I'm looking into putting Heidenau K60s on. More expensive, but get great reviews on the Sertao thread and look like they will stand up well to the abuse. Not so great for sand.

+1

i'm a 606 f & r rider and happy with them, except the price keeps on going up....

it started at @ $52 and now for the same tire size it's about $94 (discounted)

Which rear is more likely to last the whole weekend, the D606 or the T63?

Hey Ersin,

I went to the movie "Why We Ride" last night and wore my DV NooB 2012 shirt. Ran into a guy I know and he asked me to put him on the wait list.

(I'll keep track of the $$ for all of these!!) So, here's another

Peter-Neuper-MC3-D3-HP2

I warned him that Joel had a HP2 also, so he was a shoe in.

The D606. A lot of SCORE Baja racers use the D606 just because they'll take the abuse and last.

it's going to be fun.
Someone told me that 'light is right'!

Hopefully we get off the wait list and get a spot. Can't wait to redo some of the routes from last year!

Who knows, maybe there will be a massive KTM recall.

Michael, FTL900, TR2, D3, DR350

I'd be tent camping.

site 49 or 50 or 52 or 62 - THANKS Ersin






10-4 Joel

Thursdays Destination: - easyish noob shortish warm up ride,

Fridays Destination: Salt Tram intermediate / possibly advanced ride - depending on recently tore up road conditions
never been there, don't know how to get there, BUT we will get there somehow, ?(I have tracks to Cerro Gordo on the GPS I bought from Joel) ?
If you go with me bring at least 2 days worth of survival supplies

Saturdays Destination : short ride 100 miles + or - 20

gotta keep my mileage and injury potential low this trip
I have to Fly to WA on Monday then drive my In Laws motorhome to CA
If the warm up ride is the similar to this year's Thursday afternoon run, I'm in and I suggest it to any newbie. Great terrain and some awesome stops along the way. Much more scenery than I expected from a warm-up.

And the Saturday Short ride would fit Titus in very well...
