The ultimate sightseeing ride through THE most stunning countryside (and we do have pretty spectacular spaces in Cape Town..), having made the acquaintance of Axel from Lind Tours in Guilford, Surrey - the hospitality shown me at Harley Davidson, of which Lind is a part - with the very best coffee was a welcome start to a very cold morning! Having made our way from Guildford winding through Petworth, and Midhurst…from castles, pubs..the most enduring symbol of English country life..to the enormous bonfire stacks being set up across Surrey - for the fireworks displays which take place from late October to mid November in celebration of a British tradition dating back to Gunpower Plot of 1605 when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament - continued through the most picturesque autumn countryside colours and simply doing what I enjoy immensely, as pillion!!

Brilliant, enjoyed every minute
Colin, Rider of "The Fast One", Oct 2016
It was a fantastic experience. Especially for a woman of my later years. At no time did I feel unsafe. I had a permanent smile on my face for the whole journey. Thank you Axel for making it a great day

The mini tour was exactly what I needed in order to experience riding a Harley for the first time. We are riding Route 66 later in the year and getting the 'feel' for the bike on home turf is better than having to do this in the middle of Chicago.
Mike, Rider of "The Fast One", Jul 2016
Perfect introduction to H-D
Andrew, Rider of "The Fast One", Jul 2016
First class, Axel was informative, friendly and professional. Definitely doing it again, thank you, a great Xmas gift
Adrian, Rider of "The Fast One", June 2016
Despite atrocious weather the Harley behaved impeccably. Axel made the trip a most enjoyable experience
Bill, Rider of "The Scenic One", Nov 2015
Absolutely loved this tour. Was a bit nervous as it was my first time on such a big motorcycle (heritage softail), but I soon got used to the bike. This tour had a great variety of roads and scenery. I will definitely be back for another tour in the future!
Edward, Rider of "The Fast One", Nov 2015
A wonderful day out, would highly recommend. A great way to experience riding a harley and the route couldn't have been better. Axel was very professional and attentive. Thank you Axel!
Sharon, Rider of "The Scenic One", Oct 2015
I usually commute on my bike, so having the chance to relax and enjoy the gentle curves of country and coastal roads was an absolute pleasure! My love for riding and the Harley Davidson machines has been ignited again. I want one!... possibly two!?
Daniel, Rider of "The Mighty One", Sep 2015
Great fun ride out on an iconic bike
Ian, Rider of "The Fast One", Sep 2015
Excellent orientation prior to Route 66
Jeff, Rider of the "Orientation Tour", Sep 2015
I have been privileged to ride with Axel through most of Western Europe and parts of North Africa. In his various roles as ride captain, back marker, and route planner Axel inspires complete confidence. He is meticulous in everything he does - he is safe, courteous and diplomatic on the road. He is one of the best Harley riders I have encountered and I would follow him and his Road King anywhere.

I have ridden with Axel and Martin on a number of occasions and I can think of no one better to lead and organise a Harley Davidson tour, due to their tremendous experience, skill as riders and personal qualities for when the ride is over for the day.
Ian Solley, 7ages Custom Motorcycles, UK, 2015
I'm planing a route 66 trip next year strongly recommend anyone doing so should try this experience first ! ***Highly Recommended***
Peter, Rider of "The Scenic One", Sep 2016
A great introduction to the Harley Davidson I will be riding in the USA next year,
Martin, Rider of the "Orientation Tour", Aug 2016
Very useful preparation for an Orange and Black USA tour. The tour guide could not have been more helpful. The overall experience was relaxed and very much centred on our current and future needs regarding riding a Harley Davison
Peter, Rider of the "Orientation Tour", Aug 2016
A perfect gift for any motorcycle enthusiast
Ben, Rider of "The Twisted One" May 2016
Fantastic tour being as I haven't been on a bike for years. Axel was a brilliant tour guide and made me feel very confident throughout the tour. It was something that I would highly recommend friends to experience. May even do another one myself. Thank you once again
Dave, Rider of "TheTwisted One", May 2016
Great fun, and ideal practice for our big tour in the US, thanks Axel!
Alex & Eva, Riders of "The Twisted One", Apr 2016
... and they went in 2016
Deividas, Rider of "The Fast One", Apr 2016
I had not ridden a motorcycle for over 25 years so was obviously a little nervous to start with, but Axel explained the functions on the bike before we set off, and I always felt in safe hands. I soon got the feel of the bike and from then on thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As a confidence builder, this 2 hour orientation tour was definitely money well spent.
Chris, Rider of "The Fast One", Feb 2016
To begin with I had never ridden a Harley before the day of my tour. I felt that Axel, my tour guide, took this into consideration when matching me with a Harley to ride. Consequently my experience was fantastic, I was allowed to progress at my own pace with Axel continuously monitoring my safety. The whole experience was brilliant and I'd thoroughly recommend it to others.
Peter, Rider of "The Twisted One", Oct 2015
Thanks to Axel, who was an excellent guide and very supportive throughout the trip, it was a very enjoyable experience. It sold me on a Harley !
Robin, Rider of "The Fast One", Oct 2015
An awesome mornings fun !! My first time out on a Harley, I loved the comfort, and I loved the varied route we followed, and Axel was informative, enthusiastic,and a great guy .
David, Rider of "The Fast One", Oct 2015
Awesome! Cant wait to book another tour and to own a Harley
Sharon, Pillion Rider of "The Fast One", Oct 2015
I had the pleasure to ride with Axel to all corners of Great Britain, it was a great experience, safe all the way, very well planned, a once in a lifetime trip to remember.”
