I can see that I'll be packing an aluminum bottle of Pendleton for the evenings next to the spare fuel.


I think I can answer that one. The long-running BMW F650GS Rotax single that helped Adventure riding along is exactly 652cc and probably why they chose that cc amount.

In fact, I'm signing up for the first time and riding that platform. It will be on a Husqvarna TR650 Strada/Terra (BMW owned them until recently), a breathed on motor, different suspension, etc.

This will be my first motorcycle "race" ever, but between wbedient's suggestion and fact my dad raced this event in the early 70's ....I'M SERIOUSLY EXCITED about this event!
That's it and mainly the fact that the XR650R is under 652CC
When Quality matters,Its all about choices.
