2) Most people think this but I have NEVER seen one report of a 76-78 user ever complaining. Once you ride with one you see there is no problem. You don't look at GPS while puching buttons unless you like crashing. Also the buttons on 76 are much easier to feel & use with gloves on than 60. The 60 has a few problems, 76 none, 62 has no 12V (deal breaker), that leaves 78 at only $200 as the new choice.
3) In the big picture of motorcycle operation cost, $200 is not a big ticket item amertized over 3-5 years. Roll chart is great and has lots of information all riders should be reading but for Navagaton, GPS is like autopilot.
I know you are right Jerry
78 is the best choice
and GPS is great , ve have been in so many arguments on the trail about where we actually are on the map and the GPS ends all arguments
but I also ride solo a lot and on the 950 so I am also looking into the 478/378/376c/276c types , can they take a dual sport download just fine ?
will you always be issuing roll charts ?
or are you trying to get away from them
