Any way to use/edit embedded maps?

I've seen a lot of websites embed Google Maps routes, and specifically I want to load this route into Basecamp: http://www.motorcycleroads.com/75/62...-and-Back.html

Most of these websites don't offer a way (as far as I've seen) to save the map though, which seems really pointless to me. Hopefully I'm just overlooking something, but is it possible to salvage the route into a usable file?

Many of these sites are there to get your eyes on to their adds or for you to purchase something that have to sell - in this case their MCR Mobile app for $2.99. Their use of Google Maps is a mashup and these sites typically don't have the coding resources to create features like converting the "member" supplied data back to a GPX format once it is in KML - although it's not that difficult to do and there is free-use code available to do that.

Anyway, you might try a few other sites, some have GPX download capability.
