Road Trip on the Harley..Colorado to to Tucson

It's getting close for our 10th road trip on the Harley! This time from Colorado to Laughlin, Nevada for the River Rally and then on to Tucson. We leave on the 23rd of this month and have till the 5th of May. We will go as a group to Laughlin, we have made this trip many times, then we will go alone on to Tucson with a short one nite in Lake Havasu to visit sister. Our plan is to head out of Lake Havasu with a general southern route, possible on hiway 95 to Yuma and then start to find scenic byways along the way to Tucson, We are most interested in smaller towns, historic area's and scenery. We will want to go no reservation's for rooms and likely stay in mid-range 100-125$ per nite hotels. Prefer Choice Hotel 's We hope to stay in towns along the way with a hope of nite-life and foodie type places (Mom & Pop) . The goal in Tuccon is to go to the Ted DeGrazia Gallery. We will likely try and position ourselve's to the I-25 in New Mexico on the way back and spend some time in the Santa Fe area. Expert's out there any idea's of not to miss places?

You might again reference your Jan. Thread on this tour ... If you prefer open road touring...the 95 on the West, side of the river from needles,is preferable ... As Havasu Area stop & go gets tiresome. Parker then, would make a good lunch stop. As the Arizona & Tucson portion of the tour has been commented on ... I suggest getting back on the 2 lane at Lordsburg NM. up to Silver City, The 152 then, into the Rio Grand Vy. Stopping at for the night at TorC. carracar

Have you ever been on the Oatman detour from Laughlin to LHC? from Laughlin drive to the Avi hotel and cross veterans memorial bridge to az95. Turn right till you see a sign for Boundery Cone rd to Oatman. From Oatman you can drive to Topock on R66 and to LHC from there. Mind your speed in Parker. The local sheriff loves to ticket visitors.....There are some abandoned R66 stretches with shields still painted on the road but hard to find. Also check out Topock Maze near Needles and Blythe Intaglios if you decide to take us95 to Blythe (via Parker and Vidal Junction).
