You'll learn all about butt darts in Vega, Texas and other behind-the-scenes tales from Harley tours down the Route. You'll meet Harley celebrities who've traveled the road, such as Franklin Graham and Reba McIntyre.Some eat to ride, but those who ride to eat will especially appreciate this compendium of favorite sights, stories, personalities, restaurants and recipes from the 8-state strip of pavement that connected Chicago with Los Angeles before the Interstate era and still welcomes riders today.Stay home and try out the recipes or hit the open road with book in hand. Either way, you'll find Hogs on 66 a delightful and essential equipment for the road warrior in you.
