    I'm in. It'll be my first ride with you guys. I'll be on a DRZ 400 which I'm naive enough to believe can go anywhere anytime. I'll need to find a roll chart holder.

    I, like Bobby Ginger, experienced my first CADS or ADVrider associated event during the polar bear rally. I would recommend the roll chart holder... don't be the poor college kid who attempts to flip through a poorly taped together stack of printed pages rather then springing for the roll chart.

    You will be more than fine on the DRZ 400. I felt undersized on my 650, it felt unfair when we had yankees riding big adv bikes for the first time through the sand while people like Bobby and myself were riding familiar dirt on smaller bikes.

    This would be my first rally ride. Any riders buddy up? While i have years of riding experience. I have never used a roll chart or participated in a rally.

    Yes! With this group, there's mostly one group - A riders - and me. I'm the D group. There's nothing in between. :rofl

    I'm usually behind everyone else. I don't ride anywhere near as fast. I get left behind in the sand. You're welcome to ride along with me. There will be at least one other person riding with me this time. I made him swear in blood he wouldn't leave me behind. :lol3

    In my experience, little (or maybe a lot) of Tri-flow on the brakes helps keep the cautious ones moving along.....

    If anyone is looking for lodging in Cedar Key, it appears that the Beach Front Hotel has some single rooms available. They even offered me a (slightly) reduced rate since I was with the motorcycle group.

    The Island hotel appears to have some open doubles but are insisting on a two night minimum at this time. Perhaps that may change as we get closer to our target weekend.

    I noticed that the room I got was also 2 night minimum but she said somebody was leaving Saturday so I could have it for one night Saturday night. 2 night minimum must be somewhat standard there maybe.
