Would even consider buying a bike that would have been used in the previous 2013 rally (and maybe stored there) - to make logistics easier? I'm from Ontario Canada.

Good luck!!!!
You can always give me a call to get some info. Number is on the RMS website.

The organizer says: 160km of mixed terrain. I left my big Acerbis tank at home and sent the bike with a Clarke tank good for about 180km if I am lucky. In March I'll find out whether I made a mistake!

fun fun

Charlie you should be fine with 180km range, but dont forget what I told you, never pass an open gas station, stop and top off because the fuel stations on the roadbook may be closed or have run out of gas.

Like Åmme told before RRS Rally Raid Sweden will come this year with more crazy people who want to feel the passion for the dunes. Also Carl Hagenblad will try his luck this time but his buddie Sawano will stay at home with his family and his new kid. Two guys who rode Tuareg last year Hasse Jiredal and Mattias Talonen has new bikes Husaberg 570 almost identical to this year Swedish Dakar Rider Tomas Berglund bike. I will take a break but my dream of standing by the start line second time will live. Here is some of picture and a link to my pictures from 2012 Tuareg! :)

I Marocco you needed absolutly minimum 14 liter fuel tank for KTM 530 or Husaberg 570 I used stock front tank and subframe tank and a 5 liter Meca side tank on my 570, some other 570 only have stock and subframe tank and they there short of fuel on one stage.

KTM 530 with 14 liter there on the limit some made it some run out of fuel on the same stage.
