Kensington Tours is debuting a new series of experiences for 2011 - private guided tours that invite travelers to explore exotic destinations by motorcycle. The company is organizing seven tours, including a nine-day excursion through Chile and Argentina that includes routes along coastal rain forests, volcanoes and lakes (from $4,750). An eight-day Kenyan motorcycle safari includes a ride to the Masai Mara National Reserve, where travelers will journey into the bush to spot elephants and other wildlife (from $4,088). Sorry, Harley fans, Kensington's tours include use of a BMW or Ducati bike. Consolation: Rates include accommodations, airport transfers, many activities and most meals.
