OK, now you guys/galls know why my post count is so low!
Here is another fun event, if anyone is interested.

This event is one of my babies. Here are some photos from pre-running previous years to help get you excited.
Is it done snowing yet?
You're cruel. Looks like some good riding.
Looking forward to going again this year. Last year was my first and I was a little worried that it was going to be mostly slow cruising on gravel roads (nothing wrong with that, I was just looking to tear up some trails) but their was a good mix of riders, bikes, and riding styles.
I will be there, sorting out my newly built XT350 before our WABDR trip in mid July.

That's a nice saw you got there Iain!
Is there a creek or lake within walking distance of the campground (if it's in the same place as last year)? If my wife and little ones come, they'll need a water hole to play in while I ride.
I'm trying to make this work this year!!!!!!
The Wenatchee River is about 1 mile from the camp area but it is not really a kid friendly river. 6 miles to the north of camp is Lake Wenatchee State Park and it is good to go for families.
We've been to WSP, and Naches Creek (that right? the one just outside the State park), I may take the RV there, then "commute".
For those of you who have attended this event, do you feel that Vstroms would have been capable for some of the routes that have been used in the past?
Does anybody know when registration starts. ??.

Yes, the STroms will work, but with at least a K60 or knobbier. You will also need a skid plate and don't be afraid to get it banged a time or so. Otherwise, there are a good selection of routes.
Great spot! I love it over there.
The routes were set up numbered 1 through 10. Number 1 was mostly pavement and number 10 was a long fairly challenging ride. If it rains and gets muddy good tires and some experience will be needed, but if it stays dry routes 1 through 5 were progressively more challenging but all very doable on a V-strom. Two years ago someone did just fine on his old Harley sportster with knobby tires.
Thank you for the information it is very helpful. Four of us will be attending and looking forward to the rally.
