Anyone used Perumoters?

I've gotten back from a ride to Panama in Oct/Nov. and now considering flying to Peru to see what I really want most to see in SA. A tour company named Perumoters has an 11 day ride that covers the Cusco, Titicacca, Colca Canyon area and sounds reasonable cost wise. Has anyone done a "tour" ride before? I think I had my "adventure" getting to Panama. It might be nice to take it easy for one ride. http://www.perumotors.com/

Peru moto tours

I haven't used Peru Motors, but I can vouch for Peru Moto Tours out of Cusco. There address is: http://perumototours.com

It's owned by Alex Luna. He's a great guy who helped me find a new rim for my F650 Dakar last December. They rent bikes and offer limited guided tours. Bikes are new and excellently maintained. I rented a Honda Falcon 400 for a few days--no problems,. Highly recommended. Let me know if you need any other info. I'm now in Mendoza, Argentina headed west.

question

gpot
I went to the link you provided and after looking, couldn't find reference to "Perumoters" tour company. Did you get that info from e-mail? I just couldn't find anything unless I just missed it. Thanks

See end of post #28

"We used a tour-organizer for this trip. They rented us the bikes, set up the lodging, and sent along a poor chap to carry inner tubes, and put up with our American bullshit. Our tour guide is a Dutch guy, and didn´t have a map, or carry much in the way of tools, but was a great guy to ride with. He had ridden much of the route, and knew the best places to get a drink, or a bite to eat. Our whole trip (excluding airfare) was around $2000 for bikes, lodging, gas, connections (trains, busses, etc) for 16 days. Not a bad deal. (www.perumotors.com) Where was I?"
