Description

Join us on a classic motorcycle tour to the world's biggest motorcycle party in the Black Hills and Sturgis, which will be celebrating its 85th anniversary in 2025. The Rocky Mountains with the highest pass in the USA, national parks such as Yellowstone, Devils Tower and the Badlands, Buffalo Bill's home town of Cody, the Beartooth Highway, the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse monument, buffalo and old Indian myths are the highlights here. Join us on a guided tour with one of our USA experts as your travel companion and the cult motorcycle brand "Harley-Davidson ® ".

We have prepared a well-planned tour for you, which includes a good number of miles of motorcycling each day, but also takes in the sights along the way. The motorcycles for our guided tours come from renowned motorcycle rental companies. This means that we have an excellent selection of new models with just a few miles on them, all of which are perfectly prepared for you. Another advantage is that the whole tour is accompanied by a van. This is where 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!
