Muddy road, old bike. Butler Maps rides all the bad roads so you dont have to. Head right to the goods and avoid the mess. Unless of course your into that!

Man that was quick! Since I don't do the Paypal thing, I asked my son to do it. So, Sunday night he did and the maps were here today!



These look outstanding. I see you have my favorite Montana roads "yellow".

As as added bonus, each map has a motorcycle shop directory. Very cool, thanks.

From a riders point of view, WHY you need a butler map.

Local knowledge without being a local
Because you want to ride the roads, not spend countless hours on the internet learning where to find them
A map shows you A-B, a BM shows you the best motorcycle experiences.
So you NEVER have to ride past a road and wonder
Because not everybody has years to stumble across the hidden gems that are not found in any blog or magazine
Because a map screen never cracked our ran out of batteries
Because your 8.00 gas station map falls apart with in hours of folding it into submission to fit in your tank bag.
Because you 8:00 map desinigrates with in minutes of opening it in a light rain storm
A Butler Map is built to last..
Because if its highlighted on the map its a good ride. PERIOD, we know this because we have ridden every single mile personally. No other company has the first hand knowledge of roads like we do. We have ridden over 150k miles in the western states alone just to gather the info
With the Iphone app, GPS download and paper map, you have the most comprehensive information data base available to motorcyclists anywhere.
Because is not about the destination its about the journey
Because BM is innovative and groundbreaking, bringing the digital world (QR) into the paper world giving users access to more then just roads, but the best places to eat, drink, sleep and gather.
Because our maps are cool. ( sound corny but we are, and we want to stay that way)

Here is some technical info i received on how exactly our maps are layered together.

Allen Cartography (Benchmark Maps http://www.benchmarkmaps.com/ ) is doing the cartography. They do beautiful work! http://www.allancartography.com/ They are doing the maps for National Geographic & Raven Maps http://www.ravenmaps.com/
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

National Elevation Dataset (NED) for the terrain shading.

A combination of National Transportation Atlas Database (NTAD) and Open Street Maps for the highways and roads.

Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) for city names, physical feature names and elevations.

I'm enjoying my Southern California map

I met the Butler crew at a display table at the Long Beach Int'l Motorcycle Show a few months back. I was impressed with the quality of the maps, and the folks are knowledgeable and nice. The material is like plasitized or coated paper. Good stuff.

I brought home the Southern California map and it's pretty cool. It has many of the rides I like (Ortega and Sunrise Highways, Palomar Mountain) and a few I want to try (Palms to Pines, Angeles Crest).

If hard maps are what you enjoy, you'll be happy with the Butler stuff.

Now, when does the Alaska may come out...

Got my hands on a WABDR map. Nice map. Would be more useful if it had GPS coordinates
