Since I wrote the comment almost one year ago I have bought and installed a second GPS, a Zumo 550. Both GPS maps (the Navi and the Zumo) have drawbacks, but generally one or the other gives me the information I want and/or need.

I have also bought paper maps for almost everywere I ride and I do a good Google Map recon of the area before I ride. I've knocked out a few Iron Butts in the meantime, so when I ride I basically know the area before I ride there.

But, when I was putting together a group ride I came across an instance where GPS maps and paper maps failed me and only asking directions helped. New contruction, and there is almost no way around it. I was proceeding on Route 9 in Maryland into West Virginia and came across Charles Town, WV. Google Map shows a continuous route, so does the GPS, but when I came through the town, I found Route 9 consisted of a series of lefts and rights and not well marked, I might add. I hooked up with a local, who lead me through the area, but now I am a bit tentative about leading a group through that area. Sometime this summer the road construction is supposed to be finished, until that time I am avoiding it. So, in this case, common sense overrides GPS maps, compasses and paper maps.

Next we'll want auto pilot so we can read the paper while riding on our tour.
A scout without a compass

I have a son in scouts,we use his "BOYSCOUT"compass and paper maps and have not yet "NEEDED" GPS.

I have tried to mount a compass on the bike,but I have not found a good spot without interferance.

Ya, I have one of those and use it a lot. But still, It's a TOURING machine.
I don't disagree but there are several around here who feel it should also have a voltmeter, gear indicator, cig lighters, Gerbings plugins, high wattage running lights and horns that don't sound like a volkswagon as well.

Guess it all depends on your perception of what a touring bike for 22Gs should have.

i have a cigarette lighter and a Gerbings plug on my 93.i guess i have a Touring machine
