App features include the ability to:
Log Rides – track your routes, time and mileage for each ride. Add comments and a photo to every trip and store everything in the app.
Track Rides – connect to Facebook and Twitter and share the trip with family and friends.
Plan Rides – with everything from the rider checklist to local weather and gas prices, GoodRide helps prepare riders before they hit the road.
Keep Maintenance Logs – track every oil change and every flat tire. Set service alerts and keep the bike in top condition.
Call Good Hands Roadside Assistance – call for accident support and bike-friendly service vehicles will be on their way.
