Local resident here. My house/shop is 2 miles from the Start line. Going to volunteer again (7-8th time I think).

If I can answer any questions on the area or local conditions, fire away

It has been relatively dry lately. Had 3/4" of rain a couple days ago, but that is nothing for this area. Conditions WILL change by race day! Hoping for 60 by then. Who knows, it was 81 today

Right on, Doug! I got off the fence now also and paid my fee today. My wrist still hurts like a bastard at times, so between the two of us, maybe we'll make a full rider.

I ordered some Flexx bars and paid my entry at the same time, so it was an expensive day.

Back to the barn to try and get the bike ready. It hasn't been run, rolled, or even started since the Paris-Dacre in June.

Cool, stucks that the wrist still hurts but glad you can get back out and ride. I am in the same state with my bike, has not been ridden since the crash. I tried to start it the other day, cranks well but won't fire.

What is the options on body armor. I separated the AC joint in shoulder after a flight over the bars this weekend.

Ouch! Several of us wear compression suits but a plastic motocross style chest protector will also work. Key is you must have spine protection.

Heal up quick.

Sal: Sorry to hear about your "OFF". Hope you can make SB OK.

The Plastic MX style protectors are really only good for roost protection. There are some that say impact protection, but most only cover the sholders. Walt was wearing one when he got hit by the car at the big bike enduro, he broke a bunch of ribs, punctured a lung and broke his elbow.

I think if he had a pressure suit or body armor, his injurys would not have been as severe. He still would of been hurt, but not as bad.

Here's an example of good protection, there are many brands and price levels for this type of protection.

For body armor another trick us to combine a core saver with a moto jacket. I pull the back armor out of my Klim rally jacket and i wear a core save underneath. The core saver is like a vest that has some chest protection, an articulated back protector, mild shoulder padding built in.

Thanks for the posts. I won't miss SB. Started to get more moment in my arm today and it only happened on Friday. My daughter thinks the lump on top of my shoulder is cool.

Reflective material/tape

The 20 square inches as per the rules goes on the bike, or the rider? If on the rider and wearing a hydration pack, add another 10 sq. in. on the pack?

doesnt matter as long as its facing rearward. Wont matter much if your reflectivity is under a backpack, will it?

Easier to get something like this:

For this type of event use a pressure type suit. End of story.
My 2 cents of experience talking here.
