Hello, my name is Antonio Ribas and I coordinate the European operations for River Pilot Tours.
Based in Spain, I have been riding motorcycles for over 35 years. I started at a young age riding small displacement bikes in the Spanish countryside (Puch Minicross, Ducati Senda) followed by zooming down motorways when I was of legal age. Some of those old bikes are real classic bikes nowadays: Bultaco Metralla, Guzzi 850 Le Mans, Suzuki 750 GSX…
Thirteen years ago I discovered the real pleasure of riding by just enjoying the sites on top of a Harley Davidson with friends.
I have been a proud owner of a HD Road King, a HD Ultra Classic Electra Glide and currently plan and coordinate European rides with my fellow friends while riding my Harley Davidson Street Glide.
In 2010 I met River Pilot on a tour of U.S. Route 66, from Chicago to L.A. enjoying its nearly 2,400 miles of roads crossing the U.S. from east to west. What a way to start a friendship.
On just my Harley Davidson alone, I have traveled over 93,000 miles around Europe, actively participating in various events with the local HD chapters and a wide group of HD partners, planning the best possible itineraries that show the many historical, monumental and outstanding landscapes that Europe can offer.
A common meeting point is near Madrid at a favorite motorcycle destination called Bar 66, where the conversations fly around motorcycles, the next possible European journeys and of course, Route 66.
Here in this sacred spot, surrounded by good friends and cold drinks, decisions about routes, hotels, best food and sights are all made about where the next River Pilot Tour will go on on a European jaunt.
In the strictly professional matter, I obtained a degree in economic sciences with an MBA and have worked in U.S. and European multinationals involving Technology Information (IT).
Come ride with me and our team while in the E.U.
