    Yes indeed, those high quality route sheet holders from BZR are again available.

    You can get them at the event or have them shipped to you ahead of time.



    The 2-State Dualsport Ride is a route sheeted event which makes it necessary for you or someone in your group to have at least one route sheet holder.

    I had one of the magnified ones and it was awsome. I forgot to take it off my KTM when I sold it:huh . I guess I will have to get another one this year.

    Funny I dont remember paying $65 for it...... I think it was somewhere around $30 4 years ago..... thats quite a mark up.

    it started out as a hobby and he was selling them at near cost, but since then, material costs have skyrocketed and his time is more important to him.

    yeah, they are awesome. I just bought one myself. That's why I asked him if they'd be available for the DS run. They work great with bifocals!

    and there she sits...... on my KTM....... that I sold and forgot to take it off...... DOHA. I can honestly say it was the best roll chart holder I ever had.

    I will probably be picking one up before the ride, but I am a cheap SOB..... and Im searching for a deal that I will never find. Im sure before the ride you will be getting a PM from me.

    Being that the plastic Moose ones go for around $25 retail, it was only a matter of time before the price went up. Cripes the BzR ones are milled out of billet aluminum with a Lexan lens. Bobby started out making a few for fellow club members as a hobby with little charge (if any) for his time. Now he is doing it more like a business so he needs to get enough to make it worthwhile for him.

    2-state route sheet or enduro route sheet?

    2-state is usually a little wider than enduro. I have the preliminary 2-state loaded in my BZR holder and it fits great.

    I wouldn't be helping the secretary of our club to sell these if I didn't think they were a good deal.

    Any routesheet. :dunno I'm just wondering how the magnified one looks. The Moose ones only really show one line at a time (magnified), but that one looks like it covers a good deal more?

    Here ya go:

    Moose version only has a .5" - .750" magnified surface to view. If you are lucky, you could see maybe 2 lines, on ours its over 1.8" inches, almost 2" of viewing where you can see 5,6 sometimes 7 lines.

    Pictures to follow.

    I ended up buying the magnified one last year - they are awesome. The moose / EE ones are blown away in quality and ease of use... It has an oversized compartment so you don't end up trimming off needed info, as well as being a bit deeper for longer rolls. The magnifier works great; very easy to read at a glance...

    I have a magnified BZR also. I've have had mine at least 3 seasons. Indestructable. I crushed one of the MSR plastic ones in a crash.

    notice the color of the bark buster in the last picture. KTM enduro riders don't buy cheap products!

    I like the fact that it's wider than the Moose chart holder I have. Now I want one.... PM sent.

    Now you fellas take it easy on Madriver on the route sheet holders.

    He doesn't make a dime on them himself. He is trying to be helpful. On earlier rides lots of the big bike guys knew all about GPS but had no idea about where to get a route sheet holder. And we have another guy in the club (Bob, used to be Bobby but I guess he's all growed up now) who makes them. So he is trying to link folks together.

    These really are good route sheet holders, but the supply can be kind of shaky. One guy who works as an aircraft machinist makes them "on the side". I have been trying to buy a second one (so I don't have to keep moving it from bike to bike) for over a year now and Bob still hasn't hooked me with it up. He has been getting other riders their first ones first.

    The default is the Moose ones for around $25 bucks I consider them disposable. I have left the fragments of several on the trail in spots where I have crashed.
