In many ways the EatSleepRide app is a lot like some of the other apps on this list. You can track your ride and share it with others, and you can also discover a multitude of possible routes. Want to track speed, lean angle and elevation? Yep, it does that too. But to stop there doesn’t do ESR justice. The app also lets you setup a private ride group, allowing members to chart each other’s progress on a map. EatSleepRide also allows you to see other users in your vicinity also using the app, allowing multiple parties to connect, if so desired. But perhaps the best feature of EatSleepRide is the Crashlight option.

For $6.99 on top of the $2.99 purchase price, Crashlight auto detects a motorcycle crash (using the gyrometers and accelerometers within your phone), and gives the rider three minutes to deactivate the alarm in their phone. Failure to do so sends an emergency notice with your GPS coordinates to pre-selected contacts within the app, alerting them to send help immediately. For 10 bucks, that’s cheap insurance and peace of mind for you and your loved ones. At press time the app is only available for iOS devices, but an Android version is said to be coming soon.

    Nice story, Trizzle!

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