In April, I am shipping my bike from Florida to Las Vegas with HaulBikes. I am flying out in the beginning of May and will ride, with two other guys, to Death Valley, Kingston, Grand Canyon, Winslow, Albuquerque and then back to Florida via Little Rock. We are doing as much riding on Old Route 66 as we can do.
Since I have never ridden out west I am looking for some tips and cautions from anyone that knows the dangers, delights, etc.
I know what to watch for in Florida and in the PA area like alligators, greasy old possums and deer but I don't know much about out west.
I am riding a 2004 K1200GT. Tires, Battery, fluids and air filter have just been renewed. Any tips are appreciated.
