stupid question, but I remember there is a difference between CA and NV regarding mirrors.
one state allows 1 and the other requires 2. Anyone knows which one is which?

yea doesn't matter really - I carry them in the backpack
but just wanted to know...

getting close to ready... all last minute deal and can't spend much on the beautiful fancy RMS stuff

so I found out that the KTM 690 speedo can be "adjusted" using the KTM remote switch
http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-950-supe...pmaster-switch



Then I dug up my 15 years old home made roadbook holder, and gathered ram mount stuff from the garage... Not the prettiest, but that's what I can afford right now...

Mike,

I would be all over this but I am already on a long ride at that time.

I know that myself and maybe Bobzilla would do this ride at a later date. I will PM to see we can buy the roll charts.

Hi Bob! Maybe Rocket can come with us???

Wish you all a great safe fun ride!

Baja Joe

Reno Rally Navigation Ride - Roadbooks are coming together!

Inmates: (forgive the Cross Post)

It looks like we are a GO for printing Roadbooks on roll feed printers:

These are test books for the Reno Rally Navigation Ride...



Need to adjust the layout, margins etc. We will have 5 inch wide printed images with 1/4 inch margins on both sides. 5 inch header and tails included for getting them taped up in a road book holder.

Plan: Reno Rally Pre-Run on Saturday...get the final versions to the printer Monday.

I'll share more pics and details after we have the final products in hand..

Event Update - Pre-running this weekend - getting it all together!

Guys:

I'm going to pre-run the route this weekend. The Sunday "Reno Rally - Northern Loop" is currently 279 Waypoints and 160.84 miles.

So I have a detailed track to reference during the pre-run, I have exported the track from Navigator and loaded it to my Garmin using the "GPX" feature in the "My Routes" library. This feature currently downloads the full resolution GPX track of the Reno Rally - Northern Loop which includes 1904 track points. A Garmin GPSMap60 will only hold 500 track points per track, so the track was filtered down to 499 points using GPSBAbel.

In the near future Navigator will automatically filter the GPX export to 499 points and send it directly to MapSource for loading to a GPS unit. Very handy.



During a pre-run, I will capture the actual track in my Garmin, plus a separate High Resolution GPS logger (Holux MC 1000C or USGlobalSat DG200 Data Logger) I also make any voice notes in a GPS enabled voice recorder on my iPhone ("GPS Voice Recorder" in the Apple App Store) along the way (dangers and things you can't see on Google Earth)



Once back home, I will use the "Overlay GPX" feature in Navigator to place the captured Track and Waypoints I have dropped in my Garmin over my hypothetical track you see in the image. This along with voice notes give me a clear picture of what needs to change in the final route. I hold off on detailed tulips etc. until after the pre-run.

I'll make final changes to both Saturday and Sunday routes over the weekend. Using the "Print Roll" feature I will create a single sheet PDF file about 300 inches long. PDF files go to the printer Monday AM - ready for pick up Wednesday PM. 20 copies of each days roadbook for a total of 40.

40 roadbooks x 300 inches each = 12,000 inches = 1000 feet stretched end to end.

I am building GPX files to share with the riders that show Waypoints every 10 miles or so + any bailout points onto roads where a chase truck can easily get in to pick up broken bikes (hopefully no broken bodies!)

Printed route outlines, list of rider contacts, emergency contacts (local sherrif, hospitals etc) are being prepared for the riders also.


I'm not trying to toot my own horn with all of the details, just painting a picture of the route making process and illustrate how far Rally Navigator has come - it's a GREAT tool for producing quality roadbooks. I give FULL CREDIT to Scott Whitney (HogWild) for teaching me most everything I know about creating roadbooks - he is The King!

Once you see how its done, other folks may create more riding events like this - that was the whole point of developing Rally Navigator.

Looking forward to a great weekend!

One suggestion regarding the 500 track point, why not allowing the user to chose 1 track with 500 points filtered OR creating multiple tracks with 500 each.
Older unit allow 20 tracks with 500 points each. Would be good to be able to use all of it.

We can talk GPS if you want on the 22-23

Thx
