You will need a passport also. If I remember correctly, you need to have a 4 man team, no one gets left behind. I know Fabio was interested.

yeah, I know some of the Ontario guys from cannontrek.

3 to 5 guys on a team. I'd be an outcast on my blue bike in the sea of orangutans though.

Mine's silver, I'm told it isn't as fast as the orange ones.


I don't care what you ride as long as you can ride it.

Paging HolyCaveman!!! I wonder if he would ride the KLR with you guys? Didn't he take it to one of the Last man standing challenges? I would love to see some KLR up on a podium.

S2P rode a 426 on our WNF ride. That's a mean bike, kick start and all.

How is that beast on an all day ride with lots of road miles?

I rode one of the original WR400's years ago, nice bike but was set up for a midget so it felt funny to me.

I Only had it at tar hollow once, it did fine on roads but it liked the open trails best. I had no issue with size. Here's some video from that ride.

I couldn't testify to it myself as I've never riden a WR450, but I hear the 426 is a lot more powerful but misses some of the top end speed.
