    She's going to live with a BMW sponsored racer, who raced in the Dakar (back when it actually was to Dakar!)

    Bring extra socks to the Roaming Rally Clasaic next weekend. There's some water out there! Was out Pre-riding the route today. Your feet are guaranteed to get wet! And if you've never ridden down a river before, you'll get your chance Friday!

    GPS file and info will be mailed out on Tuesday, to everyone who registered for the Roaming Rally Classic next weekend. We still have a few trails left to pre run today and tomorrow before we are comfortable saying the route should be doable. Is it too early to start looking at the weather forecast? It appears as if we might get a bit of everything, sun and rain, hot and cold. Pack accordingly. The bugs have only just begun to surface, mosquitos and black flies will hopefully not be a big issue (fingers crossed). A reminder for the bikes, we will carry one small bag per bike in our truck. Small means small...like a small gym bag not a duffle bag. Limited space available. Safe travels to everyone, looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.

    Lots of dust on Saturday, especially if we don't get any rain. Bring goggles if you have them!

    Yes,,,, if you ride an f800 check your shock bolt and front wheel bearings, don't push a water wave on your 1200 GS, watch for fight turns on gravel that sneak up on you and oh yeah bring a credit card for a transport truck home!!!!

    Thanks James for all your work. Great ride and super nice folks on the ride and accommodations.
