App DescriptionFull turn-by-turn GPS navigation & routing capability now combined with the finest curated collection of 334 motorcycle roads guaranteed by 34,000 mi (54,000 km) of NorCal research riding. Gives you something no other app, GPS device, website, forum, book or map can: comprehensive knowledge of where all the best roads are and what they’re like. And then guides you to/on them. (NO cell service/data plan required for GPS functions!)
"A Godsend! Riders spend hours searching for opinions and secret roads that can all be found at their fingertips in mere seconds here."
Our (T)otal (I)ntegrated (R)oad (E)valuation (S)ystem rates paved roads numerically from a street motorcyclist’s unique perspective. The points total determines a road’s rating out of 100 and its DH or ranking number.
“I’m a highway engineer by education. TIRES is a great way to evaluate roads specifically for characteristics we motorcyclists desire most.”
What about roads that are not quite DHs but worth riding if you’re in the area? DH NorCal guides you to the Twisted Edges (TEs), those great subsidiary side roads you tend to pass up.
Riders spend too much time “riding like a tourist” on major highways, wondering where all the good roads are and just LOOKing at many of the unknown DHs & TEs that slide past their shoulder all day long.
ALL the features of our base DH NorCal app plus full GPS:
Browsable GPS map has DH and TE motorcycle road overlay with unique icon identifiers. Touch any icon to “Show Details”, “Show Local/Regional/State Map(s)” or “Add To Route”. Quickly build a motorcycle route more easily than you ever thought possible.
Not a router? Just choose a nearby DH or TE and “Go To & Nav On” to ride immediately.
Alternately, “Find DHs & TEs by…” proximity, Region, or various search criteria. Then “Show on GPS Map” or choose from the same options above.
“My Routes” can be previewed, edited and reversed. When you’re ready to ride, Nav mode will guide you to and along the route, turn by turn.
Find and “Go To” motorcycle dealers (by all/specific brands or by dealer name) and service POIs (gas, food, accommodation etc).
122 onboard DH NorCal maps, plus overall “big” picture Companion Map (for a discount on a real “big picture” hard copy 39 x 27 inch synthetic CM, email us from app).
Browse interactive DH NorCal “ebook” cover to cover.

"Don't ride like a tourist, ride like a local" is more than our motto. It's what we do for both riders who live in CA (or nearby) as well as those who come from afar.
