RoadRUNNER magazine, dedicated for 15 years to serving active motorcycle enthusiasts by being a comprehensive resource for national and international tours, is creating motorcycle travel maps for the nation’s nine largest rallies under its new subsidiary, RoadMAPS, in cooperation with the American Motorcycle Association (AMA).
The large water-resistant and tear-proof maps offer six self-guided routes each, through various states, handpicked by RoadRUNNER’s motojournalists and culled from the magazine’s collection of 400+ national tours. Each ride includes information on local history, nearby points of interest, and lunch stop suggestions.
A collaborative effort, the AMA will be distributing and promoting the maps for free in its AMA Club 1924 tent at each rally. For those who can’t attend, maps will be for sale in the RoadMAPS online shop following each event.
RoadMAPS will be available at the 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), and Ray Price Bike Fest in Raleigh, NC (September 23-25). The Florida edition of RoadMAPS will be available at Thunder Beach in Panama City Beach (April 27-May 1) at locations to be determined.
