This adventure has been an American rite of passage for generations - from teenagers who talked their parents into throwing them the keys to the Chrysler or the old street bike sitting in the garage, to parents loading up the family station wagon and heading across the country. For most of us, the term “Road Trip” takes us back to a simpler time in our lives, one where a set of wheels, some gas money, a place to crash for the night and the right group of people meant you could embark on a journey that you would remember for the rest of your life. EagleRider is rekindling that spirit with our new Coast 2 Coast Motorcycle Tour. The concept is simple; create a great route hitting iconic destinations, give riders their favorite motorcycle to ride, set up some Motorcycle Friendly Hotels and classic American motels, hook up with a great group of new friends to ride with, and follow the whole thing up with EagleRider’s 24/7 On-Road Support and Luggage Transport. And if that’s not enough, wrap it all up for a price that riders could never pull off on their own! If you have ever dreamed of riding across America, this is the trip you have been waiting a lifetime for.
Coast to Coast Motorcycle Tour - Tour Itinerary
I completed this tour in October 2018, and it was probably the best motorbike trip I ever made. The bikes provided by EagleRider were top notch, as was the job from our tour guides Steve and Bill. Although we had to deal with some difficult weather conditions, they always kept it cool and our group's mood up. If necessary, they modified our plans according to the conditions, but always as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
The daily mileage was from under 200 to almost 400, and after leaving the California coast until to the eastern part of Texas, we didn't encounter much traffic on the selected roads, so riding was always a pleasure.
Accommodation was in good and comfortable hotels, from Best Western motels to the Hilton in Daytona, always clean, well equipped and big enough.
I started with a Fat Boy, which I would NOT recommend for such a long tour. After two days I was able to change to our spare bike, a Road King, and with the wind screen and the bags for my personal belongings during the days I was much better off.
All in all, it was the experience of a life time and again: I can't wait to do this trip (and other EagleRider tours) again.
