Dusty Butt SS 1000 Roadbook V.1 is ready for ride !

It contains 264 rows = 39 psc A5 pages = 8,2m of navigational information including all crossroads, fuel stops, dangerous places and other safety and navigation information with part / total distances. Dusty Butt Roadbook will keep you on the route. This kind of event GPS it’s not most reliable navigation device because it try to recalculate the route or do some other silly things and get you lost if you don’t know your device good enough. Roadbook is just basic map information printed on paper turn by turn and only difficult thing is read and understand information and stay on map and route when riding.

Now three years route, ride, and event planing is almost done but Dusty Butt SS 1000 it’s still 100% not ridden. Looking forward to see all you guys and some IBAF members on start line. We’ll checking out are carrots hard and potatoes soft or ”vice versa” ? I can guarantee that the ride will be one of the toughest IBA rides in Finland ever!
