I'm all signed up!

What tires are people using ( Sorry I don't want to turn this into a tire thread)?
Where are most people staying overnight? There doesn't seem to be much establishment nearby.

Cheers,

Ryan

Hey Ryan, I understand most people camp. I'm told the closest hotel is nearly 40 miles.

I made the mistake of running MT21s last year. Worked really well at RWV, very badly at BRS. The roads get chewed up by the cars and you end up with a good bit of loose gravel.

I think we are going to run Dmack soft compound tires for this event.

R you sure? Might consider the intermediate compound and just reduce the pressure a touch, say around 3 psi?

I've never done a RallyMoto so I shouldn't post, but because some posted about the Pirelli MT21, I'd like to add that I had the back tire step out on me twice last weekend on the tar part of a dual sport ride. Once was on the brakes at tip-in, and the other was when I touched the gas in exit. No drama, but a warning not to push the side of the tire much. I am a timid rider too. Just sayin'

Depends on what we can get. The soft compounds were great in Maine on the 280Z and had no wear in the gravel. With cooler temperatures and night stages I think the softs might be worth a try....plus we are not running the big hp car.

sprockets

For those familiar with the area/terrain of this rally I ask for a little gearing input for an Xr650r. Currently running a 15/49 but have a 14 counter and 46 rear as well. Any combo I should consider outside of what I am running?
I'm not the fastest rider nor do I care to be. More interested in a good all around set up that makes sense for the course. Thanks.

Gear the bike to run 100mph. Not sure what that would be for your bike but with the sprockets you say you have I'd start with 15/46.

I ran 15-48 on my DRZ at sandblast. I'm sure the 650R will pull close to 100 with 15-46.

15/46 on an XR650R is the 100mph setup.

Good luck everybody! The entry list for BRS bikes looks eerily similar to RWV. Would love to be there, but I'll have to settle for a practice run with JJ and Braden tomorrow just for kicks. See you in the morning, boys.

I'll see the rest of you, hopefully, in Feb. for Sandblast 2013. and John (M.A.G. here) is on the mend, so he'll be ready as well.

and Jenna....let's have some more Tarzan Yodel videos from you!!

Oh.....and Doug....Glad you made it out of the desert alive. Kudos on the effort out there. It's not as easy as it sounds. The politics, alone, is enough to make me think twice about going back to Mexico or ever entering V2R (as was planned for a future run). They'll have to make some changes before I put myself in front of those caged Leviathans again. .

yeah it was pretty intense. Been writing up my story on my blog, just posted the next part of the story where it starts to get interesting: http://dakardream.net/blog/?p=708

Not sure if I would do this race again. I am looking into something that is a better fit for my long term goal.
