    Hello

    Some time ago I fell over a motorcycle route planner, which used googlemaps, but had additional functions aimed at motorcyclists.

    Anyone know it? Google is of no help.

    I have been using ridewithgps.com. It is very good so far and the people that run it are open to suggestions.

    I use freeware TYRE "track your route everywhere". http://www.tyre.tk/. It is great software, using Google Earth and Google Maps for route planning and is compatible with TomTom and Garmin GPS units. Try it out.

    DualSportMaps.com is a good one. It was made by an inmate and has an Android app (website is free, app is paid) for offline maps.

    Haven't used it in a while, but it allows you to build your route online, then download. Downside is that you have to create a user ID in order to build routes.

    www.tourstart.org is a free planning tool made especially for bikers! On Tourstart.org you can plan a route and then download it to your GPS. After the trip, you can upload the route to your personal profile along with pictures from the drive, so your friends can follow your trips.

    Actually, once you get past that aspect of it, (the name/brand) it is the most intuitive ride planner I have used

    +1 for out West. Used it religiously while living in CO. I see you have an Ozark version now. Wish I had that when I was growing up in SE MO :D. MO has some great roads but most of them are adequately maintained. There are potholes large enough to swallow your bike.

    When is the East version being released :ear

    I agree. It works well and you can make it to plot your route through mapped dirt roads.
