    Has anyone else seen that the Okie Sprint races have a big bike class? (Or whatever 3 or more people show up with, looks like)

    I can't imagine having to drag my Tiger out of the trees as much as I do my WR.

    Shortened race length, reduced entry fee, no points to chase. We're also allowing scooters, groms, and trials bikes! The idea is for people to come out and have FUN on bikes not intended to be raced. If Mike Lafferty can finish 127th overall at a national enduro on an out of the box KTM790, the average person can make it around a 3 mile long course 4 times... You don't need 8 national enduro championships and 3 ISDE gold medals to have fun on a big bike that was never intended to race in the woods!

    It sounds fun, I'd love to try it when I'm 100% again. I can see it being an "Adventure", from a certain point of view.

    Racing is the best riding imo.

    You follow arrows, so there is no discussion or question of where to go.

    There’s a sweep crew, so you don’t have to worry about dragging yours or a buddies bike or body out of the woods.

    Everyone is going the same direction. Just think of other riders as brightly colored trees and don’t hit them.

    You know going into it exactly how far it is back to the truck.

    I'm kinda on the other side. Racing mountain bikes eventually sucked the fun out of riding them and it took a while to get interested again.
    So while I might try a moto race or two, I doubt I'll ever be a regular.

    Meh, getting lost is part of the adventure. Really, since the gps there really isn't a reason to be "lost" anymore. Go explore, then use the gps to find your way home.

    What is this "truck" of which you speak?

    You'll never get a view like this chasing people around a 3 mile course.

    To be fair though, that was around the time cycling became the new golf and middle aged amatuer racers started taking shit way too seriously.
    There seems to be much less anxiety and desperation wrapped up in off-road motocycles.

    Sounds like a perfect class for the best bike in the world a.k.a. DR650

    Maybe a metal gas tank class?

    Or would that be only Suzukis?

    I don’t believe it, he’s in at least 3rd gear.
