Routing server to generate motorcycle friendly routes
Kurviger is a motorcycle route planner based on GraphHopper. Kurviger (German for curvy) favors curvy roads that include elevation and tries to avoid cities. Kurviger is capable of calculating roundtrips using a given distance and heading. Kurviger is available as website and Android app.
The Kurviger App is available as Pro version and Free version. The Free version offers all the features you already love from the website. Plan round-trips, find winding roads, import and export routes, and, as a bonus, there's a guide-me mode, supporting you as you follow the route just created. The Pro version adds a fully functional turn-by-turn navigation on top of that.
Motorcycle Contributions to OSM
Kurviger tries to actively motivate it's users to contribute to OSM. For example a lot of ferries do not contain tags for motorcycles or motor_vehicle, therefore Kurviger does not allow to use these ferries. Several users added the according tags for several ferries.
The community is also contributing with fixing access restrictions to streets. There are streets were motorcycles are not allowed during the weekend. In the course of testing the service, several users found incorrect tagged streets, that were fixed.
