EagleRider Pacific Coast Guided Motorcycle Tour

Enjoy the freedom of the open road

Feel the wind in your hair and the ocean spray in your face as you take part in this fantastic 15 day Pacific Coast Escorted Motorcycle Tour.

Enjoy the changing scenery as you stop along the way in sleepy seaside towns and vital cities such as San Francisco with its mix of hippy freedom and sophisticated city living to the laid back living you'll find in Newport, Oregon. 

Enjoy the spectacular scenery of Washington, Oregon and Northern California and keep your eye on the Pacific Ocean as you make your way down Highway One and you may be lucky enough to spot breaching whales on their annual migration.
