guides. I will never forget this experience. Where else are you going to "enjoy" a camel?
