Thumb Rally Road-Book Ride Greater LA area.

Anyone interested in a rally style road-book ride if I take the time and effort to set one up?







DATE: TBD

LOCATION: Kramer Junction

Loop-1 (Easy): Fuel range/Total Miles = 95/135 Easy terrain, easy navigation.

Loop-2 (Harder) :
Fuel range/Total Miles = 65/110 Harder Nav, more technical terrain.

Loop-3 (Intermediate):
Fuel range/Total Miles = 75/125 Intermediate Terrain, moderately hard navigation.

Recommended Maps: Friends of Jawbone OHV Map

Dates: 7-8 March


More teasers form the route:












There is a nice variety of terrain.

I would be interested. I've never used one and would like to learn.

It's quite fun. The big issue is the initial equipment set up.

Although to just try it out I suggest keeping it simple to see if you like the concept.

This can be done with something as simple as a clipboard and you just flip the pages.





The cheapest set up I know of is the Acerbis plastic RB Holder




Not great, but gets the job done.

Some go the DIY route:





UPDATE: Rally Navigator now supports the 3" format so anyone just wanting to try it out can get by w/ a $30 Enduro Roll Chart Holder. Just get the deepest one you can find.






The bad news is that an odometer that does 2 decimal points is almost mandatory. Lots of trails in the desert. I think some ODOs can be set to one or two decimal points.

Here is a good starting point to get familiar with the concept, understand the terminology and familiarize yourself with the symbols:

Cool! Looks like I need to learn a whole new language! LOL
I saved the manual pic so I can start to get familiar with the symbols. What does a decent roll chart cost and where can I buy one? Is this what riders use for enduro competition or rallying events?

This is the Rally set up.

Very expensive.

Have a look here for toys:


Rally Management Services

The Rally setup is a wider format than the Enduro

Sounds fun - i would be interested - depending on how technical the course is which you create. I just had my first ever ride on dirt last weekend (on my WRR).
I am a highly experienced rally (car) co-driver.
... I might want to try competing in bike rallies in the future. ...

I'm definitely interested and I'd come down from the bay area. Let me know how things develop.

I am. For sure. I need to learn and practice. I'm not posed to getting entire setup. I plan to attend RMS as well
