I bet I can throw at least 500 miles of good dual sport routes together and probably 1000 miles is a reasonable goal. One of our current loops is 260 miles. Start a website with a subscription fee, like a club and you get bonus points towards your entry fee by uploading routes. That way the people that don't make routes contribute in some way. www.routebookclearinghouse.com
Ned, another business opportunity for you

Tomaz - Thanks for the info. I'm trying to find a local US source. I may just replace them.

Nordieboy and Crankshaft - The Odo is an old-school enduro computer called a Pacemaker 3. I had it lying around. Pretty burly and shows fixed mileage, speed and adjustable mileage (or whatever else you want to show). I'm not sure they are even sold anymore. I tried to sell it a few years back with no takers so now it has been re-purposed!

Support crews will be using Tripy at Evia next week. I am still skeptical,
but the organiser has ensured me that all bugs have been ironed out

And on that note, I have about 3000kms of Roadbook routes for mainland
Greece, 99% of it can be done on larger bikes as well (gs1200, 990advs),
I scan them all at a copy shop that does architectural plans / blueprints

Now someone just set up the damn club

I have seen the ridewithgps site which can I think create a pdf of a route. Its built I think for bike riders but it should still work. Create your route, get a pdf file of it with turns etc and off you go , I'm sure there would be more to it but its a thought, excepting of course that it wouldn't be able to create warnings and the like. The local printer here will print directly onto a roll of whatever length.

My 'Tuareg' Setup

Hi,
just found this excellent thread. Great input folks.

I'm just back from the Tuareg Rallye in Morocco (2000km in 8 days). Raced there in 2011 and 2012.
And here is my roadbook setup. It is fairly basic as I am on a tight budget.

It worked very well and i like it so high up, because I can have a quick look on ICO or roadbook
and barely have to move my head. And I don't care about my front wheel. The only time to look down there is at the gas station to check for air

Also I have free views on my factory odo and this works as my ICO backup.

I use a self adhesive magnet right on the front disc, no hassle with drilling e.g.
I fix the roadbook cover with an extra piece of cut out inner tube. This way it will stay even after chrashing.
The original tiny rubber ring is just to small.

I think Waytek wire might have a connector similar.

they have the weatherpack connectors at least:

or these:

Thanks - for reference with the group.

Touratech sells them one at a time.

No one else I can find in the US sells a kit. You need to source all of the individual parts from a supply house.

An ADV thread here...
