I would really like to fallow the roll chart insted of following the yellow brick road on the gps.
i've had the same issue back when i rode a KLR650...
use your GPS as an odo.
as for the rollchart. i glance at it as i come to turns or certain areas for warnings/wash outs/etc but i use the GPS probably 90% of the time.
i've had to do the math when i had to backtrack and while annoying it's doable.
also, you are constantly resetting your odo on the ride. probably every 5 or 10 miles is a reset.
