Many of us use navigation and traffic app Waze when traveling by car, but it also has a dedicated motorcycle mode. This allows you to avoid traffic while finding the best routes to travel on two wheels for a fast, safe ride. Waze also provides notifications about road conditions, accidents, and police presence, thanks to the dedicated community of users that updates information on the app in real time. This is a free download for both iOS and Android devices.
