The 2012 396-Mile Salton Sea Endurance Rally is a pre-entry event requiring payment of an entry fee, designation of rider and scooter, providing medical information in case of an emergency.
We will ride rain or shine. This rally consists of three counter-clockwise laps around the Salton Sea, starting and finishing in Brawley, CA. An endurance rally is an extreme form of riding meant to test the mettle of rider and scooter. This rally will challenge the rider's physical stamina, the scooter’s state of preparedness, and the logistics of covering a substantial distance with a minimal amount of stops. Not unlike the Scooter Cannonball Rally, our rally covers a set distance consisting of laps around the Salton Sea. Riders must have their Rally Passport validated (stamped) at checkpoints along the route on each and every lap. This is not a street race! It is an endurance rally. The goal of any rally is to travel the correct route at the correct speeds, and arrive at “checkpoints'' to have your Passport stamped. Again, this rally is not a road race, and riders are prohibited from riding in a reckless or illegal fashion. There are obviously myriad personal reasons for participating in a rally such as this. Regardless of whether you're challenging your physical stamina, testing the mechanical condition of your scooter, or merely attempting to gain bragging rights, please make no mistake about it -- 396 miles is a hell of a long scooter ride!
