Cuba on Harley Davidsons – 9 Days.

Cuba Tours on Harley Davidsons – Departure 07 – 15 May 2018

There’s nothing new about motorcycle touring vacations, but sometimes there’s an attraction that makes a destination irresistible.

Here in Cuba, Ernesto Guevara March, 52, is not only a child of the revolution, he is the son of the famous ‘Che’ Guevara whose iconised portrait adorns everything from T-Shirts, postage stamps and fridge magnets to tenement walls and government buildings. Ernesto  operates ‘La Poderosa Tours’ out of Havana with his Greek-born wife, Maria Elena. Anyone who has seen the film or read the book, ‘Motorcycle Diaries’, will know instantly the significance of ‘La Poderosa’.

The fleet of 14 bikes used by La Poderosa Tours are modern Harley Davidson models such as ElectraGlides, StreetGlides and Dynas.
