Has anyone had any experience with Butler Maps?
I just picked one up 3 days ago for a Utah trip I am planning. I really like the map as whole but I do not have any experience with in the wild yet. For planning, so far it is great!
Thanks, Camit. I think I'll try one for what looks to be great 'off the beaten path' routes. For those who haven't seen these, take a look: http://www.butlermaps.com/
I used one to help me explore the Texas Hill Country. I like that they're up with the times; barcodes all over that shit. That said, despite having a smartphone I never once scanned one of them
My buddy and I've used them on several different rides and found them to be quite nice. They aren't perfect, but I'd definitely recommend them.
Recommended. I used the Colorado on my Colorado ride last year. Very good.
I used my Idaho map a lot last year and it took me to areas I would not have otherwise gone. The one for Colorado, where I live, is pretty right on. These are great maps! I have almost all of them and used every one with good results.
I have the Colorado version, and thumbs up.
A friend and I used them last fall through Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho. Those maps turned a good bike trip into a great trip. Some of those roads were just too damn fun. We wound up planning most of the trip around how many yellow roads we could hit.
Waiting patiently for the Oregon OBCDR map to make it out???
never heard of em.
we'll have a Ozark map out this summer and hopefully finish up work on Nor Cal sometime soon.
we ride COBDR http://cobdr.com/ this summer and AZBDR after that.
check out steve farson's awesome book too. great compliment to finding all the colo goods.
we are too, but that is still awhile off. it's cost Touratech alot of $ to produce a BDR http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/blog/ so all of them will take some time. sorry.
I completely understand the $ and time needed to produce the BDR map! I know the routes and have it on the Gps, what would be nice is the high quality Butler map as the backup to the GPS routes in case the GPS goes tits up!
I have the Washington one and like the quality!
Just trying to light a fire under the boys at TT to get out some more and ride!
Patience is a virtue is was not born with! I have spent most of my life trying to develop it, but I suck at the challenge!
It might keep the route from getting crowded so it is a double sided sword.
Keep up the good work!
Have the so. cal. version. Like it alot. Not perfect, but nothing is... For the cost, I would recommend buying it. You'll find at least a few nice rides you weren't aware of.
I bought the Colorado map for a trip this summer. It is really nice and is helping with planning. I wish they had an atlas of great rides in all 50 states including dual sport routes but I understand why that it takes a lot of time and effort to put together a product like this.
