Nice! thats tasty

And check with MX1West, regarding tires and mousses. MEFO mousses will fit a wider range of tire sizes.

I'm going to run a Michelin/mousse front. Am running that on the Baja bike right now, have a michelin desert on the PD with a tube, and will put one with a mousse on the 450 for the Diabolico.

Beauty! Mine arrived last week as well. Drif10 is arriving for a small coffee-and-scones payment to help me mount up the HDB rallye kit, roadbook, ICO etc tomorrow. Will post a pic here. Really looking forward to this event!

Jimmy - are you still running your 640, or do you have a bigger bike now?

I still have the 640 and picked up a 950adv last fall. Going to mount the roadbook on the 640 for CRC pre-riding...just have to track down one of those road book brackets.

We've recieved quite a few emails inquiring what the terrain will be like.

The liaisons will be paved and gravel roads. The specials will be a mix of gravel roads and trails. I'd call the trails dual sport trails, not hard off road trails. I have ridden a 950 on almost all of them without too many issues. Many of the trails have water crossing, its the nature of the beast in this part of the world. We are doing our best to ensure they are all hard bottomed. Its hard to predict mother nature but in all likely hood they wont be deeper than 2 feet (front wheel depth).

This video depicts the terrain that will be used for one of the specials...

Thanks for trying to be careful about the water crossings. I know you guys typically like the water holes, but after needing to replace an engine this season, I personally don't get excited about water crossings at all... the Roaming Rally has cured me of that.

Agreed, a few will be required bit we are doing our best to limit it to just a few. Don't want those paper road books getting wet

The first day has a prologue followed by a special. The prologue is to start folks out in an order relative to their speed. This should help reduce passing during the first special (safer). Subsequent days starting orders are based on times from the previous days specials.

The prologue is on a closed oval sand track. Riders will do a dozen laps and will be timed. The concept isn't to go as fast as you can but rather to ride it at your trail speed so the starting order is relative. It would be a shame to DNF during the prologue





Most of the logistics are sorted out, things seem to be coming together nicely. Cya in August
