Looks like a fun route to me. Only question I have is this: Are you just moving to Denver or will you be returning home in Fl :?: :wink: :wink:

Regarding the route from Nebraska to Mexico...will you be putting your bike on a plane or are you just going to put wings on the wing?

You have the mileage, but your sure missing the best places. Stay off those major roads, Even that one going north through New Mexico is a rip off... You need to do it on hiway 550 all the way to montrose. That gives you all the good roads.

I suspected Jan would just mount a set of knoby tires for that leg of the trip.

Des Moines

Be sure to honk and wave on the way through Des Moines. We're really kind of friendly here...........

And I agree with KA7W on sticking with Hwy 550 through Colorado. We did it last June and had a blast. The road was very good, and the sights were fantastic. Even towing the Aluma, we were able to make very good time on the roads.

Looking at that route, I think it is safe to say he will be running into EVERYBODY ON THE PLANET!!!!

It looks as though we'll be crossing paths three times. We'll be on the white one, we'll wave at you each time.

strogly consider going thru Arkaskas. Hwy 7. Eureka Spring is an interesting town.

Do the Talimena Scenic Drive from Mena, Arkansas to Talihina, OK. VERY nice along the ridge of some of the Quachita forest/Mtns.

Some BBQ stops are recommended in Texas. Sure some will chime up.

You also might check some ZIP codes along your route. Search & contact riders in those areas. Email & Ask about places to stop/eat/stay....sites & roads (small gems that would be easy to miss) not to miss.

We did it & it worked quite well. Local riders always know good places. Sign up if u haven't already. It's what mcrdb.com was designed for.
