'Just signed up for this on as I've been wanting to attend for several years now. Lots of new Peeps to meet up there, and a chance to see more of AR than just passing thru on the TAT we did in '11.

I'm wondering out loud which bike to bring: WRR, Husky TE630 or Husky TR650. Not having been it sounds like there will be lots of gravel/non technical trails and roads. Warloop was no problem on the WRR, and maybe I'll try it on the TR650. Does anyone have an idea of the split between bikes of various sizes? It would give me a better idea of what to bring to this one.

Nobody knows. SLAP 2013 may end up with more than double the registration of SLAP 2012 and we all have different bikes. Many people are first-timers such as yourself. Imho, your three bike options are pretty similar and wouldn't limit my ride options much taking one vs the other.

Flip a coin if you can't decide. Or bring all three.

We're less than two weeks away

As stated, we've closed the Rally Shirt order and started production on these "limited edition" collector items.

There is still time to register for the rally though, you just need to do it now.

Bring the WRR or/and the 630.
Some of the single track is narrow, rocky, and tight and will prove difficult if not impassable on the bigger bikes.

Krabill has raced his WRR out there a couple of times and there is nowhere you cannot go on that bike out there. (not a challenge )

Sounds like good advice. I'm going to bring the WRR (assuming I can get rear tire, chain/sprockets replaced in time) and the TR650 for some back country roads. There's room on the trailer, and it won't take much more diesel, so why not..

Wicked Does anyone need a bike for SLAP? 2001 DRZ400e in NWA

I live close by - reasonably close by - and am looking for a new owner of my 2001 DRZ400e.

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=884626



I've also got a ramp somewhere in the garage. Bring your pickup, RV or trailer and pick this DRZ up en route.

Hope this helps someone out.

I logged in just now to ask this same question - F800GS, 690 Enduro or 450 EXC-R. I wondered if anyone was coming on a "big bike". I was thinking about riding up on the F800GS, but I see that's probably not a good move. I'm leaning toward the 690 and some non-Krabill riding.

There is riding there for every type of bike. Anything from a KTM 200 up to a Harley will do fine. Tiny single track up to asphalt twisties. It really is a very diverse area with something for everybody.

450, 690, 800 . . . just pick which one you want to ride and there will be appropriate trails for it. Or bring them all and stay a whole week

There are plenty of twisties in the area to justify bringing a sport bike, too. The campground is right by a paved road with really nice surface.

Work has been so crazy I'm getting down to the wire on getting bikes prepped. And now my son let the non-English speaking moron operating the crane at the scrap yard drop the grapple onto my 10 ft trailer bending it and breaking some welds. So now I need to fix it along with the bikes. Or maybe bring the 16 footer and buy some E-scrap while I'm out there and write off the trip.
So far the Connie is the closest to being ready and wifey and I are planning wandering the Ozarks for another week after the event on it. Hope to find time to fix the buggered chain adjuster P.O. fubared on the KTM and while I'm welding put the kick stand on it.

Just pick up a new KTM on the way up. You're rich.
