I rode it in '95 also. It was all roadbook, pre-GPS back then.
Rode a KX250. I set it up Baja style which I figured out Day1 wasn't right, geared way too high.
Didn't really learn much about navigation prior to the race so I learned as I went. Made a huge mistake that cost about 1/2 hour on Day1 by not trusting Bruce Ogilvie's navigation. He's very good at it and I was an idiot.
I finished 10th overall as I recall.
It was a fantastic experience.
