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!
Eaglerider + DJ & April = AMAZING EXPERIENCE
Having just finished the Route 66 tour I felt I should extend my thanks (and I am sure the thanks of the other tour members) to DJ and April for a once in a lifetime experience. These two are the dynamic duo of tour guiding. Nothing was too much trouble and their friendly, professional and courteous attitude is to be commended.
OMG WHAT AN EXPERIENCE
This tour was very special to me as I had my Dad's ashes with me as I was fulfilling his last dying wish to do Route 66.
At first I was very nervous as I did not know the group or the tour guide and van driver and how they would all embrace what I was doing. Well that I did not need to worry about, Mike Templin (Tour Leader) & Uncle Ray (Van Driver) and the rest of the group (Aussies & Swiss, oh and 1 Kiwi) were the most awesome people you could ever travel with and they all embraced my journey. We have made lifelong friendships that we will value forever.
The trip was the best ever experience my hubby and I have ever been on, the country side was magnificent, the hotels were comfortable and our Silver Steed (Heritage Softail) was in great condition and rode like a dream.
I would recommend this tour to anyone. I had 10 minutes experience on the back of a bike before doing this tour and I lasted 14 days and would go back in a heartbeat and do it all over again. Our oldest rider was 70 and his passenger was 68 so age is no barrier.
I thank Mike and Uncle Ray for helping fulfil 3 peoples dreams, Dads, my hubby's and mine. xoxo
