what class do I look at when riding as a noob with a 990 with GPS
I'll post the classes soon but in short
Rally Bikes Unlimited cc with Road Book
Cross Country / Enduro Bikes  GPS
Gold class 250  4T  250 2T or less GPS
Gold Open class bigger engine capacity than 250cc,GPS
Silver Class  unlimited cc - they do half the marathon stage on day 2 but the rest with Gold classes GPS
Vintage Bikes unlimited cc - same distance as Silver class GPS
The youtube video above will give you a real idea but  the Sliver is doable   990 will be a real handful GPS

My Mimi man has gotten a bee in his bonnet for a race like this. Clear he follows that mad Aussie on Insta.

But he is not so mini. His stats are:
16 years old (17 at time of race)
1.87m tall
80kg in weight with rugby season to start.

He is going to have to dip into his savings. But what type of bike should we look for.

What would you guys suggest.

Yamaha WR250F would probably do nicely. For any kind of racing he might get into, actually.

how does off road classes work? You just load tracks on whatever GPS and one follows that?
is strongly advisable to have a 2-gps setup in silver class?


And what else would a weekend warrior looking for a tough adventure ride + loads of tax need in silver class?

Off-Road classes use GPS only one Etrex will do but two are a better choice. set one at about 80m Elevation & the other at about 120m, this way you can see ahead on the 120m
