Tour Itinerary

Today your Wild West journey begins! Please take the shuttle bus to your Los Angeles airport hotel. You will meet your Eaglerider guides and your fellow riders in the hotel lobby to head over to Eaglerider for your bike assignment. Afterwards you'll go over information about your upcoming trip. After the meet and greet, make sure to explore L.A.’s night life in Hollywood or Santa Monica or just get a goodnight sleep and get ready for the first day’s ride tomorrow!
After our Welcome Breakfast the moment has come - you will get transferred to EagleRider in Los Angeles to pick-up your bike. After an orientation we head south and west to ride the winding mountain road down to Lake Elsinore. After lunch, the cool air bathes us as we wind our way up more mountainous roads into the San Bernardino National Forest, skirting the slopes of San Jacinto Mountain. Our descent into Palm Springs is spectacular, and we will enjoy our first night on the road among the Palm Trees and night life that make up this iconic town.
Today we take a loop through Joshua Tree National Park an extraordinary park full of bizarre desert trees and fantastic rock formations. From here we descend into Twenty-Nine Palms and drop into the vastness of the Mojave Desert. From here, your trip gets legendary appeal, as we enter Historic Route 66 in at the famous Roys in Amboy. We will stay on RT 66 for the rest of the day as we cross the desert, and the state line, into Nevada, and arrive in Laughlin, where we overnight.
We continue our ride on legendary Route 66 into Arizona, stop for wild animals in Oatman and ride further on to Kingman, which is considered to be “The heart of Historic Route 66”, as it’s situated in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of the old “Mother Road”. From Kingman you head for Seligman, another one of the longest surviving stretches of Route 66, which heads off in a northern loop through the Hualapai Indian Reservation. After our lunch stop in Seligman we continue our ride towards the majestic Grand Canyon; be prepared for one of the greatest sights man has ever seen!
We spend the morning at the Grand Canyon to get some fantastic views. Then we’ll cruise along the South Rim for a few miles and leave Grand Canyon National Park at the East entrance. Now it’s off to the incredible Monument Valley. This is Navajo Country here a classic Wild West landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidding pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands. Only when you arrive at Monument Valley will you come to realize how much your perception of the West has in fact been shaped by this one spot. Such scenery does exist elsewhere, of course, but nowhere is it so perfectly distilled. This evening we will be provided with the option to descend into the Valley itself and let our Navajo Guides treat us to stories of life in the heart of this spiritual wonderland.
From Kayenta we will ride up to sleepy Mexican Hat, briefly a frenzied gold-mining camp, which takes its name from a riverside sandstone hoodoo – it actually looks like a south-of-the-border sombrero. We ride on past the Valley of the Gods, where much of the movie “Thelma and Louise” was filmed, and cross the Colorado River where it pours into Lake Powell. Lake Powell has 1960 miles of shoreline, which is more than the entire Pacific Coast and 96 water-filled side canyons. We ride along the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, across aspen-covered peaks, along the buff-colored sandstones of the Devil’s Backbone, through the Escalante Wilderness, and finally to Bryce Canyon, where we overnight. This is a day you'll never forget!
This morning there will be time to visit the amazing Bryce Canyon before we continue to Zion National Park. Besides seeing the most beautiful rock formations found anywhere on earth, you are in for a most stunning ride along the switchbacks of Zion! From Zion it is only a short ride into the neon and gambling oasis of Las Vegas. We will stay in beautiful downtown Vegas, and later tonight we will gather together for our final “Good Bye” Dinner.
We hope you enjoyed your EagleRider tour. Be sure to let us know if you would like to spend some extra time in Las Vegas or keep your EagleRider motorcycle a bit longer and we will make the arrangements for you.

Une superbe aventure guidée

En français dans le texte:
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine sur le parcours wild west 1 ! Des paysages grandioses (comme dans les western de l'enfance), les passages et arrêts sur la route 66, OATMAN village et ses saloons, des visites très intéressantes tel le survol du grand canyon en hélico et la promenade en 4x4, animée par une très sympathique guide Navaro, à Monument Valley.
Tout nous a intéressé dans ce road trip de + 2200 kms, au guidon de l' Electra Glide fournie par Eagle Rider à LA. Prise en compte et en main facile toujours aidés par notre excellent guide Stéfano et son fidèle adjoint logistique Patrick (et oui, on s'occupe de pas grand chose à part ouvrir grand les yeux et garder la distance dans la colonne. Les bagages sont livrés aux étapes, il y a une HD en spare et notre guide Stéphano a géré quasiment tout sur la route). Presques toutes les soiréess sont Free !
Malheureusement malgré la longueur des routes, ce voyage s'est déroulé trop vite et notre arrêt à Las Végas ne nous a pas permis de renflouer le porte feuille pour pour continuer le trip ! Encore merci à Stéfano et Patrick et bonjour à tout le groupe.
Serge et MJ
PS: Si vous devez réserver, passez en direct par Eagle Rider vous y gagnerez la commision d'une agence française ! Allez, chauffez vous les poignets !

Best Time, Loved It

I joined Eaglerider for the May 31 Wild West 1 Trip and can say it was the most enjoyable week ever, and at 58 years old that says a lot.

I had not been on an organized ride before, but got the itch and wanted to see the desert up close. The whole trip was thrilling. The Harley was in excellent condition, the road had just the right balance of challenge & peace, the scenery was crazy (from a bike is the only way to see it), and the accommodations were all superb.

The best part, and the greatest surprise had to be the people along for the ride. First, a shout out for my fellow travelers all of whom were strangers and are now friends for life. We are like minded road warriors and shared a passion for the journey, laughs, beers and constant fist bumps. I miss them terribly. Second, please pass along my thanks and gratitude for the EagleRider Boys; Jeff (guide), Don (guide), Alex (van man) and Ken (who sold me the trip). These people are professional, passionate and prepared. We were always on schedule, they were knowledgeable, fun to be with, and their drive to deliver customer service was genuine. They made it work.

See you next year, I will be putting the band back together.

Jesse London
