The roll chart is LOOOOOONG, best advise I got last year was to cut it in half at the lunch break, load up first half in morning and second half after lunch. Made the roller operation much easier. Points above regarding GPS are dead on, the route(s) are very clear and called out. It is easy to cross check GPS and roll chart at any given spot.

Most likely will follow the regular route and go around most of the "hard ways". Will be riding the GS again.

I'll sell'em for $25/rollchart holder including shipping (CONUS)......I'll take inventory and post what I have in stock.....
Ok, I have 3 black/1 red. Two folks have already expressed interest.....please pm me if you'd like one too....

Did anyone go to the Motohelp thing last night? Any good info to pass along? I was going to go but was just too tired to deal with traffic driving there.

Last night was great. Nothing necessarily new or earth shattering, but a good group of folks.

There will not be an "adventure" route this year.
Regular route with easy/hard options.

1980 & 1970 XS650 Yamaha Desert Sleds

My two friends are planning to ride day two from Barstow to Vegas on these two restored Yamaha XS650's:

A 1970 mostly stock Yamaha XS650 and a highly modified 1980 Yamaha XS650 mounted in a Champion Frame with parts mounted from over 15 different bikes.

We did a shake down ride last Saturday to see how many parts would fall off and rode 'em hard and put 'em away wet:

I always hope to go the distance, but sometimes shit happens.
Hope everyone stays safe this year.
