MD is the gold standard and most people use them on rallies so you can always find spare parts when racing. MD did a minor re-design this year so that the MD can now handle very big roadbooks better.
(I have MDs and F2Rs in stock now.)
The touratech roadbook reader is junk, in my opinion. I used one in a rally in Tunisia, and one of our customers had one in the Dakar. We've also ridden practice routes with plenty of people using touratech roadbooks. Everyone had reliability issues with the touratech roadbooks.
The KTM rally department, BMW, Yamaha France and David Casteu Sherco are using MD roadbooks since years.
For the MD you get every detail part you need. It is so easy to handle, an alluminium box and a swiss engine are the main parts. MD sold 2010 about 450 roadbooks.
The Touratech roadbook holder is not a good one, you can't it repair by your self. About the F2R i don't know nothing.
Ask me for a good price for new MD roadbooks !!!
