    Can anybody tell me if this event is KTM1190R friendly? Wondering is it is more geared to smaller dualsports. I'm very interested in doing this but don't want to be out there on the wrong bike for the venue.

    I've got to attend. Romney isnt far from my family home. I use to go to motocross races in Romney in the 1970s.

    Scotty -
    Oddly enough, they don't mention their Rally in their own magazine.

    Signed up for this one too. Decided to just go for the 2-day Rally event only though. This will make my 5th rally for the year! Didn't know getting a new GS ADV back in December would have me going to some many fun events.

    Hi folks-
    I currently ride a CB500F and am trying to figure out which dual sport/ADV bike to ride. I'd love to come out and see what's going on- how out of place would I be if I just wanted to come and check it out?

    Not out of place at all. ALL BIKES WELCOME. Just scouted a route of back roads and just a little bit of gravel. Heavenly twisties which run through valleys with almost no traffic...about 160 miles.
