No, I bring my own over (with Euro maps loaded on). I'm more of a general ramble around type of person than a defined route follower - but that's just me. For every major site that I've unknowingly ridden past, I've found two equally nice places that I had never heard of. And, if I miss a few, that just gives me a reason to do another ride

A GPS with a database of motorcycle-friendly establishments would be a nice thing to have. Also just having a file to transfer to a customer's GPS Would be a great thing.

I tend to use my GPS more as a means to record each day's ride track (dumping nightly to a laptop) and to find the closest fuel stop when I haven't been paying attention to my bike's consumption
