Until recently, I wasn't aware, with an Android mobile, Google timeline plots where you go each day, doesn't matter if you drive walk or ride a bike. The data is only visible to the person who's google's account it is. I have extracted the data and used it to create the maps below.

You can zoom in on the maps, drag the person in the bottom right to anywhere on the map and use Google street view to see what's there, also click on most of the hotels or attractions and view them, but need to be zoomed in to see.

Some places I think the positioning is not 100% but within say 50 - 100 meters.

Day 1 Taxi ride to pick up the Harley's at Eagle rider in Joliet road just outside Chicago, only 18 miles away from hotel, but the taxi driver didn't have a clue where he was going, we had to get a sat nav out.

Day 2 Ride up to Milwaukee to the Harley museum and then back to stay in Joliet town.

Day 3 Joliet to Lincoln, then back to find a hotel in Atlanta for the night.

Day 11 McLean to Tucumcari

Day 12 Tucumcari to Sky City Casino in Acoma

Day 13 Acoma to Lexington Inn at Holbrook, Arizona

Day 14 Holbrook to Flagstaff, about 100 miles
