GET-XTR-EME Motorcycle Endurance Series and Off-road Promotion Launches

Get ready for an all new way to LIVE off-road in Southern California. Bringing desert racing into the 21st century with instant results, same day awards ceremonies, premium media coverage, social media backing and new and unique event formats. On top of that GXE also promotes the local off-road races to grow and strengthen the desert racing community as a whole.

"I just love off-road racing.." says GXE Owner-Operator Erek Kudla "I've always been involved with putting on races and just want to move desert racing into the future so it can survive and grow."

GXE also offers all the Promotional services needed to put on a successful off-road event including graphic design for Event T-Shirts, Event Fliers, Event Ads, Event Trophies, Event Web Ads, Event Buttons and all other Social Media needs!

2013 AMA/GXE Motorcycle Endurance Series

For 2013 GXE is hosting a series like none other on the West Coast. Five events comprised of two long distance team races, one Dual Stage Day/Night Team race, one National Hare and Hound and one 4 Hour "Tough" Scramble in conjunction with the third Annual JCR Christmas Classic Grand Prix.

"We just want to offer races that you don't see anywhere else on the west coast." said Kudla "The idea of the team races is to give Baja racers an opportunity to dust off the cob webs before they go south of the border. And really, what better way to spend the weekend with your friends and family then to team up and race! On top of that we have the 2nd annual Fireworks Extreme which will be even bigger and better then last year. Its held in conjunction with the Fireworks 500 Truck race and is one of the biggest events I've ever been a part of!"

Been seeing a lot of series adding a 200 class, nice to have some extra classes like that for variance.

Since I am a midget, I have really been thinking about getting one.

Props to you Kudla, doing a great job with this, keeping desert racing going and giving up more options to go play!

The 200 Class is the AMA National Class - 86-200cc. To accommodate the KTM 200

I personally LOVE the KTM 200s!!! Thats definitely going to be my next bike.

After 6 years, 50+ races and well over 12,000 trail miles with not even one valve adjustment, my WR finally decided to die at the end of a great ride in Johnson Valley on sunday. Looks like I'll have no ride for round 1. So bummed.

Tyson - If I see you in the GP results so help me... ;)

Haha, I'm pissed that I'm missing Checker's as well. Was going to be my first race of the year, in prep for the Barstow 200.

Contemplating dusting off the 650R...

I think I'm going to miss checkers to... way to much crap to take care of before my race. Sucks because I did the schedule so I could race it! 2014 I'll have to do the schedule so that I have the week before and after fee!

But as of now I'm hopping in a truck after the Barstow 200 and driving straight to San Felipe!

Purvines Dominates Inaugural Round

Barstow 200 - March 3rd 2013 - Barstow, Ca

The maiden voyage of the Get-Xtr-Eme series and its racers headed to Barstow, Ca for the first ever 200 Mile team race. Riders were able to register at the Holiday Inn Express and enjoyed a racers discount for their stay. They also were able to indulge in all the creature comforts of being just outside of the huge outlet center just 2 miles away from staging. Once all that set it and the sun came up on Sunday the real excitement began with a 50 mile loop that was to be ran 4 times. 22 Pros - including Open Pros, 2-Stroke Pros and Quad Pros - along side some of the bravest sportsmen in the desert made up nearly 50 teams that would take on the first round of the 2013 GXE Motorcycle Endurance Series.

Purvines Racing's new Beta 's have proven to be great racing machines with their dominance in the Bitd, National Hare and Hound and local Mran and D37 racing series so it was no surprise that they would be sitting on top of the box again at the first round of the GXE series. The Pro and Pro 2-Strokes would take off from the dead engine start and into the first turn with Justin Morrow into the first turn but it would be 3 Brothers KTM's Ryan Kudla who would get the holeshot aboard his KTM 300 XC-W to the top of the big climb after studying the start before the race. "I spotted a great line through some bushes, b-lined across the rocks and went from 5th to 2nd before we even started up the hill" He would crest over with Morrow and Brad Pace hot on his tail into the first valley.

Morrow would make the pass at the first road crossing when Kudla would check up and he would settle into second for the first 25 miles. Morrow, Kudla and the SRT Pro team of Max Eddy Jr and Brad Pace would stay nose to tail all the way to check 2. The course would sweep around the mountain and into the much more technical canyons south of Stoddard Valley. Behind the Pros the Open A class was catching up starting just 60 seconds behind. The Blais Racing racing team of Brendon Crow, Ben Meza and Austin Keys would grab the holeshot and never look back. They would start to work their way through the field and into the top 5 where they would stay for the rest of the day.

