If you haven't used the free Harley-Davidson Ride Planner online software to route and map your next motorcycle ride, we strongly suggest you start and this is the best place to do so online.
We here at Law Abiding Biker Podcast & Media use the Harley Ride Planner to its fullest potential to map all our motorcycle trips. Within Ride Planner is a community of riders and it allows me to look at other trips that users have created and the ability for me to share my rides with them. I can even incorporate other shared rides right into my ride.
You can also plan and route a ride and then email it to a friend, who can then store it in their Harley Davidson Ride Planner account or even upload it to their GPS unit. So, it is more than just a tool to map and route your next motorcycle ride. Heck, it doesn't even have to be a motorcycle ride, as you can route any road trip!
In this Ride Planner Tutorial Video I teach you everything you need to know. There is much to know within and I have taken much time to figure it all out for you. So, don't give yourself a headache or get frustrated, as I really break it down for you. Once you watch the video, you will certainly feel comfortable using Harley Ride Planner to map out your next motorcycle trip.
I start with the basics, so if you don't consider yourself really “tech savvy” then have no worries. I teach to how to plan a simple motorcycle ride and then how to upload it to your supported external GPS device or into the new integrated Harley Davidson Boom!™ Box Infotainment System. I utilize quality screen recordings of my desktop computer, so it is like you are right with me. You can watch the video, pause it, try it yourself, and then come back to the video! It doesn't matter if you are using MAC or PC, as Harley Ride Planner supports both! There is even a Ride Planner smartphone app that can sync with your free account. However, the app is limited and will not give spoken turn by turn directions.
Further, using Harley Davidson Ride Planner, I will show you even the most advanced features if you are so inclined to use them. Some users will want to go further and will use some of the more advanced features and I certainly don't want to leave anyone out. This video is a complete start to finish production and will satisfy all motorcycle riders.
You will learn how to route a trip, drop blocks, delete blocks, create waypoints, name waypoints, check distance, check ride time, manipulate routes to hit awesome roads, manipulate waypoints, delete waypoints, book a hotel, find other users routed rides, incorporate them into your ride plan, find events, and everything else in between. Harley Ride Planner has a fairly solid user interface and I am here to show you how to use it in an easy to understand format.
Once we create a ride plan using Ride Planner, I then teach you how to easily get it from your desktop or laptop computer onto your supported external GPS device or onto your integrated Harley Davidson Boom Box Infotainment System. Once the planned trip is on your GPS device, you are ready to go. You can store multiple rides on your GPS device, so you are ready to ride for the year.
We go from desktop computer screen recordings and then straight to a recording while sitting on my Harley Davidson motorcycle. I show you how to upload your ride plans directly into the Harley Davidson Boom Box Infotainment System from there. I also go into how to upload your ride plans into a supported external GPS device.
