A bridge blast from the past (1864)—the West Cornwell Covered Bridge, U.S. Route 7, Connecticut.

You’ve heard about guided motorcycle tours in Italy, Africa and the Swiss Alps. But there are also many domestic touring companies right here in the United States will show you the very best roads and sights that America has to offer.

Why go on a guided tour? So you can enjoy the open road and take in the best sights without having to worry about where the next turn is or where you’ll sleep that night. And if you have problems with your motorcycle, fixing it is usually somebody else’s responsibility. You’ll also have a whole new group of friends with whom to enjoy dinner at the end of a day’s ride.

This is a listing of companies that run scheduled, guided motorcycle tours in the United States using rental motorcycles—either their own fleet or rented from a local source—and most have a chase vehicle along to carry your luggage and gear, and to deal with mechanical issues that may occur en route. Some companies also allow you to ride your own bike, but check for any restrictions. The information here is provided by the companies, and not guaranteed by Rider.

If you decide to schedule a guided tour, be sure to check the cancellation policy and consider trip cancellation insurance. And check the fine print of your medical insurance policy to make sure it covers you for a motorcycle riding vacation. Consider a medical evacuation policy as well. It can pay the extra costs needed to helicopter you out of a jam.

Other tips? Be sure to ask about the guides’ experience. Do they carry satellite phones in remote locations? Are there spare bikes available if one stops running? And finally, bring your camera and enjoy the tour!
