I rode through Oklahoma but decided to stay off Rt 40. I rode Route 60 through Ponca City then Rtoute 412 towards Santa Fe. I was good road, but hot and windy. Take a cooling vest !!!!

When I got to Utah, I rode the Moki Dugway too. Here is a video from near the top -> https://vimeo.com/355159706

I did it by myself. Did not see a soul up there, but continued on into Bears Ears and the Natural Bridge Monument. It's a great ride :)

Enjoy the eastern part of the state, because when you get west of I35 it's not so scenic. I live in the Tulsa area and would be happy to lead you down some good roads. Most of the "state" highways are good. Let me know where you will be entering Okla. and I'll point out a few routes you might be interested in riding, and points of interest going east to west. And places to EAT.

I understand, let me know when you'll be in Oklahoma and what highway you will be on.

When you come through in 3 weeks, the temps should be more in the 80s than upper 90s. All the routes already mentioned are all good, and for different reasons. Talimina drive popular in fall for foliage colors. Oklahoma has more miles of Route 66 than any other state so if seeing 66 is important to you, check it out. And lots of small mom & pop restaurants to stop at on the way.

Enjoy the trip!

Highway 412 in the Panhandle of Oklahoma is the loneliest stretch of road in the USA IMHO. From Guymon, OK to Springer, NM there are only 2 towns in between so you better gas up.

There are a few things to see west of I-35, but the roads to them are pretty uneventful.
Wichita mountains in the southwest, black mesa, little sahara st. park

was out there years ago and road quit a bit of 66 . Was big storm that i was chasing and when i went thru little town the intersection had 6 inches of water in !! Still love going thru small towns. Most interstates are what "killed" them .
