I’m from the uk and never road abroad before I’d be grateful for any tips or advice from guys who have done a similar trip.. I have no time scale to adhere to. Many thanks

This list is perfect and I also fully agree with the comments about Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (boring), and Ted Simon’s books Jupiter’s Travels and Dreaming of Jupiter (fascinating). I’m 61, been riding almost 12 years again (rode motocross 45 years ago). Just got bitten by the adventure bug after a 9 day trip up to Montana and Idaho. Already planning a 2-week trip from Reno out to Hwy 1 and down the coast to take the Rawhyde course this September.

Unfortunately we don’t have any bikes that fit the A2 requirements. You will need a full A licence Im afraid.

I have been riding for around 4 years.
Thank you.

Comment on 10 Tips For Riding Route 66 by Tim Orr https://www.thelostadventure.com/10-tips-for-riding-route-66/#comment-1059 Fri, 25 Jan 2019 10:29:40 +0000 https://www.thelostadventure.com/?p=3606#comment-1059 Hi Steve

That timeframe is absolutely possible but what I would say is one, ride East to West not the other way. Not only does the ride East to West get better and better you also punch through any weather you might hit. Riding West to East can mean riding in the same weather system for several days if you’re unlucky. Also missing California is a mistake as some of the best riding on the route are in California. Finally make sure you find insurance before you book shipping as the only company offering cover dropped it cover last year.
Have a great ride and if you’re interested in a rental let us know.
Cheers
Tim

Our plans are to ship bikes to Arizona, possibly Flagstaff area – maybe take first day or 2 to hit Grand Canyon, – nobody in the group has any interest in riding into California. Using Downloaded 66 (gps) map to ride back to the east on 66 & taking 2 full weeks. Will we miss much by riding that route? Will probably take your advice & go for September. I prefer to not ride that route in the dog days of summer! I purchased the EZ66 guide years ago in anticipation of a trip – which kept getting pushed off. Now I just have to find the thing again. Any input? Thanks

For bike insurance there is no equivalent to the personel policy you can take out with hire cars. This is just a matter of volume and risk for insurance companies. The advantage I have found using the rental companies own policy is there is no come back at all. With the private policy on cars if you damage the car you have to pay the hire company and then claim back, not always an easy thing to do.
Cheers
Tim
