Love the vids man, thanks!

Question on the roll chart. I noticed you never used it. I know it's a requirement for the run, but how useful is it?

Oh dude that rollchart, well I broke my rollchart holder a while back and I bought this one and it sucks. you have to tape it onto the rollers and I messed it up on the first day. If you don't tape it right or the tape slips it just spins on the spindle. The frustrating thing about rollchart holders is sometimes they can't hold a whole rollchart, you have to divide them up. It takes time to load it up, I'm totally put off with rollcharts. I was trying everything I could do to save time because last LAB2V I ran out of time. Also I have a trailtech vapor and you have to hold the left and middle button down to reset it so it pretty much requires me to stop everytime I need reset the computer. To save time I just use the tracks. I actually bought a cycling computer just so I can use it with a rollchart because I can reset it with one hand. I can't believe no1 has designed a simple rally computer yet Most modern bikes you can reset the trip with a button the handle bar or dash by holding the button down. Not the Vapor

This is the 2nd LAB2V I've ridden and after the first one I learned that the tracks are easier and save time to navigate and I use the streamers to double check if I'm on course. So you notice I say left here right here in the videos and I look for a streamer and I point it out. That's the best and fastest navigation in my experience with LAB2V. They say to use the rollcharts first then the tracks second. I do it the other way around. I usually get bored and frustrated with the roll chart half way through the event also haha. They also tell you not to ride alone too but I still do I'm a renegade

It could be I haven't learned to use that moose rollchart holder well yet. my last one had the slits in the spindle so all you had to do is fold the rollchart into an arrow and stick it into the slit. Sometimes there are errors in the rollchart also. So it's good to have multiple forms of navigation to double check you are on track. The TAT is a good example of this because the rollchart will say one thing and the tracks will say another and you have to figure out which one is right haha. One thing the rollchart is good for in LAB2V is informing you of what is coming up ahead like a hard/easy splits, dangers, notes, etc... And if I had knew that I could take the easy way out of lovell canyon I might have haha.

Part 12 - Finish VLOG
There will definitely be an unforgettable event of a lifetime that is forever immortalized through this video series. Thanks to everyone that came along for the ride and District 37 for putting a world class event.

Here the pictures I bought from Grumpy. I am not very happy with the price I did the cheapest thing and bought the cheapest print and scanned it. I can't believe digital copies are more expensive, its like you don't really have to produce anything it's already there right!? The pictures weren't very good also. I know it's a lot of work to go out into the desert and take pictures of people riding all day but there's like 400+ riders I'm sure more people would buy pictures if they were less $$$ Also to top it off the pictures have watermarks on them that I photoshopped out and they wrote on the back of the photos with a sharpie so when I scanned them I have to edit out the marks as well. You know me I'm el cheapo! Also I paid money for the photo I don't think they should have any kind of markings or watermarks on them.

Showgirl picture that's the victory photo right there! You gotta get that one! It's better than 2016 year's because its like they use a brown garbage bag for the backdrop on that one. You would think they could get the whole bike in the photo right?


2016 photo for comparison


This on the second day after we crossed the freeway


2nd day also I managed a little wheelie on this one!


1st day near California City I think came around the corner with the thumbs up. This was in the 1st video.
