Dated 9-25.

I reckon it's time to pull the trigger if you are looking to attend.

Bring candy.

roll chart ?

This will be my first labv. Im looking forword to navigating with a roll chart for the first time. my question is the odometer on my 990 is not resetable by tenths. So if at any point I get off course there will be no way of getting my mileage and the roll chart to line up again?. Is this going to be a problem? I would really like to fallow the roll chart insted of following the yellow brick road on the gps.

i've had the same issue back when i rode a KLR650...

use your GPS as an odo.



as for the rollchart. i glance at it as i come to turns or certain areas for warnings/wash outs/etc but i use the GPS probably 90% of the time.


i've had to do the math when i had to backtrack and while annoying it's doable.


also, you are constantly resetting your odo on the ride. probably every 5 or 10 miles is a reset.

I would recommend getting a TrailTech or similar computer for the event. It will make your life much easier when using roll charts. Installation is pretty simple as well.

Just checked the website, and of course they discontinued the old standby Endurance model. I'm sure you could find one somewhere.

The promoters will stress relying on the roll chart over GPS so that slower MPH tortoise sections are noted.
