Mapping bikers: OSM provides tagging to differentiate between the many scooter shops and shops that deal with offroad-, dualsport- and sportbikes, see motorcycle:type for info. These tags could be used to find shops that deals with a particular type of bike, like this for example: Offroad and Dualsport Shops, Sportbike Shops. There is also tagging for motorcycle friendly accommodation, see motorcycle_friendly for info. These tags could be used to find bikers accommodation, like this for example: Motorcycle Friendly Accommodation. Accommodations have their names suffixed with * for motorcycle customary and ** for motorcycle friendly on this GPS map. This way they can be identified on a GPS, not an ideal system for sure, but better than nothing. The already established brand tag is also very useful for finding shops: KTM, Husqvarna, Harley Davidson, Honda Big Wing, Suzuki Big Bike, Kawasaki Big Bike, Yamaha Square, Garmin, Shoei.

Download map suited for older GPS units. The roads are styled to resemble Basecamp style.

If your GPS has an Apps icon on the start screen it is a newer unit. Both versions work on all units, the difference is only cosmetic.
Save the map on your unit's memory card in a folder named garmin, this garmin folder must be in the root folder. If this folder does not exist you create it.
Older units can have two additional maps in your Garmin's \garmin folder in the internal memory. If you save two maps in the internal memory you save one as gmapprom.img and another as gmapsupp.img.
Newer units can have multiple maps saved on the memory card named as you like as long as the names are suffixed .img.
