RoadMAPS from RoadRUNNER


RoadRUNNER Motorcycle Touring and Travel magazine has launched a new venture they are calling RoadMAPS. They will use their “extensive knowledge of the best and most scenic routes to create large, fold-out, weather-resistant maps for your enjoyment.”

RoadRUNNER has been including tear out maps in their magazine for years and later added GPS maps for download. Now they are taking that knowledge and creating maps with “multiple ready-to-ride routes, interesting points of attraction, and recommended restaurant stops.”

Currently their site,, has touring maps for Florida with plans to add New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Virginia soon.

RoadMAPS will be available at the AMA Club 1924 tent at:

-Daytona Bike Week (March 4-13)
-Rolling Thunder in DC (May 27-30)
-Americade in Lake George, NY (June 7-11)
-Laconia, NH (June 11-19)
-Thunder in the Valley in Johnstown, PA (June 23-26)
-AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days in Lexington, OH (July 8-10)
-The Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD (August 8-14)
-Ray Price Bike Fest in Raleigh, NC (September 23-25)

For more information visit their website or their FaceBook page or read the announcement at RoadRUNNER’s website.

Fastest Pop Culture Bikes

Bikes have always had a special kind of appeal to both people–even those who don’t ride. When getting a feature in a hit movie and ridden by a celebrity, it’s a combination that makes them a hit and integrated into pop culture.

Remember the bike in E.T.? Of course you do! Even if you don’t remember it being part of the storyline, the iconic scene of the bike flying with the moon backdrop is tough to forget. Harley fans definitely would have picked out the FLSTF “Fat Boy” when it had a feature in Terminator 2.

The folks at created a graphic of famous bikes, both real and fictional, in pop culture and ranked them by speed. Check out all of the bikes and rankings below:
