What You Can Expect
For this self-drive independent tour, you’ll be provided with the motorcycle rental and a road book that includes a detailed day-by-day itinerary and routes planned especially for motorcycles, along with maps and suggestions for local touring and sightseeing. Included is a helmet for each rider, unlimited mileage, two nights accommodations, hotel pickup and drop off, and free luggage storage. All you need to bring is a current motorcycle license and a minimum of one year of experience riding heavyweight motorcycles.
The accommodations are typically at 3-star hotels that are motorcycle friendly. Meals are at own expense.
Leave the glitter of Las Vegas for a challenging ride into the wide open desert of Death Valley. Considered a motorcycling playground by locals, Death Valley offers an eerily beautiful landscape of sand dunes, canyons, desert and hidden wildlife. It is also a land of record-breaking extremes: the hottest temperatures recorded in the USA at 134°F (57°C), and the lowest elevation point at Badwater, 282 feet (86m) below sea level.
You’ll ride west to Pahrump then take Hwy 190 into Death Valley, located about 135 miles (217km) from Vegas. Spend the night in Furnace Creek where a visitor center, museum and Death Valley National Park headquarters are located.
Overnight: 3-star hotel, Furnace Creek
Day 2: Death Valley – Kingman
Depart from Death Valley and head south on highway 127, which will take you all the way down to Baker. Continue across the Mojave National Preserve, a vast open wilderness of Joshua trees, sand dunes and volcanic remains. Experience the serenity and solitude of this landscape before continuing to Needles and crossing the Colorado River to enter the state of Arizona. You’ll take I-40 all the way into Kingman, known as the ‘Heart of Historic Route 66.’
Overnight: 3-star hotel, Kingman
Day 3: Kingman – Las Vegas
From Kingman, you’ll motor north on Hwy 93 to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Constructed in the 1930s, Hoover Dam is an engineering marvel, damming the Colorado River to make the electricity that powers the southwest, including Las Vegas. The dam also created Lake Mead, one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States. Take a spin along Lake Mead's 11-mile scenic drive, following Lakeshore Road. You can stop at the main visitor center, ride to scenic viewpoints or down to the lake. At the end of your trip, return to Las Vegas where you’ll drop off your motorcycle.
