Day 1 : Las Vegas
Upon arrival in Las Vegas today you'll transfer to the hotel, and pick up your Harley Davidson in the afternoon. Meet the tour guide at the hotel according to your arrival information. After an orientation and introduction session, you are free to explore the sights and sounds of Las Vegas on your own..
Day 2 : Mammoth Lakes
Distance: 315 miles
Today your adventure truly begins. From Las Vegas we head
west and our ride will take us across Death Valley – the hottest place on earth.
It’s almost entirely devoid of shade and its sculpted rock layers form deeply
shadowed, eroded crevices at the foot of sharply silhouetted hills, their exotic
mineral content turning ancient mudflats into rainbows of sunlit iridescence. We
will have an early lunch at Furnace Creek Ranch. After riding a series of
mountain curves, you’ve fallen hundreds of feet below sea level and find
yourself right in the basin of Death Valley. We continue further west and ride
along Sequoia National Park up to Mammoth Lakes, a place that is famous for
skiing in the winter and mountain biking in summer.
Day 3 : Yosemite National Park
Distance: 150 miles
Leaving Mammoth Lakes we continue our trip a little
further north and then take the infamous Tioga Pass to cross Yosemite National
Park. You push your Harley through the winding granite canyons…muscle flexing
turns are rampant for the first several miles, and the road demands attention as
you enter the mother of all National Parks. Yosemite conjures up
thousands of images and raises expectations to dizzying heights and when you are
there it is just as beautiful, wild, tame, rich, and sublime as you’d expect. We
ride over to El Portal, where we overnight.
Day 4 : San Francisco
Distance: 200 miles
Today we ride along Yosemite National Park for a
while and then head west towards San Francisco. We cross San Rafael Bridge,
which will take us into Marin County, an unabashed introduction to Californian
self-indulgence: a pleasure zone of conspicuous luxury and abundant natural
beauty, with sunshine, sandy beaches, high mountains, and thick redwood forests,
often ranked the wealthiest county in the US. We ride south to pretty,
little Sausalito, where we stop for lunch. Sausalito is a quaint seaside town,
once a hot spot for drunken sailors, bawdy saloons, today a very refined place
that makes you feel like being at the Cote d’Azur. After lunch it’s off to the
Golden Gate Bridge and right into San Francisco, our stop for the next two
Day 5 : San Francisco
This day is at leisure to enjoy the beautiful city
of San Francisco, a funky, individualistic, surprisingly small place – certainly
the most liberal city in the US. San Francisco has an European flair and lot’s
of opportunities to do some sightseeing. We offer several optional excursions
today, such as a trip to Alcatraz, a Bay Cruise, Cable Car rides, or a Napa
Valley wine tour.
Day 6 : Monterey
Distance: 118 miles
Today we ride along the rugged coast and get a
first taste of one of the best motorcycle rides in the world, as we head down
south on legendary PCH (Pacific Coast Highway-Highway 1) along the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking views of
the coves and inlets of the Pacific are yours en route to Monterey. Monterey
is home to the world famous Laguna Seca Automobile and Motorcycle Racetrack and
the spectacular “Aquarium of the Sea". The coastline here is simply spectacular
and there are plenty of opportunities for great photo stops. We overnight in
Day 7 : Pismo Beach
Distance: 152 miles
We continue our ride on scenic Hwy 1, along the
edge of the cliffs of the Big Sur Coast – 90 wild and undeveloped miles of rocky
cliffs form a sublime landscape where redwood groves line river canyons and the
Santa Lucia Mountains rise out of the blue-green Pacific. Roughly mid-way along
the Big Sur Coast you come to Esalen, which is named for the long gone native
tribes who once enjoyed its natural hot spring, situated on a cliff top high
above the raging Pacific surf. We cruise past San Simeon, Cambria and Morro Bay
until we get to Pismo Beach, where we overnight at a beautiful ocean resort.
Day 8 : Los Angeles
Distance: 225 miles
Today we take Hwy 101 and head towards Los Angeles. At Santa Maria we cut inland to enjoy the great back roads and scenery there. In Santa Barbara we get back on Hwy 101 and cruise straight into Malibu, the infamous beach colony. Twenty miles from here we’ll come to Santa Monica and Venice. Santa Monica is LA’s oldest and biggest resort – once a wild beachfront playground, it’s now a self-consciously liberal and healthy community. Venice Beach is probably the reason why most people come to Venice – nowhere else does LA parade itself quite so openly as along the wide pathway of Venice Boardwalk. From here we will ride over to Hawthorne, where EagleRider’s headquarters are located. Now it’s time to return your motorcycles and transfer back to our hotel to get ready for a recap of this great adventure at our “Good-bye” dinner.
Day 9 : Los Angeles
One last morning to explore before heading back home. Unless you want to extend your holiday, perhaps a week on the beach in Hawaii? A stopover in Chicago, New York, or Boston? Call Bon Voyage to discuss your options.
