This is a BYOB trip meaning Bring Your Own Bike. The Four Corners Tour combines the wide-open expanse of Arizona, the tranquil deserts of New Mexico, the rugged Colorado Rockies, as well as the majesty of Utah’s Monument Valley. Four Corners is named for the spot in the American Southwest where four states meet. It is an intersection not only of four states, but a meeting point of prehistoric landscapes, indigenous people, majestic mountains, and modern evolution—especially in terms of exceptional riding on well-maintained roads.
The Four Corners Blue Rim Tour offers an especially rare view of this great country’s diversity from the seat of a motorcycle. Exploring this region on two wheels provides a unique riding experience, allowing for a closer connection to its exquisite natural wonders and an appreciation for the natural beauty that transcends the dynamic—and sometimes harsh—landscape. From Monument Valley to the Rocky Mountains, and the Grand Canyon to the Mesa Verde National Park, you will ride through a rich tapestry of American history for a truly memorable motorcycling experience.
As an added bonus the tour includes riding Colorado’s serpentine “Million Dollar Highway,” an idyllic motorcycle route, which snakes through the Rocky Mountains. With true million-dollar views, this 50-mile stretch starts in Durango, CO and winds its way through grand vistas of unequaled beauty and abandoned mining facilities, arriving in the quirky town of Ouray, the ice-climbing capital of the world.
Starting and ending in Las Vegas this 13-day vacation (of which ten are full ride days) will traverse an amazingly full 2,050 miles, with ride days averaging a comfortable and leisurely 205 miles. The tour was specifically planned around a mild time of year, with average daytime temperatures of 80˚F, making for optimum riding weather. Join us for the adventurer’s essential American Southwest road trip.

The hotels are three- and four-star establishments. You will appreciate the modern amenities of the hotels juxtaposed against the rich, Old West settings. We will either eat breakfast at the hotel or travel to a restaurant nearby before starting our tour for the day. We will stop for lunch while on the road, and in the evenings, we will stop for dinner on the way to the hotel or eat at the hotel restaurant. Casual clothes for evenings are fine; there’s no need for formal wear.
If you trailer your bike to Las Vegas, then you can park the trailer securely on the first hotel's parking lot.
The group will be between 6 and 12 riders.
Roads and Traffic
Most of the tour route will involve two-lane, asphalt roads. There will be increased traffic and possibly some parking challenges at National Park Service locations. Road surfaces are generally in very good condition, except for some of the less maintained, more remote roads. There will be frequent curves and elevation changes on many of the routes. Several mountain passes will exceed 10,000 feet. The pace will be kept moderate with frequent stops at historic sites and for comfort as needed.
Bringing Your Own Motorcycle
We will be riding at least 2,050 miles or 3,299 km during this tour. Please make sure that your motorcycle is properly serviced beforehand. Tires should have adequate tread life remaining.
A rental motorcycle is not included. If you plan to rent one, Blue Rim Tours recommends the following rental company:

Minimum Tour Requirement
We reserve the right to cancel any tour if the number of participants booked does not meet the minimum requirement to operate the trip or due to force majeure.

Because we will be riding in high desert and mountainous terrain, temperatures can fluctuate significantly, likely range between 50 and 80 degrees, but possibly cooler at the high mountain passes. Dress in several layers so you can easily adjust to changing weather conditions. In case of heavy rain or other inclement weather, we will choose the shortest route to the next hotel whenever possible.
