I recently went through "GPS info overload" I finally got tired of looking and just bought a Garmin 60Cx. It's a smaller hand held unit so I can Geocache with it as well as put it on the bike.
It would have been nicer if it had a larger screen when I'm on the bike but honestly, I don't find myself looking at it that much so it's not been a big deal. I don't mind being lost for a while so I just ride around till I see something familliar. I have had to use it a few times to get out of the woods.
The handheld "hiking" type units are more durable so that makes it good for me and the bike....I'm kinda hard on stuff, I seem to gravitate to water and mud and adverse conditions so the bulletproof 60Cx seemed perfect for me.
The Nuvi's looked good as well as several others for motorcycles but I finally just pulled the trigger and was done with it.
