For anyone who would like to participate in the Rally but is tight on funds, I'll work one on one with you to find volunteer opportunities to offset your cost.

We had a nice meeting tonight at Live Oak Bar and Grill with Travel Diva and Meriden and some other Yamaha TW 200 enthusiasts and had some good ideas thrown out. TravelDiva will be booking up hotel blocks at three area hotels and trying for some negotiated rates.

This should be fun. The Dos y Dos looks compelling. I think a Honda 90 Trail bike might be up for the challenge.

Of course, if you are on a trail 90, maybe you should opt for the smaller class challenge we're saving for later, LOL.

They look so fun, especially on the TAT trail.

Love the LED headlight, snorkel, etc on the yellow one. Well thought out!

If I didn't think I'd hurt myself trying the off-road stuff as a TOTAL beginner I might be up for this. Then again, I DID attend a few years ago on the big-pig and stayed on-road and had a blast. Hmmmm.....

Those ADV reports have some really neat improvisational small cc bikes adventures, like A Honda called DOT.

...I guess the snorkel is for high-water crossings.



Thanks for taking over Uncle's Big Bend dual-sport rally.
