    It doesn't really matter what map you use, even no map is fine unless you plan on going off course. then use whatever your more comfortable with. Turn "off" recalculation of route. turn "off" u-turns. I personally just use topo canada, then the gps can't recalculate the route.

    Looks like Team "Ride On Time" will be back for more in 2010.

    Finishers in 2008 with 5 team members.

    Alex: Kawasaki KLR685
    Brian: Honda XR650
    Dan: Honda XL650
    Ron: Husqvarna TE610
    Tom: Suzuki DRZ400

    Most likely some line up changes in our group this time round...but we're getting it sorted in time for entries...(I hope! :rofl)

    I've recently replaced my comfy chair in the den with a saw horse from the garage. I figure sitting on the edge of a 2 x 6 will be good training for my butt in preparation for the 525 seat :D
