Dala Navigation Challange 2011

Well what can I say...

My weekend started off on friday morning. Packed up my gear, meaning tent, sleepingbag, maps, camel back, clothes and some tools for roadside repair. (Surprisingly small amount of tools needed to take a highland apart)

During the week before I made and fitted a larger fairing and the 21/18" weels where equiped with Maxxis 6001:s. I also put the roadbook i place and also a simple bike computer to keep track of the track so to speek.

356 kms of tarmac and gravel roads where covered on friday afternoon and i arrived at Laxsjön at 17:30. Just in time to put the tent up, get a shower and grab a beer before dinner. After dinner the planning took place and i found a friend to do the challange with. He drove a Cagiva Elephant with a 900cc Ducati engine. Two quite exotic bikes!

Team name was decided to be Exotics and the rest of the evening whas spent planning the special stages, the checkpoints and the routes in between. We wanted to visit 6 checkpoints (minimum 5 to enter the challange) and to do 11 SS:es. All in all we planned to drive 245 kms of gravel road, paths and one small peet bog. All in all the SS:es and the CP:s would give us 265 points and we expected to get another 8 points for socializing with other drivers. (Great rule!) This would give us a total of 518p.

The team mate Sam whas a fast little devil on his Cagiva and i had trouble keeping up with him on gravel roads but as the going got tuffer the highland proved superior. The Cagiva got stuck on stones and in the bog for some 15 minutes but the highland just overtook it all! Great bike, but i would like a better skid plate that protects the oil filter and the pipes better.

Anyways the navigation whas running like clockwork and we where lost only ones for four minutes. The roads and tracks where great and this year one of the SS:s whas a 11km roadbook with 45 notes. Alot of "reset trip" button pushing! Whe hade two breaks for a snack and had lunch for half an hour. The total amout of time we where allowed to spend whas 9 hrs and our starting time whas 08:11 and we finished the challenge at 17:09, 8 hrs 58 minutes after staring! All in all we ended up at 538 points, a difference of 20 from our prediction of 518 and this landed us the first spot in the challange, same as last year.

In the evening we had a barbeque and watched movies and pics from the day. One or two beers might have been consumed.... On sunday morning we had the opportunity to run a 135km long roadbook on the very best gravel roads i have ever ridden! After lunch i headed home (on asphalt roads because of the leeky oil filter)

A great great weekend and i really think you should take the opportunity to try it. It will be back next year in a similar form.

Cheers

Wiring Diagram

Does anyone have a copy of a wiring diagram they could send me? I'm assuming there is no service manual available, but if I'm wrong I would like to buy one.

Thanks for any help.

Robert

Olli, no one has responded, so I guess we're out of luck. I'm attempting to reconnect the wiring behind the windscreen, and there are two 9 pin connectors that will both connect to each other. There is no continuity of wire colors through the connectors no matter how they're connected, so without a wiring diagram showing wire colors, connecting them is just guessing. So I have a 50% chance of getting it right, but I don't know what might be damaged if I guess wrong.

Kurt - great to hear things are coming together. Anything you can share as to the direction UHLN will be taking - bike MFG, engine MFG or combination with an OEM

There is no reason though that in the not so distant future there could be something near, we've just got to keep Johan sweet.

Good luck

John
Is this project dead (dual inlet conversions)? Even one that's not a straight bolt on?

Not sure which project you mean....but I've made some wax patterns for Johns bike.....the twinlet can be seen in almost it's final form.......However John is a big rough lad and crushed the throttle body when taking a peep at it

I'll possibly have it cast and machined for spring....then find a victim to test it as John's engine let go

If you mean another project then please disregard :)
