I heard today that there are about 50 entrants so far not 29 like the early list shows and also a lot of interest from late comers. There is still plenty of time (19 days) to break out the vintage and come show it off. Contingency is also on Mexican Independance day El Grito, so it should be a fiesta.

Offroad Racing Legends, Vintage Race Vehicles/ Bikes and a Fiesta?

Classic !

We were all set to do this race on a 74' 400 Husky WR but now I'm looking at knee surgury in Sept so we're out. Definately like to see this happen next year IN MARCH!

Best of luck with your knee repair, it's incredible how far the medical technology has advanced for knee repair.

Has there been anything said about % of dirt & pavement?
I'm just curious because it seems like people aren't going to want to drive their vintage cars thru rough areas such as Salada to Borrego, Purisma to Javier, and a few other spots.
Mexicalli to top of Diablo before hitting dirt?
Just curious.

All,

I speaking with the NORRA folks about this aspect of the event (and this has been a source of much discussion), they have gone out of there way to insure that that roads used are fun and not overly rough, and there is about 25-35% asphault, which should make it really fun.

Mostly graded roads for the specials with timed stages, then Liasons on pavement or graded roads to the next special. I am being told that the course is fast and not a car destroyer, this is all for fun and challenge of driving skills.

This is something I'd love to do on a bike. But as I recall the bike year was to be earlier than '75ish or something. It didn't get raised to '88 until recently. Doesn't exactly leave a bunch of time to get something ready.
Since it got raised I've been looking for an '83 YZ490 - same model/year I did my 1st B1K. But, i'm sure there's better choices out there.


you know Tim i've got a creampuff '83 ktm 495 stuffed in the back
of the garage if you want to prep it i'd love to see it run Baja... :D

We're counting on this. I'm going "old-school" with the passenger and only taking one guy to monkey the whole way. He's got no seat, so he has to stand up for 1000 miles! For B1K we destroyed three guys getting it done.

We're still messing with the fuel injection to get E85 to work in this thing. Fuel range is going to suffer a bunch. But aren't modern Harley's built with old 50's technology? That's what people tell me anyway. We might actually be legal in both the Vintage AND the Alt-Fuel categories. ;)

Corn in the gas tank and bananas for the passenger and we should be good to go!

Kevin Anderson is doing the duty. He was my passenger in middle section of B1K last year. After the San Felipe whoops he wanted more :eek:

Here he is off-duty, and on:
