Is your GPS your nemesis, concerned riding buddy or trusted tour director?
If you answered…
- nemesis… chances are you don't own a GPS. When you ride, the object is to get lost, enjoy the scenery and find your way back – eventually. You shudder at the thought of a robotic voice coming from a freeloading gizmo on your handlebars. The only thing you want to hear and see in front of you is the open road accompanied by a sweet symphony of your exhaust. Ahhhhhh.
- concerned riding buddy… you probably own a GPS and appreciate having it along for the ride. You may start your journey exploring the back roads with no particular destination in mind. And just when you start to feel a little too lost, you turn to the GPS for directions that'll get you home in time for dinner. Thanks, buddy.
- trusted tour director… you definitely own a GPS. You may pre-plan trips with coordinates for gas, food and lodging. You appreciate a schedule like a fine meal and want to get the most out of the adventure. And there's a good chance you lead rides, so you'd like to avoid getting your group lost and hearing about it for the next five years.
Now imagine this – you arrive at the diner to discover it's out of business. And you're forced to eat an emergency granola bar that's been riding in your saddlebag for the past two years. The good news is your GPS found an open diner just 20 minutes away.
Although today's GPS units for motorcycles are smarter than ever, they're still not for everyone – even if they know a good place to eat. A GPS screen can easily become a distraction when you're out on the road. So if you find yourself looking at it often, it's best to go the safe route and leave your GPS buddy at home.
