Adie, maak ene waarvan die tolle/rollers ,ens 'n los magasyn is wat apart is van die hoof kassie wat die dryfmeganismes, ratte, katrolle, dryfbelde, ens., n apparte kas is, m.a.w, die drydstelsel is los van die sub-kassie wat die papierrolle en tolle is , wat dan net inklip in die hoof-kas in.
n Mens kan dan  2 van die magasyn tiepe roller/tolle sub-kassie he en net dit uithaal en vervang, in-en-uit-klip met n ander ene waarvan die nuwe rol instruksies reeds ingerol is. So iets , dink ek sal beter werk want dan kan die inrolwerk ook weg, enige plek weg van die rallyfiets gedoen word.
Dan wanneer , se bv. by DSP n rol nuwe instruksies in die roadbook ingerol moet word, is dit n pyn, dan kan n ou met my voorstel, slegs net die reeds gevulde magasyn sub-kassie met die nuwe instuksies inklip, natuurlik klip jy die "gebruikte magasyn net eers eenvoudig uit.
Sal ook lekker werk wanneer dit reen , die wind sterk waai , ens.
Die magasyn kaartrol sub- kassie kan dan ook makliker waterdig gemaak word.

Onthou net, ek net 30%  wins met die verkope , plaaslik en internasionaal.

Will it not work if you make something like a crank to turn the roller while guiding the paper with the other hand? (Like the handle of the pencil sharpener)

@gser
Ons het daarna gekyk (cartrige model) maar die ekstra gewig (15% swaarder en 9% groter), kompeksieteit ens ens het dit onprakties gemaak.  Aurora gebruik magnete om aan te dryf so daar is geen 'clutch' of koppeling nie.  Hulle het basies ou modelvliegtuig tegnologie gebruik en dit aan die roadbook holder 'gepatenteer'.  Een van ons ontwerpe het die 'cartridge' die motor met dryf en al aangehad. Dit kon sywaarts uitgly.  In totaal was dit net 2mm per kant groter as ons huidige ontwerp. As ek reg onthou sou dit nogsteeds die kleinste en ligste eenheid wees.  >:D

Die twee hoof redes dat ons eers 'cartride less' gegaan het is 1) die Aurora patent, ek dink hulle het ook die 'Roadbook Cartridge' ge patenteer en dan eenvoud sodat ons sommer uit die staanspoor 'n beter produk kan lewer. Die enigste wysiging aan die eenheid gaan Policarb in plaas van Perspex vir deksel wees.

Ons idee was ook om die cartridge te 'laai' terwyl die roadbook opgemerk word.  Dit is egter nie so goeie idee want mens wil so 300 to 400mm van die rol op 'n slag sien. 

Die 'Loader' waarna ons kyk sal aan die holder haak en die papier gids sodat dit 'mooi' inloop. dit behoort op alle holders te werk. 
@Rhino, ons kyk na 'n tipe slinger om vinniger mee op te rol.  Die  probleem met 'n lang roadbook is dat dit 'afrol' as jou hand glip.  :(

Work in Progress.

Adie that is really great stuff! :thumleft:

My only advice is to make it slightly wider to accommodate a wider road book which sometimes happens.

Has anybody attempted to develop / invent a better way of getting the roadbook loaded with any degree of success?

These are pretty cool. Very tough. Held together by magnets and lots of cool features. Pricey! Many of the Upington guys have them.

I looked at this model. Very cool and high-end engineering developed by a Greek engineer (PhD)!  :thumleft:

Interesting stuff from here: http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=190818.0

More about Rally Comp:

The Rally Comp device (yellow box) will be key in navigating the Sonora Rally. In this shot I'm 0.48km from a WPM (hidden waypoint), and the arrow has popped up to guide me in to the exact point. The arrow pops up when you get within 800 meters (same as Dakar). Once you get within 50 meters you've "achieved" that point and the arrow disappears until you're close to the next WPM in order.

Another great feature of the Rally Comp is the "Pass Alert" function which allows cars to warn bikes or other cars they want to pass (same as Sentinel in Dakar). When the button is pressed in the faster vehicle, a LOUD beeper on the receiving vehicle triggers warning them of the presence of the another vehicle, and giving time for the slower vehicle to move over and make room for a safe pass.

There are MANY more functions in the Rally Comp including automatic timing and scoring, track recording, compass, odometer, and more. It's clear this device will make rally safer and more enjoyable for competitors, and easier to score for the rally organization. We're thrilled to be using it for all competitors in Sonora Rally



And I remember very well reading this part of your thread!!! My heart sank with your bike!!!

Hi,

I have x9 vids up on youtube... various small clips joined together... not to show my riding (LOL) but rather for those who did not make it to see the terrain...

Super Special (Prologue), Stage 1 Start, Superman fell, Stage 1 snippets, Stage 2 Dune fail, Stage 2 Dune win, Stage 2 Mountain Section (3 parts).

On this link: https://www.youtube.com/user/AlexRG76

Cheers!

Me too. Thanks.

I only went over that road in the Jeep but I remember every steep hill and nasty boulder so clearly when I look at the vid.

Where can I get more info on the race other than here : http://www.amageza.com/west-coast-baja

Looks like a cracker of an event!

I am pretty interested in this event, and if I have it correctly the 2018 Amageza should follow around 10-12 months later if you guys catch my drift?

What do I need, what sets the classes apart bike wise, 450 or 690? etc etc.  Thanks
Stroom op!

If you want to know if the event will happen email info@amageza.com. At least you'll get on the mailing list.

More info is available on the 2016 event at http://www.amageza.com/west-coast-baja.

There's rumours that Amageza will be held in September next year, but nothing's certain yet. At one stage it was going to skip a year, but now it looks more likely we'll have one in 2017 after all. Let's hope.

Classes are 450 and under, and above 450.  In 2016 some rode with roadbooks and some with GPS. There no saying if Alexander will continue with this format. It was supposed to be a qualifier event for Amageza, but GPS is not training for roadbook navigation.

Thanks, Ive scouted this thread and the website.  Looks pretty cool, the roadbook is a tad bit intimidating I must say.  I will send a mail so that I can get the info.

Did you maybe receive a reply Tman21?

I see last year entries opened in October and this year is very quiet.

There probably will not be a Baja next year. Keep your eyes open for another type of navigational challenge aimed at adventure bikes.

2017 Amageza will probably happen after all, but moved to September.
