To avoid u-turns on your motorcycle tour, you can correct your Via & Drag points on your planned motorcycle trip with Tourstart Tour Optimizer.

If your Via or Drag point is more than 150 m/500 feet. down a side road, a red exclamation sign will appear. If you click "Optimize", the point will be dragged back to the main road, and then you will avoid annoying u-turns.

If your Drag or Via point is less than 150 m/500 feet. down a side road, the point is autmoatically dragged to the route. You can "undo" if it was your intention to ride down the road.

Want to ride on the unpaved roads or perhaps not? Just enable the highlight function and you can decide on your own. The unpaved roads becomes red and it is easy taking a decision.
