rally roadbook pics/homemade roll charts

Hi Im looking for creativity from fellow inmates...

whats have you done for roll charts, roadbook holders on your bikes, if you have an xr! better yet!

I know rallies are popular in australia so peeps from down under and N.Z. im all ears!

thanks

I saw a guy use tupperware and two dowels with a rubber band as a roll chart, NOW THAT IS AWESOME, but looking for a mounted fixed item.

thanks again

awesome thread seth, it get better towards the end for us thrufty xr guys, really thanks so much...

Im getting way excited about the possibilities and really want to deck out the bike for rallies down here, we also have a BAJA enduro replica event, which is pretty much a no checkpoint, fastest is first open class rally where pretty much all you have to do is pin it and win.

at least that is my goal, the normal rally which is endoresed by fim is unfortunately a very slow event with too many checkpoints and very slow look at the speedo type legs, too bad...

Now I got my work cutout.

In 2 weeks Ill do my first event.

cheers!

You might go down to the "Equipment" area and do a search for "roll chart holder"

you might get results for previous threads like these:

My prototype was using a plastic chinese take-out container w/ clear lid! Too lightweight for the bike, but works great velcroed to the dash of the truck. I built mine in the vertical foremat, uses 1/2 page of 8.5" x 11" paper. [I'm an old enduro guy, so as much as I love Dakar, vert works better for me than horizontal...] Shorter carriage bolts @ vertical format, as well.

Width of container @ flat sides= 4.75". 5"-6"carriage bolts. For each spool:
nut to fit-milkjug washer-rubber grommet- mj washer-nut--
--nut-mj washer-rubber grommet- mj washer-nut- nut[tight against bolthead]-plastic soda cap for knob [Goop(tm)ed to bolthead/nut]

Total depth of container, w/ lid: 2"; so I put the holes for the spools 1" up from the bottom; and 2" in from the ends- so I have almost 2" thick roll capacity.

Drew a basic 2 column template on computer, gives 6 nav boxes per column. Top third of box: directions; bottom 2rds: 1/2, mileage [including turn #, mileage from last, heading,mileage of leg larger; 1/2, space for tulip. Printed out once, to make blank photocopies. Draw in w/ fine point Sharpie, neat / legible.

Next up: something a bit more robust, at least a brand name 'tupperware' container, sized for the bike...
