RallyWV terrain/roads are very familiar to me, have spent a lot of time in the area on larger bikes. Would Sandblast be a good intro to RallyMoto or should I wait for RallyWV? Weapon of choice would be a 2009 KTM 530EXC.
There will probably be 3 or 4 other riders from Ohio going down for SandBlast. I did Sandblast as my first Rally last year and my first time riding sand roads. I highly reccomend it.
I did Rally WV and would have done Black River if it didn't conflict with other plans I'd made.
The 530 will be a great bike for this ride too.
