I used the last 3 giant zip ties the mechanics left on my bike to hold my GPS on the final stage in Mongolia when the mount broke at km 9

I have some rental bikes set up for this class but they may already be spoken for. I will know more in a few weeks.

Now it is looking like the dates will be August 27-31.

I'll be making a post soon with the specifics for the class.

This will be very similar to the one we did earlier in the year but we will finish it with some longer stages, maybe a couple over a couple of days. If you want to skip the earlier training and do some stages, we may make that an option.

JIMMY

The August Rally Nav class is 100% on and there are spots for a few more riders.

We will be doing a long section on the last two days, the way I have it planned now. If you want to participate in those stages I can also set that up. You'll pay for the map books and some of the related support costs. I have some other commitments right after the class but I'm sure I could set riders up with some additional sections if further practice is desired through the help of Hogwild.

If there is continued interest we will repeat the class later in the year.

PM me for specifics.

JIMMY

With the lack of winter down there, I'm waiting for some sessions while it's cold and snowy up in the North.

Are there suggestions for bike equipment, range, etc?

Keet it going JL!

Id definately be interested in a class later in the year, cant make August though, work commitments. Thanks for offering this Jimmy, I know its only for a select few riders and isnt a money making endeavour, but it is very valuble training.

Today Jimmy gave me the list of roadbooks he wants printed for the class in 2 weeks. One of them is a really cool route we haven't used in a couple of years. You can see photos and read some experiences from that past ride here:

That was one of the biggest turnouts we had for DVR.

To all the people going to Jimmy's class, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A BLAST ! ! !
