Motorcycle Tours USA

Probably the dream of most motorcycle fans is cruising around the USA in the saddle of a Harley-Davidson. The streets of the country offer enough potential for extended trips on the motorcycle. And as you know there is a lot to see. America fans will have a hard time deciding with which Reuthers Motorcycle Tour they want to see the USA with...

Please select your preferred tour and option:


The most popular USA tour:

Route 66 Dream, 15 days from Chicago to Los Angeles along the Route 66 through eight states.

Of course Reuthers has the most classic USA tour with a Harley-Davidson in their program: The Best of West Tour has many advantages because it combines all the highlights of the west coast in a unique tour. First, you leave behind the town of the rich and the beautiful along the coast towards San Francisco. After a visit to the city that is known for its constant fog, the route heads inland. The most eastern point of the route will be the western city Cody. Then it's off to the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park to Las Vegas and back to the starting point Los Angeles.

In the footsteps of Elvis and Buffalo Bill on a round trip in the USA with a Harley-Davidson

Fans of good old Elvis songs are recommended to come and visit his estate in Memphis. Graceland, the former place of residence of the exceptional singer, is a stop on the Bluegrass Wonders Tour. The visit to Nashville is also in the name of music. It becomes clear where the Reuthers USA round trip received its name: Bluegrass is a genre in the broad spectrum of country music.

For those that love adventure, they can follow the tracks of Buffalo Bill - he worked in the past for the Pony Express. The Pony Express began in 1860 for the first time as a rider's relay from St. Joseph to Sacramento. The historic stretch was approximately 3,000 kilometers long. The same named Reuthers USA round trip leads the Harley-Davidson riders along the old Pony Express route to nearby cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco and former Pony Express stations that can be visited, for example, near the Chimney Rock National Park.

Harley-Davidson USA Round trips for enthusiasts: Pure Nature or off into the Wild West?

Speaking of National Parks. These remarkable natural wonders have been dedicated with their own Reuthers USA round trip: National Parks Tour. The Zion National Park, Monument Valley National Park, the Petrified Forest National Park and the Grand Canyon National Park are fixed destinations on the Harley-Davidson Tour into nature. The Harley-Davidson riders go on a true adventure trip within the framework of the Reuthers USA round trip in the Wild West. A real find here is the visit to the former gold mining town of Tonopah. However, a similar route with a different approach is the Highway 1 Tour.

The Californian coastal highway of the same name is above all: Predestined for a tour with the Harley-Davidson. The road leads from Orange County in the south to Mendocino, north of San Francisco.

And in the east of the USA, the Sunshine State of Florida is waiting for you.

Welcome to the home of Route 66 and Highway No. 1, the Indian Summer and the Rocky Mountains - and of course one of the biggest cult motorcycle brands. But riding Harley-Davidson® is not an obligation in the endlessly gigantic dreamland for motorcycle tours of all kinds.

You would already like to plan your USA motorcycle tour for 2022? Here you will find the right offers.

It was Americans who have made riding as such a purpose in life - singing about it in rock songs whose number is as infinite as the vastness of this truly gigantic country: Canned Heat’s "On the road again", CCR’s "Travelin’ Band", The Doobie Brother’s "Rockin’ down the Highway", Tom Cochrane’s "Life is a highway" - the list doesn’t end. Not to mention cult movies like "Easy Rider". No wonder, after all, all roads in this huge country are long. Roads perfectly suited to enjoying the feeling of freedom on a motorcycle. And where else would you want to do it, if not in the Land of the Free.

A motorcycle tour in the United States not only offers the perfect motorcycle routes for relaxed easy riding - there are also exciting, winding mountain routes and of course endless off-road tracks. After all, freeriding is a popular sport in the USA.

The offers for a motorcycle tour USA take you to warm Florida or into the hot desert of Nevada, through the New England states, across the country from East Coast to West Coast or all the way north through Canada to Alaska. We offer guided motorcycle tours or self-drive tours, each lasting several weeks as well as day tours, on-road and off-road trips. If you want something uniquely yours, you can also get a custom motorcycle tour from us, designed to your liking.

