I have the SoCal map and its just stuffed with info. Most of which I already knew but still cool anways. But, because there is so much stuff, its very hard to read and impossible to use in your map case if your riding. You basically have to lay it out on a scanner/printer and reprint the sections you want and magnify the route. Its unreadable with riding with my reasonably good 42yr old eye sight..
But, other than that. Its cool.

guess you could also see it that your lucky to live a place with THAT many great roads. it's really a must do area for any street rider. nor cal will have just as many great roads and probably even more.

i do agree there is ALOT of detail we needed to pack in there, more than any other map to date. it took alot longer to produce this map. we did the best we could breaking the state up into 2 pieces. we felt 2 was ideal for what we planned to achieve.

don't forget the best of the best roads (G1) have additional larger blow-up detail boxes so we have maxed out details. glad you enjoy what we've done and i hope you find some new roads that need exploring.

thanks, bill

Mini-Review

I'm way late with this, but Potius Sero Quam Nunquam (or something)

I purchased a Utah map from these folks - there was some shipping oddities (not their doing) and they went over a above to make sure I got my map in time for my trip --

My wife and I ran Bonneville at Bub's, and then dropped down to the Moab area for the better part of a week.

Suffice it to say, local knowledge is always best, and the map seemed chock full of local knowledge -- given our short time in the area, we could do recon and then enjoy the fruits of our labor -- Bulter-boys helped turn what woulda been a good time into an EPIC time for us . . . . .thanks, gents!

Now that's a deal!

I jumped on-line and ordered already. Now I can take all those lousy paper highway maps out of the tank bag and put them back in the car. Paper maps are good enough for cage driving, but not on the moto.

We now have a limited number of flat unfolded individual state maps that make ideal wall maps.

They can be laminated or hung as is. They are unique in that they come off the printers but are pulled prior to folding.

Please order the state map(s) normally and put "flat map" in your checkout comments. The free ship code will still work but please don't use it for these. We need to charge shipping because they ship in larger round tubes but we'll keep it to $3 for a tube of one or several. Please order separate from folded maps, so we can keep these orders straight and you get your wall maps. Thanks!

Note: the 5 state planner map is not available (but stay tuned for a very special framed version of that) so please order indiv. state(s) & not the packages.
