you're not a n00b anymore!
Pete, Sssh... its my cover/excuse
Can anyone chime in with a slight overview of each days ride?
SATURDAY OVERVIEW= FUN
SUNDAY OVERVIEW = MORE FUN (but hungover)
Hey: I'll update and answer questions soon, I'm really busy.
think it's still to late to submit my entry form?
wasn't sure i could get the time off until now
will the BMW nav 2 unit work??
Hey: we're getting close to full, FYI this year the limit is 125, we have close to 100 riders so far.
Get those entrys in if you want to attend, this may be the best PB300 so far.
For the newbees check out the intro to the PB300 class, we still have a few spots open.
Over the week end I'll post an update on everything else.
My long island group is in. Can't wit to ride the pine barrens legally. No such luck here on long island.
Check sent, hopefully it's in time.
Hey: Here's some answers and new info.
First a word from our sponsor, call for tires, gear and parts.
The Hotel, the Hammonton Howard Johnsons 609 561 5700 still has rooms left, mention the PB300, there's only a hand full,
so hurry if you want to stay at the Hotel. Thats where the fun is.
There's a chance this guy may attend,
He's a "friend" of ours and a blast to ride with, his "dirt stoppies" are nuts!
I'm still waiting for the final approval of the routes, most of the route was approved, but I can't finish the
GPS route till I have everything.
What I can say about the route is this, Saturday is going to be a longer day than before, appx 200 miles,
there are some new sections, and Rocky's Big Bike Enduro section is back. There are go arounds for the
enduro stuff, and bail out spots for those running late.
Sunday is appx 125 miles and is usually an easier day.
The Forest is dry for this time of year, it never even froze over during the winter, so the sand will be looser
than the two 2011 PB300's. Over the years we've cut out alot of the long, deep, sand roads, but you can't
avoid them completly. Good tires help to get you thru, get 90% dirt 10% street tires if possible.
Make sure your bike is preped and ready for a long ride.
We have support trucks along the route with tools, air and first aid, we have EMT's on the crew, and sweep riders to help out.
We try to make this event as safe and fun as possible, and use the crew resources for "real" emergency's, we perfer not to
have to rescue a machine broken due to lack of maintenance.
In the past, we've had to rescue machines in the woods with broken chains, wheel bearings, and cables, that quite frankly, should have been replaced before the event. :eek1 One time a guys bike wouldn't start in the parking lot, they pushed started him and he started the ride, guess who we had to rescue shortly after.
The entry's are coming in and is almost full, I expect it to be sold out by next week, there's still time and we don't want to turn anyone
away, so make up your mind, and get your machine ready for a "vacation on a dirt bike".
I'll send out a test email this weekend to those signed up.
Jack, Cross Country Cycle and the PB300 crew.
Can anyone recommend knobbies for my 2009 KLX 250? It has Dunlop 605,s , which I'm told are not great. Bike is new to me so never rode it off road yet. Also, is full motocross type riding gear the ticket here or what. Chest protectors, boots? Thanks for any help
Hey: Just got the Pinelands Commission permit.
Yeee ha, there still a few more to go, but thats the big one.
Dunlop D606 is a popular DOT knobby tire, as is the Michelin T63 and the Pirelli MT21. All of those will work fine for general dirt riding and easy pavement use, but they are on the knobbier end of the dual-sport tires spectrum.
I run AC10s (DOT legal, barely) on my 2T and a Scorpion Pro FIM (also barely DOT) on my TE, but I would not use either of these for extended pavement use. Hook up well though!
In the future, I am only going to run non-DOT tires on the 2T.
for dual sport / woods riding a pressure suit / ballistic jersey is better than chest protector.
chest protecter is great on motocross track where all you have to worry about is getting dirt roosted in your chest. in the woods it is more about bouncing off trees and tree branches. the Rockgardn flak jacket above is the most comfortable ive worn over the years. you def should have armor on knees, shoulders, forearms.
the moose M1 is about the smallest and most comfortable knee armor.
those 2 pieces cover all. you will want a camelbak type hydration pack. get the 2 liter.
make sure your brake lights are working....
I saw a few struggling to make it thru inspection, untill they bribed inspector with cold ones
just bring him a few PBRs - he likes the cheap beer.
if you bring beer, bring good beer
Don't even try it on those stock tires. you will hate yourself for it. I rode twice on stock 605's and it sucked.
TrackmasterII's work well in South Jersey Dual Sports, and they are real cheap.
They like the sand and do pretty good on the road.
trackmasters on the rear are good in the pine barrens. TM fronts wash out when the coung gets tough put a perrelli on the front if your a baddass
Scorpion or XCMH????
If i get the wrong one can i still be a bad ass ????
