We are planning a European tour next year in Austria, Slovenia, Croatia. 2 up on a 1200GS or RT1200.
Do people bring all their own riding gear from North America ?

I have been on two tours with Edelweiss, "Best of Europe" and "Rome to Sicily". They were expensive, but they were very well run. All the hotels were nice, all the restaurants were good, everything was on time, etc. I'm sure there are cheaper options but you get what you pay for IME.

I've used Edelweiss a number of times and they are GOOD. Ayers also is good, although I have only used them in South America. If you are willing to do a bit of pre-planning you will find that renting a bike and "self-guiding" is a reasonable alternative to going with a tour group.

Bring your own gear. Some companies rent equipment, but fit and hygiene won't be the same as having your own.

Ive never considered using a tour company but I see the benefits (no hiccups, support, camaraderie with a group). Going it alone a few times allowed me the freedom to improvise. The tradeoff was not having a group to drink beer and bench race with, and yes, I missed that.
Edelweiss has been doing this for a very long time. You can't go wrong with them. They can control everything except the weather, and even that they probably have workarounds for. Enjoy!
