Re: 2013 Uncle's Around the Bend and Uncle's Desert Challenge - Mar 7-10, 2013

For once the dates kind of work in my favor. I won’t be able to make it until late Friday…and by late I mean midnight, at the earliest. The week after is spring break, so I am going to try to be there Friday night, ride Saturday, Sunday and possibly Monday, and then travel home on Tuesday. Is anyone else planning to extend their stay?

If I survive Uncle's Challenge, I might could be talked into it.

Richard keeps telling me nothing can be as hard as The Unknown Ride at Galeana, but I'm not so sure.....

Great, I am one of the sweep riders for the Challenge, so I will keep some room in the side bag for the bones. I plan on pre-running the route a few times leading up to the real deal so I will have an idea where to watch for flats, out of gas bikes, and knobby track going straight where the road turns sharp.

Thanks Ed. I'll be running this with Richard and making the Uncle's Challenge video for him, via a GoPro3 on my bike and two others mounted on separate bikes.

I can't decide whether I hope you're in the video or not in the video, given your job.

Sounds like a good time, ready for the challenge. Need to get Dirtbike Dave up for this one. Have you talked to him about this Richard? I will.

While I'm thinking about it, If anybody needs free camping, I have space. Sandy and doesn't hold stakes too well, but close to the action and free. I have a small camper on my place, for me, a fireplace, and room for a few tents, if anybody wants a freebee. Look on goog maps for Bee Mnt. I'm at the base, on Fire Station Rd.

Reservations made at the El Dorado for Thu Fri and Sat nights, AND I'll save (almost) enough not hauling the camper to pay for the room! Especially if I can get enough deadbeat buddies to chip in for gas $$ for hauling their dirtbikes and dualsports out while they ride. If anyone wants to share a jacuzzi suite, and their username is not MsBehave, they have more! Stephanie, come on down to Terlingua in March - it'll be a good time.

I've been debating on taking the toy hauler or not. With that said, I might be interested in splitting the cost with you. PM me if offer is still good.

Re: 2013 Uncle's Around the Bend and Uncle's Desert Challenge - Mar 7-10, 2013

I have a plated crf250x. I am planning to put a new sprocket and chain to allow for higher speeds but still have the ability to use it in the dirt. I was wondering if the 250 is sufficient for the Bend?

Yep. I rode my wr250f out there. I plated it, but never put a larger tank on it so I carried extra fuel. Most of the speed limits down there are 55 or less so a 250 does just fine.

I agree with Rusty. Your 250 is a fine choice for Big Bend, especially if you are planning on more dirt than pavement.

I'll be riding from Houston possibly staying overnight en-route somewhere, if anyone wants to come with.
If I'm by myself I'll probably camp, but if someone joins me and is averse to camping we can split motel.
