By "Finisher" they must mean jettison the Ironman loop after 12 miles, ride the B loop on the dual sport side, and then "finish" strong at the brewery.

It was great meeting you, Kevin, and all the other ADV'ers that I camped with. Thanks to the StumpJumpers and the PSSOR crew as well. I had a great time and look forward to hanging out again next year.
You earned it with the quickest flat repair of the day, I think :-)

As promised here is my highlight/fail video. Link here in case embed doesn't work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC8G...8&noredirect=1

Watching back on the video it's pretty obvious to me that I got both intimidated at worn out from crashing and dropping the bike so many times and it was just a slow and hot inevitable end. I have lots to practice and learn before next year!

It's kind of funny but the poker derby trophy is about a foot taller than the ADV class one and no, I didn't actually have room for them. Matt and I rented the travel trailer in Spokane so my x-cab short box truck was crammed with the 2 of us, 2 bikes, 2 sets of riding gear, BBQ, tools etc from there home. Mike and Tyler brought them back in the cargo van...I still don't have them!



A huge thanks to Darryl for making this ADV class happen. I've had a riot the past 2 years

Thanks Riki, that looks like a blast. My kind of 9x0 riding. I may try to make the trek over next year.

Taking all the hardware back to Canada, Congratulations!
Now you have a target on your back
It was great to see you and everyone else out there.
The drama after the finish was a bit of bad karma for the poser. Glad we got that all squared away and the rightful winner took the goods home.

I thought about that on the way home, If the rule read 651cc and the bike had to be plated everywhere the bike was originally sold that would take care of allowing the KLR, XRL to race and omit the XRR

Thanks to SOP for getting this photo for me. I was having a blast before the road of shame.

I wouldn't expect any less! My goal last year was to ride clean and finish. My goal this year was simply to ride better and faster than I did last year. Next year I'll be working to ride better than this year. As it turns out, my efforts this year were enough for a 1st place finish. It would be more fulfilling if 9 out of 16 hadn't DNF'd. It would mean more if my friend and mentor Pat Horan (on the R100 P/D) hadn't had several mechanical issues and ran out of fuel before finishing. Regardless, I accepted my 4ft trophy, cash, prizes with a big ass smile on my face. None of this will matter next year, all will be reset

Unfortunate for sure, it definitely soured my mood for a bit. I've seen classes at other races that specifically name bikes that are exceptions to the rules. Example, "150cc and under, CRF150R excluded." I believe there is a popular adv bike that is 644cc (don't recall what model).
You could do something like:
"ADV class is defined as a factory street legal bike with a factory displacement of 6XXcc. XR650R and blah blah blah excluded. Exceptions made for blah blah blah".

I think it would be really good to get KLRs involved. It makes much more sense to beat a $4000 bike through the desert than a $15k-20k BMW or KTM. I bet the class would double the first year you included the KLR.

Alternatively, the class could be set by weight, with a weigh-in photo shoot like a boxing match. It could even be split into light heavyweight and heavyweight classes (300 - 425 lb & 425+ lb?) A license plate is a requirement for anything calling itself an adventure bike.

The 65Xcc rule is right at a funny place that culls some big thumpers but admits others, even though the level of effort and competitiveness for the race are comparible. The KTM 690 (actual 654 or 690) is in. The 644cc XRL and 649cc XRR are out. The KTM 640 (actual 625) is out. The Husky TE 610/630 is out.

Then there are the others, less factory-suitable thumpers for racing but I've seen some modded to be competitive. Suzuki DR is out but DR Big is in, the KLR may be in (651cc), and the BMW F650 may be in (652cc).

I'm just thinking out loud. I'm just happy some of you gladiators are up for the game. There's nothing like the sound of a big twin roaring past at full boogie. Respect!

Yeah, what drama happened at the end? We didn't see the finish/awards.

Not that I like drama, but I'm curious now.
