Route 66 Reborn
I was blown away by the scenery on this trip, to consider that we travel most of the continent is pretty impressive and the trip really brings up feelings of old American songs, they play over and over in your head as you ride through old shanty towns that time has forgotten. Highlights were the Grand Canyon, the Mojave desert and the Petrified Forest. The feeling of completing this trip is also something very special, you feel as though you are a part of a small community of riders who have taken the world’s most famous road. To Ben and Wayne, thank you, this was the greatest motorcycle trip I’ve ever taken!”
Route 66 Reborn
The route 66 motorcycle journey was amazing! Planet Chopper are a top notch outfit! From the moment we had our welcome dinner in Woodlawn to the final day in Santa Monica we were made to feel a part of their family and were completely free to do our thing. It was a great blend of freedom and expert planning. The trip was completed by my wife and I and we were happy we made the choice to take the guided trip as there was plenty of stuff we would have missed along the way plus the support vehicle gave us peace of mind and was a great place to leave our luggage and cameras. If you’re thinking about doing this trip just bloody well do it!
Route 66 Reborn
“Hello everyone, we are writing from Germany and want to talk about the journey we had with Planet Chopper for our honeymoon in September 2019 with Wayne and Ben as guides. First of all we would like to say the service and care was exceptional. The bikes were great too, ours was a Electra Glide, very comfy and lots of fun to ride. Wayne and Ben were very helpful with tips about riding and our daily briefing always had lots of information about the areas we were riding in. From start to finish this trip was amazing, 8 states, lots of scenery and so much history, our breath was taken away many times!”
