Need Route Planning Advice

I am scheduled to take a trip to New Orleans on October 5. I am riding with a group of friends and they all ride either Harleys or Gold Wings - while I will be on the Versys.

I am trying to convince them to not slab ride the entire time from VA.

Does anyone have a route planning site/ app that they have used to help plan such a trip? I guess I could always break out the big map, but thought there must be an easier way with all this technology.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the link. The guys on the Hogs and Wings are a pretty good lot. They only pick on me about my choice in bikes about once or twice a day. LOL.

Get a 16T Front Sprocket and some Highway Pegs and the long slab rides aren't so bad. Maybe an air hawk to help with the sore butt. My Versys likes it at above 80mph.

You can just go to google maps and make a route plan. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=ll
