THE STORY BEHIND NOMADIC KNIGHTS

I’m Alex Pirie, your motorcycle guide for the tours and I am the founder of Nomadic Knights. Growing up in Scotland, I used to dream of a different life, a life which could combine my passion for motorcycles, my love of adventure and all things mechanical. People thought I was crazy.

But throughout all the years of learning my trade as a motor mechanic, getting involved in motorcycle racing and even holding the position of Managing Director for a telecoms company, that dream never left me. I couldn’t help feeling that there was so much more to life. Nomadic Knights is the result of that passion.

I fell under the spell of my beautiful Indian wife and relocated to India in 2008. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Now I spend my days sharing the history and treasures of these fascinating countries with people who want to meet themselves on the road and discover their own piece of heaven. I’ve taken hundreds of people with me on our motorcycle adventures – the holiday of a lifetime – riding and exploring from the snow capped Himalayas in the very north to the shimmering beaches of the Arabian Sea in the south.

Everyone is changed by adventure. Some have laughed, a few have cried, most have come back for more… will you join us for the ride of your life?

WHY CHOOSE NOMADIC KNIGHTS FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE

If you are completely comfortable with your daily routine and don’t like surprises, our motorcycle adventure tours are probably not for you. If, on the other hand, you have a zest for life, love to ride a motorcycle and relish experiences that take you out of your comfort zone, I’m sure we’ll meet before long.

Adventure travel can be unpredictable, sometimes risky and always exciting. Only sign up if you’re ready to embrace life. If you do decide to join us, here’s what you can expect: Every day you’ll rise to the challenge of a fresh great adventure and potential new friendships. You’ll explore some of the most dramatic and inspiring places this planet has to offer, traversing deep rainforests, alpine valleys and desert plains.

Your journey will take you from the shoreline of the Arabian Sea to the edges of the world’s highest roads. Sometimes you’ll feel the sand between your toes, and at others you’ll be knee-deep in mud.

You’ll rest your weary, happy body in mountain lodges, jungle retreats, desert camps, ancient forts, tiger reserves, colonial tea plantations and grand palaces.

And you’ll smile… a lot.
