Despite these odds, nothing was going to stop me from giving Columbus Inte...

Why we do Social

Today pretty much every business is a ‘social business’. But at Motorbike Trip we don’t want to be like every other business. The reason we do social is the amazing opportunity Facebook, Twitter and Google+ give us to hear directly from our customers anywhere in the world so that we can make our service better every day. It also gives us the ability to share our content with our customers so that (hopefully) they will get something more from Motorbike Trip. Below are three of our most popula...
