Rand McNally is publishing a new edition of the Harley-Davidson Ride Atlas of North America to commemorate the motorcycle company’s 105th anniversary.

As with the previous two editions, the ride atlas provides colored maps, mileage charts and tips for experiencing the open road. The 336-page anniversary edition adds 25 new featured rides.

“Motorcyclists love this book because everything in it was created with them in mind,” says Laurie D. Borman, editorial director for Rand McNally. “It has road trips with all the details that riders need – like gas availability, Harley-Davidson dealer locations, helmet laws and ride times. It’s a collector’s item that riders will come back to year after year.”

As well, the anniversary edition includes a poster-sized wall map displaying 105 routes to Harley-Davidson’s home in Milwaukee, Wisc., and a timeline of the company’s history.

“The 105th Anniversary is going to be a great event,” saysJoanne Bischmann, vice president of licensing and special events for Harley-Davidson. “This atlas will assist riders who are making the trip to Milwaukee to celebrate with us, or provide them with a useful tool for road trips throughout the year.”

The Harley-Davidson Ride Atlas of North America Anniversary Edition is available at a suggested retail price of US$34.95.
