    NORRA roll charts

    I thought I might actually try the roll charts this year, but I have a question about the size. The ones they gave us 2 years ago were the standard 2 inch size but what I got last year is 5-1/2 inches wide. I've not seen a route chart holder in this size, and it'd be too big for the bars...

    Question for Mag 7 about moto "splash" pits at NORRA

    Last year someone from Mag 7 was on here so I thought I'd ask on the forum. Last year (I only made it halfway through day 3) at several of the splash pits I was told that I was only supposed to be given a gallon or 2., though they did end up filling my tank. I would not have made it with only...

    Advice for first-timer at Vegas-to-Reno

    Doing V2R (amateur quad) for the first time this year, looking for any advice from people who have done it. On someone else's team, so not so much machine prep, but anything at all that might be helpful; what to expect from the course, pitting tips, signup, whatever. Have done multiple 500s...

    Construction south of Santo Thomas

    There is a bunch of road construction on Highway 1 starting in Santo Thomas heading south. Big delays both north and southbound, plan your chasing accordingly. If you think you're going to beat a rider/driver from Uruapan or Santo Thomas to Erendira, think again.......

    NORRA tourist cards

    Excuse my paranoia but I'm just the nervous type. :confused: From NORRA: Please make sure that everyone in your party has passports or passport cards. Everyone transitioning from Baja Norte to Baja Sur will also need tourist visas, which can be processed at NORRA registration. Does anyone know...

    Norra BOLA rooms?

    Has anyone heard anything about Bay of LA rooms for NORRA? Website says they bought all rooms in town, are doling out rooms to entrants. I've been emailing them without any response. I'm a codriver on a 1600 team, driver didn't check when he signed up, I'm hoping there might be something left...

    Turned back at Tecate today for too many spare tires

    Tried to cross at Tecate this afternoon with 2 quads and about 10 spare wheels and tires. Was told I could only take 1 spare with each quad, and if I wanted to pay import duty and bring them in I would have to come back Monday when the right official was there. I was escorted to the front of...

    Does anyone have any experience with these? I'm thinking of using them for the 1000 (stock-engined DS 650). Mostly I'm concerned with the effects of the weight (I haven't been able to find it but it's gotta be a lot). Also if they really do run flat better than a Rzr ll, which I've always...

    A couple SCORE questions for anyone who raced San Felipe

    In the past, all that was checked at tech (quad) was helmets, taillight function, and that you had a first-aid kit. Anything new with the new SCORE? I've paid $80 for the transponder from SCORE--what does that require as far as mounting, power, etc? What did it cost for the tracker or...
