Google Maps is great for planning, and a programmable GPS for routing. But sometimes having a large, detailed map in the context of the whole huge region you’re in is a great tool. Batteries fail and GPS is a pretty small window. While you might be fine with a Google printout of a map (or several), we like Butler Maps. Their maps are designed for motorcyclists, by motorcyclists and are the best resource for the best roads for any kind of riding and they include some of the best places to stop along the way.
