I am also very keen - please keep me in the loop. I think the KTM 690 would be an ideal bike to do this on.
Loving the journey!

If the entries do not pick up this weekend I fear the class will die without a wimper.

That would suck. But I guess what really sucks is how few races there are in each region due to the fact that it's only at national offroads. If they included the regional offroads as well maybe the entries would rise?

Yes and no, depending on the club's view on the matter, take last weekends Dealer200 at De Wetsdorp, there is no way a DS bike would have negotiated some of the sections and the organizers have their work cut out already as it is just to complete the route in time. I do not see most organizers being willing to lay out a more tame route for DS bikes at the same time... it all boils down to economics. Now... if a few dozen DS riders would pitch in and help the organizers... that would make it viable imho. >:D

IF all goes well, 2-3 weeks from now i can get back on a bicycle (and motorbike) but another 2 weeks at least after that before i can go offroad on either...
