Well, I can't help with that. But to see if any of the promoting I did last year is actually paying off, we have a few schools scheduled previous to this event so you can head out to the Noob Rally a better and safer rider. Get it in two days, not 10 minutes!

Our winter/spring schedule should be on my web site very soon,

thanks jimmy for chiming in and for being supportive. hope to see you at the event.

fellow noobs and intermediate riders - i post pictures of me on the ground to remind everyone that we are all vulnerable. take jimmy's class and you'll be surprised how good of a rider you can be and you get to keep the rubber side down.

the best xmas, birthday or wedding gift to one self is a "riding lesson". skip the farkles for now, and get yourself a lifetime gift.

the paybacks:
1. less broken mirrors, levers, pedals, and bike parts to replace. your bike will stay shiny......
2. less likely going to the er.
3. gain the skills and you become more confident. riding will be more fun and safe.
4. the skills or at least the principles you learn will remain with you forever.
5. it will open up your potentials.
6. learning is a continuous process; none of us here already know it all.

we know, it's not cheap, but look at the benefits.

I'm a Dual-sport and DV n00b - really looking forward to this after hearing all the stories.

I will also likely donate some software - will coordinate with the other Adobe guys.

folks, death valley is full of sand, but there are routes that are enjoyable with only little or just portions. the terrain transforms to a different landscape after a big rain storm.

we will have different ride groups and you join the skill level you fit it. we are here to make it fun and safe for everyone. no guarantee, but the group will work as a team. strength in numbers.

Joel

Please add my friend Ron to the in list. He'll be staying in my RV. He rides some kind of Suzuki DS.

Don't know if he'll go for the meals yet, probably depends what they cost. He's a cheap bastige ....

Thanks

Spring in Death Valley sounds like the place for me. Count me IN.

Ladybug0048/Sherry and a friend, I will pickup-truck camping with a couple of tents. I don't know about the food, may I decide later? I'll be there Sunday 3/24/12 and leaving Sunday morning 3/31/12.

I will be riding the Superbug (DR200)


The Superbug has sand experience.


LittleWan tells me to "Make Sand My Favorite", we'll see how that works I'm not a noob but I ride like one so take it easy on me.

I hope to find some cool relics and spring desert flowers. If that fails I know the stars at night are awesome and there are no sasquatch in Death Valley.

Maybe you can make it to the Long Beach M/C show so we can meet you ?

It's a good place to see what is available for Dual Sporting...
It'd be great to meet at the LB show, but I have a friend's 60th birthday party that weekend that goes to about 1 a.m. I don't think I'm going to be capable of human interaction on Sunday (much less operating a motor vehicle).

Have to meet everybody at the rally Thanks though'

For noob/ beginner

Perhaps we can request for a special noob/beginner session if we have enough participants ?

Alright, put in on the IN list. Gonna try and make it for this one from VA. It's tentative at the moment (due to work & financial obligations) but I've been wanting to do this one for a while; that and I might be able to see family at the same time. I'll either be trucking in with a KTM 525 or riding in with a Suzuki DRZ400.
