March 19-23, 2018 I'm going to try to do this one. Four days. LOTS of dunes. BIG dunes. Woody's helping me out with a new 2.5" rear rim that should handle the mousse much better. With that size rear rim I may even do the Enduro ST (Motoz) rear. I'm going to need all the sand traction I can get. The Desert H/T was really good but I'll see what I can do here.
This is a REALLY cool idea! Basically it's a tour of the Sonora Rally Mar 17-22, 2019 on an adventure motorcycle! Get to ride adv-friendly trails and stay each night in the bivouac and get a feel for a true rally raid event. I think this is really fantastic. If you're interested in doing something like this then I can tell you you're going to have a blast. That part of Mexico is very beautiful and offers a lot of great riding. The food is amazing and the people very friendly. It's not an unsafe part of the country either. I don't know the exact race course but the race last year starts in San Luis Rio Colorado which is just across the border south of Yuma, AZ and snakes down along the east side of the Gulf of California. Visit their website for more information! My contact says: Whoever comes along on this tour will have the oversight and support of the org for safety as well as full bivvy experience and out and back to the race course with a little following along the course...lots of great scenery and some wine and cheese! New Adventure Raid class ($1350): The new Adventure Raid class replaces last years Safari Class. Adventure Raid is intended as an introduction to navigation rally without the stresses of racing and most extreme terrain. It is a guided trip, designed for street legal 4 wheel drive vehicles (Raptors, Jeeps and Overlanders) and adventure motorcycles (BMW GS, KTM 950, etc.). You will be running paved and dirt roads mostly parallel to the race course, with occasional intersections with the race course to provide opportunities to watch the action. You will not be running at race speeds or scored in results. Navigation is by following the guide and following provided GPS tracks. The trip will be at an easy pace to enjoying the scenery and the unique Sonora Rally experience, at points along the course and in the bivouac. 5 day guided trip that parallels the Sonora Rally Proof of Mexican auto insurance required May include a portion of a race-like paper roadbook to see what roadbook navigation is like (you may want a basic rally odomotor, like the $20 RallyBlitz app for iphone or the free F2R Rally Tripmeter app for Android). These apps are not allowed in the competition categories. The Rally Comp device used in the race classes will not be used in the Adventure Raid class Includes Sonora Rally Adventure Raid decals Includes Bivouac Pass with bivouac meals and awards party dinner Includes 4 nights in hotel (double occupancy). You will be paired in the room with your "navigator" or a fellow rider, or an event volunteer. Camping 2 nights at remote dirt bivouacs (right in there with the competitors) using your own camping gear. For cars, a vhf radio programmed to Sonora Rally frequency is highly recommended A SPOT or inReach tracking device is required. Limited spaces available, so don't wait to enter.
