This has been on my list for a few years now but didn't have the right bike. Thought about running the GS but schedules allowed me to chicken out

Schedule looks much better this year and there is a new to me 530 in the garage... so no excuses

Can someone point me to the noob waiting area

I am going to be right there with you on this. Been wanting to try rally for awhile now and just haven't had time, but this year I will be there one way or another! Keep an eye out for two guys from VA on 1200GS's, we will be the ones way in the back.

PS: Whats the word on tires for the big bikes?

I think this is the hot ticket for a 17 "knobby" but I'll have to check the rule book....

Everybody's gotta be a comedian...... Those paddle tires do look pretty wild, and seeing as I have never really ridden in sand maybe I should find some.

A few noob questions for everyone's entertainment:
When can we sign up, and should I wait until after 1/13 to buy the rally membership and license or do it now??

Best local hotel / motel?

Lastly, the G sensor the rules say you need for riding after dark. Does this event require one and if so where do you get them?

-Thanks

THe G sensor is not required! Regs should say you only really need a pair of flashing bicycle LEd lights.

A few local hotels... lots of us stay at the Jameson, but there are a few others.

I havent checked the website, so I dont know when entries open... should be soon, though! I would wait until after the new year to get the membership and licensening and stuff.

Tires have to be DOT.. at least they have to look that way from a few feet Paddle tires might not make that cut :wink

What type of advice would you give a newer rider thats never raced a rally like this before? I rode a lot as a kid, quit once I got my license, and just started riding again about 2 years ago (12 year break). I currently race harescrambles but have spent some time riding higher speed forest roads out west.

I ride a CRF450x with a steering stabilizer which I know will help in the sand. Are these rallys ridiculously tough or should it be not to bad for me? Either way, Im there lol.
