DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless.  Check and re-check.


You must complete the Far North Insanity ride in less than 14 days.

You must obtain a Dated Business Receipt (DBR) at the start and end of your ride, and in each of the other locations listed above. Also, you must not ride more than 350 miles (600 kilometers) without obtaining a DBR.

Your route must be entirely within Canada. If you leave Canada for any reason during the ride, you must re-enter Canada at the same location as your exit, and you must document the exit and re-entry. You may choose any route that meets these requirements.

Your official ride duration is determined from the starting and ending DBRs.  PLEASE check these documents and make sure the time and date are correct! is strongly recommended but not required.

If you cannot get a DBR, you must take a picture, including your motorcycle, to PROVE you were in each location.  Remember it is YOUR responsibility to prove your starting point, route, and ending point.  Spotwalla goes a long way towards this proof.


There is no addtional merchandise for this ride.
