Well, yes, Furkot can be a trip planning tool which is a good thing when you want it, but on the other hand if you want to layout just a quick route, you can do that too without any accommodations, fuel stops and other things it offers. Just draw a route, create a gpx file of the route or track, upload and go. And you don't have to follow it if you want to explore by yourself... To me it works both ways. On a side note, I've experimented different ways to explore from strictly riding planned routes to not planning at all, and I find that a combination of these two is the best choice. Moreover, no planning can be hit or miss situation when you just missing some good places and on some occasions even going in circles, or wasting time on the side of the road looking for these "nice" places, or wasting time looking to refuel instead of knowing where the fuel station on your route, etc.
