Join us for a ride that has been a long standing tradition of our club. Our annual Route 66 Tour will start in Scottsdale then lend you an opportunity to live “Take It Easy” by the Eagles and “Stand on the corner of Winslow, Arizona”. We will then head west on as much of the Mother Road as possible and end the night in historic Williams. The next morning, we will roll through Ash Fork and head into Seligman for breakfast, the town that inspired the original Disney movie, “Cars”. After breakfast we will continue on Route 66 and make stops in Hackberry, Kingman and historic Oatman where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent their wedding night. We will then head for Laughlin, NV and the Colorado Belle for a stop for the night. On Sunday morning, we’ll get up early and head to a more modern Route 66 attraction, Topock66 for breakfast. From here, you’re on your own to head back home via the route of your choosing.
The difficulty level of this ride is EASY. This ride will have a relaxed pace with frequent rest stops and roads not providing much of a challenge. Be prepared for possibly cold, almost freezing temperatures early in the day. This will be a great ride for beginner/intermediate riders as well as cruisers and people riding two-up. This is a great first overnight trip for the novice touring rider! Roughly 491 miles total from GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale to Topock66.
