All The other maps in the Backcountry series have a route laid out from the northern border of the state to the southern border & I dont see why this NM version would be any different. Im bettn it takes in the area around Silver City too.

Like Rod said this is our BDR map for NM and thus a single dirt route across the state. It starts in Dell City, TX and ends in Antonito, CO.

If you are looking for a collection of roads (paved & dirt) then check out our NM G1 state map.

Wait wait wait..... So this is a map highlighting roads of particular interest to MC riders.

I'm interested in a map that shows dirt roads in Texas, as well as one for Arkansas.

Is that kinda what were talking about here?

The BDR maps are a specific route.

The other maps are more general but still geared towards people looking for good roads.

No idea :shrug: Bill?

I haven't seen any maps yet that are totally accurate about which roads are paved and which are not. My Garmin GPS maps are often close, but even they can be wrong fairly often.

Are dirt county roads annotated on the Texas hill country map?
Yes they are. Doesn't show every dirt road of course but there is a bunch. Below is a snippet for your area of interest. Dirt is the dashed lines, red dashed is featured roads and black dashed is other dirt or gravel. Featured meaning scenery and twisty not technical rating of dirt.

Arkansas is in their Ozarks map and has dirt roads identified also.

There are no dirt roads shown on our Ozarks maps unfortunately.
It's the only one to not have dirt roads.

When I went to add those there was not enough room on the map because of the scale.
The dirt roads that would connect thru changed names often and thus the writing on the map would to be too small and a mess.

On THC map the area is much small yet the same size cut map and thus much more room to work with.

I've been admiring these maps for a while. I just ordered the Texas/Ozarks combo. I'm heading to NW Arkansas for my vacation in May.

For anyone considering mapping solutions for your adventure rides, these maps are TOP-NOTCH and I highly recommend them. I've gotten excellent use out of their Hill Country map thus far and plan to tour Arkansas this fall. These maps are fantastic and I also suggest checking out their Rever app which utilizes digital versions of the maps along with tracking, etc. Both are excellent resources.

Can you buy these in Austin at local shops?? I've seen the Texas Hill Country map, but I'd like a North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas.

Reviving this thread in hopes that Butler folks will respond....

QUOTE: eakins
[We have a few more US state G1 maps to finish - N. Mid-Atlantic and and Upper Mid-West. At that point we are probably built out for the US, except for some specialty maps we've talked about.]

Bill.... Ya'lls Tx Hill Country map has been well recieved by many many folks & is kinda unique in its detail scale compared to other G1 maps..but it doesn't cover all that much of Texas' vast riding area.Please don't forget about the wonderful riding in the forests of eastern Texas. There are a vast number of paved county roads thru the trees that not too many are familiar with. Also many fun & scenic Farm to Market rds (FM). Northeast Tx has the greatest amount of pavement variety..while southeast has more unpaved county roads but still really fun FMs

If ya'll can produce 2 California maps....then why not at least 2 for Texas (really need 3 with N THC)
& I understand that west Tx doesn't really need much map coverage.
I've had a lot of folks ask me when Butler was going to offer another Tx map like eastern forests or northern hill country.
Please reevaluate the future mapping plans so us Texans don't feel slighted compared to other regions or states...
