I've always wondered how many of the Dakar bike deaths were caused by the rider looking at a roadbook instead of at the track. Of course nobody will ever know.

On the flip side... bike guys take a way bigger risk taking their eyes off the trail than a 1-seat car guy does when looking at the roadbook or gps. Bike guys must slow down or pick the time the look very carefully.
So... big deal the car guys (very few) have to back off the throttle a tiny bit for a few miles to study. Seems fair.
I have done a 6-day rally with only roadbook (pre GPS days) and loved it!! It's so much fun!