Nothing is more authentic than experiencing America on a motorcycle. There are motorcycle tours to suit every taste. You won’t forget your bike trip through the endless vastness with stops at truck stops, diners and barbecue restaurants for the rest of your life. Riding a motorcycle through the U.S. is the epitome of freedom, life and rock’n’roll.

Classic No.1: USA Motorcycle Tours along Route 66

Riding the most legendary route in the traditional direction on a motorcycle from east to west is the dream of many bikers, and rightly so - even if the originall Route 66 no longer exists in its entirety. Nevertheless, endlessly long highways, cosy biker bars and typical American burger restaurants next to the big cities and national parks are the highlights of such a trip.

The best time to travel through the USA on a motorcycle tour are May, August and September. Since the route from Chicago to Santa Monica crosses different territories and has to cope with different altitudes, you can expect weather fluctuations. You should be aware of this when packing your bike bags.

You can choose between guided motorcycle group tours with a tour guide, oftentimes with an accompanying vehicle for luggage transport, which usually take place on fixed dates, or tours for self-guided riders who want to start a fully organised tour on their own with their own or a rental motorcycle, pre-booked hotels and route plan.

You travel to Chicago and spend the first night in a hotel so that you can start your motorcycle trip the next day rested. The following day you can take over your motorcycle at the rental station in the morning and start your dream vacation.

You pass the "Gateway to the West", the pioneer city St. Louis. You look at the over 600 feet high Gateway Arch, the landmark of the city, a steel arch, inside which gondolas take you to the top and a wonderful view of the city. Later, the Route 66 takes you through Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma, heading for Amarillo.

A relic of the highway’s heyday awaits you here: the Cadillac Ranch. You know the ten vehicles that were driven vertically into the ground as a fantastic photo motif. You’ll rest your motorcycle at Adrian, the geo-mathematical centre of the old route, where you’ll find a place for lunch and an interesting car museum.

You ride your bike through Santa Fe, through Gallup and through Navajo Land to Chinle. Along the way you’ll encounter not only endless wideness, but also the Four Corners, the only point in America where four states border each other: Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. On your motorcycle tour you’ll visit the petrified forest and the natural wonder of the Painted Desert - both of which were created out of a whim of nature and show a spectacular play of colors through different shades of light.

Further west you reach Flagstaff between the Navajo and Hopi Indian reservations and are already approaching one of the greatest highlights of your motorcycle tour: the Grand Canyon. It’s hard to find anything more gigantic and impressive in this world.

Onwards with your motorcycle via Williams to Seligman, where the historic route leads to Santa Monica. On this part of the route you can still ride the original route, which you can find out about in Seligman in the Visitor Center of the route. Check out Angel Delgadillo’s legendary barbershop, get shaved and buy one of the many souvenirs along the way.

On your way to Las Vegas, be welcomed at Lilo’s Café, run by an emigrated German, before turning onto the dazzling Las Vegas Boulevard in the gambling city.

Enjoy the moment you enter, but don’t get too distracted from traffic by these thousand glittering neon signs. Turn night into day, go play in the casinos, let yourself drift. Las Vegas is full of surprises and superlatives. Don’t miss the Highroller, the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, and enjoy the wide view over the Las Vegas Strip at night in the closed gondolas.

The final part of Route 66 motorcycle tours takes you to the Sahara Oasis, Amboy and an old silver mine in the Mojave Desert. The place is called Calico and is a lovingly restored western town that really has a lot of atmosphere and is worth a visit.

You ride your bike your last stage and with it the last miles of the legendary Route 66. Many motorcycle tours in the USA end here, at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, where the route officially ends. Here you have the chance to savor the moment of your life when you could say that you have travelled across the USA from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast.

After handing in your motorcycles at the rental station in Santa Monica you can stroll along the promenade and enjoy your fantastic impressions.

Classic No. 2: USA Motorcycle Tours along Highway No. 1

Motorcycle tours in the U.S. often lead to Highway No. 1 - and rightly so. Among connoisseurs some might complain about our classic ranking and instead declare Highway No. 1 without hesitation the most important of all motorcycle tours in the United States.

