Buter Motorcycle Maps releases Oregon map

Butler Motorcycle Maps is proud to announce the release of the all-new Oregon map — a collection of 5,385 miles of the very best motorcycle roads in the Northwest highlighted, rated and described for your ride-planning pleasure.

The road-hungry scouts at Butler burned 28,418 miles of roads to bring you the best Oregon map available in motorcycling. They even took on a mountain lion attack to make sure that every obscure back road in the Oregon was scouted.

“Oregon is just an incredible place for motorcyclists,” said Court Butler, head of scouting, sweeping and coffee production for Butler Motorcycle Maps. “We’ve put in some amazingly scenic, sporty and sensational miles into the Oregon map for all to enjoy. From the high desert to the Cascade and Coastal mountain ranges and more, Oregon is a great destination. Taking the Oregon Butler Motorcycle Map with you ensures you’ll always be on the best roads.”

Butler Motorcycle Maps are precisely developed for real motorcycle travel. Printed on highly durable and waterproof paper. Our easy-to-read rating system clearly indicates the most dramatic and scenic stretches of road and are accompanied by detailed inset boxes, written descriptions, elevation profiles and a whole bunch of useful information to help you plan your journey.

Oregon maps are now available online at butlermaps.com and at your local motorcycle dealer.

Torque Wrench Adapter

Torque wrench adapter

Motorcycle tool specialists Motion Pro make this adjustable torque wrench adapter for torquing hard-to-reach nuts and bolts. It works with any 6mm through 19mm metric or 1/4in through 3/4in SAE combination wrench and with 6mm and 8mm Allen wrenches. We used it to torque the barrel nuts on a Norton Commando 850 twin — only accessible with a box-end wrench — and it worked beautifully. No torque adjustment is required as long as the wrench is at 90 degrees to the torque wrench. A must. $45.99. MC


As you might expect, insurance companies like Progressive Insurance doggedly track accident rates and claims through the year. Progressive just sent out the interesting infographic below highlighting the summer season motorcycle accident and claims patterns. “The summer travel season is peak time for passionate motorcycle riders and, after a brutal winter, more riders are hitting the road than ever before. In fact, new motorcycle sales are up more than eight percent through the first quarter, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council,” says Progressive. “And with more bikes come more claims, especially in the summer months.”

No Fume Safety Drain

No fume gas draining

Owners of vintage machinery know that ethanol-enhanced fuel breaks down quickly in storage, leaving behind carburetor damaging deposits. To make winter-time fuel draining easy, Innovative Flow Technology makes a quick-release no fume quick coupler that can be spliced into a fuel line. Draining fuel for storage is a simple matter of uncoupling the fuel line, then coupling an auxiliary drain line to drain fuel into a gas can, eliminating fuel spills. Available in chrome ($59.95) or stainless steel ($119). MC


Can-Am Spyder Cowl and Trunk Bra Set

Hopnel™ expands its popular Can-Am Spyder RT Trunk Bra Set to include 2010-13 models. This attractive, finish-saving accessory is designed to reduce the nicks, chips and bugs that pummel the front cowl and front trunk of the Can-Am RT. This two piece Front Cowl and Trunk Bra Set has a tailored bra for the front trunk and another tailored sewn wrap for the front lower intake cowl. The Front Cowl and Trunk Bra Set greatly reduces the road rash the Can-Am RT takes, and provides a clean blacked-out look to the front cowl without covering the chrome. Both the upper and the lower bras wrap into the front trunk lip and are held securely in place with special adhesive backed hook and stitched loop. Available in black only and made in the USA.
