Where did you get that ODO?

My questions at this point are:
- am i asking for trouble using aluminium for the backing plates (will the threads hold or should i have used steel)?
- will the stainless bolts seize or cause galvonic corrosion in the aluminium? Should i use loctite/anti seize of some sort?

Next question is can i used countersunk bolts in 3mm sheet aluminium or is it too thin?

Thanks in advance.
Hi Gany,

I think the aluminium backing plates will be fine, anything over 2 x the dia of the bolt in thread depth (16mm in your case) will be plenty with that alloy. You can also think of it like this; that alloy has roughly half the yeild strength of the steel in a nut so double the thread depth of a nut and you'll be right.

Use either loctite or anti-seize (buy a big jar of this), I use either on anything except fairing/bodywork bolts. It depends how often you'll be taking it on and off.

You know what happened to my 3mm sheet tower! But like I said I think it was mosrtly my fault due to the bends I did and it not being supported well.

Cheers mate.

Looks good gany. Are you going to run the side plates flush with the rear of the mount? If so is there enough space between the bolts and the forward mount to fit?

The parts look well built, nice design.

Thats the plan. Ive had to notch the plates to allow for the bolt heads. Will find out whether it fits or not when the parts are cut!

Sorry for the delay, Pilo, I only notice this post today.
F2R RB730 cables and plugs are provided by LOCATIS, a portuguese company.
You can contact José Ramos. I believe he will help you.

Agree very much with all Bill's comments, especially re: odo being above the roadbook. The ODO is absolutely critical to keep up with moment by moment.

Awesome to see people all over the world hard at work on this stuff! At some point, we'll have to organize a way to make and share roadbooks with one another.

I had thought about asking that. I've been given the impression that roadbooks are earned, not given. Like the Marines.

Drop and give me twenty songs on the recorder I'm making a few routes this summer and I'm happy to share if you ever make it up to VT

That's in the works. I'm assisting someone who is developing a new roadbook creation tool (software) and associated website that should significantly simplify the process. It’s basically an advancement on the Google Earth approach I've been using to create roadbooks. Not sure how long it will be before something is ready to try, but from what I've been hearing of the plans, it's a tool that I'd love to have!

If you're in this thread, you've already earned half the points you need!

Software that allows you to use a tablet would be really cool. All the routes I've done, I had a notebook and a pen. I would stop and write the mileages down at intersections and hand draw the tulips. Took forever but I had fun.

what about a GPS and a vid camera..... you could make the roadbook on your time, not the ride.

Its already done just need to get Tripy to get maps for all other countries outside of Europe.
