Default Riding App - What do you use

Does anyone here use a riding app they really like to map their rides and also provides acceleration, lean angle, elevation, etc.?
I did a search in the forum and didn't see anything on this topic.

I recently downloaded the Yamaha My Ride app to my phone and so far it looks pretty good but I was wondering if anyone else has an app that they are really happy with?

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

Never heard of anything tracking lean and such. Nice idea though.

So far MyRide seems pretty good. Here is a youtube video showing a little about it.

The video is very much an ad for the app.

Here is a write up for it from Ride Apart.

The nice thing is you can add other brand bikes to it. So you don't have to own a Yamaha to use it.

I have the Victory Rides app. But I can say I have never used it. I have an old Garmin I can load GPX files into, and I use to have an easy to use program to build routes. But now TYRE want me to register some kind of account thru Google that get me an API or something. Well Google wants a credit card for a "no charge free" use account. Hmmmm

I don't use one, I just start it up and twist the throttle and enjoy the ride.

I have Rever for when i need to plan a ride. I'm not too concerned about tracking every ride myself- but Rever does track a lot of different data points. Various metrics relative to time, distance & speed (average, max) Altitude, to name a few.

The main idea is to plot out the desired route on a laptop, save it- and then bring it up on the mobile app. Can share as a Rever route for other members, or a regular gpx file- which any unit can read. I think you are able to plot a route on a mobile device, but this doesn't work too swift last I heard.

The free version has a lot of features. High limit on # of waypoints. It can be a straight up navigation app. The paid version adds a few more. A group tracker among the more notable toys. Meaning everyone in your group is plotted on the underlying map in real time. If your tailgunner fell behind/ had to stop with no chance to signal the group- you would all see that guy's dot falling back.

I have Rever but rarely used it till recently. Very nice how the desktop versionlets you pick a starting point and a destination, then add as many waypoints in between as you want. It'll pick an automated route between waypoints or let you select every street turn-by-turn, letting you get as exact as you want. Anything you save on the desktop is immediately available on the mobile app. I did not know about the group-tracking function on the paid version but that makes a ton of sense for group travel. I should use it more often.

I had used the Victory Rides app. It was a great concept but the app usage was horrendous.

I've used Rever in the past, not bad.

I'm a fan of Scenic and in-Route.

I use: "Brain" and its utterly amazing how it works.. I went on a very cool ride that got stored in my memory. Then I transferred it to my buddies by a social media called: "Taking". But the best part is that the route is never erased and it can be live-streamed to to anyone via an extension called: "Follow Me".
Don't let me forget, "Brain" as has this totally killer feature, It can "sense" a route that was previously not saved that leads to exciting new riding. Happened to me just yesterday

I was just thinking to myself how my motorcycling life has been lacking one thing... a "riding app" for my phone.
Wanna see how I track lean angle?
But now that I can know what angle, in degrees, this was my life will be complete.
