This would be a great place to start learning by jumping right in, and a lot closer...

That's when we are all either at the Dakar or glued to our screens following it.

I get a feeling you missed this years event?

This reminds me a bit of the old phrase;

"When my ship finally came in, I was at the train station... with a bus ticket in hand"

For those of you who are following this, we have set a date for a Nav training on January 20,21 and possibly 22 (long stage day).

You need for first two days:

Your own bike with 80-mile range
Scrolling full-size Mapbook reader
Odometer and Cap Heading display (look at Rally Blitz app)
GPS unit that can track you

For third day (if we do it):
Bike needs to have 120-mile range
Rider needs to have a SPOT or similar device

Cost is set right now at $400 per day.

This class will cover all of the basics of mapbook rally navigation and then go into detail on advanced techniques as required.

For information contact jimmy @ JimmyLewisOffRoad.com

Very good timing Jimmy...

Any idea of min-max class size? I like the idea of the 3rd day as well.

Jimmy,

Any chance of another date in Feb? Any others interested in February?

Simply cannot make January, but could carve time out of Feb and would love to get some training in before the 2014 Baja Rally.

Thanks for all of your support for rally and riders!

I can handle as many riders as sign up, at least for the two days because it is easy to sweep routes and check for safety on training routes.

The third day route is a little more difficult and depends on how may rider on the route we choose. I have a few options all dependent on participation.

We are still light on January entries so February is not an option unless the head count is there to support it. I know that putting on these classes is a labor of love and not a money maker, just ask anyone else who has tried. It is hard enough for most guys to gather up the funds and time to go and do one of these events/races let alone spend money on proper training. And then you have to go and practice the stuff we teach.

But, we really need to have more rides who understand the navigation part of rally so that it can be done correctly. Or you can just do dual sport rides and follow track logs because that is what it will degrade to...

JIMMY
