About HEAVY DUTY Motorcycle tours
Join HEAVY DUTY for an unforgettable ride across the USA. The scenery is breathtaking as we ride through some of America’s most spectacular landscapes, including Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon, Beartooth, Canyonlands and Yellowstone!
HEAVY DUTY has been hosting organised motorcycle tours in the USA since 2003. Our first was a memorable odyssey from San Francisco across country to Milwaukee for the 100th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson. It was an epic tour. We shipped nearly 400 bikes and filled two jumbo jets with Aussies keen to join in!
HEAVY DUTY Motorcycle Tours was registered as a Travel Agency in 2011. This came about after HEAVY DUTY Magazine hosted Reader Tours to the USA and the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota every year after 2003. The initial tours were very basic with HEAVY DUTY readers and enthusiasts departing LA and riding through the USA. Over the years, our tours have finessed into the meticulously planned events we offer today. Our rides offer an experience unparalleled by any other motorcycle tour companies.
HEAVY DUTY Motorcycle Tours is proudly Australia’s ONLY Harley-Davidson Authorised Tour Operator.
HEAVY DUTY Motorcycle Tours know what works and what makes an awesome trip! Our rides to the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally have grown from strength to strength and over the years we have taken hundreds of riders to the USA to enjoy the scenic routes, National Parks, little American towns and major events. Our tours are hosted by fellow Australian riders. We hand-pick our accommodation. We are selective on our routes on where to stop, where to ride and where to avoid. Our fuel stops are streamlined, quick and efficient. When in Sturgis we stay right in the heart of the town so you can walk to to downtown in minutes, unlike some tours who stay over 30 minutes away in Rapid City.
Our tours are the best on offer and include bike hire, fuel, accommodation, back up vehicle, National Park entries, cold drinks and snacks daily during rides, Welcome dinner, Farewell dinner, accommodation right in the heart of Sturgis for the Rally week – and to top it all off – you’ll be featured in HEAVY DUTY Magazine when the trip is over.
All tour leaders are Aussies with extensive knowledge of the USA and all tour leaders have first aid training and are experienced in managing and leading group rides.
HEAVY DUTY Magazine and HEAVY DUTY Motorcycle Tours are Australian companies. Directors are husband and wife team Neale and Viv Brumby. Both have been in the publishing and motorcycle industry for over 25 years, while HEAVY DUTY Magazine continues to be highly respected and widely read by the motorcycle community.
It’s time you ticked this off your bucket list and join one of our incredible USA rides!
