Consider a SELF-GUIDED Tour

We provide:

In short, you'll have much the same experience that you would have on a guided tour. Of course there's no support vehicle or professional tour staff, but you've got the freedom to ride at your own pace and enjoy the trip in your own way.

Sunshine Highways

Self-Guided Tour • 14 Ride Days / 15 Nights
2800 miles (4500km)

Las Vegas, NV

This has been one of our most popular Full Service Tours. It's a great ride in so many ways and can be done anytime from late May to mid-October. Because it appeals to so many people, we're offering it with a self-guided option. If a shorter trip is necessary, it can also be taken as an seven-day self-guided tour. More

Sunshine Highways

Self-Guided Tour • 7 Ride Days / 8 Nights
1300 miles (2100km)

Las Vegas, NV

Not everyone has two full weeks to enjoy a ride, so we've made a seven-day version. Cutting the trip "in half" sounds like a big sacrifice to make, but you'll still get to ride some of the best roads in the Southwest. Visit Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, Monument Valley, and more, and spend two nights at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. More

For this self-guided version, the hotels remain as many of the same first-class accommodations as the original tour, with many luxury amenities. Meals are of course at your option. Our "Suggested Dining" list includes some wonderful choices. More

Colorado High Country

8D / 9N 1280 miles (2060km)

Denver, CO

Colorado is a wonderful place to see on two wheels, and during this eight-day ride you'll see the best of it. Explore the back roads from Denver to Durango and back, taking in all the mountain passes and incredible scenery along the way. The tour starts and ends in Denver. More

San Francisco / Las Vegas

SELF-GUIDED 7-DAY

7D / 8N 1150 miles (1850km)

Start in San Francisco, CA

This is a ONE-WAY tour, NOT a loop and there's no better way to see so much of California in just a week! You'll explore coastline, mountains, forests and desert. Coincidentally, San Francisco or Las Vegas are both excellent places to extend your stay if you like.

There's NO EXTRA CHARGE for the one-way rental and we'll gladly help with the logistics of transporting any luggage not carried on your bike to your destination. This trip can be started in EITHER San Francisco or Las Vegas. More
