Despite the "gentleman" part, I believe he means you.

Right. Wrong digit, though.

Been eyeing up this event for a couple years now. Never have done one before. What is used for navigation? Roll charts, or just follow the marked route or guys in front of you? How many miles and/or in the saddle time are these events? Thanks all.

Primary navigation is by roll chart. It's very easy to follow since the roll chart pertains to road sections only. All the off-road sections are fully arrowed, so you can just concentrate on the trail.

IF we can provide a GPS track we will, but we won't know that until the last minute.

Total distance is probably going to be a bit over 100 miles. Total ride time depends on a lot of variables (such as time spent at lunch, multiple loops of an off-road section, etc). I think most folks spend around 7 hours or so on the route, but it's not all seat time.

Thanks for the info. Ok, newbie with roll charts, what's the standard holder that seems to be the most common used? Any particular paper size one needed, I see a few options out there with diferent sizes.

Something like the Moose Racing holder: LINK

Personally, I'd spend the extra bucks for a cassette type: LINK

Those are just quick Amazon links, you might find them for less $.

Can you tell me how you do the sound test? I've got a KTM 620 with an FMF pipe. It's louder than stock, but not obnoxious.

I can borrow a dB meter from work, but what do I test? I'd like to replicate whatever test they do at the event. What distance from the bike? How many RPMS? (not that my bike has a tach)

It's too early to know if I can make it, but if my bike's too loud, I'm obviously not going to waste the trip up there.

I've looked through the pics of previous years' events. Looks to be a great time.

The sound test procedure is here: LINK
It's basically 20 inches from the outlet at a 45 degree angle.
96dB(A) is the maximum limit.
You will need to know what RPM to test at for your specific model. I don't have that info with me at the moment. You will need a tach of some sort.

Is there a chance for fuel along the route or circling back near the parking lot to hit the fuel can? Or do you have to carry your own extra on board? Just not sure of my range with my 2.25 gallon tank, especially for 7 hours of right wrist flogging. Thanks.

I've heard your bike. No worries, its not its noise that is a concern. Your non-functioning headlight however.....


I think I am in for this event though.
