    Google map routes and weather, together!

    For those like me who have struggled to get route specific weather predictions, here's a new addition to one of my favorite weather sites, www.wunderground.com, that annotates the weather directly on a route. The new feature is called roadtrip.

    Here's the link: http://www.wunderground.com/roadtrip/.

    Here's an example: http://tiny.cc/UCikm.

    Have fun and go ride!

    I use Wunderground but never noticed the road trips! WAY COOL.

    I also use Cal Trans Live Cams for up to the minute actual views of major roads.

    Good site. Unfortunately, it seems that it only provides weather for the continental US only.

    Pashnit has been the first motorcycle forum I've ever been a member of. I didn't even rode motorcycles back then...

    Now I'm preparing for a trip during the Holiday season and I've come across this... Thank you so much.

    PS It's good to recognize good old screen names (Demenshea, Crash, etc.) Like good friends of a faraway past (so much has happened in the meantime).

    Safe ride to all of you.
    Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind… the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.
