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
