Hogs on 66 mixes food, fun, and the freedom of the road in colorful photographs, stories, and information about Hog-friendly hangouts, where to buy your Harley gear, road tips, profiles from the road, biker wedding spots, and several hundred favorite recipes from towns along the Route. You’ll learn all about butt darts in Vega, Texas and other behind-the-scenes tales from Harley tours down 66. You’ll meet Harley celebrities who’ve traveled the road, such as Franklin Graham and Reba McIntyre.
Readers will appreciate this compendium of favorite sites, stories, personalities, restaurants, and recipes from the 8-state strip of pavement that connected Chicago with Los Angeles before the Interstate era. And surprisingly, Route 66 still welcomes riders today. Try out the recipes or hit the open road with book in hand—either way, you’ll find Hogs on 66 delightful and an essential piece of equipment for the road warrior in you.
