Any road I am on with a motorcycle is a good road except I39. I came back from riding the Skyline & Blue Ridge Parkways to to the Smokies. Stayed the 1st night just this side of Indy. It was 100 degrees + as I rode north. @HockeyBum is dead on. Boring.

In so far as AZ driving.

US 54 from Wichita to Tucumcari is bad too. It is better the closer you get to I40 / NM but it shaves a couple of hours off taking I35 to I40.

In AZ 89 A ( Back road from Flagstaff to Sedona & thru Cottonwood & Jerome to Prescott) is a blast.

Lots of great roads in AZ. Get down to Bisbee if you can.

89A is a great drive! We go down to Phoenix every year, so one year we did a day trip to Jerome and Sedona. Beautiful part of the country!

My parents are huge Eagles fans. So they want to stand on a corner in Winslow, AZ :lol:

Plan from Colorado Springs is to go I-25 south through Santa Fe, and catch I-40 in Albuquerque, to Winslow and Flagstaff, then I-17 south into Phoenix

Bad things happen when you don’t take that left turn in Albuquerque :mrgreen:

It’s too bad you’re not going through the state on I-70. I’d say stop at BeauJos in Idaho Springs for pizza and thank me later. They do have one in Colorado Springs too but the Idaho Springs one just seems to be another notch better
