Subject: IMPORTANT NOTE: FUEL RANGE EXTENDED
Riders and Crews-
Due to at least one lengthy route on the BAJA RALLY 2.0, we will have a 205 mile (329km) special where we may not have a gas stop set up between 2 points 147mi apart. Its a situation we cant be sure of solving.
Therefore, the minimum gas range for riders and bikes has been raised to 150 miles indefinitely. Some riders will need to carry extra fuel on certain stages.
The Giant Loop Mojavi Bag has been used widely in rallies all over the world for riders to carry water, tools and gas. These are lightweight easy to use saddle bags to carry up to a gallon of liquids. Riders are using TouraTech’s 2 liter bottles on each side of the Mojavi in some cases.
I realize this is going to effect a few riders right off the bat and wanted to make sure everyone has enough notice to respond to the changes.
I welcome your phone call or email reply to discuss this further if needed or answer any questions you might have. Don’t hesitate to call 858 342-8222.
