Is this rally for me? This rally is purposely designed for three groups of riders: 1.) BMR riders who want to experience a shorter rally with elements consistent with traditional rallies including: a. Routing on the clock b. Rally-provided data files of bonus locations c. Rest bonuses 2.) IBR 2015 and Butt Lite XIII Finishers and other veteran rallyists who want to experience a sharp multi-day rally which will provide: a. Time/distance calculations galore in a competitive event. b. Opportunity to test and fine-tune equipment and methodologies c. Smart phone bonus submission and scoring in (near)real-time. 3.) Tenured riders with strong riding skills (and perhaps no formal rally experience) a. Routing/riding to all mandatory bonuses (complete your triangle) and earning rest bonuses will meet finishing status criteria. b. Add more miles and more points by choosing optional bonuses and adding them to your route and earning them. (This is the basic concept of all competitive rallies)
Cost: As with all BMR events, we work hard to keep costs low and we believe the cost/value ratio of this event is ultra-high. Use the savings for decent lodging before/during/after the event. Three pricing tiers: * General $50.00 * BMR 2016 Finishers : $25.00 * IBR 2015 Finishers: $49.00 * Butt Lite VIII Finishers: $49.00
Expectations: 1. Safety and knowing your limits is paramount. Ride smart and within your skill set. If you don’t know your limits or skill set, this event is not for you. 2. Your conduct will be superlative at all times. In BMR events you are at the scoring table 24/7, any conduct not seen as positive and constructive to moto-bike fun in general; and this event specifically: Will result in an immediate egress from this event. 3. BMR bonus picture requirements are tough, much tougher than most other events. Be prepared to partner with the scoring team by breaking-your-ass on every bonus submission to secure solid pictures which meet scoring team criteria. If you’re of the mindset that riding to the bonus is good enough and should earn points, this event is not for you. In BMR events strong bonus submission efforts are the expectation.
