OK 530 boys, screw wheeties, I'm thinking little chocolate doughnuts, a coke and a smoke. You guy's in?

None of those trails are really challenging for a decent rider at a normal pace, but some of them are definitely tight and twisty. Cool stuff. Nothing you can't do on a 530 though.

I like those key words:

"Decent Rider"
"Normal Pace"
"Tight and Twisty"

Now all you have to do is decide if those key words will add up for you if the event organizers define "normal pace" as a 24mph average

Just sayin'.

Sounds like I might bring the 950. If I have a rough night at work I may bring the 530. if any of you ADV riders see an old guy(55) trying to pick up his 950ADV, feel Free to help!

I totally agree. Just pointing out the trails out there aren't difficult by themselves, but will be challenging when trying to ride them fast. Several are tight enough to rub your shoulder on the trees in the turns. It's my favorite place to go for a moto-workout.

Definitely NOT 950 friendly.

Of course, this event may not include any of the trails I'm thinking of, I don't know.

The flier says "not for twins" you had better believe them. I'm familiar with the clubs trails and there are hard spots. Even for seasoned off road riders, it will likely be difficult and will likely be raining just to make it better. It should be a great time, but you had better bring real knobbies and a capable plated dirt bike. Just sayin...

So after reading the flyer again today, (and maybe I'm just pointing out the obvious), it says "roll chart holder recommended (Navigation only)", and that there will be "3 or more Special Tests".

This tells me that there won't be any speed averages on the roll chart to worry about, and for the Special Tests we "Pin it to Win it".

Are my deductive skills working?

Making up lost time on public roads wouldn't be a good idea so I doubt there is a minute to maintain. Now for the test sections hold on to your butt

We have one enduro per year run with ISDE format, if it is the same, then your deductive skills are working fine. For all the bitching when it came to the states, the ISDE rules have brought lots of riders into enduro riding. Timekeeping is always the toughest part about convincing someone to try an enduro. No time keeping, no confusion.

Alright Whitney, I am in for this one for sure and it looks like Iain is leaning toward it too. I told Bergland about it and he sounded like he wants to ride his TE so we'll have two Huskies in the house.

Word on the street is that it's likely to be a difficult enduro that requires a license plate to connect some sections. The term dual sport can give guys the wrong idea. Think plated dirt bikes when deciding which bike to bring. Can't wait!
