Hello! Welcome to The Lost Adventure. We are a motorcycle touring company and an Official EagleRider Agent, offering their full line of guided and self-guided tours, and bike hire. We specialize in motorcycle tours of America. We collectively possess 20+ years of experience running tours, and have hundreds of thousands of touring miles under our wheels. And we add to that number every year, because like you, we’re riders.
We work with EagleRider simply because they’re the best in the business. They’ve got over 70 locations in the United States, and a fleet of 2,000+ motorcycles – bikes from Harley Davidson, BMW, Honda, Triumph and other manufacturers. We’ve got the most competitive rates on EagleRider bike hire as well as their guided and self-drive tours, and are an EagleRider preferred agent.
About The Lost Adventure EagleRider Agent: Why is our company called The Lost Adventure? we’d say: well, remember when you were in your teens, or just out of them, and you first got keen on bikes? Remember pouring over magazines, reading up the spec on the latest models, and thinking, “One day, I’m going to get on my bike, point it at the sunset and just ride.” For whatever reason, whether it was hard work, raising a family, or simply not having the free time, many of us postponed those dreams. We started the company to help you bring those lost adventures back to life.
Why book with us? Three reasons: 1) Simply because you’ll have a better trip when you book through us. We’ve ridden over 200,000 miles in America and have tips and suggestions about what to see, where to eat, stay and avoid; 2) We’re a fully bonded company, members of the Travel Trust Association, which means your money is protected. Before you book with anyone, ask them if your money is secure, and how; and 3) we’ve got the most competitive prices online.
Have questions about our trips, Route 66, Coast To Coast, riding in America, or hiring a bike? Want to discuss a bespoke trip that we’ll build with you from the ground up? Give us a call or send an email . We’d love to help you.
As the former Managing Director of Big Rock Bike Holidays, Tim Orr has over 15 years of experience running motorcycle holidays. Started in 1996 under Tim’s guidance, Big Rock took away thousands of customers to World Superbike and MotoGP races and on riding holidays around the globe. Tim’s business relationships with premier companies including the Suzuki MotoGP team, Suzuki Alstare WSBK, Corona, SBK International, and EagleRider speaks volumes about his integrity and abilities. After selling Big Rock to a corporate entity, Tim decided to start a new company that is the culmination of everything he’s learned on the roads and racing paddocks around the world. So after a short break (because who doesn’t deserve a vacation after 15 years!) sailing his catamaran around the Med, Tim launched The Lost Adventure with Jim in late 2010.
Jim has been writing about motorcycles for various online and print publications since 2001, and has tested a huge assortment of bikes, including Troy’s Bayliss’s 2008 WSBK Championship winning 1098 Factory Xerox Ducati. He’s based in New York, and has planned and guided riding holidays with Tim since 2005. Jim and Tim met in 2001, when Jim came away as a client to the Valencia WSBK round, and they became best mates. One of Jim’s unique talents includes being able to decipher the arcane fueling system used by American petrol stations, which has proven invaluable on countless trips! Jim’s written and photographic work appears here on our website, and regularly on SuperbikePlanet, and in the Soupkast racing podcast on iTunes.
