Yes it does , but it's hard to study it for planning , a printed one would be easier to use Sat here at home

You aren't planning fuel stops to that degree shirley? Just tap on the satnav when you get past half empty. One thing I love about my ZZR-25 litre tank and 50+ mpg = plenty of distance between fuel. thumbs

Sat nav works OK for servo's
I use my Navman for it all the time.

Downside is it may find the nearest which is OK if your desperate
but not ideal for planning a route waaaay ahead.

I use a map (paper or web) to plan my ideal route
then a quick google search on some of the larger towns or villages
with their name + petrol / service station normal
tells me if there's one there.

You should try it out here Dave,
theres a few places that they find the body's weeks later!

Had my King 7 and half years, was out on it today,
but.... a 16.5ltr tank is bloody annoying!

Jumped on the GSX14 and took off North,
first time I stopped was Childers, 190 miles away!
Had I been on the King I'd have had a sore arse and
been detouring long ago trying to find fuel.

Shame. Such a brilliant fun bike with a killer motor
but it isn't suited to the long hauls.

Still wont sell it though... Laughing
