Easy Rider escorted movie tour on board a Harley Davidson
Climb aboard a powerful Harley Davidson and retrace the exact route of the iconic Easy Rider movie - made in 1969 but still considered to be the quintessential motorcycle film of all times – courtesy of US specialist, Bon Voyage.
This new escorted itinerary, on offer on a choice of dates in 2013, travels from the highways of southern California, to the unforgiving depths of Death Valley, along the historic roads of Route 66 and ends in New Orleans, still a mecca for bikers after Easy Rider’s debut some 43 years ago.
The 14-night road trip is accompanied by experienced tour guides who will not only take bikers to the roads immortalised in the movie – including the exact spot at Krotz Springs in Louisiana where Wyatt and Billy (played by Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) were shot – but will also show guests behind-the-scenes movie props and share stories told by the movie director before his death.
The journey of 2,718 miles begins in Los Angeles and bikers will be in the company of fellow like-minded travellers from around the world.
The cost of £6515 per person for this ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity includes return flights from Heathrow, Manchester or Glasgow, hotel accommodation with breakfast, welcome and farewell dinners and late model Harley Davidson motorbike hire such as a Softail or Road King.
The package also includes unlimited mileage, fuel and oil, services of professional tour leaders, support vehicle back up, national park entrance fees and custom riding jacket.
