I am new at this POI stuff, but am willing to give it a shot. I am an avid off road motorcyle and ATV rider. Is anyone else interested in collecting locations of LEGAL riding areas where we can enjoy our sport?
I am going to start compiling a list of places I ride in North Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. If anyone else would like to contribute, please join in.
I uploaded a POI file a few minutes ago with some riding areas in Texas/Oklahoma/Arkansas.
Great idea! I just got a Polaris Ranger RZR. I've been surfing the web looking for places to ride. Most will require some work to gain coordinates of the trailhead locations, probably won't get them exactly but should get close. I'm going to start with the S.E. states. Here is a great link which provides links to riding areas by state, from there we will have to determine coordinates.
Do a Google search for Alpine Loop in Colorado. There are plenty of great off-road trails for bikes, ATVs, and Jeeps and other 4WD vehicles. Probably some of the best in the country. I don't have coords readily available, but I may be able to get some coords for some of the trailheads from a recent excursion trip log in the area, though.
But, if you have a mapping program you should be able to generate your own.
I just created some waypoints in Mapsource for off-road trailheads in the San Juan Mountains in SW Colorado. These are only a few of the more popular ones in this area. Maybe you can add them to your existing file.
You can PM me and let me know what format you prefer and I can email the file to you if you give me your email address.
Here is a great site that may have lat and long coordinates: http://www.traildamage.com
They are listed under the Outdoor POI files.
I haven't seen you around here in AGES!!!!!!!!!!!
Glad to see you!!!!!!
Been a busy year. Took a road trip out west to 4 corners area and then came back and picked up my new ATV. Been riding it more than the motorcycle. Now the new is worn off so I'll be riding both. Since picking up the Zumo I'm starting to Geocache too. Learning how to create poi for Geocaches along my routes too. Oh, and lets not forget the dentist, eye dr and endocrinologist. Lots of appts. Improvements all around. Haven't been over to ZumoForums much either.

Would really appreciate the Garmin data you mention above as I'll be heading out to Colorado for some 4WD'g in the San Jaun area.

This looks really interesting. Any chance you would like to extend this to dual sport MC roads and trails?? Or perhaps that would be best in its own collection?
Very interested, been riding mostly in Colorado.
However I an brand new to this POI thing and not sure how to even find the ones posted yet.
