Hotels & Dining

Enjoy the comfort and charm of select hotels.

Castello di Pavone

King for a Night…is exactly what you’ll feel like when you arrive at the Hotel Castello di Pavone. This hotel is in an actual, authentic castle. Brimming with history, and completely decorated with period pieces will take you back in time. Overlooking the town of Ivrea, enjoy the views as you stroll the grounds. Better yet, take a guided tour and learn all the secrets of this lovely hotel.

Dining:

You’ll want to try as many of the local specialties of each country and region. From the cheesy comfort of fondue, raclette and tartiflette in France & Switzerland to Schnitzel like only the Austrians know how to do. Of course there’s Italy with so much variety from the fresh vegetables to choice cuts not forgetting pizza and pasta. Who’ll be the top chef of the tour?

Testimonials

“I was just as impressed by the scenery as with the professionalism of the M2 team. They know the best roads to ride and did an excellent job setting us up with comfortable lodging for our group. The hotels were much nicer than expected and the food… The food was the best I’ve experienced in Europe. Not once did we stop to eat at a mediocre restaurant.”

– Steve R.

“I always wanted to go see MotoGP firsthand.  Combining it with a motorcycle trip made it impossible to resist.  The riding was so much fun, I only went to the track for some qualifying and the race.  I really couldn’t believe the number of fans at the race.  I saw a lot of cool things, had great food and met some great people.  Can’t wait to do it again.”

-Bruno A.

BMW f800 GT

BMW f800 GT

Displacement:  798cc Torque:  63Nm /46.5 ft lbs. @5800 rpm
Weight:  213.2 (wet)
Seat Height: Standard:  800mm / 31.5 inches
Low Setting:  N/A
Low Seat Option: N/A
Wheelbase: 1,514mm / 59.6 inches
Options:  ESA electronic suspension, heated grips, luggage & top case.

Review:

BMW appears to have got the balance right with the F800GT. It has just the right blend of sport and tourer for a motorcycle of this size and type.
It also makes a sensible proposition for anyone considering taking up motorcycling for the first time and it even has appeal for the more experienced rider who wants a light, but robust sports tourer that will happily eat up the miles in a no nonsense sort of way.
And where this BMW really scores is you’ll have a lot of fun doing that and just getting out there and riding it.

Review:

“I had forgotten just how much I’d enjoyed this engine.
I held on, grinning, as 163 horses threatened to wrench my fingers from the handlebars.
My knees dug into the tank’s recess, I knocked the Beemer into sixth and tucked in – this is way too easy.”

Review:

The BMW K1300 GT is a Grand Tourer in the true sense of the words. It manages to combine massive performance with supreme practicality and comfort. There are so many bikes out there that don’t handle and ride as well as the BMW K1300GT that are supposed to be ‘sports-focussed’ bikes it’s simply astounding how easy the BMW K1300GT is to chuck around.

Review:

“the BMW R 1200 RT has long been sport touring’s standard-bearer. Designed, built and refined in the shadow of the Alps, the RT name is synonymous with tractable power, intuitive handling and first-rate comfort and wind protection. Its trademark air/oil-cooled boxer twin with shaft drive represents 90 years of BMW design tradition, a setup that has proven to be reliable and popular.”

Review:

In my opinion, these two bikes are by far the most dynamic and full-featured touring motorcycles ever produced. I have always said, often to the surprise of many, that my dream shed of bikes would certainly include a Gold Wing among its numbers. That dream shed often changes, once upon a time there wasn’t a single BMW in it, but now the K 1600 GT joins its Bavarian brothers the R 1200 GS and K 1300 R in the list of machinery that’s managed to steal my heart since BMW has dramatically upped their game in the past few years.

Review:

The S1000XR is an exciting new offering from BMW. The S1000RR Superbike has helped transform the marque from its stodgy, pipes-and-slippers trope to a more robust, high-performance bike brand, and the S1000XR builds on this momentum.

K1600B

BMW K1600B

ENGINE TYPE: Liquid cooled, 4-stroke in-line 6-cylinder engine, four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts, dry sump lubrication
CAPACITY: 1,649 cc
RATED OUTPUT: 160 hp (118 kW) at 7,750 rpm
MAX. TORQUE: 129 lb-ft (175 Nm) at 5,250 rpm
FUEL CONSUMPTION: 41 mpg (WMTC)

SEAT HEIGHT: 30.7″
OPTIONAL SEAT HEIGHT: Low Seat: 29.5″
FUEL TANK CAPACITY: 7.0 gallons

Review:

The engine in the B is supposedly identical to the ones in the K1600 GT and GTL. So even if the Bagger design brief for most manufacturers is relaxed cruising, this bagger can do that, but it can also propel you from corner to corner on tight, twisty backroads, or fast flowing ones, in a way that will leave most baggers sucking its clean, Euro4 emissions as it disappears over the horizon.

Valve clearance (intake): KALT 0,10-0,17 MM
Valve clearance (exhaust): KALT 0,34-0,41 MM

Review:

The result has improved the already class leading GS in almost every aspect. The engine is a measurable step forward right through the rev range yet retains its boxer character. It looks cleaner and neater, is more comfortable and sophisticated and handles better too.

Review:

On the open road, the RT motors along with the same soothing, low-frequency engine thrum that has endeared BMW’s opposed twins to so many riders for so long. Rolling open the ride-by-wire throttle at practically any rpm, though, results in strong, linear torque and deceptively quick acceleration
