Whether you’re cooking, exercising or simply relaxing on the couch, apps often rule our digital lives. In this age of smartphones, tablets, virtual reality and a myriad of other electronic gizmos, all of us use apps at some point during our day. Yes, that includes while on our precious motorcycles, too. Two wheels may be a form of escaping the digital world, but it would be a shame to ignore the different ways in which technology can enhance our riding experience. Here we’ve gathered 10 apps we believe would be useful to everyone on two wheels. From finding great riding roads to potentially saving your life, the 10 apps we’ve included here should appeal to the wide array of riders out there. Users on an iOS device are lucky in that almost all the apps listed here work on your device. Android users are also mostly covered. Sorry, but if you’re using a Windows phone or some other OS, you’re largely SOL. Read on to see our 10 featured apps.

    Nice story, Trizzle! Readers can also check out: Park the Bike, which shows moto-parking near you, the AMA Superbike and Flat Track apps, which give you real-time, lap-by-lap results of live races, an app I use called “Speed,” which you can use to measure speed without a nav app, gas buddy, which uses crowd-sourced info to get you the cheapest gas, and my new favorite: I Pee Address, which finds you the nearest public restroom!

    I love Moto Minder…great for keeping track of all of your maintenance performed and timelines…especially if you have multiple motorcycles.

    Allow me to introduce http://www.tourstart.org which is my web page where motorcyclists from more than 50 countries have created 15 000 private and public motorcycle rides. On the web page you can find events, tour, bike clubs and ride planner. All tours can be transferred to at Garmin or TomTom. Further, we have an iPonne app with voice guidede turn-by-turn navigation, so whether you create the ride on the app or web, you have instant access to the rides, and by a single click you start the navigation. Price?? Free to download and use – the only cost is a minor subscription fee to use use the navi.

    Good suggestions! I’ll have to try the Pirelli Diablo Super Biker. Another app that I found useful was the Law Tigers app in case of an accident
