Howdy dvwalker,

Having a GPS route or track would take all the fun out of this type of rally, its the skill of using the roll chart, keeping track of miles covered so your sure of where you are that makes this type of rally a challenge, its NOT a race but if you get lost you will come in last.

There is NO TIME for VHS movies when one would rather be adventuring on a Ural.

Thumb An example of what you need to ride in the "Black Dog" for navigation use.

Howdy All,

This is what you need to navigate the Black Dog, rally. The GPS is NOT needed but is handy. To the left of the GPS is a "Trail-Tech" rally motorcycle computer, it keeps track of speed and distance in 1/100 of a mile that makes keeping track of where you are in relation to the Roll Chart easy, the Roll Chart holder is mounted below the computer. One of the great things about the Trail Tech computer is that you can adjust the odometer in 1/10 of a mile, UP or DOWN, that way you can do a mini-reset and keep your odometer reading VERY close to the Roll Chart, even a small error can over time really throw you off. Mount your Roll Chart holder so that you can operate it with your LEFT hand, that leaves your RIGHT hand free to operate the throttle.



As you can see in this photo, the Roll Chart has mileage marked in 1/100 of a mile, you can get by with an odometer that reads in 1/10 of a mile but having one that reads in 1/100 will make the job of navigation much easier.

Howdy dvwalker,

Yes, I still watch movies on VHS, still have a WORKING cam-corder that uses that HUGE old media. That being said I have recently shot my POS pc and am now a Mac user and watch most movies on DVD. To ride the Black Dog, you will NEED to follow the roll chart that is provided.

Hey Cobby,
thanks for that, some of us have no inkling of rollcharts and such things.
Your input helps me make sense of how all this stuff comes together, having missed turns due to inaccurate odometer/ related to tire size changes in my past, if that makes sense. Cool! thanks!
I like it when I finally 'get it',
Oh,, and ,,
show 'em how it's done Mr. Cob!
