Planning the Ultimate Harley Road Trip

Planning the Ultimate Harley Road Trip

  • There was always a million sparkles on the water... like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies, one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn't tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It's so beautiful.

    --Forrest Gump (1994)


    Remember when Forrest just felt like running? Back and forth, coast to coast, state after state, observing some of the most breathtaking sights our country has to offer. If Forrest could do it all over again, he would probably spend at least part of that journey on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle.


    When you start to plan a Harley road trip, whether you’re thinking of traveling 500 miles or 5,000 miles round trip, leave your GPS in your car’s glove box. All you need is Butler Motorcycle Maps.

    Butler Motorcycle Maps was created by four motorcyclists who have a passion for the open road. These guys have personally ridden and rated every road on their maps and travel guides, covering almost the entire Western United States.


    Let your Harley road trip take you off the beaten path and introduce you to lost highways, untouched landscapes, rugged mountain country, and unknown roads that naturally wind through spectacular hills and valleys.


    Whether you’re looking for thrills, serenity or a once-in-a-lifetime getaway, these kinds of trips were the inspiration for Butler Motorcycle Maps. And these are the kinds of trips that the Biker Bar was built for.


    Let’s be honest. You’ll have to trailer your Harley for at least part of a trip like this. Maybe a bigger part than you think.


    The beauty of the Biker Bar is that you don’t have to waste time strapping and unstrapping when you load and unload your Harley, retightening straps at every stop, or worrying if the terrain is too rough. That can really kill a special moment.


    Is that what you want to be doing during a Harley road trip?
