Yeah, a factory made Diesel stick shift land cruiser that is not manufactured for use in the USA, try getting a tag for that.

I can weld together a bunch of shit, and propel it with junkyard crap from the 1970s, no problem, here is your tag, have a nice day. But import something cool, made in a factory, designed by engineers, that you can't buy over here, no furking way man, get your wallet out.

Bastards...

But, he would have been following orders, and would never have had the chance to ride for his own (overall) win.

I also don't think this place would have become quite what it is today without Jonah and RallyPanAm crusading to put a privateer on the podium. It was a David and Goliath story that really captured people's imagination and passion here.


Thanks, Guys.

The (one) kitted EXC they ran in '11 still had KTM on the cases.
Anyone notice if Cyril still has the "MAREK" covers on the motor that he got from Dabrowski?

I still have a couple weeks left before I see my hubby. It's been 2 weeks since I've even spoke to him. Dakar is a love/hate relationship for me.

After all that he came in 16th for the day and holds 15th position overall.
All other Aussies did extremely well today too, they all came in not far from each other. So we are kicking arse over there this year.


Tough day at the office!

The Aussie's are massively impressive this year. I hope they keep coming back, they'll launch one into the top ten.

I think it's a love/hate relationship for most of us.

In the occasional mention of racers we admire and miss, like Jonah Street, I haven't seen mentioned Chris Blais. He was on the podium when I started to hear about Dakar. He augured in,training in the Nevada desert, nothing much as I recall. But that's how it can go. Here's to you, Chris.

Mass attack on HRC

Well, good morning not been too many Ozzies around?

The knives have been being sharpened for months and have been out over the last days – last night we saw a “Psycho” style attack on HRC
Now the story or rumour commenced on real time ADV from an external source – was that source speculgating, or was it well founded?
It was rather quick and Helder seemed to be some way from home, no hint of the issue in the subsequent reporting by Helder – has anyone been out to check on the bush, was it on fire?
So is this a non story and a few Red faces guilty of a feeding frenzy on HRC, or a cover up – I’m sure the speculation will continue.
One thing for sure though is that Honda have, are still and will continue in attracting a lot of focus They say there is no such thing as bad publicity, but sometimes you are not so sure?
Let’s backtrack and think about what they have achieved from a standing start. Love them or hate them for their methodical approach, when you are spending so much money a corporation like Honda, or any other for that matter, will do it by the book, not the seat of the pants.
Yes there will be mistakes and learning – they call that R&D and I think if we are all honest this is what this Dakar was about for HRC – perhaps we have been expecting too much? – but we have seem glimpses. Also don't forget that they lost their 2nd and 3rd riders a month before the event - a big hit for them and the guys.
Realtime reporting can be a harsh bedfellow, but it will be interesting to see where they are in 3, 6 9 and 12 months.
Considering the time KTM and Speedbrain have had to develop their efforts, this is not unreasonable?


------Then maybe you can kick the shit out of them
