I'm in, but haven't decided which event. Not exactly sure what to expect as I've done few events. I don't like the race mentality, but I want to ride something that is technically challenging ... maybe that's the DS?

Watch for me out there on the dual sport route and try not to use me as a speed bump.

The most technically challenging will be the Ironman poker run, and you will get a bad a$$ t-shirt from it also...although the DS poker run t-shirt is pretty cool too. Not that a t-shirt is the reason to ride an event, but I'm just sayin'.

On the Dual Sport you do a lap of the Ironman then head off following a roll chart for the rest of the ride. It is the best of both worlds in my opinion. It will be fun on your Husky.

Sorry you're going to miss it, I'm still on the fence about racing the 650. After taking it trail riding on Sunday for the first time I was impressed and have no doubt I could do the adventure class. Still I have a real dirt bike so that's probably the way I'll go. maybe bring the BMW for the dual sport run Saturday.

Iron Man for me. Sounds like it will be the best mix of technical challenges and awesome tshirts.

I'm in, planning to do the race on my 520.

I'd like to do one of the poker runs too, but not sure I want to wear myself out before the race. This'll be my first time though. You guys that have raced this before, do you ride the Saturday events and the race?

I usually ride a single lap of the poker race and then race the 100 The biggest issue I have is keeping blisters off the hands.If you have that in check then both laps should be fine.. Blister busters are a good investment...This year I"ll be racing the 950 so two laps on the 525 durring the poker run might be in order..

Dump a bunch of baby powder in your gloves right before you go. Seriously...works awesome for keeping blisters away.

We're getting close!

As it stands now, my plan is to ride the dual sport on Sat and do the race on Sunday in the Adventure class.

Look for the truck with the MotoQuest stickers on the side windows.
