Our Dedicated & Passionate Team
Founded by a life long motorcycle enthusiast, naturalist, and nomad, PEGASUS MOTORCYCLE TOURS & CONSULTING was created to fill the need for customized motorcycle tours for those riders looking to have the ultimate adventure. What PMTC offers is entirely personalized tours and/or trip consulting to help bikers make their wildest motorcycle odyssey a reality. The founder, Nikola Bulajic, spent years roaming the earth solo on a KLR650, VFR800, Vstrom1000, etc, docking tens of thousands of miles exploring foreign lands in search of the promise for the most beautiful roads in the world, that so conveniently always happened to be around the next bend, in the distant horizon. An addict for experiences and a lover of the open road, Nik brings his vast adventure touring and guiding experience, 5 language fluency, and a multi-cultural upbringing, to create a unique provider of guiding and consulting services that only first-hand cosmopolitan experience could allow for. His passion for motorcycle adventure touring and motojournalism began as The Pegasus Project, a solo world tour in partnership with The American Cancer Society, and the vast international touring experience is now able to benefit riders who wish to have a truly unique motorcycle touring adventure; those who desire more than what traditional motorcycle tours offer. He has a BA in Intl. Studies and Philosophy from the University of Michigan, an MA from the University of California San Diego in Latin American Studies, and has recently declined admission for graduate studies in Journalism at UC Berkeley in order to pursue his life dream of exploring and sharing the world most awe inspiring roads, on two wheels.

Teaming up with PMTC founder Nik Bulijac is fellow renaissance man Rutherford “Rudy” Thomas. Rudy is a veteran video producer and works as a professional photographer when he’s not blasting about on his BMW GS Adv. Born in semi-rural Michigan, Rudy discovered the thrill of motorcycling at age 5. Clocking over 1k miles on a tiny Honda 50 that first summer. By age 12, he had learned to rebuild the engine on his Yamaha 125 race bike and had bought his first camera. He has almost forty years of riding experience, a racing background, is an award winning photographer and a Moth Grand Slam storyteller. Your once in a lifetime adventure, will be extensively recorded with the latest audio/video capturing technology and NOT from a production crew aboard a van. Rather, it will be produced in high definition by a guy riding next to you on the trail, who may be laughing so loud you can hear it over the sound of the exhaust. This guy really loves to ride! Even though it is our passion to ride, during the tours, his goal is to create engaging documentaries that are as authentic as they are original. He does this for each adventure with an impressive amount of equipment he carries on his bike. Combining his love of motorcycling and his passion for creating inspiring images, Rudy has found his true calling with Pegasus Motorcycle Tours & Consulting.
