I just got back from my first trip to Glamis with my 700. I was curious to see how it would handle in the sand being that I get smoked by my friends Honda 450, with some engine mods, at the lakebeds. I'm glad to report that the Rappy is faster in the sand...and I weigh around 70 pounds more than he does :thumbsup:. We raced at least 8 times and I had him on all 8. He also ran paddles which were about half the weight of my Sandstars.

Glamis...you have to see it to believe it.

Glamis is the best! Ive only been out twice this season so far, but am going the last weekend of the month.

I normally camp in Wash 4. Where did you stay?

Did you go to Oldsmobile?

Glad you had a great time!! You probably picked one of my favorite weekends. (It's not packed with holiday traffic!!). Those who haven't ridden on sand (dunes) have no idea what they are missing. I hope they all get the same experience you had.
We will also be there on the last weekend of the month. It's one of the busier weekends, but I go this time every year. Tradition I guess!

I met up with some friends who have trailers on wash 12. I'm a newbee with only a truck so I stayed with a few other newbees in a hotel in Brewley. We just went back late at night to sleep then rode the next day. The dunes were intimidating at first (thought I was going to die :eek:) but once I got used to it the next day was great.

I had so much fun I cant wait to go back. I honestly can't get get it off my mind how much fun I had.
Oldsmobile hill was awsome!! And the drags were insane!
