www.tourstart.org - getting closer
Thursday, July 16, 2009 @ 18:05
Development of a web page takes a bit longer than expected. Much longer.
And this extra time we have spend now - and we are pretty satisfied with the result. Now it is time to get concerned if the members like our web site... Now we have reached the point where the development team are fine-tuning the last bits and pieces, so now we can see light at the end of the tunnel. We have been together with the team for the a period, where many aspects have been discussed, fine-tuning and preparation made to get a stable web site.
As soon we are ready, we need some Beta testers. Even it is a bit hype to have some Beta testers, it is pretty useful as well. We need some motorcyclists who are interested in using the web site and the services, to find any issues we may have overlooked. After a certain period with feed-back from the beta users we are ready to go full public. We search for 50 beta users in each country, so as many different user patters can be tested as possible. So when we are ready, the web site is open for signing up for the beta test. Please consider to support us in the beta test. Tourstart web site focus on the pleasure of driving the motorcycle and building up some international friendship. For doing this we have made some functions, such as:
We have focused on a high degree of GPS integration and usage of maps, to enhance the visual approach of what to ride for and where to ride to. Now there is an increasing number of motor cycle GPS sold, and then it was only natural for us to offer the GPS integration to our members. Also we have seen that there are many re-born motorcyclists who finally got the wife (or husband) convinced to invest in a bike. The re-born bikers often lacks the social net work, and also they might need a few hints for some good adventures. But, on the other hand we all might need some inspiration for some good motorcycle tours and activities, so this we at Tourstart hope you all can find.
Index page of www.tourstart.org
Until we are fully ready, we will like to share our index page with you. When you enter the site, you will get a quick overview of activities, tours and bike clubs. It is easy to see where the activity takes place and what type of activity it is. The only thing you need to do is select, transfer data to your GPS and ignite the motor cycle. We have made the web site to cover the entire world, why the local knowledge you have can be shared world wide. So if you plan a holiday abroad it is easy to find the most interesting activities to attend. As this is a motorcycle community, the content comes from the members. We have made the web site enabling the possibilities to publish the activities, tours etc and then it is you who decide what you want to see on the web site. So whether you ride a Harley-Davidson or a Honda, you are welcome to share your experiences with other bikers.
I will get back to you shortly with more news regards the web site.
Have a fun ride,
