Ingen film har någonsin påverkat motorcykelvärden lika stort som filmen Easy Rider. När den hade sin debut 1969 introducerade den USAs motorcykelkultur till världen. Det finns inte en människa som levde 1969 som inte sett denna film och som inte någon gång velat vara Billy eller Wyatt på den öppna vägen på Captain America. 43 år senare anses Easy Rider fortfarande vara den ideala motorcykelfilmen, och än idag fortsätter den att ge liv till drömmen om att få ta del i den livsändrande upplevelsen av att erövra den öppna vägen på en motorcykel. EagleRider Motorcycle Rental and Tours är stolt över att ha fått exklusiva rättigheter att erbjuda våra kunder chansen att spåra de exakta stegen av Easy Rider. Vårt team har samarbetat med Sony Picture och Easy Rider-experter som Alan "Mr. Zip" Dunn för att skapa den mest autentiska rutten som följer den exakta vägen som Billy och Wyatt tog när filmen inspelades. Från södra Californias motorvägar och Death Valleys skrämmande djup till historiska vägar på Route 66 och hela vägen till jazz- och blueshuvudstaden New Orleans, bjuder Easy Rider Movie Tour på en upplevelse som du drömt om sedan första gången du såg filmen. Våra erfarna turguider kommer inte bara visa dig vägarna som du kommer att minnas från filmen, men vi kommer även visa dig utrustning som användes bakom scenerna, berätta historier som vi hört från personer som jobbade på filmen, och stå tillsammans på de exakta platserna där filmen spelades in. Du får även möjligheten att rida på en kopia av Captain America eller Billy bike! När det hela är över, kommer du utan tvekan att vara en Easy Rider.
Easy Rider Tour
I did the tour in September 2015, with Alan Dunn the tour guide, Tim Matlock as the back-up / van driver.
The trip was awesome, from the time I was picked up / introduced to the above named personnel the night before, then in the morning was drove to the bike pick-up at the L.A. Harley centre "Eagle Rider centre" we were given a free motorcycle jacket, our name was on the bikes we had chosen, we had a bike introductory from the hire team, then set off.
The things I seen on the trip where out of this world, I will never forget the friends I made and sights I seen, I would like to think that I made friends for life.
If you have not watched the Film Easy Rider, it will help with the film locations, the first day is the hardest, but you soon get into a rhythm and it is great. Hotels were very good, and a nice breakfast every morning.
Safety is important to all riders, so every morning we where told what to expect / look out for.
The midway break was great, as i'm not American it was nice to see a town and how different it was from my town in England.
The trip came to a end in New Orleans, once again it was nice to have a look around under my own steam so to speak.
I have to say if you are thinking about this trip do it, I did and still talk about it as though it was only yesterday.
I watched the film Easy Rider 13/07/2019 yet again just to remind me of the places we visited, and thought been their seen that :-)
I rode "Captain America" through Flagstaff, you have to be careful as people stop and stare at you while taking photos, they hold the car steering wheel with there Knee :-) and point at you. It was awesome.
Trip of a lifetime !
We had an absolutely fantastic time on our Eaglerider "Easy Rider" tour from LA to New Orleans, from 5 Aug to 18 Aug 2015. This was a special occasion for us (my 60th birthday), and we had booked the tour well in advance from Australia.
The check in process at Eaglerider LA was very easy and stress free, and in no time at all we were on our bikes for the ride to NoLA !
A special bonus on the trip was having a replica "Captain America" chopper in the trailer, for anyone on the tour to ride. My ride on "The Captain" through Death Valley was probably the most memorable day of my life. I had been looking at my poster of Easy Rider hanging in the shed for more years than I care to remember.
The whole trip through 8 states was fantastic. We were only a small group (eight of us), so it allowed for tailoring of the tour to suit us (ie visiting Harley shops). Eaglerider even had fantastic summer weather put on for us.
Special thanks to our tour leader Jeremy, and our van driver Chris, who both did remarkable jobs, making sure we were having the best time of our lives, whilst always ensuring our safety on the road.
I have the highest regard for Eaglerider Tours, and would absolutely recommend anyone thinking of touring with them.
