Of all people who know Aaron best, I have to say, I didn't see that as smart ass at all.
Are you gonna be there this year?
Great. Nowwww you tell me.
crankshaft, you met mouse mccoy at baja? that's badass!
Do I have to run DOT tires? Will Michelin S12's be ok? I don't have to have turn signals in my home state, do I have to have them for Sandblast?
I just plated my CR500 and looking forward to running this race!!! It'll smoke everything!!!
I see what you did there...
I was also wondering what kind of surface conditions rock or pavement :huh
I'm racing this then!
I've entered this beast
He and Greg Tracy loaned be $120 so I could hire some Mexican dudes to haul me to the next town. He also said..." You had your Baja moment" I sure as hell did If you're at SB, look me up and I'll tell you the whole story, its a good one.
Truth be told, RM is pretty straight forward, try organizing to race in Baja having never been there or the Alcan 5000 rally. I've done both and I can tell you that RM is sooooo simple. The first thing I did for Baja was download the rules and read them, then I studied the maps.
It's all good! I just hate when people pray on noobies and I could've been out of line, but I just had no idea what to expect and I still can't open that link for what ever reason. Noobies to forums does not mean noobies to riding. So, thanks for all the input. It's pretty clear that it would and will be something that the average bear could do. I plan on spreading the word to my friends who also love riding the local forest roads.
I have a question, the Green/OK and the Red Cross signs. I can't find in the regulation where you are suppose to display them when you need to. I have actually read all three regulation guides .
That's a carry over reg from the car side as is the deployable triangle. Ideally if you're stopped on the side of the road and not making forward progress you are to display your triangle in order to warn on-coming competitors and then hold up the "OK" or "red cross" to communicate whether you are in need of medical assistance or the on-coming competitor can proceed without having to actually stop and try to communicate or assess the situation while trying to navigate. I would think a thumbs up would tell me all I need to know but that's my take!
The key word is making forward progress and since bikes don't have co-drivers both of these things are more of a paperweight then anything else. If you're in need of medical assistance you may not be able to get to your sign or be able to display it where as a co-driver/driver could while the other is trapped under/in a car but it's the regs so you carry it. You can make your own out of a sheet of paper and a marker for the scrutineering.
Same with with the triangle, if you're making forward progress and NOT in a very dangerous corner, chances are you'll waste a lot of time trying to display the triangle and then have to go back to retrieve it,.....but never travel backwards on the stage on your bike,.....ever if you're sane enough to prevent it
Anders also covers all of that in the NCO class.
How is that I don't have an option to pay entry fee, it's suppose to be in NRS Database > Register tab, right?
Are you logging in to your account? Yes, it should be under the register tab.
I am not showing the option for paying entry fee yet either. The site must not be updated yet from the reserved entry yet.
Something is wonky anyway.... I did a reserve entry and I can see the Early Entry when I go to the Register tab. But the prices for the Early entries seem to be mixed up....RM Early Basic says $260 and the Deluxe is $220.
I've been having issues too!
I'll try again later.
