Here's a bit of a Ride Report on the RallyMoto that took place last weekend. Not a full Rob-style RR, but I am sure you’ll enjoy the pictures and videos.
I had a great time down there, it would be great if next year we could get a larger representation of ADVriders…
It was great to see Luca, Aaron, Troye, Cliff, Bill and other usual suspects, plus meeting folks I had ‘seen’ only on the internet, like Jim Hyde and Ken of Bikebandit, and yet other folks that I had never met and who ride waaay faster than one would think…. I thought I was going fast (hit 85mph
on a stretch) but I guess I was not
. Those guys were really flying, check out some of videos of Thor, Jeremy, Ian, Bill & Co.
Fun event, very well organized, nice folks all around. Some confusion (on the moto side) on rules that led to sort of ridiculous placement of the top riders. I for one tried to be as accurate as I could on timing etc., and yet managed to pick 6+ minutes penalty
. Not an issue for an average rider who cares little about placement, but the fast guys wanted to win and the fastest fellow was downright pissed off… Oh well, he’s a youngster, he’s learning that ‘fair’ is something that exist in children tales only…
I’d recommend the event to folks in a wide variety of skills, the challenge is really w/yourself, no handlebar to handlebar testosterone stupidity.
Here’s a collection of pictures and videos lifted from a variety of amateur folks. Thanks Cliff, Vernon, John, Al, Mark: it’s really a treat to have folks willing to spectate and to take/share pictures and videos- Again thanks and hope to be able to reciprocate sooner or later-
Also a link to a pro photograper-
