Has any body every taken this route on a motorcycle? If so, what kind of bike?
The reason why I am asking is that I work with a guy that is about to do it. He bought a new Harley in Houma, la and went offshore. When he gets in he will be picking the bike up and heading straight to Amarillo to ride to Santa Monica. Once he get there then he will be riding back down I-10 to hopefully make it to the Lone Star Rally. I was thinking about planning a trip like this in the future. Let me know what you think?

Make sure you take 180 N/NW of Flagstaff (like if you're headed back to the Grand Canyon). I haven't taken it on a motorcycle but I drove through there once, very nice and scenic with some decent curves.

I actually did this between Amarillo and Albuquerque just a a few days ago. Almost all of it is paved. It flows 40 for the most part. In most cases you can simply take the business route at each small town.
I bought a book named EZ66 that has great info to follow.
There are also Route 66 GPS MAPS that can be downloaded to guide you to each destination.
My favorite stop was this cool little diner at the half way point between Chicago and Los Angeles.
