"I snowbird just 1/2 hour away from Oatman , I go there around 2 times a week, I go to Judy's Saloon most times. Anyways I been to Deals Gap and it can't even come close to Route 66 between Oatman and Kingman AZ. IMO the riders that think that the riding on the east side of the USA is great, they should go out west and ride the west coast, The west side of the USA beats the east side hands down, been on both side and most places in between and the west is the best JMO."
I saw Judy's Saloon but didn't go in, as you can tell by the pic's we had lunch at the Oatman Hotel. Food was actually "pretty good".
I've never ridden back east, i.e. Deals Gap and other places. The way everyone talked I felt I was really missing something. Although I was born in the midwest (Kansas) I have been out west for so long I really consider myself a Southwest kind of person. IMO, there is very little that can compare to the high desert roads of Nevada, Utah and Arizona. We have a spring ride planned for Lake Powell at Page, AZ then on to Monument Valley, Ut. It's three days and two nights on the road, about 760mi. This fall we will try to make the "Four Corners Run".
