Breakfast, if the hotels offer it (We would like to point out that breakfast as an included service is not a matter of course in American or Canadian hotels. There are many different varieties of breakfast. Some hotels offer coffee and some kind of roll, toast or a piece of cake, plus maybe some jam. If one is lucky there is some fruit or dairy products. Other hotels only offer coffee with a coffee machine in the room and nothing else. Some hotels again offer a varied breakfast. Many hotels decide in the middle of the season to start this service, to abolish it or even to change it. In general, everywhere there is an opportunity to buy breakfast for little money. We write the services as: partly breakfast, because we can not guarantee which hotel all of a sudden decides for it or against it).

Option motorcycle model warranty:
If the desired model is available, Eaglerider will confirm the reservation for the desired model, but Eaglerider® reserves the right to give you an alternative model from that category if your desired model is not available. This may happen, for example, if your previous renter returned the motorcycle with damage. If a certain model is very important to you, Eaglerider® will guarantee you this model for an extra charge of 100 EUR/per rental. In the unlikely event that this service does not work out on the spot, you will get a motorcycle of the same category and this fee back immediately.

We are happy to continue to stand by Condor
Condor is saved for the time being and the chances that everything will end well for this great airline are very good.
Of course there are other airlines, but nonstop from Frankfurt 5x a week to Las Vegas, affordable fares, cheap upgrades and more make the other competitors look pale.
We have already secured our contingents for a long time and will not cancel them without a good reason.
If something should occur that requires our action, then we will immediately react accordingly. As a small company with very short decision-making processes and top trained travel specialists at the counter, we should also succeed very well.
If you absolutely want to fly with another airline, it should not fail. Please note that you may have to accept higher costs and connecting flights. Ask us. We will be happy to advise you.
-
We have not yet had to do this, but: if the minimum number of participants is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the trip up to four weeks before the start of the trip.
Alternatively, in the event that the minimum number of participants is not reached: in order to avoid a tour cancellation, if it is calculable for us, the tour can possibly be carried out with only one tour guide in the escort vehicle.

Info about the "Silver & Golden State" Tour:
The "Silver & Golden State" tour is the first part of "The American Dream" tour. Here, guests will start together with the guests of "The American Dream" group. Eight days later, when the group approaches Lauglin, the guests are led back to Las Vegas by a second team stationed in Las Vegas, where the motorcycle return and the return flight or individual extension take place. This allows us to manage the contingents optimally, making it possible to run the tours almost 100% of the time.
Smaller groups on request are also possible. Ask us about it, but not only about this topic. Ask us before booking, before the start of the trip and during the tours. So far, no question has gone unanswered. By your questions we can also adjust individually to your needs.
For an extra charge, an extension of several days is possible. Here too, the motto is: it doesn't cost anything to ask (there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers, but you won't get them).
-
Deposit: 100 USD
The deposit can only be paid by credit card
-
1/2 double rooms can be booked on request; if a 1/2 double room is already available, we will confirm your booking that way. If the 1/2 double room is not yet available, then we will confirm a single room first. As soon as we have a booking for the second half of the room, we will immediately credit you the single room supplement.
-
For the takeover of the machines it is mandatory to present a credit card (VISA / MASTERCARD or American Express).

An honest word among bikers
With the next lines we would like to prepare you in the best way for the adventure of your life. You are either about to book one of the most beautiful types of travel, or you have already done so. The biggest difference between our type of holiday and a general package tour is that you are actively involved. Riding a motorcycle is one of the best things in life. At least for us bikers. The focus of the trip is motorcycling through unique landscapes. We have designed the programs in such a way that both riding fun and experience are present in sufficient quantity.
Team spirit and adaptation in the group are absolutely necessary, as well as a certain basic fitness and experience, so that we can reach the goal together happy and healthy. If you have any doubts about your health, fitness or experience levels, please contact us beforehand. We want to achieve the best holiday experience for you too.
The daily stages are on average 250 - 400 kilometres long. That sounds a lot, but it can't be compared to the same route in Europe, considering that there are often 80 kilometres without passing through a town and a whole day without traffic lights on the programme. There are also hardly any traffic jams. We are rarely in the saddle for more than five hours throughout the day. We reach our daily destination between 16 - 18 o'clock, depending on the season. Depending on the weather or temperatures, it can happen that we have to leave a little earlier or reach our daily destination later. However, if we want to experience a picture book sunset with full intention, it will be a little later.

Language: This offer is usually suitable for English and/or German speaking participants. We will gladly provide binding information upon request.
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

Start and end of the trip is the glittering world of Las Vegas. Over the Tioga Pass we cross the Sierra Nevada and the Yosemite National Park, stay overnight twice in San Francisco and ride along the most beautiful part of the famous coastal road "Highway #1". Further highlights lead us through the Mojave Desert and the historic Route 66.

This tour is also the ideal addition to a successful stay in the USA.

If you would like to extend your stay or have other wishes, please contact us.

Tour schedule:
