route planning

  1. Any Croatian or Slovenian members on this forum? Or anyone familiar with these areas?

    I'm planning a trip to Croatia and Slovenia late this summer. Croatia and Slovenia are however bits of blank charts for me, so any advice would be much appreciated. Route planning so far: Day 1: Tuesday. Gothenburg, Sweden -> Hamburg, Germany. Day 2...
  2. France. Route planning.

    I'm planning a trip to France next year. It would be helpful if someone familiar with the area could tell me if I have chosen the wrong routes, or am I missing something that I "just must visit". It looks as if just about all roads are great with lots of scenic views and twisty curves, but I bet...

  4. TLD 2011 Route

    The Longest Day
    Well, since the ride is now decided - next years ride will be The 5 Peaks - here's my suggestion for route planning: As it was Jason's suggestion, and he's Welsh, and he lives in Wales, he does the Welsh Route. As Boris is Scotish and lives in Scotch Drinking Land, and rescues lost riders as...
  5. Route planning software

    I don't know about others, but although mapsource is quite nifty, I think you still can't beat google maps for planning a route - the satellite view is brilliant. But then of course you don't get a "proper" route, and you can't just put it on you sat nav. I've just found a bit of free software...
  6. Honda Zumo v Garmin v TomTom

    Mechanical Advice
    Honda Zumo v Garmin v TomTom At last something I can contribute to! sorry if this is covered in the forum already but I couldn’t find it. I recently got a ‘new’ Honda Zumo ‘free’ with my new Varadero – A dealer sweetener (and dealers do need sweetening) I used to have TomTom on a smartphone...
  7. Maps or Satnav or both?

    Reading a few threads some of you guys seem a bit anti satnav, prefer maps. I use maps for the route planning and overview but this year i've done the satnav thing and found it really useful. Just bunged my TomTom in a plastic bag and plugged into socket. Setting an itinerary for the days...
  8. Mp Book?

    Map Books? I am looking for an A4 or smaller European Road Atlas* and wondered if anyone has a recommendation? A ring binder would be ideal I reckon. I love me Zumo, but route planning is so much more fun with proper paper maps! :) Google earth? Pah!! * Covering at least, France, Germany and...
  9. THE CHEAP WAY DOWN (a bit) PART 1

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The Cheap way down Part 1 I had taken the dog out for a walk on boxing day and thought how great it would be to go for a ride with the roads being empty but I couldn’t even do that since I had sold my Africa Twin a month ago thinking that I wouldn’t be doing much riding over the winter and it...
