Add one more newbie to the pre-registration on a Husqvarna Strada (converted to Terra). Just found out they had an Adventure class and my bike qualifies to the exact cc: 652cc of Husqvarna/BMW/Chinese/Italian goodness and suspension travel that is second only to some of the pre-86 class.
I'm going in the Adventure spirit for this event...hauling everything I need for the event on the bike, leaving it camp while I do the race (& poker run too), and putting it back on for the ride home.
A fellow ADVrider forum member is planning to go on his KTM 690 and looking forward to hanging out with some other ADVRiders.
Now to decide whether to live with my 2/3 tread TKC80 or splurge for a D606 or comparable for this event. I don't think the new Mita E07 I'm using for the UTBDR is the right way to go.
Looking forward to this! Last time I went was in 1973 when my dad won the team class in Mattawa. The smell of Castrol and watching two-strokes bounce across the desert was powerful stuff for a 4 year old.
