I've been on several of the tours for Route 66, Pacific Coast Highway and the best of the West, including the very first 66 tour in 2010.I always had the original ambition of riding along Route 66 on a Harley as part of “one of those unforgettable items to tick off”, and with the help of Darren and his team I have made that dream come true. So much so that I've been back several times since that very first tour!Could I have done it myself? Sure. But you don’t get all the experience, camaraderie of other bikers, insights, local knowledge and the best routes to take – and along with all the logistics sorted, including fantastic bike rental, flight arrangements, hotels, meals and all the backup services the tour provides, doing it alone would just not compare.You get to see the sights of sounds of real America - from the bright lights of Vegas to the majestical and romantic Grand Canyon at sunset; from long open route 66 roads to twisty, rugged mountain passes of the devils backbone in Utah; through temperatures of 110c in Death Valley, and the odd rain cloud or even snow over the tops; you can ride, see and experience it all.If you have that dream – don’t hesitate.
Best of the West Tour September 2015Route 66 - tickPacific Coast Highway - tickBest of the West - tickBest of the West was certainly the best yet.Where to start! Riding as a pillion behind my Veteran husband we both enjoyed some amazing, breathtaking and sometimes challenging experiences.The list of places visited went beyond expectation and the miles covered over the course of the 10 days was approximately 2300. The tour incorporated Santa Monica Pier, San Francisco, parts of Route 1 and 101, infamous Route 66, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Oatman (Donkey Village) and Monument Valley to name but a few. For me riding through the state of Utah and entering Bryce Canyon was the highlight of the tour offering the most amazing and overwhelming scenery. The Grand Canyon came a close second as we were lucky enough to be there as the sun was setting, enhancing everything tenfold.Whilst riding through Death Valley we and another rider and pillion broke away from the group and enjoyed riding a white knuckle ride! As we did so we had a fighter jet fly over our heads - Top Gun eat your heart out! We re-joined the group and enjoyed ice creams whilst temperatures reached in excess of 100 degreesI embraced every opportunity as a pillion to just sit back and soak in all the sights in the knowledge that I was in safe hands both on the bike and within the group. I climbed Vernal Falls together with a fellow pillion, swam in the sea and Tenaya Lake - now that was just a little bit chilly but again an experience not to be forgotten.The tour afforded great accommodation, lead us to excellent eating establishments and was very professionally, seamlessly organised. The camaraderie within the group was fantastic and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the experiences, making good friends, sharing stories - laughing, crying and eating throughout the day and evening.Thank you Darren and team for making this happen
