Planning a motorcycle ride from Ottawa Canada to LA via Route 66. Would like to experience as much of the original highway as possible. Have been looking for references that will show where one can exit the State or interstate highways but not a lot out there. Anyone know if anything exists?

If you’re serious about the trip, invest a few dollars in the EZ66 Guide which Steve offers in the “Shop” section.
If you merely want to sample a few places, these Interstates roughly parallel Route 66: I-55 (Chicago to St Louis); I-44 (St Louis to Oklahoma City); I-40 (Oklahoma City to Barstow CA); I-15 (Barstow to San Bernardino CA). In some cases, Route 66 is an Interstate frontage road or just a short distance away.
But with all the big trucks and bad pavement, Chicago to LA on the Interstates is punishing–even in a nice car.
By contrast, Route 66 has many stretches of original pavement (or at least original alignment) that make for an enjoyable ride, especially on a motorcycle.

Its a small world. I’m leaving from Gatineau for the same trip (May), 4 guys on bikes. I have my full itinerary but I’m looking for a turn-by-turn guide that I can use on a motorcycle. The riverpilot GPX seems best but doesn’t support zumo motorcycle GPS models. the IOS apps seem to be hit-and-miss, not sure what we’ll end up using. I’d love to know what you plan to use. let me know, thx
