Robb Report's 21 Ultimate Gifts: European Ride

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2002

What better way to celebrate Harley-Davidson’s 100th anniversary than with this exclusive tour through Europe? A private jet will fly you and nine of your biker friends to Germany’s Cologne- Bonn Airport, where a limousine will transport you to the palatial Schloss Bensberg Hotel, the starting point for the first leg of the tour. There, each rider will receive a Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary Electra Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle and a Harley-Davidson 100th anniversary riding outfit, which includes a helmet, a leather jacket, leather riding gloves, leather chaps, riding boots, and sunglasses. That will ready you for 13 days of superlative riding through the Black Forest, the Swiss Alps, and the Italian and French Rivieras—from 150 to 220 miles a day, more than 1,700 miles in all. You will spend your nights in first-class accommodations including the Hotel Splendide Royal on the shore of Lake Lugano in Italy and the Vista Palace Hotel in Monte Carlo. A farewell dinner at the Casino in Monte Carlo will provide the perfect end to an incredible trip.  

Price: $1,310,000 (for 10 people).
