Somehow blazing through the trees at high speeds on dirt roads doesn't strike me as healthy.
All good points for those in the southwest. Unfortunately, I however do not live near it. 6+ hour one way drives aren't easy for me to make. I don't really see how RallyMoto is any more or less dangerous than desert riding. All are good forms of motorsport. Wish I could play in more of them.
