We have a few of those fuel bladders riding in our group too...I just hope the average 1000+cc motors are feeling frugal. Nothing sucks more than remembering throttle control when the trail beckons for us to twist away.

Any of you have experience with the product Ride-On? http://www.ride-oncanada.com

I know some shy away from things like this, but it isn't slime and it works for both tube and tubeless. Apparently more affective on tubeless, just because tubes can be torn. From all I have read, and there are always disenters, the product gets great reviews. Apparently many BMW dealers sell it and install in customers bikes. I like the idea that it goes in before you have a potential issue, versus afterwards.

Some great demo videos on Youtube too.

Part of the CIS Rally route that we used on the first morning of last years RR, wasn't far from the big mud bog first thing Friday morning. One of my favorite trails to ride!

No not this year. But there are some of the other old favorites from past years and some new challenges that will have enough mud and water and rocks to keep everyone grinning!

logistics question and query

I need to find a place to park my pickup truck and cycle trailer somewhere near Ottawa (for the RREE, that is from May 22 Thursday pm to May 25 Sunday pm.)

Any leads or suggestions would be appreciated.

It is a longer story but briefly..... I'm bringing my GS on my pickup/trailer to Ottawa for the RREE from Maryland so I can drive to Sudbury after the rally to pick up a bike and take it home.

Email has been sent out for folks registered for the Explorers Edition.

An email will be going out to Roaming Rally participants in the next few days. Route has changed, new campgrounds, etc. Still using the same starting point (shared with RREX folks).


Is it May yet?

Please make sure that everyone on your team gets a copy of the email. Often it has been ending up in folks spam folder, and they wonder why they haven't receive it.

Any recommendations on RR parking for a van + trailer?
I seem to recall someone saying the camp ground can offer parking for an additional fee, but with the changes since then I'm getting a bit nervous.
