Motorcycle Tours Pony Express

A very special Self Drive motorcycle tour in the USA is the Pony Express tour for adventurers: The legendary Pony Express carried the mail in the 19th century about 2000 miles from Chicago to Sacramento in ten days. Your road trip across the United States takes twelve days. But you will have the time to visit beautiful places such as San Francisco, Idaho Falls and the Yellowstone National Park. In the western town of Cody, visit the museum of the famous western hero Buffalo Bill, who once even rode for the Pony Express and see in Gothenburg a preserved Pony Express Station. Your Self Drive motorcycle tour through the United States ends after a stop in Des Moines in Chicago, where you drop off the motorcycle you have ridden on this trip...
