Itinerario di viaggio

Don’t be shy about having us set you up with a bike and hotel a few days early to explore southern Florida before we hit the road. Once you get settled at the hotel, we’ll meet up at 4pm for introductions to our fellow riders and our guide team. Tonight, we’ll kick back at a local Ft. Lauderdale beach restaurant for some great food and refreshments.
This wouldn’t be a proper Florida ride without a rip through the famous Alligator Alley. Be sure to keep your feet on the board and we rumble along this 80 mile stretch of road, where alligators are more abundant than people. We’ll stop at a local attraction to see these monsters up close, and to give any of you brave enough the chance to wrestle a 16 footer. The gulf coast of Florida is famous for insanely beautiful white sand beaches, and that’s exactly where we’re headed this afternoon, with lunch at Six Bends H-D in Ft. Meyers, then dinner and a party at Brandon Old-Town H-D just outside of Tampa.
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to ride 200 miles through an endless orange grove, well, today your questions will be answered. The single land roads, and vibrant greens and orange, are only surpassed by the sweet scent of the citrus groves. It’s a part of Florida that few tourists get to see, as we cut a path through the center of the state on our way to Georgia. Our stop tonight is the small, southern town of Tifton, where we will enjoy yet another dinner and party at Tifton H-D.
We have a lot of ground to cover today, but our lunch stop at Atlanta Braves baseball stadium will give us a great break and chance to recharge for the final push through Chattanooga and into Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We’ll even have time to swing by the Jack Daniels Distillery Visitors Center and Shop in Lynchburg!
Now we are hot on the “Bourbon Trail,” home to some of the most underrated motorcycle roads in the country. Tennessee and Kentucky both offer hundreds and hundreds of miles of backroads and byways, each dotted with everything from large brands to backyard, boutique bourbon distilleries.
Let’s kick off our day with a blast up the road to southern Illinois on our way to the famous Route 66 town of Joliet for lunch and souvenir shopping. Next, we blast through the outskirts of Chicago (don’t worry, we’ll be back!) and turn towards the waters of Lake Michigan and the waterfront of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Here we’ll meet up with what should be, by this time, thousands of Harley riders. Tomorrow, we’ll all make our way as one giant group in to kick off the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee!
What’s cooler than riding in to Milwaukee and the H-D Museum with hundreds of other bikers? We make the short ride and are greeted by Harley-Davidson Executives and employees, as well as leaders from the city of Milwaukee. After a lot of hard miles, you’ve earned this. Now get ready to have the time of your life
We will have daily rides and events to visit, as well as a VIP Tour of the Harley-Davidson Museum. We will have more information on the daily events and activities as Harley-Davidson releases them to us.
Tens of thousands of motorcyclists of every ilk and nation are expected for activities that will be jammed with headliner music, racing, foods of international flavor, museum tours, custom bike shows, marriage ceremony packages, bike parade (which drew 6,000 motorcyclists for the 110th), probably dancing and extreme camaraderie.
More information will be released by the Motor Company as time rolls closer to the big event, but it’s safe to say the rev limiter will be turned off for a full card of entertainment. At the 110th Anniversary, Milwaukee was rocked by the likes of ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Kid Rock (with a cameo by John Fogerty), Grand Funk Railroad, Dierks Bentley, Buckcherry, Joan Jett, Lynyrd Skynyrd (H.O.G. members only), Lupe Fiasco, the Doobie Brothers, Dropkick Murphys, Blue Oyster Cult, Elvin Bishop and others. Some 28 headliner acts and 60 bands overall put on an unforgettable show. Ticket prices are yet to be determined. It is not too early to pencil in 115 years of American motorcycling. Mark your calendars, take time off and get ready for a seriously good time.
Take a leisurely ride to the Windy City, have some deep-dish pizza, marvel at the skyscrapers, maybe take in a Cubs or White Sox game, time permitting. Tonight, our small group will enjoy one last meal together to reflect on the incredible journey we shared together over the past several days. Time to start planning our next adventure!
Bon voyage. We hope you had an absolute blast and are bringing a lifetime of great memories home with you. See you again soon.
