MCi Tours are offering a "self guided" 5 day trip to the Mosel Valley, http://www.mcitours.com/S04/2/Germany-M ... html#thumb, choose your own dates.

Having read the text, I'm certain that the hotel used is, Hotel zur Post in Klotten, http://www.hotelzurpost-klotten.de/en/m ... hotel.html

Have stayed there twice & visited on another two occasions. Klaus is a great host, the food is fantastic. Easily accessible from the UK with great roads to ride locally. Got some routes from previous trips.

Mc tours seem expensive.  £900 for rider and pillion for 4 nights B & B and a ferry crossing.  I manage to do 5 nights all half board for only £190 more.

I went on their Motorrad Days to Garmisch in 2012.  Great fun and well organised.  About twice the price of any other tour though as I paid £2200 and except for a meal in a tent on one night it was all B & B. There wasn't much guided runs going on that I recall.

£220 per night for dinner, bed & breakfast per couple sounds a lot of money.

Two wheels and a motor!  There's 7 of us staying in Killarney with our motorbikes for a week.

We rented this for £600ish, and the ferry was only £75 each on a group rate.

We'll make up our own ride outs.

£218 to be precise but that includes all the other extras not just the hotel and crossing. Makes it over mc tours a free 3 course dinner every night and £7 beer money.  Think the BMW one was about £315 a night, must have been mad.

This is the route we took around Ireland in 2013, very similar to the Falcon Motorcycle Tours trip.

With this Falcon Motorcycle Tour of Ireland being "self guided", the dates may be flexible, could be worth asking the question if the 11th - 15th June is no good,
