EagleRider's World famous Route 66 motorcycle tour travels the original Route 66, known as the "Mainstreet of America" or "Mother Road", is 2400 miles long from Chicago to Los Angeles, crosses three time zones and 8 States: Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Route 66 has been the path of migrants, dreamers, desperadoes and an entire generation of vacationers discovering the way west. The 1950's were the Route 66 glory days, when thousands of cars rode bumper to bumper behind each other to experience the Western frontier. Hotels, motels, gas stations, classic restaurants, and the "New" America sprang up everywhere. Much of Route 66's classic roads, restaurants, gas stations, and nostalgic landmarks are preserved just as they were in the 1950’s. The famous and nostalgic Route 66 is the road created in heaven for motorcycle touring. Simply stated, this is the guided tour of America!

From July 22 to August 9th we rode Route 66 from Chicago to LA. It was a fantastic journey and we met some amazing people. Eagleriders organised everything and our tour guides DJ and April were absolutely brilliant. The journey would not have been the same without them. We are hoping to take another of Eagleriders tours next year and if we could ride with DJ and April again that would make it all the easier to decide. Thank you Eagleriders and DJ and April for a true "ride of a lifetime".
Route 66 - The Red Team with Vin & Ken - June 2015
What a tour! Had the most amazing experiences you can imagine. It was a WOW factor from start to finish. Met good people and made great friends, including the crazy gang from the Blue team,
The tour guides Vin & Ken were great and we saw so much more than if we"d done it on our own.
One bit of advice, take note of what they recommend you should take, especially the long sleeve T-shirt, you'll need it when you go through the desert, it was 40+ when we went through.
Also you might want a face mask, to prevent you having to pick the flies out of your teeth because of the smile you've had on your face all day!
I would recommend this to anyone, and as this was my wife's first time on a bike and she thoroughly enjoyed it, there really is no excuse not to sign up.
Where are we going next love, the Canada tour looks good?
