It's been a trip of firsts for a group of motorcyclists from Switzerland. And today was their first trip to Neligh, Nebraska.
The group flew into Seattle and have been traveling across the United States on their Harley Davidson motorcycles.
They are part of a motor bike club in Switzerland called the Griffen and are traveling with seven bikes and a car. Two women drive the car with the group's luggage while everyone else rides.
While most bikers that tour the U.S. choose to take Route 66, these bikers chose their route because "no one else does." They wanted to see the Midwest instead.
'It's beautiful," one biker told the Antelope County News today. "All the trees and the whole landscape."
Their trip will wrap up this weekend in Chicago, where some will fly home while others are choosing to linger in the Windy City a few more days.
The group is documenting their journey with photos and goPro footage as well.
