This is the tour that all bikers dreams of!
Imagine cruising down a deserted highway on a giant motorcycle- right across
America. You will ride through vast deserts, flat prairies where the road disappears like a tiny dot on the horizon, swamps where alligators lie in wait for their prey,giant cities with 10 lane highways in several tiers, and quiet cowboy towns where life stopped 50 years ago. Experience it all firsthand!
The ride across the United States of America is approximately 3,200 miles. This means that each day we will need to ride for over 250 miles to make our final destination on time. There will be early starts and long days, but many breaks along the way will be taken to keep us energized. We aim to arrive at our hotels along the route by between 5 and 6 o’clock each evening.
The route takes us from the Atlantic Ocean in Florida to the fountain of youth in Wakulla Springs, along the white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Louisiana’s swamps, you can take a Boat trip down the Mississippi, visit in New Orleans, see the historic fort at the Alamo, or take the famous “River Walk” in San Antonio.
The endless prairies of Texas, the lawless West with the outlaws of Pecos County, the beautiful underground caves in Carlsbad. Experience the story of Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp in the western town of Tombstone ‘The Town too Tough to Die’. Drive through the Arizona desert where you will see the huge cacti and enjoy the millionaire’s paradise Palm Springs before you reach the Pacific Ocean and the hectic city of Los Angeles, where there will be plenty time for you to do sightseeing if you wish before your journey home.
