A ride on old Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles has been referred to as the “ultimate road trip”. 66 was officially removed from the United States Highway System in 1985, but the dream of riding the “Mother Road” is a goal for more people now than ever before (especially since Billy Connelly’s Route 66 programme ran on ITV.) 66 is a travel photographer’s dream, both the people and the places are rich with character. We often pull over and spend 15 minutes taking shots of some abandoned motel or gas station, and saddle up only to pull over again five minutes down the road for more photos! Make sure to bring plenty of memory cards on your Route 66 tour, as you’ll likely snap more than anywhere else you’ve toured – the photo opps are nearly endless.

      Hello Sheriff;

      Firstly, we’d say two weeks is not enough time to “ride around the USA” if you plan on seeing anything. It takes about 14 days to ride Coast To Coast at anything near a leisurely pace where you’ll be able to do backroads. You really need to do the research and planning before you get to the USA, it’s such a huge country. Start by picking some places you’d really like to see, then connect a route between them, and pick the roads. We find Michelin maps to be essential tools for doing this, as well as Google maps. If you want to hire a motorcycle or book a tour where everything is pre-arranged, we can help you, just email me at [email protected] Thanks! Jim
