    Just come across this , it sounds bloody awesome. I would love to do this but I'll be on my DR650 in France in September with PhilinFrance, another donkey rider.

    I hope you all have a great time and I'll be looking forward to the photos. Superb effort by BergDonk to make it all the way from Aussie :clap

    Hmm... Maybe you and @PHILinFRANCE should consider joining us in Moab instead...?

    That's what I was thinking too.

    Not that I'm complaining about the new faces but I would really would love to see more regulars of the DR650 thread sign up!

    JWife has been telling me to go ahead and head out (she's heading to Scotland the latter half of the month so it might be a balance thing) and there's a fair amount of prep to do, and lining up of variables - so on the fence yet but I may just hold my breath and jump anyway. Is there a cutoff date set yet?

    Yes. The hardline cut-off date is September 8th. If you don't chime in by then, it's too late. :lol3

    I'd love to attend this event this year, but just not enough vacation days with other scheduled things going on.

    But when I retire in 2.5 years, I'm already planning on attending the 4th annual rally! :clap

    Just returned from five glorious days in Utah riding in the 2nd Annual 3 Step Hideway Desert Rendezvous. The weather was perfect, the food was fantastic, and the trails and scenery were awesome. There were over 30 riders from all over the country.

    I am currently prepping my bike for the upcoming 3 Step Hideaway DR650 Rally.
    If you haven't made plans, there is still time to get involved. There are plenty of great trails and areas to ride that are perfect for the DR650. Hope to see you there.

    Ride safe,

    Yup. Got the lithium battery for camping - and a converter with a deep cell 12 V extra battery just in case.
