Metzeler Moto has officially released MetzelerMaps.com to the North America market. The new website allows users to search, share and upload the best touring routes for motorcyclists, create a profile, save trips, maps, videos and photos and share adventures with other users who will be able to submit their own comments, reviews and suggestions.
MetzelerMaps.com offers motorcycle enthusiasts the opportunity to search for new trips by location, type of trip, distance, type of bike or also through the use of key words. Searches may be as specific as needed; for example, one can search for long excursion trips in the mountains, just a day-trip, or even for folks that ride the same type of bike, or share similar interests. After a user has decided on a particular trip, it is as easy to simply upload it onto one’s smartphone or GPS system and hit the road.
A trip can even be uploaded after being ridden, and then recorded straight from one’s mobile phone or simply by drawing the route on the map after returning home. MetzelerMaps.com can help riders plan a trip and share with friends, who will be able to see it and download it on their GPS unit or mobile phones and share their own experiences as well.
“MetzelerMaps was born after several months of development and ‘beta testing’ carried out by European bloggers which provided us with important feedback,” said Chris Wall, Metzeler Moto North America’s Director of Marketing. “We truly believe in technology and innovation, but we are also bike fanatics and are proud to be releasing this tool as a gift for all bikers and their communities.”
