haven't been successful getting folks together… its a 1,500 mile one way trip for me and at this point would need to do an ironman pit crewless with a mongrel super plush/racetech suspension and stock headlight (unless I use my Marathon Rally Raid HIDs… think that fairing would block too much vision though)… if only I could find a suspension and lighting sponsor ... looking like next year for me.

What is the course like? Right now I live across the pond in Japan but if luck favors me I'll be WA sometime in the fall of 2015. Granted I don't have a whole lotta off road experience with my 990 (it was my only means of transport so I didn't want to break it) but I'm thinking of finally riding the bike the way I intended to once I return stateside and buy myself a commuter car (the cost of TKC 80s per month would probably exceed my car payment if I rode to work on it ).

That was the problem with us heading to the 24 hr at Perry Mountain, just a long way to go and a short time to get there
If someone was nuts enough to Iron man this race on a big bike we would make sure they had the support they needed

Look us up when you get in town.
The course itself isn't to bad, its very fast in some sections, extremely rocky in others and chopped up like crazy in others, then there is my favorite sections, freshly mowed grass, Too much fun on a open class bike!!!!
Few real jumps, nothing really over 4 ft high.
However, if it rains it turns into a almost impassable course with very few finishers in any class. That's happened twice in the last 4 years.
If it rains us guys on the ADV bikes are screwed in a big way.
