Jim’s comments after the Viking Run:
Ron - The trip rating - an A+.I repeat - an A+.
I don't even know what I paid for this thing......I know it was a chunk of change, and I know it was accurate billing from you folks, and I know I could go back and tally up what it all cost.....adding in your fees, the ATM withdrawals, AmEx/Visa charges, etc.....but truth is - whatEVER it cost me, it was totally worth it. And - even with the cost of the new BMW I'm gonna HAVE to buy now that I'm back home (the local BMW sales rep should pay you a commission!)....the value I got, the money spent vs. the experiences/memories - definitely worth it!
Jim’s comments after the Spanish Switchback Challenge:
My first tour was Viking Run - an absolutely incredible motorcycle trip with great folks, through amazing parts of Europe, and via Ayres' top-rate guides, support, facilities & organization. The value for my $$$ earned an A+ grade...almost impossible to explain the beauty, excitement and camaraderie...I'm still talking about it! Absolutely, positively WORTH the time & money to experience. I liked that trip so much, I booked another....the Spanish Switchback Challenge. Again, Ayres hit a home run with the trip location, guide, accommodations, and the VALUE of the trip. Mastering the twists & turns along the coast of Spain is something every rider should experience. Now on the books for me is one of Ayres' newest trips - Ireland - and the anticipation of another awesome experience. Adding Ayres' trips has been such an excellent addition to my local & US motorcycling - anyone giving thought to taking a trip with Ayres should do so, immediately...sign up, climb on, and enjoy the ride!
Congratulations, John, on sustaining the Ayres biz, employing top-rate guides, keeping the process fun & easy (thanks Shirley), and delivering great value for the $$$.
