Email me – — We are out of building materials due to the COVID-19 has slowed down our suppliers severely.  I will update the page when I have route sheet holders ready. 

Rugged Routing – Back in 2010 my first Route Sheet holder lasted 15 minutes. My second – I let a friend borrow and it lasted 2 hours into the second Turkey Run – shattered with sharp pieces of plastic everywhere.   There had to be a better solution !  Something not disposable – something without sharp edges and designed to last.

Machining it completely out of Billet wasn’t cost effective and I found an extrusion that would fit perfectly.

Finally – after many sleepless nights – numerous iterations – design changes, material changes, extensive testing, and research – along with numerous contributors who have many years of hands on experience – we have something that will hold up under harsh condition, something you can depend on, and Proudly Made in the U.S.A !

Products – R3-B – 3 Inch Route Sheet Holder with Bar Mount

R3-B – 3 Inch Route Sheet Holder – The main housing, knobs, and mount are made out of aluminum.  The shafts, retaining clip, and bar clamp are made out of stainless steel.  This is designed to hold up under harsh conditions.



R3-M – 3 Inch Route Sheet holder with Magnifier

R3 – M – 3 Inch Route Sheet holder with Magnifier. This is a work in progress – but finally at a point where we can offer them to the riding community. The magnifier took many iterations to get the right balance between magnification versus distortion. I had a good solution 2 years ago – but the company that was making the magnifiers outsourced it overseas where it became extremely difficult to obtain. Other companies offered really nice magnifiers but at a huge cost increase. I finally found a company where I can reliably get the material. The images aren’t the best – but new images will follow.

$80.00 — RAM Mount version is $90.00

R4-B – 4 Inch Route Sheet Holder with RAM Mount

The Active Minds R4 – B/R – is a 4 inch Route Sheet Holder that gives you about a 1 inch taller window allowing more lines of the route sheet to be seen over the R3.  There is a cost to having more lines – that is bar space and a little added weight.  I prefer the RAM mount option over the bar mount for this route sheet holder and mount it to my bark busters to keep the bar clear.

This designed for the rider that wants to have as much of a heads up as possible – which I like – nothing worse than being surprised by a sudden turn finding yourself in the middle of a Hero section and not feeling much like a Hero.

Comments from many dual sport riders – ” Always looking for more of a heads up – Plus I can add critical images to confusing intersections”

Pricing – pricing is a bit more due to additional costs in materials and machine time.

R4 – B – $85.00 – Complete with Bar Mount

R4-R – $95.00 – Complete with RAM Mount
