Not sure I'm up for it but just incase does anyone have the route sheet so I can attempt to program my old Moose Pacemaker. I don't have a resetable odo unless its brand x and resets are back to zero.

Kap'n,

 

I have never done a timekeeper or ISDE event and to be honest have no idea what the difference is between the two, so my question is, If I show up to ride this thing and have no clue what I'm supposed to be doing will I piss anyone off or run the risk of being used as traction material by faster / better riders?

 

I'm a sensitive individual and don't want to get my feelings hurt  by mean riders :cry:

No Willy, I think it's still possible to have fun in a TK. If you don't have all the fancy gear then be sure to get on the same start minute as someone who does and follow their lead.Usually there is plenty of time given between checks to ride at a reasonable pace and you actually end-up waiting til the right min to go thru the checkpoint. Maybe Grandaparacer will chime in w/ some real knowhow here...Marty?

whatever minute you start...latch on to someone's wheel, and chase them to the finish. It's a bit easier if the the chasee is close to your own ability. Would be my luck I'd try pacing a way faster rider. You'll most likely know someone on your minute, anyway...off you go :ride:

I heard a rumor that you had fractured a wing :cripple:  Are you going to share with the class what happened??

Ah ha.... The lemming approach, there's a method I have used in the past with fair success, Thanks for the info Bowhunter.

 

I am hoping to talk the Enduroguy out of retirement, I may not be able to hang with him for long on the trails but I have become pretty good at reading his lines from the back of the pack. What do you say Major Tom, want to lead an old, fat, broken down, out of shape timekeeper noob and another riding buddy from Oak Harbor  through the gnarlies on Sunday?

 

I might even be able to find a cold beer or two in the back of the truck when we get done. :cheers:

I doubt I will make it, I dont even know if I can figure out my old computer anymore or if it even works. My last time keeper was 2002. I will be thinking about it though. Ill dig out the old Pacemaker tonight and see if it even turns on.

You can request a late minute start and you won't be holding back any of the most competitive riders. Then you can follow the course and begin to get the picture. The NMA website has downloadable rules. Buy a chart holder so you can use the roll chart and make sure your odo is working; otherwise be sure you ride with someone who has one! The course will be a fun one and you will get your money's worth; fill your camelback...
