Moggy-- A good place would be https://www.eaglerider.com.  They rent Harleys and other bikes and have been around for 20-years.  Another would be the Travel section of my site https://www.rt66pix.com which has basic info plus links to motorcycle museums along the road.  I've also compiled a gallery of 73 motorcycle images.

Although I'm not a biker, I can recommend a couple of very popular bike-riding areas.  One is from roughly Tulsa OK to Arcadia OK, northeast of Oklahoma City.  Heavy traffic is on a Turnpike.  

Another is Northwest Arizona, roughly Seligman through Peach Springs, Kingman, Oatman and Topock.  This section takes you well away from the Interstates and has some real mountain driving.  

Finally, the desert stretch of CA, roughly Needles to Barstow.  Bikers make up a high proportion of road users in all these areas.
