same for bikes...?
he lays it out here
yeah, thanks, I've been keeping up. Just pushing Scott a little.
my 690 at wide open throttle carrying about 22 litres of fuel will get just over 300km of range. more normal throttle positions yield plenty of distance...but I am getting the feeling that a 690 will be a "big bike" for this event
Power through the dunes!!!
This has my interest, haven't had to use a compass to navigate since the Boy Scouts! Guess I better get some tanks for the new to me Husabergna and figure out how to mount all the crap!
As far as Bivouac goes,..........will one be able to make it to there with a 40' class A RV with trailer?
leave that crap at home, experience the real deal and sleep in a gritty tent!
Don't be hating, I saw you travelling the USA with a "camper" 2 months ago
I might let you sleep in the AC on the floor if you're nice! But then the trailer has bunks for a couple and 2 individuals so we could sleep like 7-8 in comfort
Maybe I missed it but is there a fee schedule yet? Is it gonna be around the $1800 mark?
Entry fees have not been finalized yet, but I expect them to be in that ballpark.
Desierto de Altar ... vaminos
Sure would be nice to know what the entry cost are for ALL classes??????????
I'm sure they will let us know in good time.
I would guess it to be around $1500.00 to $2000.00
Just trying find out if there will be an entry fee for support vehicles plus mechanics.
I've had to pay for that sort of stuff in the African rallies
I don't think so !!!
may be just Crew Food tickets to eat with everyone.
Really looking forward to this!
Its time to pick the bike that will be subjected to this torture, and to start sorting out setup. Without giving away anything more than we would generally know before any rally, could you let us know:
1. We've heard about the dunes, but will there be much mileage on fast tracks? How about pavement or road liaisons? (gearing and tires question)
2. Should relative slowpokes like me plan on riding in the dark much? (lighting question)
Details are still not final, but at the moment it looks like this:
Yes, a decent amount of non-dunes fast tracks, including some flat out top gear.
Very little pavement or liaison, probably only at beginning of first stage and end of last stage. Zero mid-stage liaison or pavement.
Paddle tires not allowed, DOT tires required, per FIM rally rules.
Bring your own whoops and rocks, because we haven't found any yet!
I don't expect any dark riding, unless you have serious problems on stage.
As long as I can do it on < or = to 20 l (5 gal) I am good. Now I just have to sell my wife that my truck and camper will not be stolen and me shot by a Mexican drug gang. Apparently she lived in Huston for too long : ( If anyone has ideas please PM me.
