I think it's just $15 a night. (And Saturday free.)

Nice, thanks. Calling them today.

Registered at the camp. It was just $20 and some change with taxes etc. He said he only did Friday reg, and Saturday was taken care of via the 'rally folks'. Well, I'm in space #1, and will be there Sat too.

With the rally less than 2 weeks away I thought I would post up some information that may make tech easier for some of the new competitors.

taken from the NASArallysport site:
....the bike has to be registered for the road, and insured in your state.
Secondly, the bike needs these:
  • a headlight and a rear light
  • exhausts with some kind of a spark arrestor (or a cat)
  • horn (90 dba)
  • rear mirror
  • all legally required lights (including turn signals)
  • you need a first aid kit
  • a road triangle
  • a laminated "OK/Red Cross" status sheet.
http://www.nasarallysport.com/main/RallyMoto%20Faq

When I have been at Tech horns and turn signals were one of the common things missing since not all states require them to be street legal.

Its not been an issue but here are the helmet certifications (from the rulebook).

All helmets must be full-face non-hinged helmets. Certifications accepted are:
a) USA SNELL M 2000
b) USA DOT
c) Europe ECE 22-04
d) Europe ECE 22-05 P
e) Great-Britain BS 6658 GRADE A
f) Japan JIS T 8133 : 2000

my 690 currently has one of these on it...the stock horn disappeared before an event so I put this on. Not sure it would clear rally moto tech

We want you guys to be able to race. We always try and find the best solution available. We REALLY want to show up at tech with real horns, PLEASE!

I work in a very weather dependent business, therefore, I follow a few weather services that specialize in more accurate long range forecasting. Everything they are saying right now says the weather all up and down the east coast will be fantastic....up until a day or so before the rally

Seeing the same thing in my Crystal Ball. (Professional meteorologist by education). Cold at night for us campers, possibly wet to very wet.

Much respect man!! Talk about a profession that is insanely important, and people shit on it regularly. The guys that do it well are worth their weight in GOLD. I bet there's a bunch of propane dealers all around wishing they had paid attention to decent long range forecasters. Seriously, awesome education choice, I've very impressed!

Don't be too impressed. I'm still learning the patterns here in the Carolina's, living in Charleston, and constantly surprised by shoreline rain bands caused by the sea and land air parcels interacting. It'll become unstable right at the coast, then erode inland against the prevalent winds. Tricky to tell how fast that'll occur, and sometimes how violently.

To become more than a broadcast weatherman you need to spend 2-5 years tending buoy's in the higher latitudes. I hate being cold, wet, dangling upside down in a buoy while salt spray runs up my nose, so I went into IT instead.

Right now most of the long-range products show a high pressure system bringing great weather this weekend through Wednesday. Thursday it'll move out to sea, pushing a little moist air our way with a low pressure system skirting north of Cheraw. This'll bring cold, but hopefully not arctic air into Cheraw. Falling temps with rising humidity = rain showers. It's just a numbers game then - with the strength and proximity of each pressure center determining how wet we get.

This is all subject to change though, and there's at least a chance that the high could stall over the area and roll the low right past us. It would at least buy us a clear, sunny Friday for registration.

Still a long way out, but it does fit the pattern we've been seeing this winter. That said, there are several other models that show the vortex staying well North of the Mason Dixon and punishing Vermont and surrounding areas.

I hope it stays north. I hate the snow, I'm over the cold weather. I hate riding in the cold and wet. Not much can make an awesome day more miserable!
