Hi, my husband and I are looking at coming over to America ( From New Zealand ) Next May. It has been his bucket list to ride route 66 on a Harley for ever …we had it all planned a couple of years ago then covid.
Since then , my health has deteriorated ( I have a bad back ) am I am very limited to how long I could sit behind him on a bike ( maybe 4 days MAX ) . But I don't want him to miss out on at least doing some of it, He said he wont do any of it without me.
So my question is....can you do tours (or hire a bike ) , starting mid way, or even further along ? and where do you think would be the best place to start ?
We also want to go to Las Vegas ... and then on to California where his sister we don't mind stopping before Los Vegas/California and flying etc...I just would really like to know where would be a great place to start and finish in that time frame ? or is it just not worth it ? Thank so much 🙂

So I have been to New Zealand 4 times and love it. I have a 1966 convertible mustang and have been thinking about doing about half the route by myself, starting in the Midwest and ending in CA. I may be open to taking a passenger and your husband can ride a bike. If I supply the car, would you be open to cover all of the ground expenses not including food or hotels?
