Hiking boots, yeah I dont own any of those anymore either.Guess I can always use my steel toed boot's from work.

You think novice would be the class,not begineer. Since I do have some dirt bike experince.
You have dirt bike experience, start Novice.
Begineer is for those who have no offroad bike experience.

Show up early, walk a few sections. See what the lines look like and then decide. Pretty sure you will find Novice just fine.

Thank you. Certainly thinking about giving it a try! So entry is $35 total.

Sorry for the stupid questions.

The Utahns and I think the New Messicans sign you up free for your first outing. Does CAT do that, Tim?
You'll need an AMA number -- AMRA needs that too, right?

Heck, if they don't offer you a free entry, ask for thegraydog scholarship!

And yes, an enduro helmet won't limit you much. People with recent chinplants wear them....

Amra does require a AMA membership and I have one.

What is thegraydog scholarship?

I'm 2 years in and I still wear a woods/MX helmet. I took the triple clamp hard to the helmet chin bar during a crash this year. I'd been thinking of getting a trials helmet, but that crash put an end to that line of thought for now.

Is this event happening for sure? I was planning on entering as my first trials event but on the CAT website it says permit pending. It also looks like maybe the website doesn't get updated too often. Just wanted to make sure since I will have to miss the AMRA race to make this one and it would be a bummer if I got there and it wasn't happening. Looks like a fun place to ride! Is this area open to riding when there is not an event?

Dbrown, we haven't heard any uncertainty about the event. Yep, the website isn't very active, and yep, sometimes the event happens before the permit arrives (!), but this one is a go.

I imagine that "legal" riding access is only during events, because it's USFS, but I have ridden there other times. The rockcrawler roads out to the south, um, you know, I haven't thought about it since TMR went down.

I see you need a spark arrestor. Not sure if a stock 02 gas gas 280 has one as it's not stamped on the side like my KTM.

They will rent you a screen and clamp there. Is it any different than using some metal screen material and clamping it on?

The usual test is whether it will stop a pencil. You can buy the screen at chainsaw shops sometimes. Dooley, known as Spanish Fly Racing makes a nice little unit that fits most gassers.

Several of us practiced there this last weekend. The weather was perfect. As long as you have an RV plate and AZ OHV sticker I don't believe there are any restrictions to riding there at non-event times. You will need some form of spark arrester on anything other than private land.

Thanks. Think I will go with the screen clamped on.

I would check out Spanish fly it was my bike. I plan on checking this one out and seeing how I like it.

Yes, we do. First ride with NMTA is free. As the old Honda ad says, "Come ride with us".

I might try that when (not if) I ride a CAT event. You could ask for the Brewtus scholarship at an NMTA event, but you will just be laughed at and charged double.
