Solution

It is given in the statements, that C cannot travel with A or B. E cannot travel with B or F. G cannot travel with F, or H, or D. By formulating the table we get

Q is with A and G is with Q => G and Q are travelling together on motorcycle M3
F travels on M1 and E travels on M2 motorcycles.
D is travelling with P on M2 => D and E are traveling together on M2
B cannot go with R => F and B go together on M1
Therefore, C and H go together on M4

So, the table can formed as below :

Hence, C would be travelling with H.
