Come ride America with us on a hired motorcycle from Chicago in the east to Los Angeles on the west coast and Get your kicks on Route 66!

The tour will start in Chicago with a one way hire east/west on the bike of your choice from the Harley Davidson range. If you travel two-up enjoy the luxury and nostalgia of the HD ElectraGlide, for practical comfort over distance or if your roots are more Easy Rider and Peter Fonda then the Road King or Heritage Softail may be more your bag. Or if you want to be Billy Connolly we can even sort a TRIKE for you but only if you are quick - trikes are (predictably) in short supply. Make sure to get your request in early to secure the bike YOU want for this holiday of your dreams!

Good things are better savoured than rushed. So we have planned a sixteen day tour that will take us all the way from Lake Michigan in Chicago across the rivers, plains, mountains, deserts and canyons of eight states and several Indian nations before delivering us on the opposite side of America – overlooking the ocean at the end of Route 66 on Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. 

After two years preparation we completed our first full Route 66 tour back in 2008 and we have been back every year since (COVID notwithstanding) to ride our motorcycles along a road that evokes the real history of the United States of America. Past roadside 'Historic Route 66' motels and diners, the weatherbeaten signs of long-abandoned Drive-in movie theatres, the bizarre sculpture of Cadillac Ranch, gas stations from a bygone era, lattice steel bridges spanning rivers and gulches, Art Deco buildings, broken neon and mile upon mile of authentic Route 66 portland cement.  Its all so evocative – names that log and jog in your memory from childhood films and TV: Pontiac, Bloomington, Arlington, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oatman, Seligman, Kingman, Gallup, Needles, Amarillo, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, San Bernadino, Grand Canyon. You may not know where the places are right now but rest assured, on this trip you will travel through ALL of them. And isn’t that the appeal of this kind of Road Trip? It’s the journey. The experience. And the fact you will be doing all of this on an iconic motorcycle.

We stay faithful to the old road and stop off at various points to meet fascinating personalities who add interesting insights from bygone days. Harley at City Meat Market who puts the flag out for us, Betty at Dot's mini museum whose grandfather rescued many travellers heading West in Model T Fords in the olde days, and on it goes. Characters we meet along the way who will bring the history of Route 66 alive. If you arrive early in Chicago we take you to the Harley Davidson museum in Wisconsin ($75 extra, includes return transport and entrance fee). We organise a helicopter flight for you during our stopover at the Grand Canyon. In St Louis we travel up the Arch for amazing views before heading off to Ted Drewes Frozen Custard Emporium.  Our personalised service also includes a free pick up and meet and greet at Chicago airport to bring you to our Hotel (daytime hours Weds and Friday arrivals). You will be with a group of mostly UK people with similar riding experience some of whom will be visiting America for the first time. We ride with you, explain things to you and if you have any problems or difficulties we are there to help you out.

Take everything in, experience the road fully, be a part of what you find. Re-create for yourself and share with those who travel with you an affection for a time gone by. A time to be rediscovered on the Main Street of America. Welcome to the old road. Welcome to Route 66!
