My partner and I are planning our next big trip and would lik to try Route 66. We will have 3 weeks to spare from July 23rd 2013. He would like to do it on a Harley, so would I, but I'm a little more concerned about issues. He has very little biking experience but he could easily get a numbers of lessons on a Harley before we go and some driving experience.as I have sourced where this can be done. I would be riding on the back of the bike!! However can anyone offer advice about whether he would be able to gain enough experience over the next 3 months and will the heat be too much to bear in places such as Death Valley at that time of year? We are a little tied with when we can go! Would early morning starts help in certain areas to avoid the heat or are there enough stops on route to get shade?
Would love any advice we can get?
