Day 1 : Arrive Los Angeles

Today your Wild West journey begins! Please take the shuttle bus to your Los Angeles airport hotel. You will meet your Eaglerider guides and your fellow riders in the hotel lobby to head over to Eaglerider for your bike assignment. Afterwards you’ll go over information about your upcoming trip.

Day 2 : Los Angeles – Palm Springs (190 miles)

After your welcome breakfast the moment has come - you will get transferred to EagleRider in Los Angeles to pick-up your bike. After an orientation head south and west to ride the winding mountain road down to Lake Elsinore. After lunch, the cool air bathes you as you wind your way up more mountainous roads into the San Bernardino National Forest. Your descent into Palm Springs is spectacular, and you will enjoy your first night on the road among the Palm Trees and night life that make up this iconic town.

Day 3 : Palm Springs – Laughlin (232 miles)

Today take a loop through Joshua Tree National Park an extraordinary park full of bizarre desert trees and fantastic rock formations. From here descend into Twenty-Nine Palms and drop into the vastness of the Mojave Desert. From here, your trip gets legendary appeal, as you enter Historic Route 66 in at the famous Roys in Amboy. You will stay on Route 66 for the rest of the day as you cross the desert, and the state line, into Nevada, and arrive in Laughlin, where you overnight.

Day 4 : Laughlin – Grand Canyon (206 miles)

Continue your ride on legendary Route 66 and ride further on to Kingman, which is considered to be “The heart of Historic Route 66”, as it’s situated in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of the old “Mother Road”. From Kingman you head for Seligman, another one of the longest surviving stretches of Route 66, which heads off in a northern loop through the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Continue your ride towards the majestic Grand Canyon.

Day 5 : Grand Canyon – Monument Valley (170 miles)

Spend the morning at the Grand Canyon to get some fantastic views. Then cruise along to the incredible Monument Valley. This is Navajo Country here a classic Wild West landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidding pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands. Only when you arrive at Monument Valley will you come to realize how much your perception of the West has in fact been shaped by this one spot. This evening you will be provided with the option to descend into the Valley itself and let the Navajo Guides treat you to stories of life in the heart of this spiritual wonderland.

Day 6 : Monument Valley – Bryce Canyon (340 miles)

From Kayenta you will ride up to sleepy Mexican Hat; ride on past the Valley of the Gods, where much of the movie “Thelma and Louise” was filmed, and cross the Colorado River where it pours into Lake Powell. Ride along the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, across aspen-covered peaks to Bryce Canyon, where you overnight.

Day 7 : Bryce Canyon – Las Vegas (250 miles)

This morning there will be time to visit the amazing Bryce Canyon before you continue to Zion National Park. Besides seeing the most beautiful rock formations found anywhere on earth, you are in for a gorgeous ride here – the switchbacks of Zion! Compared to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, Zion exudes a stronger sense of nature. From Zion it is only a short ride to Las Vegas. Those clients, who will end their trip in Las Vegas, will have a “Good Bye” Dinner this evening.

Day 8 : Las Vegas

This day is for relaxing, gambling, exploring or whatever your heart desires. Keep in mind you will have an early start on the following day! Wild West 1: Those on the 8 day tour will check out of your hotel today where your tour comes to an end. Wild West 2: Those on the 9 day tour join today in Las Vegas

Day 9 : Las Vegas – Mammoth Lakes (315 miles)

From Las Vegas head west and your ride will take you across Death Valley – one of the hottest places on earth! After riding a series of mountain curves, you’ll arrive below sea level and find yourself right in the basin of Death Valley. From here continue west, to the foothills of the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountains. Today you will have ridden from the lowest point in the United States, over 100’ below sea level, to the ski town of Mammoth Lakes at over 7000 feet.

Day 10 : Mammoth Lakes – Yosemite National Park (69 miles)

Leaving Mammoth Lakes continue your trip a little further north and then take the infamous Tioga Pass to cross Yosemite National Park. 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. Ride over to El Portal, where you will overnight.

Day 11 : Yosemite National Park – San Francisco (194 miles)

Today head west towards San Francisco. Leaving Yosemite National Park, descend through California Gold Rush country. Leaving Gold Rush country, set your sights on the coastal regions of Marin County, an unabashed introduction to Californian selfindulgence: a pleasure zone of conspicuous luxury and abundant natural beauty. From here, catch your first glimpse of this city’s most famous landmark – the Golden Gate – and traverse one of San Francisco’s great bridges to enter the city! Make your way to the heart of the city where you’ll spend the next two days exploring all that San Francisco has to offer.

Day 12 : San Francisco

Today head west towards San Francisco. Leaving Yosemite National Park, descend through California Gold Rush country. Leaving Gold Rush country, set your sights on the coastal regions of Marin County, an unabashed introduction to Californian selfindulgence: a pleasure zone of conspicuous luxury and abundant natural beauty. From here, catch your first glimpse of this city’s most famous landmark – the Golden Gate – and traverse one of San Francisco’s great bridges to enter the city! Make your way to the heart of the city where you’ll spend the next two days exploring all that San Francisco has to offer.

Day 13 : San Francisco – Monterey (118 miles)

Today head south on the legendary Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1) which hugs the rugged California coast of the Pacific Ocean – the beginning of one of the best motorcycle rides in the world! For the next couple of days, the coastline is simply spectacular and there are plenty of opportunities for great photo stops. Breathtaking views of the coves and inlets of the Pacific are yours en route to the seaside town of Monterey and its famous “Cannery Row.” Monterey is home to the world famous Laguna Seca Automobile and Motorcycle Racetrack and the spectacular “Aquarium of the Sea.”.

Day 14 : Monterey – Pismo Beach (152 miles)

Continue your 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 bluegreen Pacific. You’ll cross bridges situated on gorges high above the raging Pacific surf, see artichoke fields perched precariously along rocky cliffs, stop for coffee and lunch, cruise past San Simeon, wind through Cambria and Morro Bay and finally arrive at Pismo Beach. Truly a day’s great ride!

Day 15 : Pismo Beach – Los Angeles (225 miles)

Today take Highway 101 and head towards Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean to your right, and the coastal mountains to your left. Begin your ride passing through the vineyards that make up so many great California wines! After a stop for a coffee, get back on Highway 101 and cruise through Santa Barbara and hug the coastline straight into Malibu, the infamous beach colony. 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 you will ride over to Hawthorne, where EagleRider’s headquarters are located. Now it’s time to return your motorcycles and transfer back to your hotel to get ready for a recap of this great adventure at a “Good-bye” dinner.

Day 16 : Los Angeles Departure

Your tour comes to an end today as you take the hotel shuttle and transfer to Los Angeles International Airport for your onward flight home.
