Specifically designed battlefield tours on a rental Harley-Davidson motor cycle for American, Canadian and Australian riders! Operated exclusively with Lind Tours, the UK's leading Harley-Davidson authorised Tour Operator. Riding your own Harley-Davidson, each itinerary is designed to closely follow in the footsteps of the men who fought here long ago, riding primarily on scenic country back-roads and taking in the different battlefields/towns and areas of major interest specific to your country of origin. Besides visiting the battlefields where your family/ancestors fought 100 years ago we will be including plenty of great riding time to visit chateaux, wineries and other places of interest!
Each tour will have a maximum of 14 Harley-Davidson bikes including two bike tour leaders and also employ the services of one of our qualified battlefield tour guides for all the key battle locations we visit in Europe (France, Belgium, Holland etc).
