My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Ride a Harley with Eaglerider for a scenic road tour

“We rent dreams.” That’s the claim at Eaglerider, a motorcycle rental and tour company based out of Los Angeles, California. With guided, self-guided and adventure tours available, all a baby boomer motorcyclist has to do is pick a destination and show up. 

The guided tour selections cover the United States plus New Zealand and Australia. Tours include accommodations, breakfasts, dinners, guide, luggage hauling, motorcycle and insurance. Doesn’t this 10-day guided tour of New Zealand, Best of the South, look like a unique way to experience the South Island? 

Do-it-yourself types choose from a varied menu of locations. All trips include hotel, motorcycle and guidebooks. I think the New England itinerary would make a great trip for viewing fall colors. Not a Harley rider? The self-guided tours also offer the choice of a convertible. Ahem, that would be me.

And, for the more adventurous baby boomer, the guided ATV tour at Eaglerider Ranch near Fort Benton, Montana leads riders through the Coolies while introducing them to the nature and wildlife populating the Missouri River Breaks area. Take your pick of half-day and day-long rides.

Fly to your destination, get on your Harley (BMW and Honda also available) and ride. That’s the beauty of Eaglerider.

Do you ride motorcycles? Have you taken a tour? Post a comment. I might not be going on one but you never know about Alan.

Your travel experiences sound incredible! Thank you for sharing.

My husband (Justin) and I leave on September 30th to backpack to various countries around the world for a year or so. At one point during our journey, Justin has a dream of riding a motorcycle across China. Who knows?

As we have been planning for our adventure we have been updating a blog. http://www.nomadbackpackers.com We would love to have other opinions, ideas, encouragement, advice, helpful tips, and more left as comments.

Thanks,
Natalie
