Thanks for the info! I already have several S12 front and rears so should be good to go.

A different kind of SandBlast Rally, but looks like fun. Think Daytona would allow this?

I got a lights and sirens ride to the Hospital last year. I wouldn't hesitate if my bike wasn't an unruly 460# dirt bike in the sand.

If I still had the fleet I'd loan you a little one. Sold the XT350 this spring.

I'll bring the 450, Jenna. Or, you can ride the Baja bike? :-). You choose. I'm easy.

Lights and sirens....I begged the guys at RWV to turn on the sirens, and they wouldn't. I kept telling them its not worth the ride unless we could blow through a light or a stop sign. Finally, I had to threaten to short pay the bill, and they relented. They cut them on as we were pulling into the hospital

Sandblast sand

Took this photo today of my rim still with sand from this year's rally. I do not wash my bikes....it's against my religion.

First timer

Well signed up for this race, second time going first time racing.
Can't wait for it, have a better bike this time. Didn't race last time due to having a KLR and thought I would not be competive. But now I know it is more then that...just going to have a good time.
