I just started up on the new season of the show I shoot, and as I suspected, I am completely slammed schedule wise. I wish I could attend, but it's not in the cards for me this time.

I'll be following along here though. All the best to those who can attend, and to Jimmy. Have fun guys (and gals)!

I'm out too. Traveling overseas the first week of May and don't return until Tuesday morning the 8th. Damn.

Sorry I'll miss it as I've got the bike and the required Nav set-up to participate. I know it's hard to "herd the cats" trying to meet everyone' schedule as well as your own availability Jimmy. Thanks for putting this on and I'll keep watching for the next iteration.

I want to do the "Fun" part on my big fat old bike. I just need to figure out if I can take the time away from work.

I really need some dirt again. IT has been way too long.

Hi Neil, you should come join us for the Roaming rally or come up to my place for mine Labour Day. Not much navigation but still entertaining.

Sounds cool but I will be in South Africa in early May. I'm doing the Amageza rally on the 29-30 April.

A lil birdie told me there might be something happening up near Toronto in June or July...

Fun for you, there is another one day event that's navigation, I'm looking at it but I don't know if it's in the cards. Besides, teams fill up fast and I'm not sure I could get on one?

Committed. FLight, hotel rental car. Worst case, I'll be in Vegas for three days> Whats the worst that could happen?


Just throw me some tulips to the start line. I'll bring coffee!

Wow! Great idea Jimmy! I wish I could attend. Seriously would consider attending if you do this again latter this year or next year. Gotta finish the XRR duallyism first... :)

I've been smelling hot gear oil and finally located the culprit. The input seal on the Adventure is leaking.
This one was installed back at 97,000 miles. Now, at 181,000 it's time for another. I'll be checking the bearings as long as I'm there.
This means the money I was going to use to buy tires goes to buy transmission parts. Maybe a clutch as long as I'm in there as it is the same age as the seal.
Oh, well another time.

Just thought I'd throw it out here that I have a full MECA Systems rally kit with only 10 days of riding and no racing on it from my 525 if anyone is looking to build up a Dakar style rally bike, obviously it won't go for the Dakar but a 525 or 530 is doable for any other rally out there. PM me if you want more info.
