Good and Bad

Highlights and fails (wipeouts) from the desert 100 on my 690 enduro.

I tried to include all the Adventure Class riders that I saw during the race including about 3 KTM 990s and a couple BMWs.

I found me at 10:45, looking for a rock to go hide behind.

Nice video! I hated to see that butter soft brake pedal ruin your race.

Agree completely. The arbitrary displacement number is unfortunate as it eliminates a huge segment of the Adv community, Ex: the KLR & F650GS Dakar

Adv class should also require rider to have panniers on their bike

It does not. The F650GS Dakar is....652cc. It's been noted repeatedly in this thread. And there was at least one F650GS based motorcycle that was planning to race and would have qualified...me on a Husqvarna TR650 with the venrable Rotax 652. And I don't remember seeing any F650GS model bikes on the Poker Run.

Agree on the KLR, but I'd disagree it's a "huge segment".

Hopefully, the organizers can find a better way to make the class work.

I just hope my 690 makes the cut for the class next year... that d100 is a tough race but it sure gets under your skin!

I was referring to the Adventure travel a.k.a. "Ride the World" Community not the Adv rides dirt bikes community.

There were a lot of KLR's on the Poker run. Saw one that learned the hard way why one should run a bash plate.

great that we are still talking about this after more than a week.

Myself and Alex from Konflict raced the 4hr Night Owl team race this weekend, We had a blast and finished 2nd after many issues, 2 flat rears, one out of gas and 1 lap rode in first gear. Lots of fun!

get your big bikes out there and make it happen!

No Doubt the rules will be defined a bit for next years 100, news will be coming soon

When that news comes out I'd appreciate it if you'd post something up on this thread so I/we don't miss it.

Thanks!

Results are posted.

This year's results are up.

Cory was the only name on both the '13 and '14 Adventure Class finishers list. Nobody has finished three years in a row. Tough game.

I didn't race in 2012, didn't know about it. I believe Darryl is the only one that's raced all three years.
