Exactly my plans....and I'm not to proud to bail on the race, if I figure I don't belong. But I am sure I need to be ABLE to do it, somewhere in my soul Mainly, my racing will just be my part to help promote the ADV class. I'll camp there too, and it sounds like they will provide a tent section away from all the big rigs, and I'll be riding in and tenting it to help keep my costs down

That trip on Barlow was my first, and I was very sorry it was on the Shadow. I have run it likely 50 times since on my 990 (probly not exaggerating too much) and it is certainly on of my all-time favorite roads for the pure fun it provides.

So....on that note....whatryadoin the last few days of May thru June 1?

I'm thinking of holding back at the starting line, say 30-40 minutes, to let all of you hooligans through first. Then I'll just see how many of you I can pass (hopefully NONE ), because I'll get to see all the good...... and bad lines... entrenched deep into the desert's weak soil. When I see the BIG "poof" cloud, I'll just take a different line.
Do that and you will be dealing with the 2 lappers. My plan is simple, ride and deal with whatever happens. FWIW, I make a retirement living on the bike, I'd hate to wreck my bike and have to get a job to fix it

Does anyone know if camping will be in the same spot as last year for the ADV camp? Last year nobody at the gate seemed to know where that was and I ended up camping in the …well "danger zone" ha ha. At least I know to put reflector stickers on my tent when I get there now so it doesn't get ran over in the middle of the night.

Was there supposed to be a designated spot for the adv crowd last year? If so I never found it! Would be cool to camp with others that are in class.

That place is such a mess it would be hard to find an ADV exclusive spot.

I think the ADV area was if you took a right just after you entered there was a flagged off spot for the "pig riders" with no vehicles allowed. I went left and ended up camping out by the track and whiskey.

If there isn't an area I'm about to make one, who's in?

Definitely in. We'll likely be there early Friday morning so can flag off an area too (assuming the SJ club is ok with that).

I'm IN.
Riding in and tenting it from Hood River.
I will most likely ride in Friday,
but *might* take extra time and WABDR it up, we'll see....

What's the mark to look for when I get there?

Yes, we are located to the immediate right at the entrance gate.. DS/ADV riders only. We need to ensure we have a good spot set aside for those who will be tenting and space for the classes PSSOR will be running.

We will have 2 PSSOR sail signs out. We are behind the large gravel pile on the right hand side just before the checkin area.

So...

I'll bring my wife and 2 kids down in the truck with me. We'll be sleeping in a tent but are we OK to camp in the ADV area since we'll arrive in a pickup??

I'll be riding the KTm 690 enduro so I think that barely qualifies as a pig for this event.

In 100 words or less.....

So is the 690 a "better" bike that the XR for this type of gig?
Faster, more abusable, sucks up terrain, etc...
Just totally curious, not suggesting anything.

Check, Hang a right after the entrance and look for PSSOR sail. Will be there friday with my little DR to join the party! Can't do the ADV class cause my bikes to small but will be there to help out with any bike issues for some friends. On the fence about the race.
