Even though you're joking w/ that, you can try this...

I do this all the time, it's sort of a poorman's GPS:

Before you ride, look at you map and make a list such as this:

290 west
R - FM 362
L - Hwy 105 to Navasota
R - Hwy 6
R - FM 3090
etc...

And use scotch tape and tape it to your gas tank between cap and steering stem.

Also, put the map in your trunk and if you lose track of your written route, or at a gas stop you can check your map for any updates or changes to what you want to do...

I use the top of my tank bag, with notes and a map for backup

You can also use a grease/wax pencil and write directly on the tank. It comes off with a quick wipe and isn't affected by rain or wind.

I go where my bike tells me!!







(this is where I say j/k...but I'm not!)


The list is the best way to do it....I got the idea from FMX. The riders use it to list the tricks they want to pull off. I like to tape it to the triple tree a little better than the gas tank.
