    Would it be worth attempting the class on a DR650 or is that pushing it? I don't have a smaller bike at the moment but would like to do some single track/enduring training sometime. But...I don't want to bring a knife to a gun fight, so to speak.

    You would be fine on the 650 for the Saturday Basic Enduro Skills class. You will get to ride some single track as well as bump over some small logs and a few rocks. As well as go thorugh a "timed" section :freaky

    We have made some changes to the course. We added a "matrix" and some other fun stuff.

    We will be making more changes to the course over the winter as well.

    I will be around Friday. SMCC has "Primitive" camping which is just places to set up a tent....or camper. I can through you an extension cord from my house if needed. There is no water hookeup.....my house is avaialble for facilities....there is a fire pit up on the EnduroCross course and we will probubly have that going Friday night.

    There is a Winery 1 mile down the road...and a Tavern 2 miles away. Just pay the day of the event.

    Just sent an email, is there a requirement for gear for the basic class?
    I assume helmet/gloves/boots but what about pants, jacket, armor, etc?
    I just started getting into the sport and I have a helmet, gloves, and boots but nothing else.

    how comfortable are you with falling over and hitting your elbows/knees/chest/back on something without any protection?

    having done the course last year, you will fall over since your starting out in dirtbike riding. the course isn't that difficult for someone who has riding skills but for someone who is starting out, its a lot to take in.

    my advise is go out to your local bike shop and pickup some gear. face it, your going to fall over and your going to want to get back up and continue the day without getting hurt (well lessening the chances at least).
