    Starting life as a purely German language application "motoplaner" this has recently morphed into a motorcycle specific app available in several languages. I had a little play with it and it offers the useful facility to select fastest, curvy or very curvy routes (hence the name I guess). It's quite user-friendly to plan out a route and allows you to export. I just haven't figured out how to draw a route on the map as motoplaner did, this one just seems to show you a set of waypoints, and I don't know if you can use it to navigate offline (there is a phone app so I suspect it does).

    Worth a look: https://kurviger.de/en

    It seems to create some 'interesting' twisty routes in this part of the world. Good find.

    I found the site does create a route, but if you use it to plan a route between continents (from Europe into Asia for example) it defaults to waypoints only. Apparently this is a bug in the system, hope they can sort it as it looks like a useful tool.

    Trying to create a route to Paris threw this up

    No path found due to maximum nodes exceeded 7000000If you think this is a bug, please let us know in our forum.

    I wouldn't like to rely on this as my only tool, but as a generator of interesting alternatives it looks good.

    seems to have an odd concept of time ...
    My route yesterday should have taken 9.5 hours ...
    It took about 7....

    I love Kurviger. It has been my number one navigation app, more or less since I discovered it. With frequent updates and excellent responsiveness to user input, it has morphed into a must have app on my phone. I gave up on dedicated Garmin Satnavs several years ago and have never looked back. I used to rely on Motoplaner for most things but then along came Kurviger and even though it used Open Street maps and had no Street view like Google offered, I found its selection of great routes compelling. Once Google had put their API prices up to the point very few mapping sites could afford them, several disappeared (although a number fell back to OSM), it has become a no-brainer to use Kurviger.
