Oxford (23 October 2013) - From France and Salzburg to San Francisco and even the Orkney Isles, our Harley-Davidson® riders have been busy touring this year! When we asked our Facebook Fans where their most interesting ride had been in 2013, we got some fantastic responses… Russ Heaven had been on a 2,000-mile trip through France and Spain with his 1999 EVO Springer, while Jane Best, who despite only passing her test a year ago, rode with the Meridian H.O.G.® Chapter to Belgium to stay at the Bikers Loft Motel and Museum!
Some of you rode further afield too, with Brian McMillan visiting Scotsdale, Flagstaff, Williams and Sedona, while Duncan Marshall and his friend had just returned from a trip to California and Nevada. The duo simply flew into San Francisco, rented a couple of Harleys, rode down the Pacific Coast Highway to Los Angeles then through the San Gabriel Mountains and through the desert to Las Vegas!
To some people, touring can be a daunting prospect, especially if it’s the first time you’re attempting a long road trip on two wheels. But it really doesn’t have to be! If you feel more comfortable riding your own bike and you only have limited spare time to tour, you could consider a one-way trip to Europe.
We Move Bikes offers a hassle-free shipping service for riders wishing to do just that. As a Harley-Davidson trusted logistics provider, the company can offer transportation services to and from a number of Harley-Davidson and H.O.G.® events across Europe, including European Bike Week in Faaker See (Austria). So if you’re pushed for time and unable to ride the round-trip, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun!
But, if you’re still keen to experience touring at its best, Harley-Davidson offers a number of Authorized Tours to suit any timescale (and budget), from weekend breaks to two-week rides. All the tours are guided too, which means you get to appreciate some of the beautiful scenery Europe (and beyond) has to offer, while all the planning and logistics are taken care of. Please click here to discover some of the superb Authorized Tours for 2014.
