EagleRider Introduces Pillion Tour Program for Non-Riders
Motorcycle tour operator EagleRider is launching a new program for non-riders. Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, EagleRider offers motorcycle rentals and guided motorcycle tours. Until now however, you had to have a motorcycle license or ride as a passenger with another traveler who does.
The new Pillion Ride & Day Tours programs puts people on the passenger seat behind Motorcycle Safety Foundation certified tour guides who will show them the sights. As of now, the Pillion Ride & Day Tours are only offered from EagleRider’s Florida locations but the company plans to offer the program to other locations in the future.
“For 20 years, EagleRider has been dedicated to helping our customers live the dream, giving them the ultimate thrill of riding with the wind in their hair,” says Chris McIntyre, EagleRider co-founder and president. “This program is perfect for non-riders whether they be cruise travelers looking for a new excursion at port, island hoppers wanting to seek new roads or thrill seekers thirsting to burn a little rubber. We want motorcycle riding to be accessible for everyone.”
Packages begin at $359 a person which includes the tour guide, a choice of Harley-Davidson, BMW, Honda or Triumph motorcycles, fuel and oil, helmet and jacket rental, an orientation session, lunch, discounted activities during the tour as well as a souvenir t-shirt and photograph.
