Yea some of the views on this trip were amazing, Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley really are something else!
I have been wanting to do this for years so I thought sod it you are a long time dead.....just do it! http://www.ridewithustours.co.uk/guided-motorcycle-tours/cowboys-and-canyons-tour/  check out the link.

The Harley was brilliant!  There are a lot of people out there that will tell you they don't go, don't handle and won't stop. Funnily enough most of these views are from people who have never even riden one! This could not be further from the truth. About 80% of this tour is on twisty windy roads and some of them more demanding than I have ever come across in the UK or Europe (including the Alps)and it handled everything brilliantly. Also on the long long straight roads it is very comfortable, probably the most comfortable bike I have ever riden.

I didn't think the Harley would be as bad as some people claim. I have never tried one myself but I test rode a Triumph America a while ago and found that to handle well and it was very comfortable. You certainly need a comfortable bike for the sort of mileages you did on the tour. I had a look at the link and it looks absolutely fantastic. Very tempting but I might have to save up for a while first though!