Back up front Morrow would stretch out his lead to 3 minutes before handing it off the team mate Nick Burson who would continue to put on a clinic. Pace was catching up to Kudla as the course got more technical and a tip over would let Pace get by easily. Kudla still held onto 1st 2 stroke Pro, but not for long as Purvines Racing's Axel Pearson was catching fast. After the alternate gas pit at race mile 36 Kudla would lose his buffer as he would stop for a splash of gas while Pearson and his big Clark tank had no problem making the full distance. Once the riders got into the virgin lava rocks just after the pit Pearson would make the pass and while Kudla would try to make some moves but could never get back by. Pearson would maintain the lead in the 2 Stroke Pro class even after trading off to his team mate Tallon Taylor. Kudla would pass it off to team mate Kevin Murphy and they would be able to stay in 4th overall taking 2nd 2 Stroke Pro on the day.

The inaugural round of the GXE series was a huge success and is only going to get better. Every racer who came out and competed is a true champion at heart for taking on something brand new. Pushing themselves and their machines to the limits over every different type of terrain that Stoddard Valley had to offer from fast valleys, rocky peaks, gnarly climbs and brutal canyons and more fast trails. For 200 miles, or at least as far as they could make it. Especially the handful of riders that participated in their very first race.

Another huge accomplishment was made by all of the event workers. They all put their faith in the series, showed up to support the brand new venture and made the event possible. Without them the event would not have gone off as well or at all. So we have to thank them all by name (in no particular order) - Adam Casper, Melissa Kudla, Ryan Kudla, Alina Leon, Loren Bollen, Jessica Evers, Cheryl and Woody Taylor, Mitch Bangert, Sam Bangert, Doreen Bangert, G-Ma Bangert, Chris and Patty Blais, Bob and Linda Smart, Angela Leon, Scotty Von, Scott Simpson, Joe Miller, Daniel Seagondollar and wife, John Tayze, Tom Kudlick, Brian Keys, Jacob Micnha, Cody Marion, Brad Pace, All the people that helped in the pits, the series sponsors, the teams that brought out all their racers... without all of you the event would not have been possible! Thank you again.

      Hi everyone,
      I'm looking for a bit of California-specific information for a particular scenario, and I haven't been able to find a definitive answer anywhere. I am the owner of a '95 XR600R that I bought with a CA plate a few months ago, and so far I've been loving it. Unfortunately, last week I was in an accident on the street where a car turned in front of me, and both the bike and car took some damage. I'm doing fine (and I'm not at fault), and the bike is going to be inspected in the near future by the insurance company. I'm preparing for the worst case (total loss) since the bike is older and most likely not worth much in the eyes of an insurance company, so my question is this...
      If the bike is deemed a total loss (claim agent said it's likely) and I buy the bike back, could my California plate be revoked when I get the CHP salvage vehicle inspection? I would not be happy if my dual sport gets turned into a dirt-only salvage vehicle after this whole mess, so I'm wondering if anyone has an answer. Also, does the CHP inspection require a speedo to make salvage vehicle "road worthy" again?

      Looking to see if any of you Nor-Cal guy's want to ride Stonyford on Saturday-3/18?

      Sorry for new duplicate thread to my CA extravaganza thread, but I am still having technical issues not able to reply in some threads even my own threads from my home PC... weird
      so I have dropped the woods ranch option and focusing on SoCal desert riding only for my march 11-19 trip to LA . 
      any SoCal TT desert riding jackals out there?  want to show an experienced good C rider some good desert trails?    hate the whoops, not a fan of giant hill climbs, but I do love the desert.  Never been to Barstow,  got on a great TT ride in Ridgecrest years ago though, been to NorNev lots too.   I will come across the Tehachapi pass from / to I5 my route home on both legs,  so Ridgecrest and Barstow are straight shots for me to get there from I5 vice versa

      I own dual sports because of the convenience of riding to the trails. Because I live in California I own a Suzuki DRZ 400 and DR 350 because they are the cheapest options in this dual sport restrictive state. I want to buy a beta 390 rr simply because I would like a lighter more peppy bike, however, I find it difficult to justify the 10 grand. The reason is not just because 10 grand is a lot of money, but two of the guys I often ride with own KTM 500 exc.  We never race the track but often ride mountain fire trails and narrow trails with occasional steep climbs.  My bikes with the typical carb and exhaust mods will go everywhere their bikes go and just as fast, and sometimes they can keep up with me.  When I ride the KTM's I find the vibration of the engine and stock suspension bouncing me around wares me out as fast as throwing around the weight of the DR's.  Because the KTM's have so much power I ride them with the throttle one quarter to half open on the dirt trails, anything more will throw you off the trail, for the DR's, half to wide open brings the same thrill.  Often I am more than happy to switch back to my old DR's after putting miles on the KTM's.  Is something wrong with me to not enjoy modern technology like others do, or do I just need to spend more time on a lighter more powerful bike to really learn to appreciate what they offer.  I want the Beta, I'm just not sure if its worth it.  Has anyone with similar experience resolved this?
