Put the battery back in the Husky yesterday so she is ready to ride when the man gives me the all clear sign, can't wait to see how the computer upgrade works out. I also ordered the hand guards today that I needed with the turn signals integrated into them, should be one less thing to break off now.

I need to get the HP2 on charge and ready for New Years day ride, hopefully the weather will work out.

So would any of you guys have interest in doing something like this next year (2015)? I am thinking hard about this and it would give me plenty of time to prepare and get a team together.

2015 might work for me - especially if I don't get a spot in the Iron Butt Rally

Marty....this one is more little bike oriented with 12 hour 600Kilometer days and road book navigation so this may not be the one for you but the other one may fit nicely. When do they let participants know if they qualify for the Iron Butt Rally.

2015 seems doable...
Need a 6" roll chart holder
Need to get a spot tracker

Need to get used to reading a roadbook and using the trip meters with it...
trailer up the little bikes will allow for camping gear, tools and supplies

sounds like a fun challenge

Rumor has it that Santa is bringing me a Spot 3. If that's the case you're welcome to my 1.

Always had an interest in the roll chart/Rally thing but not much opportunity around here so it seems like this would be a great opportunity and its far enough out I can prep the bike and practice reading a roll chart. It doesn't seem that Dana has any interest other than how fast could she convert their roll chart to a track.

I saw that and it seems pretty nice and I could convert stuff I already have for practice.

In other news, riding by roll chart is akin to circumnavigating the globe using a sextant and a map from circa 1792.
