as long as he has a motor cycle license and your bike is legit, no dif then letting him drive your car. if anything happens its between you and the man. the hammer crew will check insurance and registration and want to keep it on the up and up, but nobody care who owns the bike, as long as its legal.

Thanks,

No clue Jeff, They have a GS rider run the big bike course so they know it can be done.

True, dat!
The big bikes will have a ball on Saturday. Just avoid the hero sections
which will be marked on the route sheet and on the trail.
I have done the Saturday trail on my 1150 GSA with TKC 80's, aired down to
20 psi, NO bags or tail trunks, just a small tank bag for incidentals such
as: documentation, power bar, a water bottle, etc.
It's a work out for this 59 y/o codger, but it can be done and you will get
such a feeling of accomplishment that your tired bones won't care.
Come out and play like a kid. You'll love it.

Big bikes!

Oh, BTW, my "little" bike is an XR650L.
I'll be out here both days with my tow rope and a flask of gas for
anyone in need. Never been a Hammer when I haven't used both.

i will be there

I am all in for this year's Hammer Run - I think this is the 6th or 7th time I have come down for it and have always been on a "bigger" bike.
KTM 640 Enduro - 1 year
KTM 640 Adventure - 2 years
BMW XChallenge 650 - 3 years?

Oh yeah, I did do it on a BMW 450 but that was weird for me because I like bigger bikes as long as i can stay out of the way of the enduro crowd. I have noticed fewer and fewer bigger bikes and there are less people that can ride with and keep a normal pace.

I really hope there are some KTM 690s and 990s.

Count me in,
Sno Dawg

On a xr 650L its no problem to do all the hard stuff. That what I used to ride. Now I ride a xr 400. I was just as fast on the 650, just more tired at the end of the day.

Sat vs Sun

In the past, I have found Saturday to be a little more wide open trails at times and with tighter woods and bumps every now and again. On Sunday - tighter trails seem to prevail and there seems to be more enduro guys out and I feel like I am in the ways as they are "racing" in larger groups. I have been on a bigger bike most of the time setting my own pace - a medium speed.

Looking forward to this year as the Hammer Run crew always puts on a fantastic event - food, fire and fun!!

Nice guy,,i forget his name.He was very pleasant.
I was on the BMW 450,so he kinda flagged me down before riders meeting on Saturday.And I saw him again after,and he said he had a blast,,and that he was getting a much smaller bike for this year.
