Episode 237 - Interview with Bryan of the Historic Route 20 Association 

Hello Boys and Girls

You have heard me here on the podcast talk about highway and various roadways that we can all ride our motorcycles on. While roads like California’s Pacific Coast Highway and Route 66 are iconic and many tour companies offer tours on these roads, what they lack is more. More of it to keep you engaged. More to see and more to do. Though those roads and others like them are great and perhaps historic, they lack that coast to coast adventure you might be looking for. From time to time you’ve also heard me mention the longest highway in America. Route 20, stretching from Boston, Massachusetts to Newport Oregon. My guest today is Bryan Farr of the Historic Route 20 Association and he's here to tell us all about this little known, but historic route across America.
