Created by MAD Maps®, this iPhone application ($4.99) is officially Harley-Davidson® licensed and offers riders 975 of the best scenic rides for motorcyclists in the United States. These maps make trips more memorable by taking riders off the interstates and onto two-lane ribbons of pavement. Examples of downloadable ride maps include: Canyon Tour – Winding through the canyons of South Dakota’s Black Hills, this tour is ideal for anyone traveling to Sturgis. To Big Sur, With Love — Explore the best the California Coast has to offer and stop for lunch and an awe-inspiring view at Nepenthe.
Because it’s built with Harley® riders in mind, the app lets customers quickly and easily find the nearest Harley-Davidson® dealership in case they want to stop while on the road. In addition, it has a Best Western® hotels locator so riders can take advantage of the chain’s discounted Harley-Davidson® rate and Rider-Friendly® hotel program, which offers special amenities for motorcycle riders.
MAD Maps® develops its maps with the help of local riders who know the back roads like the back of their hand. This enables the maps to highlight the best scenic roads and the cool stops along the way – from natural wonders to rock ‘n’ roll roadhouses. “Our scouts are our product,” said MAD Maps® Founder Jennifer Lefferts. “Instead of relying on satellites in the sky, our development depends on real people on the ground.” Download at MAD Maps.
