    I'm no expert on gps's but sail has the GPSMAP 64S on sale for $272.99.

    Used it yesterday on the Creemore ride with no issues.

    Comes preloaded with only major roads, no backroads or even side roads for that matter.

    Maybe someone could suggest some decent maps I could load either for free or paid.

    Check out this thread: http://www.odsc.on.ca/.xenforo/index.php?threads/open-chest-maps.22825/

    The maps are free, so give them a try and see if they suit you. If you want more coverage, look at Garmin City Navigator N America for about $100 and get all roads from major highways to the smallest paved and unpaved backroads and down to some forest roads - definitely good enough for most Dual Sport needs.

    If you need more detail for Ontario, look at Backroad Mapbooks - about $150 for Ontario and include many offroad trails, including some from previous organised DS/Trail rides.
