‏ Ride with Henry Cole on 90th Anniversary of Route 66‏

Posted on


To celebrate the creation of Route 66 in 1926, Orange & Black is organising a special celebratory tour led by guide Bear (Gary Fleshman) and they are delighted to announce a very special tour guest: Henry Cole, TV motorcycle tour show presenter.

Henry says: 

"Route 66 was a road that changed my life. So much so that I made not one but two TV programmes featuring the ‘Mother Road’.There is no ribbon of road like Route 66. Every mile is steeped in automotive history, along this boulevard of dreams lie the first petrol station, the first road side diners, the first motels, all to cater for the new breed of automotive traveller. Every day you feel you're riding in your very own road movie but it's your reality as you ride your Harley on America’s Main Street. The 90th Anniversary of Route 66 seems like the perfect opportunity to celebrate the World’s most iconic road especially in the company of Bear, Orange & Black's walking talking all-American encyclopaedia of Route 66 guide, who's travelled it nearly 150 times! If you speak to anyone Bear has been on tour with they will tell you just how much of a unique experience it is. 

Starting in Chicago on 30 September 2016, they have just 15 shiny new 2016 Harley-Davidsons available and they will ride all the way to Santa Monica Pier, with a full service support vehicle. He’ll be stopping at some of the great little places that Bear knows on the Orange & Black Route 66 Guided Tour, meet some of his personal friends, and of course I want to take you to some of the places that I really want to visit again that you’ll recognise from my TV programmes.

David at Orange & Black told me of a comment he received from a customer who had just completed his second tour with Bear. When asked what his single favourite moment was, he said ‘Chicago to LA’. I know exactly what he means. It’s going to be a great ride and a fun-filled two weeks on the road - I do hope you will join us!"
