    It's spooling up to be rally season again! This will be my 5th entry into the Fundy Adventure Rally and it's always the best event I attend. We get riders from all over North America in attendance. It's held at Adair's Wilderness Lodge near Fundy National Park in Sussex, New Brunswick.

    What is the Fundy Adventure Rally?

    The Fundy Adventure Rally is a four-day event designed for the adventure motorcyclist to explore the remote Fundy Region of Southern New Brunswick, Canada hosted by Canada Moto Rallies and sponsored by BMW Motorrad Canada. The Rally features rider training, demo rides, workshops, seminars, moto film festival, self-guided tours, the Fundy Trail Parkway tour, a 250 km scavenger hunt ride, and culminates in a stellar 500 km multi-route GPS team ride for adventure riders of all levels.

    There's camping on site at Adair's included in the rally registration, the same goes for campers, trailers and RV's. There's shower facilities available for campers but there are also cottages and rooms available if you're the fancy type who needs a comfortable bed. Adair's also has a great restaurant on site, although meals are covered by your registration for Friday night to Sunday morning.

    Costs in Canadian:
    Earlybird Team Captain 4- Day Rally pass - $290.00 +$43.50 GST/HST

    Earlybird Team Rider - 4-day Rally pass $235.00 +$35.25 GST/HST

    Scavenger/Street Rider 4-day Rally pass $235.00 $35.25 GST/HST

    Spectator 4-day Rally pass $125.00 +CA$28.67 FEE & GST/HST

    BMW Motorrad Canada will also be hosting off road skills development courses throughout the days leading up the the rally proper. Prices from $99-149.

    From Wednesday to Friday evening, there are self guided tours, demo rides, presentations and riding to be had. In the past I've seen BMW, Honda, KTM and Husqvarna offer demo rides. And they're proper demo rides, offroad. For presentations in the past we've had Dakar riders Lawrence Hacking and Patrick Trahan talk about their experiences as well as RTW riders who present some memorable moments from their journeys.

    It's a wicked good time and I would honestly give up Christmas for FAR. The rally can be as tough and grueling as you want. There are three levels of participation (four of you include the scavenger hunt). Paved roads, dirt/fire roads and goat tracks. The rally starts at 6am Saturday morning and is 500kms or so in length over 12 hours and is monitored at HQ by the org via the Spot tracker you wear (included with the team captain registration) so you're always being looked at. Saturday night is for war stories, bonfires and beer. Sunday brunch is awards and kudos.

    Come one, come all!

    Team "Old Accountants" is signed up. Just put TKC70s on my GS that should get me through our June ride down to Deals Gap and back up the MABDR, but it will be 80's for this. Our first time to this riding up from Boston on the Wednesday. No goat trails but I think we are up for the rest. See you all there.

    Adam, as we discussed over coffee I'm going to put this on my calendar now and register soon. I'm not sure if I'll ride up or trailer the bike.

    sounds good Maybe we can collaborate via PM before buying tickets?

    If you're okay with being a part of a big-bike team, I think we could beg our buddies to join too. CSC + two GS bikes + Scott's KLR and we'd have 4. I wish my trailer supported two bikes.

    Um, guys, Scott and I will be somewhere in the western US on the TAT in mid-August. Otherwise, I'd be all in.

    Super bummed I'll miss this year. Probably going to be the year it DOESN'T rain on Saturday.

    Hi Guys
    Think this will 4th year riding up from down near the cape. Incredible event and people. Look forward to meeting you.
    Happy to fill you in more in person if you want to hook up for a ride this spring.
    Last year I purchased a trailer and tow up to Bar Harbor and ride from there. Might have room for a bike on the trailer.
    Don’t miss this-

    The Bad Larrys will be cruising B's and C's selectively depending on what Rally Master Eric has in store for us. If there is heavy rain the C's are impassable on big bikes.
