Dave Tessier - tester on Tourstart

Most of my riding is exploring rural highways on day tours.

Every year my wife and I will plan a multi day tour where great riding roads are the focus.

I have two daughters (13 and 10) who also like to ride. As a firefighter I'm lucky enough to have a work schedule which allows alot of time where I can just hop on the bike an go.

Henning Bøndergaard

I have had my motorcycle driving license since 1969, but only had a motorcycle since 2013. I bought a Yamaha Dragster 650 in 2013, but both the riding style and the lack of wind protection made me change to a BMW RT 1100 from 1996. This is the right bike for me. 

I am a member of Bøllinghus MC, and in 2014 I bought a second hand Zumo 550, because I wanted to have the option to plan rides on Tourstart and then transfer them to the GPS. 

Henning Bøndergaard - Tourstart Tester

Late 2104 I made some rides for the club, and currently I am planning a motorcycle ride on the small twisted roads for the club members. The rides I make I save on "My Page" and this is routes which I would never had a possibility to plan and ride without the GPS, so it is a pure pleasure for me. I have had some fantastic rides on the motorcycle lately when using Tourstart for the RidePlanning, so I will use this for both my car and motorcycle tours.

Each year I ride 5000 - 7000 km on the motorcycle, and approx 75 000 in my car.
