Butler Maps DIY Tour Guides - GPX, Detailed Toursheet & Google Earth kml
Butler Maps has tapped into our vast knowledge of the best motorcycle roads to produce DIY tour guides. Visiting a new state and want to make sure you ride the best possible routes? Touring in your own state and want the best way out and back?

We are starting with Colorado paved roads and will expand into Colorado ADV routes as time goes on. After that additional states. The paved routes are 300 miles or less per day and you travel the best roads from city to city. We start all Front Range(Denver) rides from Golden, but our unique system is designed to work with other start points in the state.

How this works is you purchase each day of riding (a leg) for $10 ea and we include a fully detailed turn by turn tour sheet with mileages to the next turn. Gas and lunch stops are detailed, with a restaurant recommendation at each town along the way. A destination hotel recommendation is included plus ideas on where to eat dinner. Finally we include day rides and other site seeing ideas if you wish to lay over an extra day.

Different return routes are sometimes offered if you are riding out and back for quick 2-3 tours or multi-day loop recommendations for seeing a big chunk of the state. Our primary routing goal is that each days ride include at least 1 G1 section of road. These are THE best sections of paved roads in the state. Another goal is to avoid interstates if at all possible. We'll use excellent frontage roads and other detour techniques. Sometime the interstate cannot be avoided but the sections will be short.

We will move over to an online order system, but for now PM me with the legs you wish to purchase and i'll send you a Paypal request. Upon payment i'll email you the files. Each daily leg has a .gpx, toursheet .pdf and a google earth .kml file of the ride. Load your GPS with the .gpx, print the .pdf for your tankbag and visualize it with the .kml.

Yes you could piece all these together yourself, but we take all the time and guess work out of it and dial you into the best roads for only $10 per day! These are designed to work with out state maps which can be purchased here: plus using our online tour guides here:

Live the dream and buy the guides!

This could be you on these roads...

Any updates on the process of creating dual sport ADV rides? I'm in the planning stages for a trip out there in May. Thanks!
