In the Summer 2005 issue of Motorcycle Escape we promised a listing of resources for motorcycle tourers visiting Europe. In this resource guide, you'll find listing of clubs and organizations, motorcycle tour groups, rental sources, tourist agencies, and companies that will ship your motorcycle. In addition there is the test of a power of attorney that you can cut and paste into your word processor, print out and fill out.