From Los Angeles to San Francisco there is a beautiful route along the Pacific coast. You start in Los Angeles, and after picking up the rental bikes, the tour starts at Santa Monica Pier towards Sunset Boulevard and Malibu.

While the sun smiles on your bike and on the typical cityscape of L.A., you will enjoy the passing route. The day’s destination is Morro Bay and takes you past the Danish capital of America, with its numerous wineries, windmills, horses and farms. The scenery is really worth seeing.

The next big destination is approaching: San Francisco. The route hugs the Pacific to the left and lures with sights like the infamous prison Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge as well as Lombard Street and San Francisco’s cable cars. As much as you enjoy riding your bike, it can’t be a mistake to stay San Francisco two to three days to see the city’s highlights.

Highway No. 1 connects the south and north of California from San Diego via Los Angeles to the north of San Francisco. It runs along particularly beautiful stretches of coastline known from film and literature. The thriller "Basic Instinct" with Sharon Stone was shot there. The writer Jack Kerouac created a literary monument to the Big Sur area with his novel of the same name.

Some motorcycle tours extend the classic Highway 1 tour by further impressive cuts along the Pacific Ocean far to the north - or start the route there going in the southern direction: in Seattle, where the much longer tour along the famous coastal road Highway No. 1, combined with Highway 101, forms part of the Panamericana, the "dream road" and longest road in the world. It leads from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego.

Classic No. 3: USA Motorcycle Tours in Florida

In Florida, summer, sun and sandy beaches welcome you next to the vibrant cities of Miami and Orlando. When not riding your motorcycle on one of our fantastic guided or self-guided tours, be sure to check out a sports event or take a helicopter flight over Miami. In the evening you can drink a beer on the famous Ocean Drive and see the most beautiful cars in the world pass by, which could only be surpassed by the even more beautiful sight of their co-drivers.

The Florida Keys, which are especially recommended for motorcycle tours, are very scenic. A long highway leads from the mainland to Key West - you and your bike - for a reward beer at Sloppy Joe’s on Key West. Have fun exploring our motorcycle tours in the United States!

How To Create a Low Cost Self-Guided Motorcycle Trip

Step 1:  Decide what type of terrain, surroundings, scenery and cultural experiences you're interested in or specifically which country(s) you want to RIDE in.

Step 2:  Contact Us and tell us how many days you can spend traveling with these guidelines in mind:

  • Trust us as the experts when it comes to saying how long it takes to ride each region. Collectively, we have hundreds of thousands of kilometers of riding experience, and we know how long each route takes in all the countries on
  • Keeping in mind that we want you to see the most exciting and beautiful routes and scenery, don't be surprised if some tour routes keep you at an average of 150miles (240km) per day in some regions. We'll encourage you to check out the rarest and most unique spots if you're up for it!
  • Plan on having 1 "rest day" every 3-4 days. Trust us, international riding and the people you meet along the way will be exhilerating, but potentially tiring as well!

Step 3: Be prepared to answer our questions about what else you want included, for example, printed notes and turn-by-turn directions, hotel reservation packages, or anything else. We know, the services you want included will probably depend on the prices, but we'll get to that once we know more about what you want.

Step 4:  Our communications with you will make it easy to explain an exact cost based on the services you'd like included, and again, we can help you make sure you're doing this as low-cost as possible.

Step 5: Reserve everything through RIDE Adventures right here in the U.S.!

Usa tours guided self motorcycle


Why Do a Self Guided Tour versus on your own? The most capable and experienced riders often choose the self guided tour option versus trying to figure it all out on their own.  They realize they are probably only going to be here once, and want to make the most out of their trip.  You can still add other things you want to do, but it gives a solid foundation for your trip.  Read the testimonials at the bottom of the page.  With my 20 plus years in the touring business, I would not consider personally going to an unknown area and trying to figure it all myself, I would rather spend my time having fun.  SELF-DRIVE TOUR FAQ’S – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
