Tour Itinerary

Welcome to Seattle, home to some of the most underrated motorcycle riding in the country, and the starting point for our Harley-Davidson “Ride Home.” Our guided tour group will leave Seattle with a handful of local riders, and then we’ll watch our pack grow as we pick new riders from all across the United States at each new stop. Today, we’ll meet at the host hotel at 4pm for an orientation and kickoff party at a local H-D Dealer.
Let’s roll. We’ll get an early start and head straight for the incredible riding and scenery of the Cascade Mountains, as we rumble alongside meandering rivers. Once we cross the Cascades, the scenery changes to long, open stretches of farmland and rolling wheat fields. Our stop tonight is Spokane, Washington, and a huge welcome celebration at Lone Wolf H-D with some local riders.
Let’s hit the road; Milwaukee is calling! We love today’s ride, as we cross the entire state of Idaho, and about half of Montana, in one pass. It’s a long day, but the scenery is incredible and the people are even better. Lunch is at Grizzly H-D in Missoula, before making the final scenic push to Butte. Our dinner and party tonight are at Copper Canyon H-D in Butte, Montana, where, as always, we will meet up with local riders who will be joining us for the rest of the journey east.
It’s a rider’s dream today, as we enjoy a rumble through the north side of Yellowstone National Park, before turning towards the world-famous Beartooth Pass, which takes us riding over 11,000 ft elevation before landing at Red Lodge H-D for a break. Our next stop is a ride down the mountain to our hosted party at Billings H-D. Now, this is what it’s all about!
We’re going to burn some miles today, but it’s more of the same jaw-dropping scenery that we have been enjoying since we left Seattle. The early highlight today is a ride through the heart of the land that is home to one of our oldest and proudest Native American Tribes, The Cheyenne. Soon we head south to Spearfish, SD, then take the scenic route through Spearfish Canyon and The Black Hills on our way to Rapid City H-D for our dinner and tonight’s party.
Today you can relax by the pool, head out to explore on your own, or join the group for a ride to Sturgis, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse.
Today kicks off with an awesome ride through Badlands National Park, then takes long, wide-open shot across the heart of America’s farm country before crossing the famous Missouri River. There’s endless farmland and tractors as far as the eye can see, and the people around these parts are some of the hardest working and friendly you will ever meet. Tonight, we’ll have the chance to kick back with our fellow local riders at a dinner at J&L H-D in Sioux Falls.
Farmland and lakes are the order for the day, as we leave South Dakota and cross to the “land of 10,000 lakes,” Minnesota. This state is literally covered in lakes, and you can’t throw a rock without hitting a body of water. The final stretch of today’s ride is along the shores of the mighty Mississippi River as we head to La Crosse, Wisconsin and yet another big party and dinner at the local H-D Dealership.
We’ll get an early start so we can run south along the shores of the Mississippi all the way down to Wyalusing State Park, before riding through the Great Plains to Kenosha, which is on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. Today we meet up with the other three groups, each of which will be hundreds of riders by now. There’s a huge celebration tonight at Uke’s H-D in Kenosha, before we all ride as one incredible group on the short trip to the 115th Welcome Party for us in Downtown Milwaukee tomorrow!
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.
