    So would I be able to do this on my ninja 650 that I've modified into a dirtbike? I have no cut the frame in any way, I have only changed out the wheels/suspension and removed the front fairings.

    just call it a KLR650,...........If it's got 19 or 21" front wheel and has an upright enduro riding stance, you'll be fine in the Adventure class I would think. Might want to run it by an "official" though before hauling there.

    According to the rules no sportbikes but probably depends on what modifications it has. I know I would like to see it at the race. I say post a pic here and see what Anders says.

    Either way post a pic cause I am curious!

    I hope Sarah fixes Her bike soon, it would be nice to see the girl on girl battle on the stages! I guess I need to teach Her how to ride backwards though:lol3

    Is there any way to complete novice orientation training prior to the event, if we have not attended a RallyMoto before?

    The NCO training is usually scheduled the afternoon before the event. It's a good timing because then all the info is fresh in your head for race day.

    I've made more progress since then, it will be done in the next month.

    Ninja 650 already has an upright stance, it sports a 21" front tire, 18" rear, YZ450 forks. I'll end up with 11" of ground clearance. Should be more dirt oriented than an F650GS or similar bikes

    Looks like a dirt bike to me. Of course I am not in charge in any way but I say run it!

    I'd be more than happy to run it, but I wouldn't be too happy if I ride all the way there and am told I can run it. Hopefully the "judges" will weigh in.

    haha I wish it was. maybe that is a use for the CR500 motor in my garage.

    I saw a requirement that said all original cowling needed to be in place, and of course the no sport bike rule.
