Brand new for May is the world’s first Easy Rider tour, based on the Hollywood classic starring Peter Fonda. The 15 day tour will offer participants the chance to visit exact locations where the movie was filmed and ride from the highways of Southern California, to Death Valley, Monument Valley to Taos, New Mexico, then across the plains of Texas down to New Orleans to experience the jazz and blues music and to celebrate Billy and Wyatt style. Furthermore, riders will get to see behind the scenes movie props and hear stories told to members of the EagleRider team by the late director, as well as stand on actual locations the film was shot. Tour participants will also be given the opportunity to ride the brand new Captain America bike that EagleRider has commissioned, giving a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive a piece of motorcycling and cinematic history. The tour will be offered six times throughout 2013, starting in May and ending in October.
