For many reasons, we won't be able to make this ride, but I'm curious as to the requirement for bikes > 600cc? I don't mean at all to start anything negative about the ride because I applaud what hard work RMAR puts in on these routes and rides! I'm just wondering.

I'm too noob and slow (ok there are two of the five reasons) for a ride like this but it sure looks like a blast for nmtrialsguy and I to try pieces of on our own sometime in our own backyard! But I have a CRF250L so its engine is too little--so even if I were a good, fast rider, I wouldn't be able to keep up with the big bikes, is that it?? I just would like to understand for the possibility of future rides (although I imagine this ride'll be full from repeat riders for the future ).

On the other hand, the 250L *is* over 300 lbs, so maybe there's a loophole?

cheers
