I have no affiliation but I know rawhyde guys followed.. some funny vids floating around
they run skills classes and offer rides around the US so they will have the english part down.
Myself, IF I could follow (and not race) I would buy a good used dual sport in the large town where it starts and sell it for pennys on the dollar at the finish town's local moto shop riding solo the first week... Im sure you would hook up with someone along the way and not be stuck with a group of people you dont want to be around. good luck and give us a story next winter to read!
