Motorcycling in Europe

Road trips are great, but making small talk for hours on end, and arguing over who missed the turnoff 20 miles back, can tax any relationship. That's where motorcycles come in. Adriatic Mototours, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, will set you up with a bike, a GPS, and an amazing route through the wide-open roads and tricky mountain passes of eastern and central Europe (this is not a trip for first-time riders). There are 13 customizable itineraries: The Slovenia Dolomite tour, for example, suggests three days in the Italian mountains with a trip through Slovenia's Julian Alps. But if you want to add some time on the Croatian coast, no problem. The company takes care of all your hotel reservations and provides 24-hour emergency support. Guided group tours are also available (and perhaps best for the directionally challenged); the 11-day Czech Austria circuit makes two daylong pit stops in Prague and Vienna and will test your turning radius on the hairpin-riddled Grossglockner Pass, one of the highest roads in the Alps.
