Does anybody have any experience with Central Italy Motorcycle Tours? I'm seriously thinking of signing up for their Classic Tuscany 7 Days tour, either this September or next May.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I don't know them personally and I have never taken a guided tour with anybody, any where.
But there was a very nice 2 part write up in the BMW-MOA ON magazine in April and May 2017. They used "Hear the Road Motorcycle Tours Italy" (http://motorcycletoursitaly.com/) to tour the Tuscany.
As I said I don't know the folks and I have never used them, but the article was very complimentary of the tour company.

Hi Selden, CIMT are a good company, so is Hear the Road. I live in central Italy myself now and know both of them. I have ridden with Enrico (of Hear the Road) and he rents his customer's motorcycles at CIMT, as do I.

Enrico is a wonderful guide and very pleasant person, speaking English very well. I'd check him out first. If he is booked, I'd go with CIMT if their tours appeal to you.

Feel free to contact me personally for any other information on Italy..... I am not guiding myself very much anymore (too busy with other things), but always happy to help !

Not enough people inquired about the CIMT Tuscany tour, so instead we're going on a tour of Amalfi and the southern coasts May 6-13. So far, 4 couples (including my wife and me) are signed up (still room for more). We plan to fly over early to get over jet lag, and take the train up to Florence to stay a few nights at a friend's flat. I've never really ridden in the south, so almost everything will be new for me, and I hope it will be less crowded than Tuscany.

Pam has been studying Italian, and will probably take the lead on interpretation, as I decided to take intermediate Arabic at University of North Georgia this spring, and it's pushing everything else out of my mind. Classes 5 days a week, and prep requires 2-3 hours/day to keep up. My head hurts.

Amalfi coast is fantastic! My wife and I drove it in a rental car about 20 years ago, I am very impressed with Pam and your learning another language - don't think I could possibly to that anymore.

Wow Selden - Looks like an awesome trip. Been many years since I've been out that way, but loved it. Good on you for taking up the language challenge.

Have a great trip!
