We have 15 Aprilia Pegaso Trails. It’s an ideal bike for touring and off road if required. They are reliable, versatile and easy to handle with plenty of power plus a very comfortable seat and riding position.
Can I bring a pillion?
Yes, we’ll limit the routes to tarmac roads. If we do go on gravel the support truck is in attendance to carry the pillion to safer ground.
Are very welcome! If the Aprilia Trails are too tall for you, we have lowering kits and cut down seats that reduce the ride height, so doing away with the need for long legs.
A First Aid box is carried in both the support truck and tour leader’s bike. All tour leaders are St. John’sAmbulance trained. Sabah has an excellent Air Ambulance Service; also private helicopters are usually on call.
There is a RM1400 deductible clause on our insurance policy and we will charge you for the first RM1400 of any serious damage done to your bike.
Scratches are not considered damage, broken components are.
Your bike is covered by a fully comprehensive, any driver insurance policy. But you are not. Personal accident and travel insurance is essential.
You must bring a current motorcycle license with you and sign a liability waiver on your arrival.
WE WILL NEED TO SEE YOU’RE DRIVING LICENSE! IF YOUR DRIVING LICENCE HAS EXPIRED OR DOES NOT COVER YOU TO RIDE A MOTORCYCLE, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RIDE OUR BIKES.
Travel insurance is compulsory.
What support do we get when we are out on the bikes?
Your team leader is always in attendance. He carries a first aid kit, satellite phone, mobile phone, basic tool kit, puncture repair kit and water.
On some Adventures, or if we are staying away from home base, the support truck will be in attendance with spare bike and your luggage.
What about navigation?
Each day a full briefing will be given before setting off. We run a simple point to point system when out on the road, which has worked very well over the passed 8 years. Towns and villages are few and far between as are cross roads and roundabouts, so navigation is very straight forward.
Can I ride on my own?
Yes of course. Each rider sets their own pace and your guide will be following behind. Points of interest, food, drink stops will be discussed before setting off on each section of the ride, so you can enjoy the road and scenery at your pace.
How tough is the biking?
We describe it as “soft roading”. Most of our roads are tarmac, deserted and offer some of the best biking in the world. There are sections of gravel and occasional land slides to negotiate. These are easily handled on the Pegaso Trails.
Some of our routes incorporate tougher stuff. These are only included on request. Terry is a 65 year old, “Born Again” and Bryan, 5 times British Motocross Champion. Between these two levels of skill there are adventures for everyone!
I may want to take some time off from riding.
This is your Adventure in Paradise, “The Best of Biking with the Best of Borneo”. If you need a day off from biking, just let us know, there are loads of alternative activities and things to see. Most riders that visit, usually ride for 3 days, then have a rest day. The choice is your.
Can I ride my bike in the evening?
No. Company policy is that, for safety reasons, bikes are never ridden after dark.
Will we get mixed in with another group of riders with different ability?
No. Remember, our maximum group size is six. If we get riders of different abilities Bryan will take the hot shots, Terry guides the more dignified riders and we meet up along the way.
