From A as in Aberdeen to Z as in Zagreb – the Most Popular Goals and the Longest Trips in the Bikers’ Summer 2015

  • More than 1,200 bikers from all over Europe, as part of the Bikers’
    Summer 2015 initiative by, have given accounts of
    their most popular goals and the longest trips.
  • Valuable prizes for participants: motorcycle tyres and accessories
    for biker adventures to have been won.

HANNOVER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Just in time for the Ascension Day and Whitsun, rising temperatures and
sunny spring weather are encouraging bikers to cruise to exciting and
beautiful corners of the world – bikers are now in the starting blocks
to get on the road as soon as possible. As an inspiration for a
motorbike journey destination it’s worth taking a look at the results of
the “Bikers’ Summer 2015”, the competition and survey by
concerning the most popular goals and longest trips of the previous
year. The survey was carried out by Delticom AG (FWB:DEX), Europe’s
leading internet tyre dealer and its online shops with motorcycle tyres
and accessories in nine European countries. More than 1,200 motorcycle
fans answered three questions about their longest trip, their
destination and the frequency of their motorcycle rides in the summer.
There were prizes worth 1,500 Euro to win: vouchers for motorcycle
tyres, a motorcycle satellite navigation system and a GoPro camera
including a helmet holder.

A look at the trips in 2015 shows that bikers are never at a loss for
ideas, no goal is too far for them, and they don’t avoid exotic places.
All in all, the participants rode more than a million kilometres, which
gave an average of 800 kilometres per person during the main season. The
most popular destination in the biker summer 2015 was France (12%). The
favourites here were, for example, routes along the Côte d’Azur, through
the French Alps or the Pyrenees. France was closely followed by Germany
and Italy (11% each) as well as Spain (10%). Here, the “classic”
destinations such as the Black Forest or the Harz were on the programme,
just as the Dolomites, Lake Garda or Andalusia. Cross-country trips or
even trips across several countries were extremely popular, just as
visits to islands. A quarter (26%) of the bikers mentioned exotic
destinations such as Kenya, Tanzania, Malaysia or Australia. One
additional finding: it is also apparent that motorcycle fans do not miss
any opportunity to get on their machines. Almost half of those who took
part in the survey said they had been on the road on two wheels more
than 30 times in the summer.

“The survey has brought interesting findings with excellent examples.
This demonstrates that for passionate bikers the journey itself is the
reward and that’s why they tend to get very creative”, summarises Oliver
Pflaum motorcycle specialist from
“The results also confirm the motorcyclists’ demand for equipment for
various occasions, riding styles and conditions. For this reason we
stock suitable tyres and accessories for every occasion and every biker.”
