I noticed "quiet" is a requirement... how firm are they on that?

They do run a db meter at tech. Stock mufflers no problems. Aftermarket, only seen one denied because he was so loud.

That was me, on a big bore XR400 with a nasty cam and White Bros exhaust, blew 103db. Of course, it wasnt street legal anyway, and I was just there to course marshall a section, but had I been an entrant, I'd be sent packing. Mighta helped if I'd repacked the muffler...

If you have a bike like that, dont bother coming! If you are a "little" loud, you will be told to keep the revs/sound down around residences.

Spark arrestor, no ifs ands or buts!

Point being, these are privately owned lands, with other privately owned neighbors, and Marvin wants to keep them all happy {for the 9th year}...

I'll be riding my DRZ with a stock can and aftermarket end cap.

Kyle, I think your bike will be fine though it can really benefit from the quiet insert.... or you can do it on a WRR

Hey ob1, fully recovered from the RV crash? I'd love to see that DRZ in action

Not quite, I have a spot in my back that is just taking it's sweet time. Might even go see a doctor!

I do not suggest y'all try rolling a stepvan, even if you have cat-like ninja reflexes as I do...

Just finished fixing up the bike, went with a black plastic kit, and some DRZ-SM signals and drop fender.

Do any DR 650 or KLR 650 sized bikes enter? Part of the trails run in and out of our land and seem tight for bikes as large as those. My son rides a DR and me a KLR.

The KLRs and DRs do ride it, but I would suggest using the easy-outs provided if you dont like what you see. Some of the gnarly technical stuff can be gnarly and technical! That trail is concentrated in Marvin's section, and one we call Gold Mine.

I've even seen big Beemers make it on the tough stuff...but if you doubt your capability based on the terrain you are seeing, take the easy-out!
