SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INLAND EXPLORER
This all-paved Southern California Inland Explorer motorcycle adventure was specially curated to share some of our favourite regional serpentine roads with you over six days of riding. Carve canyons or cruise at your own pace through countless impeccable curves! Our first two days of riding will have us travelling along twisty roads from one hotel to the next: Long Beach to Borrego Springs, California, through historic Oatman, Arizona, and into Laughlin, Nevada. The next three nights will be spent in Palm Springs, California, allowing us to spend more time enjoying the spectacular out-rides and less time on packing and unpacking. Our final day of riding brings the whole crew through yet another fresh set of curves and back to our Long Beach, California facility.
Road Conditions: This motorcycle tour features excellent paved, curvy roads and open highways. We created the itinerary to feature mountainous roads, deserts, and historic Route 66.
