Yes - I was going to say, that device in the video is actually the 'SpeedoCap' unit by ERTF (I have one on my bike) - which is basically the new/expanded version...

It hooks into the UNIK GPS unit (supplied by the organisation) and you can select which info you want it to display from Cap heading, Speed over ground, plus a Trip meter (based on the info in the GPS). The really nice thing is, you can actually select a combination of two readouts at the same time if you wish - so speed and heading, or trip and speed etc.

Although the trip section of the display is not adjustable like an ICO/IMO unit, it does reset itself to the correct distance every time you pass a waypoint - so makes a good back-up ICO, just as long as you don't get too lost of course!

I typically use it in Cap and Speed combined mode - and it is handy for any speed controlled zones as DavidD says, particularly as the Speedo section has a visual warning if you are about to go over a speed limit that has been set in the GPS...

Cheers

Nice interview with David Reeve - and also nice to see the guy Pal Anders helped pushing the emergency button after breaking his leg

This also shows the adaptations in riding style the elite MX and Enduro-guys have to do to prevail in Dakar. Excellent interviev - or monologue

Clearly an amazing rider, just went to his rider page and he had some very consistent good finishes!

Rod conquers Dakar Rally



It’s a long way from mustering sheep and cattle in Queensland’s outback to conquering the world’s most challenging motorbike desert race.

. . .

Less than 20 Australians have ever finished the 8000km Dakar rally in its 34-year history.

. . .

“I do the Finke desert race and the Australian Safari over here, which are the best we’ve got to prepare ourselves but things like dune riding in Peru are totally different to anything that’s available in Australia,” he said.

. . .

On another stage a crash resulted in his Camelbak springing a leak and a bout of dehydration after riding for a few hundred kilometres without water.

“I was getting hazy and it was affecting my vision but I just tried to take it easy,” Rod said.
