Backbone of America - HOG® Magazine - Harley-Davidson

Assignment for Harley-Davidson to ride across US HWY 50 Backbone of America.  HWY 50 passes through literally hundreds of time worn small towns, most still remaining untouched by box stores and fast food.  From Kansas, following the Arkansas River along the historic Santa Fe Trail, climbing over the Colorado Plateau, into the Great Basin, across the Loneliest Road in America, into California, the route shares vanishing Americana.  An interactive ebook with photographs, maps, and daily journal is available on the eBooks page.
