I ride as a commuter and as a traveller when on vacation.

I don't ride much for just the fun of going out for an hour, I like to have a destination.

Of course some of my destinations can be as simple as as a good mug of tea at a place I like.

As for GPS's, I like to plan with a paper map, and have it in the tank bag, however the GPS knows where I am (far smarter than me), and I often program a custom route in based upon the paper map.
