For our one-way tours, Tour1 has partnered with We Move Bikes (WMB), the UK’s premier motorcycle shippers. WMB ship the Harley-Davidson demonstrator bikes to all of the main main European H-D and HOG rallies in their very special trucks on purpose-made cradles that fully protect the motorcycles.
As a follow up to this work, a few years ago, WMB also started moving customer bikes to or from the events and it is this service that we are proud to partner with.
Take a look at the two videos below that show how they do this!
The cost of shipping your motorcycle back to the UK is already included in the Tour1 prices. The cost of insurance for shipping your motorcycle back is additional.
The WMB operation is very slick and professional. For our one-way tours, on the Sunday morning at the end of the rally, we deliver our motorcycles to the WMB compound and they place your motorcycle onto one of their custom made motorcycle cradles, load it onto one of their trucks and drive it back to the UK. We then fly back home and a few days later, we collect our motorcycles from one of a couple of locations (usually London and Gloucester).
Helmets can be shipped back with your bike. Most riders also leave waterproofs and other non-essential items in their panniers. If you motorcycle does not have panniers, a small bag can usually be shipped back with your bike.
As you would expect, your motorcycle is fully insured while in transit and WMB take great pride in looking after your bike.
When you book your tour with us, we will provide you with the information you need to provide for the shipping back of your motorcycle. As with everything we do, we try to make this as simple as possible for you.

I would just like to thank you Paul and your staff for the excellent service you provided when I attended the 110th Anniversary celebrations over in Rome this year. From the initial conversations we had, right up until we said good bye on the Monday we flew home, I was very impressed and more than happy with the way you took my Harley over to Rome and then returned it. I would not hesitate in using your services again and would strongly recommend WMB to my friends who are going abroad with their bikes next year. John Chalker
The road trip to Rome was amazing, but also knowing my bike was in safe hands for the return made it even better, great service! Andy Moore
That’s the fourth year in a row that I have used WMB to ship my Harley back from European HOG rallies and I have to say they are simply amazing! I have watched them load and unload the bikes, it’s so clinical it borders on OCD. They even went out of their way to help me clean my bike when I arrived at the 110th Harley Celebrations in Rome with special products they have! Oliver Achkar
