poondangle

I think the following folks are still looking to group up:
HyperMofo
SquadraCorse
SethS
Scholz?
JJMac?

My offer of floor space for a sleeping bag still stands if everything at the top of the mountain is booked. I think we could even sqeeze 3 or 4 onto the back patio if weather cooperates. You might wake up with a deer in your sleeping bag though.

I'm not sure if any car teams have room. Seth can you shed any light on where to look for that info?

Cheers,

SquadraCorse - i'm in if you've got space.

Anyone else interested and we could make it a three bedroom? Scholz? JJMac?

night stage

i'm running a pair of visionx solstice solos as aux lighting on my 530 and i'm wondering if this will be enough for the night stage. They are awesome lights, but i've never used them in a race setting...

Thinking about adding a second set or maybe replacing the main light with a larger LED.

Thoughts anyone?

Hyper-

Poondangle is in for Thursday night only, so if you want in for any of the other nights no problem. Thursday is fine too, but you'll probably need an air mattress or something. Or I can see if a 2 BR is available if you don't want to couch surf.

If anyone else is interested I'm not opposed to upgrading to more rooms, but hit me up ASAP since I need to send payment.

Run as much light as you can...put a light or two on your helmet. No one has ever complained about too much light. We run 4 hella 4000's on the car and want more. Remember that the lights you find great at 35mph will leave you wanting at 70

This is what I have now, Rigid Duallies. One is a spot pattern and one is a fog. I think I'm going to have to swap the fog for another spot, as the beam pattern is too narrow at a long distance. I'll angle the buell headlight down more and have that light up the immediate area. Forgive the wiring, just setup to test it out. My new HDB perch switch should be here today.

So I intended to do Rally WV last year on the 650 ninja I had dual sported. But things took a turn for the worse and I destroyed my right arm. 1 year later and I am pretty much back to normal. Would I be crazy to try this on a wr250r? The ninja and xrr are long gone.

I think the wr250r would be a great rallymoto bike. Its an endurance race and thats about as reliable as it gets. And youve got plenty of stator to support extra lights.

I will strongly consider it. My previous light setup was superb. 8" Bans Designs and rigid duallys.

I finally got some real seat time on the new rally scrambler on Sunday. Did a 290 mile loop with about 70-80 miles of gravel roads.

I probably won't be as fast as on the 450 but man this thing is fun to ride!

Yeah...lights...It's on my to-do list. I'm gonna steal the LEDs from my 450. They're the round 30W quad cree xm-l like what ADVmonster sells. I got mine from a seller on e-bay. The Rigid Dually lights use the same LEDs and similar price too. Should be plenty.

I'll be staying in roughly the same spot as last year, in the same group of condos as you Jack.

we were lining up a place to rent but canceled mid process when we realized we would lose 50% if we had to cancel after paying. Given that we are still building the car we thought it wiser to wait until we know we are going.
