At the risk of sounding uber-noob (which I am)....will I be ok on the rally with Michelin Anakees or should I have something more gnarly?

You'll be in good company - lots of bikes will show up with 80/20 tires or worse.
I rode last year on similar.
I will likely be on the stock trailwings this year (different bike). Unless I smoke'em between now and then - but if I do, I'll likely replace them with anakees.

No worries.

Keep in mind that this is coming from a EOAR noob. This my first year but I hear that there are lots of options from pavement, to gravel, to two track to what have I gotten myself into. It depends on what you want to ride. I'm riding a 12GS with Tourances and have been told no worries there will be groups doing just pavement and gravel. Then again, they could just be setting me up.

Nope - you described it correctly. There will be a variety.

Update!

Sorry for the lack of details here recently...... This whole working for a living thing blows!

In any case here we go......

We are pre-riding some of the routes this weekend and we will then be able to get some gps files together. We will try to have a couple of computers together on the friday night for uploading routes however we are hoping to have paper maps available as well. Dont get too hung up on having GPS routes loaded up as there will be someone up front of every group with it.

We are looking at 4 routes. One strictly pavement for the tarmac group. A second that will concentrate on the gravel backroads and logging roads. The third being a little tougher with a mix of the two previous with some snowmobile type trails thrown in... knobby tires would be preferred. And of course Michaels epic "knobby tires are a must" route. You can expect to have conquered some good challenges and have wet feet at the end of this route.

We received many good reviews on the black angus steak BBQ for the Saturday night and I think that we will stick with that ....

The Saturday night dinner and fire pit and the rest of the weekend for that matter are all be BYOB if you are wanting to indulge. There is a Liquor store about 10k to the east if you need to make a run. Obvoiusly the pub and other licensed areas are not.

The basic itinerary is as follows:

Friday afternoon: Ride and arrive! Check in at the front desk and get your keys, itinerary and wristbands and such... go setup camp and relax or whatever...Use the many resort facilities if you wish....go for a wee ride to the restored mills and century village in Lang....go for a swim in the pool or in the lake if you dare!

Friday Evening: Congregate at the "Wild blue yonder" pub in the front of the main building for debriefing and a pint or few if you wish. Dinner will be available in the pub as well. During this we will try to have an information session, establish riding groups, and a toast to the second annual EOAR!

Saturday morning: Breakfast buffet (included in your package) will be served at 7:30 AM. Get in and get er done as we want to start getting groups tagged and together at the end of the runway at about 8:30am and departing shortly therafter....

Saturday night: Return by 6pm for the steak BBQ, prize giveaway and fire! Once again its BYOB for the dinner and firepit area. We are going to leave the Sunday more open as Im sure that after the rides on Saturday there will be some info to share and likely some re riding of some sections...

This is about all I have for now....

Any questions???

Looking forward to this one!

Beer

I can only add one item to what Motoaxe mentioned above.

Arrangements have been made for a fresh keg of beer at the fireside. It's manditory after 8 hours or so of gravel dust.

I noted several riders from the area have asked if they can participate in the event but NOT stay at the resort.

Did I miss the reply? I was thinking of doing the knarly route on the 525, leaving the R100GS at home with it's silly street tires.

So If I pop by on Friday afternoon can I register for the ride and festivities without booking a place to sleep? Sounds like $69 if you are open to this??

How many others are going for the aggressive route?
