thanks for the suggestions/recommendations!

I also noticed the Pirelli XC Mid Hard's - as they look at little more aggressive knob in the rear than the Rally's (better for Mud), DOT also - and cheaper.

If I go with these - Question is sizing for a bib on the Front?

Pirelli XC MH 140/80M-18 Rear (I'm assuming I'd need the 140 vs. a too narow 120) - with UHD tube, and a Pirelli XC MH 80/100R-21 Front - would the coresponding Michillin Bib Mousse be the 80/100x21 (M15) and NOT the 90/100-21 (M16) - as I know some tire widths are different from manufacture to manufacture?


Thanks!

Realized this weekend that I am down to about 2 months to go to prep for this one, time to get the bike ready!

So, who else is getting geared up for this?

Sadly we have to cancel the CRC. We simply didn't get the numbers required to come close to breaking even.

Over the past few weeks emails have gone out to this who registered and deposits have been refunded.

The dream isn't dead....we will try again for next year

Our apologies to those who had made plans to attend.

Bummer. I was planning on coming out for this one but hadn't registered yet as I'm still having a bunch of bike issues.

Fack it. Let's all meet at my place and go roost the cheese cows. No charge but tipping is always fun.

I have to say Im glad its being put off-- I want to be in on the ground floor <-- Had some family vacation time to work around this time.

Next time!


I went ahead and signed up for the Orange Crush rally, as a consolation prize so hopefully I'll see some of you guys up there

Sorry to hear this, hope for a better turnout next year.

BTW, something to consider for next year. I know a few guys I have talked to were put off by the extra cost of a roadbook holder. Now that rally navigator has an output format that fits a cheapie enduro roll chart format (I tried it, works pretty well) possibly if you give the option of that roadbook format a few more interested riders might go for it.

Arrgh. Bad news.

I hadn't registered yet just because I was too busy, but I was literally about to do it this weekend.

Hopefully next year.

Same here, me and my buddy were gonna register a couple of weeks ago, but eventually heard it was being cancelled. Next year for sure.

Looks like there's a few people that hadn't registered that were quite interested. Perhaps there would have been a better turn out than anticipated.

I like the idea of also offering the narrow format roadbook. That will most definitely draw more people.

Sorry to hear about the cancellation ,I for one was planning on doing the Rally
next year so I hope you can get the required number for 2015 .
Maybe you can do a letter of intent so that you can judge the interest more
Accurately .I'm in the Midwest so the CRC is more doable for me than Baja and
The terrain is more like what I'm used to. Fritz:

I'm doing the Alcan 5000 this August so couldn't make it. Sorry it is cancelled but I'll be there for next year. Hopefully we can get a lot of interest.
