About half way down the page and you'll see the class structure.

Thanks. Strategizing. (not that it will matter, I'll be last or close to it, but fun to think about)

Any thoughts on a heavier vs a lighter bike dealing with rutted sand toward the end of the pack? Momentum vs float?

Lighter bike, bring that little KLX 250 and have some fun. Finish position isn't important, the size of your grin is

If I finish, there won't be anything to stop me from being happy about it!

I barely ride the 250, so I'm not comfortable with it, feels whippy. That's why the 650 is still a possiblity. I'll take both to the Pine Barrens over the next month and decide. Thanks for the support!

Dawn: Let me know when you plan on coming down, we have a few practice sections that are similar to Sand Blast.

Happy New Year to all.

KLX it is. Had a great time playing in the sand yesterday (sand was packed and heavy, but good warm up), floats over everything. I love the GS, but thanks for the push to the light side!

Cool, glad it worked out for you. Take Jack up on His offer if you can, working on your cornering skills should help you a lot. Best of luck!

Glad to hear it. I really look forward to having you ride this thing. Trying to talk Coleen to coming on the Super Sherpa!
Rally is so fun

Yeah, Colleen! Throw the bikes in the truck and let us know when you're heading up. I wonder if they ever had two husband/wife bike teams on the roster?

Hey, I'm gonna let you guys in on something I'm working on. It's still in progress, and I'm looking for feedback.

http://www.nasarallysport.com/main/Rally-University

Tutorials, classes, and explanations. So, especially feedback from new guys and gals, on the questions you have as a new racer. And you guys are seeing this before the car guys do.

Nice job Anders!

And for new rally folks, there is a red/green X in the back of the rally guide you will recieve when you check in at Rally. So if you forget yours, yes I have, there is one ready to go in your guide.

Cool, good info in there.

One question I see pop up here from time to time is "do I need DOT legal tires". My response has always been kind of like what you mention in the FAQ about non DOT turn signals/brake lights.... "that is between you an the cop that might pull you over". Might be worth adding something like that to the FAQ.

As far as the GPS question you have in the FAQ. I agree 100% that it doesn't help during the race stage but I have found the GPS to be helpful for navigation on the transits, especially at night.

This one however shocked me, I still plan on retiring from my day job and making my money in Rally
