Good to hear you will be racing again this year. I smashed the piggy bank and signed up yesterday.

It's going to be great!

two thousand dollar bucks for entry is challenging my justification for this, what seems to be epic event.

Yeah, it will do that. I guess it is a game-changer for many. However, I would challenge you to find a rally with as many "special stage" miles as this one for even close to that. Or figure out how much it would cost to run an offroad race or stage rally season and still you probably wouldn't come close to running as many race miles.

You could most definitely just ride on your own down there for much less. And that is what many people do.

two quick questions

1) Has anybody raced in the ATC/three wheelr class in the past ? or is this a new class ?...the 1000 is way out of the question for me but I really want to see what they end up doing in the Sept.event and maybe I can make that one in '14

A well set up Honda 350X seems like it would be a pretty good rig for its reliablility...but a Tri-Z or Tecate would rip

2) How many MC guys trailer the transits ? rough percentage ?

I've been there all three years and have never seen an ATC or Quad. I about about the Tecate, I'm thinking an 88 or 89 250r FourTrax would be cool...but you may be wishing your were on 2 wheels about day 2.5.
