My wife and I are planning our trip for mid-May 2017. Our plan is to ship our motorcycle to San Francisco and then fly out there. Spend a few days traveling the Pacific Coast Highway down to Santa Monica and then head east on 66 from there. We are planning on 4 weeks.

I am looking for some suggestions on what are must-do's and what should be avoided. I am particularly interested in getting some insights from those that have done it on a motorcycle before

Seems like this forum is pretty much abandoned. Much like old route 66. Goodbye

Hello doublerunner.

I have not been able to get into the site for several days. So don't give up just yet. You may yet get some replies.

Hi, yes I think it is being tarted up!! so might not be redirecting. We were definitely surprised at the cross winds especially in New Mexico very scary, and a lot of the actual route had loose gravel sections which our hired Harley, two people and top box and panniers stuffed with luggage did not like, the back wheel slid around so much we avoided them, at one point at the end (it will be your beginning) of Missouri I ended up walking a mile while my husband gingerly edged the bike along it.

More tomorrow, I found the EZ Guide to dinning and lodging invaluable, and the Lonely Planet for things to do, a small book so easy to keep in your luggage. Sat nav useful but keep trying to default to the interstate, which you do need when the roads are in poor repair or just plain disappear!!!!

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
