About us: Team


Together with other like-minded riders Sergey Borodin and Marat Buzubaev formed the SilkOffRoad motorcycle club back in 2003.
The club was born out of a love for motorcycling amongst members and in particular to share riding experiences and travel within Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. 
The club was a great success and was instrumental in promoting much of the Central Asian region as an adventure motorcycling destination for its members. 

For Sergey and Marat SilkOffRoad was not only a motorcycle club. 
To them SilkOffRoad Motorcycle Tours was an obvious step forward & has to them been like a child conceived and born in their free and wild minds whilst riding the boundless roads of spacious Kazakhstan and nursed by their experience and uncontrollable desire to travel which they wanted to share with riders from around the world.

Now SilkOffRoad Motorcycle Tours is a successfully developed company in Central Asia. Their vast experience and knowledge of the local region has made the company a leader in the motorcycle tours sector. 
The company has a fleet of motorcycles and cars as well as employees in several major cities of Central Asia such as Almaty, Tashkent, Dushanbe and Bishkek.  
SilkOffRoad Motorcycle Tours also cooperates with motorcycling tour operators from other countries, receiving and serving guests from all over the world. 
SilkOffRoad management have a continuous improvement program resulting in new and interesting motorcycle tours within Central Asia whilst ensuring comfortable accommodation along the tour routes.
There is a strong focus on providing motorcycles and support vehicles that are always in quality condition with replacements purchased as required to ensure reliability at all times.
