I think Kanook summed up Dutchmans best when he said "Why would you put that in a desert race"? Couldn't agree more...
Congrats on the fellow advrider's for completing the Rhino Rally. I was there as well (not racing, but taking care of my 3 boys all racing).

I'm impressed you took the 690 down Dutchman's. That's almost as crazy as Frog taking his 950 down it :)

I will admit I was surprised they sent the Novice's down it, but from what I heard, they had course workers staged up and down it in the tough areas.

Just spreading the word I'm selling a completely built FJ40 Land Cruiser and a 2004 Ski Doo Summit X / completely built.. Doing a little more clearing out of the old stuff and old toys.. I also have a pretty killer low lift height turbo diesel 2004 off road Toyota mini truck / fully restored with a Mercedes diesel in it that I'd consider selling too.

cheers, a

Utards...I'm looking to buy a dual sport. I would prefer something smaller like a 250 or 350 since I suck off road still and get tired of picking up my bike every 20 feet...ha ha ha. Let me know what you have. My budget is only $1500, I know it's not much, but I'm really tired of caging everywhere. Thanks!

It wasn't pretty- got passed by at least 50 people in there; many of them novices.

It was a fun ride anyways!
