    Nice little video there. As someone who doesn't race...if you whistle are people just supposed to give me... doesn't seem like racing then just who ever has the most power on the straights? Genuine question as I honestly have never raced or watched a proper race. Looks like lots of fun though!

    You can holler and see if it works. This was our first time doing this and they started us on the last row and you have a lot of traffic in the back rows to deal with. If you're racing competitively in the A, B, or C class you can guarantee hollering won't do much. But a lot of times you're racing amongst riders in several different classes. If you catch someone you are obviously faster and just need to get around them by whatever means. If someone catches me that fast, I know they are faster. In the big serious racing series like the GNCC or SETRA those AA an A guys will pass you like you're a tree and they aren't playing around. It's just one more aspect of Hare Scrambles knowing who's in your class and if you want to make them work for it. Some guys see someone on their rear tire out of nowhere and want to race all of the sudden.

    Kick ass racing. What class were you in? I'm wanting to get back to racing next year MX & HS. 40+ class. I tried a SE a couple of years before I bought my ADV. I love riding my 950 on the fire roads here. Getting ready to gear it down a bit more. 16/50
    Curious what gearing you're running? Sounds like you have Akra's?
    If you're ever in Central VA look me up. We'll tear-up some fire roads

    I would be shitting my pants if I was doing a woods race and I heard that big-ass twin come up behind me that fast. I also felt a little sorry for all the guys you passed on the straights and on the MX track, that face full of roost probably hurt!

    :clap. That was phenomenal. I have a new respect for what that bike is capable of. I am sure it can't hurt that you were riding the wheels off of it. Great job:clap

    Oh yea and thank you. Now I have another bike I would like to have:wink:

    It was a first time for us trying this and at sign up I said "ADV class" and said we don't have an ADV class. I told him that we had already buzzed around and had the organizer/owner of Highland Park KTM World aware and he was all for it. So we had two 950R's and an HP2. The HP2 won, but both the other twins were ripping and making spectators smile along the way. I only survived a lap before my flat. I was running FMF's without SA's and the CPR intake. Still not as loud as a piped 450 though. Stock gearing and I think most prefer that. Thanks for the ride offer, same to you in North, GA.

    Hope I answered all ?'s. I posted in OC too for the LC8 fans:clap
