Considering that the school fields are also used for the Duetchesfest weekend, I think if you are mellow, it shouldn't be a problem.

I wish I could get down there during the weekend of the 100, but I most likely will be running around with my head cut-off solving problems that arise.

Jeff
I've never ridden anything quite as challenging as my Big Orange 990 Adventure in this kind of terrain, so I'm planning on the Saturday Adv Poker Run and a steep learning curve. Should my bike and I survive Saturday and find a spare pair of balls lying around in the Odessa dirt, I may sign up for the race as well... I'm planning on riding in on Friday and tent\tarping it on the School field - Hope to meet some of you there! PM me if you'd like to meet up in Covington or North Bend in the AM for the ride over.

PS - My TKC 80 rear tire is at around 40% tread... Is this likely to be enough for a conservative n00b?

I was in the same situation with a TKC 80 and perhaps 30% tread, but less far to travel. I reasoned if I was only doing the Poker run I *might* be able to make it. But even the poker run sees some some gnarly rocks and terrain.

You think your tire can do 400+ road miles, 50-100 off-road in a Poker thing, ....then you decide you love it so much you can do a race on it as well? I think this video clinched it for me as newbie to opt for a fresh set of tires.

You'll be amazed what your bike will do with a new set of real off road tires. Ride to the event and find a vendor to mount a set of new dirt bike tires.

I'd recommend a new tire. You're going to have to get one after the event anyway, might as well do it now and enjoy the ride.

Agreed! There is no way I would ride this event with a shagged set of tires.

This is timing! Just got done mounting a new Kenda Trackmaster on the F8GS!! Looks awesome, much better than the slightly worn Scorpion Rally Hoping for a matching front when I get there

For those on the fence come see me Friday, check out what we have to offer, consider our class, we are focusing on what it will take to finish the race, not looking to create a podium type rider, just someone who wants to find their own personnel limits without the pain usually associated with these types of discoveries.

I didn't send the Camel Tank beforehand so I'll bring it with me. Who do I need to give it to once I'm on site?
