    I'll be there Wednesday evening through Sunday. I will have a small RV. If anyone is interested, I can provide coffee each morning before the stage. Please chime in here or PM me so I can get an idea of how much to bring. I will also try to set-up a simple charging station outside the RV for those of you tent camping and in need of some way to charge devices in camp.

    No more trellis frame
    Looks smaller
    New Fairing
    Large oil Cooler
    Large automotive style oil filter
    Strange aerodynamic winglets on the back of the front fender
    skinnier swing arms
    the reduced fuel range requirements are really helping slim these bikes down.

    What else can you spot?

    [​IMG] Mason Klein wins stage 1 in RALLY2 category.

    A 19 years old clever and fast road book rookie with the Dakar Rally in mind. He’s the youngest participant in the Bikes category.

    It is doing what it is supposed to. I have 3 more weeks before my next appt. hopefully will be starting to put weight on soon after that. It is nice not having a cast because they put that rod in my leg. SoCal rally is looking awesome. I remember some of the places in your pics from the last time. Keep on posting those teasers. Everyone who is going is in for a treat.

    Fricking awesome seeing that Mason won the first stage in Rally2 and is leading in his overall after last night. Can’t wait to see how he does tonight. And his brother Carter won his race in CA too. Great job to both Klein brothers!

    Mason Does it again!

    SS-2, Position 1 in his class

    [​IMG]

    Just to put it in perspective: Mason came in first in the Rally 2 class with a time of 3:46:55.

    Brabec, Sunderland and Howes came in 7,8 and 9 in the Rally GP class with 3:46:20, 3:46:35 & 3:47:32

    Mason wrote me that they have a slightly different route that the Rally Pro riders for some sections so the times can’t be compared directly. Not that he isn’t fast as hell. He was happy to have a chance to do some navigating without tracks ahead of him.

    Good info, didn't know that. Thanx.

    Are you sure the Rally GP and the Rally 2 have different courses?

    I know the Enduro Cup class does since they have shorter fuel range requirements so the bikes can run OEM tanks.

    He wrote me that he had a different route for some of the day so he had a chance to navigate.
