Sold a few maps too.Met some folks from Roll The Bones rally at the motel later Sat night & we rode all day Sun. Not much rain...all done while eating breakfast. Wound em round all the good stuff & ended up in Comfort.Headed north at 4:45 !! Home at 8:30 with one 15 min stop for a bbq sand & over 200 mi. !! Flowers on Altus-Davis Rd east of Willow City were some of the best yet. One of my favorite "short cuts" to Fburg. I'm gonna try to do some more rallys & offer the Butler Maps. Thanx to Hap Hazard for plantin the idea of coming.
sounds like fun Rod.
thnx

I ordered my CO map and the book too a few months ago and finally found some free time to peruse them properly and post up about it. FANTASTIC is all I can say about these two items. Glad I bought the accompanying book, too, as I wondered if they would cover the exact same material... they do not... which is what I was hoping for. That book just has to be the most detailed riding book of all time.. well done. The map is fantastic. Can't wait to get to CO this July with my brother. Gonna be EPIC.

Bill,
Tony Huegel has proven himself time and time again that he has the knowlege of the backcountry and the knack for knowing just where adventure type riders want to be and should go, out west.
Just thought I'd mention.

Eakins,

Before I put an order in - just wanted to find out if you have a Dual Sport / DirtRoads edition for the state of WA?
Thanks
Frank

Absolutely Frank!
I put that up fast late last night when i got the word, but have time to give credit when credit is due.

Tony Huegel http://www.backcountrybyways.com/ was the key instrumental person in producing the ID plus also helped out with UT. He is an ID guru!

Tim Bernard & company http://www.happy-trail.com/ also helped out greatly with ID. They are ID ADV touring gurus.

Cole Boehler http://motorcyclingmontana.com/ was instrumental with the MT map. We sell now his book too http://www.butlermaps.com/Motorcycle...g-Montana-Book
Awesome book & highly recommended package for anyone traveling to MT.

i'd also like to thank everyone who helped me identify remote gas stations for the maps.

thnx Bill Eakins

Yeah, I have two of the Colorado maps (one always stays on the DR), and the book. So good I just ordered the version 2 of the Idaho, Wyoming and Montana maps for my upcoming trip to Idaho. Great job!

I posted here, and contacted Butler Maps regarding a failed order a couple of weeks ago. Turns out it must have been a USPS error. Once acknowledged, Court and staff at Butler were very accommodating in ensuring my satisfaction. I received my order today, plus a 'sorry 'bout that' extra map today. I'm very impressed! Both with the maps and their service. I'll order more of their products and encourage those of you who travel to take a good look at their maps. Best motorcycle specific maps I've ever seen. Thanks, Court. Ed in Michigan
