Nothing compares to exploring the open road with the wind in your hair, especially when taking in the beautiful scenery we are lucky enough to have in Cayman. Riding a motorcycle along our island roads provides the opportunity to do just this for many Cayman residents and visitors.
To cater to the needs of this two-wheeling demographic, Cayman Custom Cycles provides a one stop shop, offering service and repairs on all makes and models of motorcycles and scooters, and arranging the import of specific bikes from anywhere in the world.
The shop also sells parts as well as performing custom painting, powder coating and customization for customer bikes. Those looking for something extra special can also order custom builds to be done by the stellar team.
Motorbike training courses
For those who have not yet taken the leap from four wheels to two, and who are looking to get into biking, Cayman Custom Cycles is also the venue for motorcycle training courses, which are run through the Cayman Islands Motorcycle Riders Association. The association offers an 8-hour Basic Rider Course, open to over 17s, which trains people with a Group 1 learner’s permit to achieve a Group 1 full license and ride any bike up to 125cc.
A 10-hour Standard Rider Course is also available, open to over 19s, which allows riders to progress to a Group 1A license and ride any size bike after passing a two hour test. These courses are the only certified courses in Cayman recognized by the Department of Vehicle and Drivers Licensing.
Those who are experienced riders, or who have just taken advantage of the training courses, can enjoy one of two tours offered by Cayman Custom Cycles. A Daily Island tour begins at 10 a.m. and rides to West Bay and then around the island to the eastern districts and back, returning at 2 p.m.
The afternoon tour begins at 2 p.m. and visits East End and North Side. Both tours stop at local attractions en route.
Pillion rides are also available, allowing non-riders to enjoy the fun sitting on the back of the bike being driven by a guide.
