i heard back from Mark @ Blackcanyon tours today


Shells conversion to sterling is prety accurate So that's £1500-£2500 per person + £500-£700 flights + £60-£70 fuel depending on whether your taking a pillion etc it's around 1500 quid each for 2 sharing bike room etc


to hire the bike n plan yourself it's $78 a day about 350 quid a week + accommodation the hub tour & road trip both include bike and accommodation the Hub tour your based in Wickenburg with rides out some take 4 days some 2 with a break for horse riding etc


however there doesn't seem to be any places for September Mark will let me have available dates and space numbers when he get's back tonight


it would be handy to know how many we have i know it's short notice for most


so if at all interested for this year please stick your name down

Sounds good and prices not bad for short tours of a few days if folks wanna do that

Matt I was talking about a USA tour months ago on here for 2013

I'd be up for it, obviously dependent on my leave dates, but that can be massaged.


So who is up for it, obviously we could get a deal on flights if there is enough of us?

Last time I looked here Johnny I think there was only me and Dabe up for it this year round about September time, I think most people wanted to wait until next year.
So no definite numbers except 2 for this year so far! Others can correct me if I am mistaken in that
There is another thread somewhere that DavidNeale started I think for next year......

I started one but Matt thought it would be too confusing, so I requested that it was deleted by a mod. Not sure if that happened. Just checked, it seems to have been deleted. I am still up for next year though. Here is a link to a proposed trip by madscot back in September 2011. Not sure whats happening on this one. http://www.bikermatch.co.uk/sites/bm/forum/posts.asp?to...amp;page=1

That threads's closed but very interesting nonetheless.

Ive driven round ( or rather my friend did the driving, I was navigator ) most of the South West US, Arizona,Utah,New Mexico,Nevada and California, we spent 4 weeks there sleeping in cheapo motels and on the move every day. But we didn't stick to Route 66 at all, in fact the only bit of it we saw or were on was in Flagstaff, Arizona.
That Western Trip that was mentioned in the thread would deffo get my vote, Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon are SO worth seeing

Lulu, all that you mentioned appeals to me and camping for me would make it more in touch with the original concept of the region. What I am also iterested in is the different music venues, there are so many good ones in the USA.
