Registered and paid up.

We have the option of riding some of the new KTM 250R FreeRide bikes for the race.

I'm not sure I'd want to do that without getting some seat time on one before the race week. Trying to figure a way out to get our hands on a few here in the USA.

Play with the flights and booking this early for the flights into Sibiu may not be the best on price. And from the traffic and seeing the shuttles, I'd fly in there.

Also connecting with Euro riders from bigger cities may present the opportunity to hitch a ride in with them. Especially if you bring them gear that we can get way cheaper over here!

Good luck, practice hills and ruts.

We flew Calgary, London, Frankfurt to Sibiu on flight reward points($600 cdn). The airport in Sibiu is fast and small which could save some precious time.

My wife said you might consider flying into Cluj Napoca and then ground transport to Sibiu from there.

My brother is gonna race RBR 2014. Im trying to ride a week before the race and help him out as a mechanic during race-week.

We can get to Sibiu by car. Its still about a 22h drive from where we live in Germany.

Driving in Romania is allright, although the roads suck (railroad crossings are extreme) and you probably only manage 50-60km in an hour.

I visited Sibu, not for the race but to see friends and flew to Budapest and took a van theere. It was long like eight hours, but it was almost $600 difference in airfare when I went and I was cheap

Vancouver- Munich - Sibiu worked awesome for us. Bucharest is a long drive.
From what I have seen the freerides would be great in the prologue,but you want a 300 for the main event days.
And if finances and time permit,hook up with one of the enduro tours before hand,well worth it for knowing the terrain and getting to really see the sights

I have to add my vote for trying to fly into Sibiu. We ended up having to go to Bucharest at the last minute and rent a car from there. It added a lot to the trip. It is a minimum 4 hour drive, easily more with traffic.

We did find a very good airport hotel, RIN Airport, for 39 euro. Pretty good considering the first place we checked was 150 euro. Nothing like having to drive around looking for a hotel in the middle of the night, in the rain, after flying 15 hours.....

If you do not have someone coming along who plans to chase for you, you literally do not need a car. It is a 10 minute cab ride from the Sibiu airport to the hotel/paddock. Nearly everything is walking distance from there. It is also very easy to catch a cab around the city area.

But as the race grows, they are having to use more outlying hotels also, ours was about 3/4 of a mile from the Paddock this year. We still walked most of the time, easier than trying to find a parking space.

As for bikes, I just can't imagine anything being better than a 300.

Was there this summer. Went on a 2 day trip on 350 EXCs on the same grounds where they organize RBR. It was a lot of fun and very intense! The scenery is amazing and you have to be in top physical condition.

We went with the guys from Enduro Guided Tours http://enduroguidedtours.com/. Amazing guys. Emil, the owner, was our guide for the entire trip. Great guy, I highly recommend them.

I recommend flying directly into Sibiu from Germany, it will save you a lot of hassle.

Yeah, Johnny would say Honda SUX too. Only a DR350 So-Sucky, I mean Suzuki would make the cut in his book!

God love you Johnny!!!!!
