Now that most motorcycle riders have discovered GPS and the fun of route planning, there have been a pletora of websites that offer routes made for motorcycles.

Each time I see a new one, it gets better and nicer, and often more sophisticated. Moto Where is no exception.

Based heavily on Google Maps, the website has a nice and clean interface. There's quite a large database of routes already available, and users can upload their own.

Moto Where Route

Select one of the routes in their database, and the Google map with the route highlighted is displayed. Click on the START TOUR button, and you're taken through the itinerary. At every waypoint, if the user has recorded comments, they'll be displayed on the map. Rest stops, scenic views, smokey alerts, etc are all visible.

Since the base is Google Maps, you can select to view the satellite view, and zoom in to discover what the road really looks like.

The site is very international, with not only routes all over the world, but also the ability to change from kilometers to miles.

Moto Where Elevation Chart

There's even an option to display the elevation chart, showing you how high or low you'll be going. Good to know if you're going to be needing those portable oxygen tanks...

Once you've selected a route you want to try out, downlaod it in .GPX format (it means you may need to convert it to whatever GPS you're using - consult your documentation).

If you've got your own website or blog, you can even export the map. Nice touch.

The site has a forum, where you can discuss the routes.

Registration to upload routes is free, downloading is down without registration.
