Southwest II Self Drive Tour through California and Nevada – the best of the Wild West! Solitary deserts, vibrant cities, deep canyons and high mountains – this Self Drive motorcycle tour has everything. You will see all the attractions of the South-West during this 9 day adventure: Death Valley, Yosemite, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. In between over one thousand miles of fantastic roads and breathtaking scenery and just before the finish line the ineffable beauty of the California coast line on Highway 1 through Big Sur.
Day 1 – Las Vegas Arrival
Upon arrival in Las Vegas you transfer to your hotel. Overnight.
Day 2 Las Vegas to Mammoth Lakes 365 miles
This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider’s Las Vegas store and your adventure can begin! You are leaving Las Vegas and head west – across Death Valley – the hottest place on earth! It’s almost entirely devoid of shade and its sculpted rock layers form deeply shadowed, eroded crevices at the foot of sharply silhouetted hills, their exotic mineral content turning ancient mudflats into rainbows of sunlit iridescence. After riding a series of mountain curves, you’ve fallen hundreds of feet below sea level and find yourself right in the basin of Death Valley. Continue west and ride along Sequoia National Park up to Mammoth Lakes, a place that is famous for skiing in the winter and Mountain biking in summer. Overnight.
Day 3 – Mammoth Lakes to El Portal 105 miles
Day 4 Yosemite (Coarsegold) to San Francisco 255 miles
The morning sun’s rays cast a golden shimmer on the meadows and you continue your ride along Yosemite National Park for a while and then head west towards San Francisco. We cross San Rafael Bridge, which will take you into Marin County, an unabashed introduction to Californian self-indulgence: a pleasure zone of conspicuous luxury and abundant natural beauty, with sunshine, sandy beaches, high mountains, and thick redwood forests, often ranked the wealthiest county in the US. Ride south to pretty, smug little Sausalito, a quaint seaside town, once a hotspot for drunken sailors, bawdy saloons, today a very refined place that makes you feel like being at the Cote d’Azur. You cross the Golden Gate Bridge and arrive in San Francisco, your stop for the next two nights.
Day 5 San Francisco
This day is at leisure to enjoy the beautiful city of San Francisco, a funky, individualistic, surprisingly small place – certainly the most liberal city in the US. San Francisco has a European flair and lots of opportunities to do some sightseeing. How about an excursion to Alcatraz, a Bay Cruise, Cable Car rides, or a Napa Valley wine tour? Overnight.
Today you ride along the rugged coast and get a first taste of one of the best motorcycle rides in the world, as you head down south on legendary PCH (Hwy 1) along the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking views of the coves and inlets of the Pacific are yours en route to Monterey. Monterey is home to the world famous Laguna Seca Automobile and Motorcycle Racetrack and the spectacular “Aquarium of the Sea”. The coastline here is simply spectacular and there are plenty of opportunities for great photo stops. You overnight in Monterey.
Day 7 Monterey to Pismo Beach 150 miles
