1. Put the phone away and just ride!

After all this talk about using apps to better your motorcycling experience, sometimes it’s best to put all that technology away and just ride. Despite all the amazing ways electronics can enhance our experience, motorcycles will always be about man and machine, discovering the open road together. Riders survived for ages without smartphones (or dumb phones for that matter). You can do the same. Apps only get in the way if you let them. There’s a saying that goes, “You can never be lost if you don’t have a destination in mind.” Subscribe to that, then get out there and ride. Technology will still be there when you get back.

    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
