Description

Join us on a classic motorcycle tour through the United States of America. Florida the "Sunshine State", Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, St. Augustine, Orlando, Fort Myers, the Everglades, the Keys with Key West, and Miami are the highlights here. A relaxing beach and shopping vacation and possible tour extensions, such as a cruise at the end round off this tour perfectly. We ride this guided tour with one of our connoisseurs as a travel companion and on the bikes of one of the most iconic motorcycle brands of all times - "Harley-Davidson®".

We have prepared a well-planned tour for you that includes a good number of miles of motorcycle riding each day, but also takes in the sights along the way. The motorcycles for our guided tours come from reputable motorcycle rental companies. Thus, we have an excellent selection of as-new models with few miles, all of which are well prepared for you. As a further advantage, the whole tour is accompanied by a van. Here, the necessary luggage is stored during the tour and, depending on space availability, accompanying persons can also ride in the van - for you, this means pure motorcycling!
