Back to my roots! The Midwest! Illinois! Missouri! Wisconsin! Jewels to discover! Mississixty-Six contains everything!
Everyone who knows knows that it’s not easy doing Rt. 66 nowadays. The road network itself was closed down in the 70s. Bye-bye.
Still, there are small, 66-gems here and there, you know, forgotten villages and communities that stand still in time, but still continue to be all-proud memorials of The Mother Roads greatness.
The state of Illinois is the largest of these Route 66 pillars. Private associations and etc. have over the years invested both money and time to equip, cherish and preserve this great treasure, Route 66. From Chicago to St. Louis! Impressive. Wet dreams for us 66 fanatics. We ride it, in its entirety. First to the state capital Springfield and say hey Abe Lincoln, then on down to St. Louis.
At St. Louis we say farewell to The Mother Road and jump on The Great River Road which winds north along the Mississippi River. Peerless. We stay with my biker-buddies in the river town of Quincy,Il. maybe ride with them to one of their many favorite places hidden along the river? Onward and up to a true biker town called Savanna. A must-visit place for all bikers in The Midwest. Good times at The Iron Horse Social Club that evening!
North to historic Galena, Illinois. Birthplace os Ulysses S. Grant! Culture up the yinyang,.
The next day happens to be July 4th! We’ll celebrate this in the Swedish village of Rockford and party together with my crazy, wonderful relatives there! Hold on to your hat. Rockford to Milwaukee! We stay downtown! A visit to Juneau Ave. and a V.I.P tour of Harley-Davidson’s amazing new museum! Boom!
Next day, a short push south to Chicago. Steak-dinner, blues-safari! Sightseeing! Even shopping along The Miracle Mile for anyone who wants. 🙂
