Ok found the line in the Technical Regs about the Rear view mirror. See below!

CROSS-COUNTRY RALLY MOTORCYCLES
GENERAL
All vehicles must conform in all respects to the 1968 Vienna Convention, even
if the country in which the machine was manufactured is not a signatory to that
Convention, and be registered for road use.
Lighting and safety equipment
Lighting equipment for all categories must conform in every way to the International
Convention on road traffic, moreover:
The original headlights and rear lights may be modified or replaced. Extra lights
may be added.
Each motorcycle/quad must be equipped with at least:
• A front light (min 55 watts or equivalent in ‘lumen’)
• A generator with a required performance to support all requirements
• An audible horn, minimum 90 dB/A, measured at one metre.
• Minimum one rear view mirror.
• A fixed water tank of 3 litres or a camel back with an equivalent quantity
All motorcycles/quads must carry the necessary survival equipment as requested
in the general regulations of the race.

This rear view mirror is an issue on going as many years as I am involved in racing
Aesthetically a mirror on a racing bike is not a nice spectacle, but practically and legally solves a lot of problems and definitely prevents of troubles.
Basic fact, all liaison stages are in public roads under the traffic law where the vehicles should be 100% street legal.
Here in Greece we managed to exclude original metal license plates and accept paper or plastic copies. But this is it.
To my point of view since I am a rider with a quad, which is much safer than a bike, the mirror helped me a lot to prevent my bike and me when a superfast car was coming after a fuel pump problem.
This is it........
We request nothing more than what is necessary for your safety.

Best regards
Meletis

ΟΚ,

one week to go, any idea of the route? Like I quote from below:

b) Is it possible to have the daily routes as (for example):

Day 2:
L1: 50kms
SS1: 100kms
L2: 50kms
SS2: 145kms
L3: 32kms

Thanks

I have a few questions, whenever you've got the time...




The graphic above says that "Routes and Tracks information are subject of change on the 15th of February".
I guess since you have already checked the roadbook, they are the final Routes? If not, no problem.

What I don't get with this funky graphic is:

a) The format of the long days.

For example, Day 2, I can see 132kms of Liaisons and 245kms for Specials.

Then I have refueling points, I assume with distances between them? (RF1 22km, RF2 144km, RF3 78km).
So, cumulatively, the Refueling Points for the 377km Day 2 fall at:
RF1: 22kms
RF2: 166kms (RF1 +RF2)
RF3: 244kms (RF1 + RF2 + RF3)

with another 133kms to finish the 377km long day. Am I correct or fucking up the maths?



b) Is it possible to have the daily routes as (for example):

Day 2:
L1: 50kms
SS1: 100kms
L2: 50kms
SS2: 145kms
L3: 32kms

So that (as above), L1 + L2 + L3 = 132kms, and SS1 + SS2 = 245kms. That would be a great help to figure out where the Refuelling points fall in the liaisons.

Thanks in advance, no rush.

I was hoping to get the daily routes broken down as Liaisons / Specials and mileage per section.
