TERMS AND CONDITIONS
SCOPE OF SERVICE
Chrome Thunder, LLC (“Chrome Thunder”) offers a highly inclusive package. We will make every necessary arrangement for the journey rider’s convenience and pleasure, including, for example, securing optional travel arrangements such as visas, airport/hotel transfers, motorcycle rentals/insurance emergency roadside services, daily fuel and cleaning, onboard beverages and snacks, en route photography sessions, select adventure activities, park entry fees and lodging/camping expenses.
Upon arrival journey riders will receive custom expedition shirts, riding vest, detailed itinerary, maps, brochures and other related travel information. Chrome Thunder will equip the journey rider requesting such service with a detailed map or GPS pre-programmed with routes and destination so that individuals or small teams can detach from the main group for short intervals.
At the onset of each journey, we will host a welcome dinner reception the night before departure. This will enable the riders to meet each other and their journey escorts as well as to brief the group on journey rules and regulations. While en route, we will provide a group breakfast for all members. This will be an opportunity to discuss the days ride, the attractions and group interests.
For the spirit of allowing individual freedom and space, lunches and dinners will be up to each rider. Chrome Thunder will provide a list and description of nearby restaurants. Tour pricing includes the capacity for each journey escort to buy lunch or dinner for individuals and small groups on a random basis when appropriate.
Journey escorts will assure that each journey rider’s motorcycle is clean and fueled at the beginning of each days ride. Also, since each day makes stops at roadside views and rest areas, we will provide quality snacks and beverages. These stops will also allow a chance to rest, take photos and learn of the local geology, culture and lore. Journey escorts will be familiar with the unique landscapes and histories of the specific areas they travel.
Chrome Thunder requires all journey riders to have a valid motorcycle endorsement on their driver’s license and, more importantly, satisfactory evidence that the rider accurately rides on a routine basis, can handle large touring motorcycles and has experience riding long distances.
The services and other items included in the tour package include the following: Harley Davidson Motorcycles with a lessee insurance policy; accommodations, professional guides, food and beverages as described above, select spa and adventure activities, support vehicle.
ITEMS NOT INCLUDED IN TOUR PACKAGE
The services and items not included in the tour package: maintenance costs for guest owned motorcycles, insurance coverage other than the motorcycle lessee policy, airfare, and tips. You are also responsible for some meals, recreation and entertainment not described in the journey itinerary.
