    Found this on another forum, it's a routing web-site that allows you to find "fastest"* through to "extra curvy" routes.

    www.kurviger.de


    * As a test I let Kurvinger find the "fastest" route from Bundoran to Galway. The result was a bit wide of the mark and not the route that I would have used, but I think it leans (sorry) towards the curvy side of things anyway. No sniggering at the back.

    Just did my own test - home to Ullapool!

    Seems I've been following the twisty all along :D

    Do like the look of the mapping though - very easy on the eye.

    Interesting! I entered a destination that has an 'obvious' twisty route, and it found a completely different one. It looks like it could be useful for those of us who have become jaded riding the same old roads.

    I’ve been using Kurviger on my desktop for all my route planning for a couple of years now. Brilliant mapping, the only issues I’ve had are when routing through built up areas, but that’s not it’s remit so it can be forgiven!

    For those of you with Apple iPhones or iPads, check out a navigation app called Scenic. Designed specifically for M/C’s it uses Kurviger as it’s primary map database. It’s so easy to use, creating and saving routes is simple, etc. I use it exclusively now in preference to Sygic or TomTom even if I’m in the car. It’s only available for iOS, no Android version is available yet, but you can find out more about it here - MotoMappers

    I’d just logged on specifically to comment about Scenic using Kurvinger for routing

    I’ve just switched to using it from TomTom atgthe recomendation of a friend

    Pretty impressed so far

    Very impressed with scenic, straight forward to use ( even i can do it ) and gives you plenty of options
    of how you want to ride, highway, curvy etc. Short route is umm interesting shall we say.

    In the excellent Kurviger, under Advanced Options, is a box titled 'avoid unpaved roads'. If you're on a heavy, heavily laden adventure bike, consider ticking that box. Don't ask me how I know this....

    Been using this for a while now. I like the "round trip" module. Used it a lot for a day out on a Sunday. Took me to roads that I rarely use, which was quite interesting :cool::D
    You can alter the mileage to suit from your home base, pretty much to infinity and beyond :D
    The only faff I found was converting to Basecamp then to GPX but a after a wee while, got it all sorted. :thumbsupanim:

    Just had a play with it taking point I had put into MemoryMap as gpx ran it through the options to find what matched the existing track to find which is a vara, Transalp or something small track. Could export as gpx straight back into MM. My routes generally match I or / but S if looking for smallest steepest lanes.
    A route between some points on next year's possible VMCCSC challenge, the yellow crosses.

    I can waste hours playing with this
    Thanks
