Insurance is a very important matter for everybody travelling by motorcycle. We feel therefore, that it is important that you clearly understand matters and set out the relevant information below.

1. Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI)

All packages include a basic insurance for which the amount of cover varies from State to State. We strongly recommend that you give very serious consideration to taking the optional SLI as this increases your Liability Insurance Benefit up to US$1million. This insurance protects the renter against claims made by a Third Party for bodily injury and/or property damage sustained as a result of an accident.

2. EVIP Insurance

This policy is applicable to the motorcycle ONLY. It limits the liability of the renter:

  • in the event of any and all accidental damage to the motorcycle and its accessories.
  • the loss/theft of the vehicle provided the motorcycle was locked with all locks provided by the rental company.
  • in the event of mechanical breakdown requiring repair for more than 12 hours, the renter is provide with up to $75/day for a replacement rental + refund of daily rate.
  • covers the cost of tire repair/labour, but towing is NOT covered.
  • A Security Deposit of $300 will be taken upon collection of the motorcycle

IMPORTANT: A police report is required for all damages or accidents. All damages to rented motorcycle without a police report is considered the Renter’s fault.

3. Personal Travel Insurance

Your travel insurance policy must include repatriation to Ireland of patients by Air Ambulance or other medically approved means of transportation where it is deemed as preferable by the Medical Adviser of the Insurance Underwriters.

Please check closely the terms of cover provided by any travel insurance policy that you are offered or already hold. In our experience, most policies only provide cover for motorcycles up to 125cc which is not sufficient as most motorcycle models in use on the EagleRider tours range between 1200cc and 1800cc.

Celtic Horizon Tours will be happy to assist in obtaining quotations for suitable travel insurance cover should you require our assistance in this matter.

How many people are in a group?

We allow a maximum of 15 bikes per group. At rare occasions there can be a few more bikes but if the number exceeds 15 we may add a second tour guide on a motorcycle to the group.

Will I receive some kind of information about my tour before I arrive?

A road book for each specific tour will be sent to you via email as a pdf file; the book contains all important and necessary information about your tour, route, general information, etc.

Will there be enough photo stops on a guided tour?

While one just likes to ride and is hardly to be kept off his bike another may want to stop every five minutes to get this very special photo shot. We try to find a good average of stops to accommodate everyone’s needs.

Can I book additional nights before or after the tour through Celtic Horizon Tours?

Yes, we are happy to book additional accommodation before or after the tour for you. Please be aware that once an additional reservation has been made any changes or cancellation will result in a €50 handling fee per occurrence. Reservations for additional nights must be made at time of booking.

What is the weather going to be like?

If you’ve all been good the weather will be too…honestly, we can never be certain; this is one factor on our tours that we still haven’t been able to influence. In general you can say that during mid summer months you have a 90% chance of staying dry and hot weather on any of our tours. It’ll always be a little cool along the west coast and you can always expect some rain along Route 66. Please come prepared, bring your raingear and a variety of clothing to be armed for all weather conditions.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

For your own safety we require you to wear a helmet at all times when you ride a motorcycle.

Do all bikes have a windshield?

The only models that are equipped with a windshield are Electra GlideRoad GlideRoad King and Heritage Softail, and BMW. Especially during mid summer you will face very hot temperatures on your rides. A windshield will not only hold off dust and stones but also keep away direct hot air to your body.


  • If a person decides to travel without any travel insurance cover, they do so explicitly at their own risk, against our advice, and are deemed to absolve Celtic Horizon Tours Ltd, its employees, agents, suppliers and various affiliates of all and any responsibility and/or liability.
  • The prices shown are in respect of 2 pax + 1 bike sharing a twin / double room. Prices are also available on request for 2 pax + 2 bikes sharing a twin / double room, or 1 pax + 1 bike staying in a single room.

DAY 1 Denver, CO - Arrival 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

Welcome to the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado. Today begins the first day of the tour with the arrival at your beautiful hotel located in the heart of downtown Denver. Tonight we will enjoy a nice Welcome Dinner in the city where you will have a chance to meet your fellow riders and talk about the journey ahead.

DAY 2 Denver, CO – Casper,WY 278.0 mi / 444.8 km

This is the moment that most motorcycle riders around the world only dream of as we turn our bikes north and start our incredible journey towards the Sturgis Black Hills Rally. The great Rocky Mountain city of Denver will soon be in our rear view mirrors as busy interstates give way to wide open spaces and two lane roads that seem as if they were built with our group in mind. This is the beginning of an epic ride!

DAY 3 Casper, WY – Rapid City, SD 253.0 mi / 404.8 km

It is difficult for some to think about today’s ride because Sturgis is waiting just 242 short miles away, however, our ride is just as good as the destination. We’ll turn east and cross the vast expanse of the Thunder Basin National Grassland, 572,000 acres of lush rolling grass hills and flatlands that were once home to great Buffalo herds. As we wind down our ride for the day we enter the Black Hills National Forest. The name “Black Hills” comes from the Lakota words Paha Sapa, which mean “hills that are black.” Soak in the warm sun and the mystique of the “Paha Sapa”, a place so rich in Native American and U.S. history that you almost feel like you are stepping back in time.

DAY 4 Rapid City, SD - Sturgis Black Hills Rally 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

Let’s shake off the dust from our first evening in Sturgis and go for a ride. There are a multitude of day ride opportunities to choose from. You can take in one of the organized trips, venture off on your own, or simply take the short trip back to downtown Sturgis to take in all that is Sturgis.

DAY 5 Sturgis Black Hills Rally – Rapid City, SD 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

Enjoy a day ride or head back to town for another crazy day.

DAY 6 Sturgis Black Hills Rally – Rapid City, SD 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

Day ride with the group or head back to Sturgis for another crazy day.

DAY 7 Sturgis Black Hills Rally – Rapid City, SD 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

This is the last day to enjoy Sturgis. Let your imagination run wild!

DAY 8 Rapid City, SD – Cheyenne, WY 273.0 mi / 436.8 km

We’ll sleep in just a bit and hit the road late morning after a nice breakfast. The good news is we will start the journey to Cheyanne with one last trip through the Black Hills of South Dakota. The ride to Cheyanne is as beautiful as any of the day trips we have enjoyed over the past four days. Tonight we will enjoy some true cowboy hospitality and some of the finest steaks in Montana.

DAY 9 Cheyenne, WY – Denver, CO 148.0 mi / 236.8 km

The final riding leg of our journey is not a long one, but definitely one to remember. We’ll take one last ride through the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains before easing our way back into the city life that has seemed a million miles away for the past nine days. Tonight we will celebrate together and raise a glass to the accomplishment of a lifelong dream for most motorcycle riders, as we simply toast to “Sturgis.”

DAY 10 Denver, CO - Departure 0.0 mi / 0.0 km

Thanks for a great Sturgis Tour, and we will see you all on next year’s adventure!
