Pretty cool and way to go Victory.

I use my garmin but this is still kinda cool.

Available for Apple (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/victory-rides/id424868061?mt=8) and Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.weathernation.mobile.victoryrides)

reated by the devoted motorcycle enthusiasts at Victory Motorcycles, Victory Rides is a must-have app for the true American biker. With this app, everything you need for adventures on the open road is only the touch of your finger away.

Included features:
- display your current location
- weather conditions, forecasts and advisories for any location
- find and contact Victory dealers
- local services search with integrated direct dialing, including gas stations, restaurants, and lodging
- save waypoints along your route
- track and save multiple rides
- automatic map caching so maps can still be viewed while on the trail and outside of data coverage areas
- supports route tracking in the background
- share saved routes to Twitter or Facebook
- export route data in GPX or CSV format

Users of Victory Rides can track their route in the background and while the device is locked, providing the ability to resume the app at any time. The quality of GPS signal can vary depending on environmental conditions and signal strength. Continued use of background GPS tracking will dramatically decrease battery life.

Grab the all-in-one Victory Rides app and make your next biking adventure your greatest!

Hey I'm all about using a GPS... I have found more cool places and roads to ride with my GPS then ever with normal maps. I love my garmin. If that makes me less "american biker" then I'm ok with that.

I get labled a Ludite when ever a friend sees me stashing my Rand MacNally atlas in the saddle bag. I have nothing against GPSs, they're niffty and I'll use them in a car. But when I pull the bike out and hit the road, I get an euphoric rush unplugging and just running. Plus an atlas doesn't have a battery to replace.
