Visit in USA

Hello has all !

I would want to correspond with Beemer in private. With my wife we have a project to go on a trip in the USA from New York to Philadelphie, Washington, Miami, Key West, New Orléans, Menphis, Niagara Falls and New York in the 3 weeks.

We live in the South of France and we were never in the USA. At present we have K1200LT of 99 for 10 years. I have a home-made trailer with the back which looks like our motorcycle.

For our visit, we shall rent a Harley in New York (I have never drive an Harlay Davidson !!!), more practical for the visit than the car. If people can inform us afterward, thanks to all!

My email : [email protected]

This year, we go 4 week in La Réunion (over sea, océan Indien) et next year in august at St Petersbourg (Russia). For USA, it's in 2016, june or juliet.. We don't know now.

We speak English, but not very well.

Laurent and Céline

Re: Visit in USA

Welcome to the site. If you have any questions, travel planning or otherwise, you'll find someone here can provide advise or answers. There are a number of European riders here who have experience visiting the US, renting bikes, etc.

Be prepared as June and July will likely be hot and humid, especially as you go farther south toward Key West.

Talking Re: Visit in USA

OK.
I think that we are going to set one week of holidays in February, 2015 to make just Florida and marry us at the same time. Honeymoons and holidays discovery...
We shall return in 2016 as expected for 3 weeks. If somebody can inform us about wedding formalities on Miami or other cities...
Thank you very much. Bye for now!

Re: Visit in USA

Don't worry about your English, it is easy to understand what you say. Most people in the USA are very relaxed and unconcerned when some one does not have English as their "native" language.

This person Ari has done a lot of riding here in the USA, including renting a motorcycle:

I'm guessing that if you contact him via eMail he will have a lot of excellent information and tips for you.

Few people in the USA have every heard of La Réunion Island. In the late 70s I became a ham radio operator and by talking with people all over the world learned a lot about where countries and small Islands are. Reunion is almost as far away from here as one can go before starting to return to here. I think Saint Brandon is almost half way around the Earth from where I live in the USA, Tucson, AZ

I used to talk with people on Europa Island, Glorioso Islands, Juan de Nova Island, and Tromelin Island.

Best wishes from Tucson Arizona
