Someone once told us that there are three iconic ways to see America; in a convertible, in an A-class motorhome or on the back of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle. We’d agree, with a slight exception, an Indian Chief or Honda Goldwing aren’t a bad ride either!
The USA is certainly blessed with great motorcycle routes, whether it’s Pacific Coast sunshine, National Park landscapes or Southern party towns you’re after. Here’s a few of our customers’ favourite motorcycle routes in America for a little inspiration.
The classic road trip from Chicago to Los Angeles. It’s 2,448 miles long, with plenty of museums, places to eat and things to see on the way, so give yourself at least two weeks. Our clients typically choose a Harley Davidson or other bike built for rider and passenger comfort to take on the Mother Road.
Los Angeles, San Francisco & Las Vegas
The Pacific Coast Highway between L.A. and San Francisco won’t disappoint; almost guaranteed sunshine and a truly breathtaking coastline. The journey from San Francisco to Las Vegas then takes you through Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite National Park. Allow at least nine to ten days to see everything.
New Orleans, Nashville & Memphis
The birthplace of American music. A circular route from Memphis to Nashville, south through Birmingham to New Orleans, then back north through Louisiana and Mississippi can take around eight to ten days. As well as Graceland, Sun Studio and other musical must-sees, allow time to visit some of the historical sites of the American Civil War.
Orlando, Miami & Key West
Beaches and bridges by the bucketload. If you’re flying into Orlando you may want a day or two to explore the theme parks before joining Highway 1, south to Miami. Check out South Beach and its Art Deco District, before continuing to Key West, the most southern point in mainland USA.
You can return your motorcycle to Miami or extend your adventure up Florida’s Gulf Coast to Fort Myers, Tampa or back to Orlando.
