Oxford (02 April 2012) - For many riders who fantasise about leaving everyday life behind and setting off on the trip of a lifetime, Route 66 will remain a dream. But any motorcyclist who makes the decision to try a new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle between now and 30 June 2012 has a chance to win a Route 66 tour for themselves and a friend.
Cruising down America’s famous Route 66 on a Harley-Davidson is the ultimate in wish fulfilment for many riders. Probably the most famous motorcycle tour in the world, Route 66 is a true symbol of American biking culture – which is why the only way to see it is in the saddle of a Harley.
The trip, which takes riders from Chicago to Los Angeles along one single, scenic road, was immortalised in Jack Kerouak’s 1950’s novel On the Road. It encompasses everything from big US cities like LA, to the wide open countryside of Oklahoma and the Mojave Desert, making it the ultimate tour experience.
Any rider who takes a test ride on any new Harley-Davidson® model – whether it’s a brand new Sportster® Seventy-Two™ or a touring bike like a Dyna® Switchback – will be entered into a draw to win a guided Route 66 trip with H-C Travel.
The lucky winner will cover 2,700 miles in 15 days, taking in sights including the Grand Canyon, the Nevada Desert, the Petrified Forest and the Pacific Ocean. Of course, the real highlight is mile after mile of US highway and a Harley eager to eat up those miles.
Every Harley-Davidson dealership throughout the UK and Ireland is participating in the draw, so no matter where you decide to take your test ride, you are guaranteed a chance to win the prize. There’s a Harley for every type of rider, so no matter what your style or fancy, there’s a bike you’ll be at home riding – whether that’s on Route 66 or the A1. As the prize is for two, it’s an ideal opportunity to take a lucky passenger you’d share your prize with along to the dealership and let them try out a Harley for size.
