I too carry a roll of rescue tape, a bit of Gorilla 100mph tape, nylon and SS zip ties and a tube of liquide metal (JB Weld) in each of my on-bike tool kits. Doesn't take much room; very, very useful when needed.

So Inmates.. If you could only pack one or the other, Wire ties? or Duct tape? What would it be?
duct tape.

Plenty of uses, but one in particular stands out. We were deep in Baja Sur on a surf trip, and the fan belt gave out. It took the entire roll of duct tape to get running again, but it worked.

Now that I'm older and wiser, I carry both, in addition to JBWeld, etc etc.

I actually thought that 175km/hr seemed like a low speed. I really expected them to be closer to 200-210, especially with the stupid engines they have in those. They really are asthmatic with those restrictors hey?
Interesting that Mark Miller thinks the restrictor would be smaller if they ran to FIA specs, and the car would be faster. Need to research those rules I think. Anyone got a link to them?

Me too, PynGyver fork repair pix! We need the powerful F5orce to contact the right people inter-bivvy to take spy pix, if Lyndon is too tired to do it. My bet is Pyn did take pix.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Classic! Using a shovel to clean out your car. Guessing someone went swimming in the not so dry river beds.

We didn't have an interview planned, but I was able to catch Lyndon on his call in and have a chat -- glad I did! Go "Inside the Helmet" as Lyndon talks about what was going through his mind both out on the piste, and at the end of the stage. Brilliant stuff.

---------------------------

Public Radio fundraising notice: (Thanks to those who have already chipped in! We're about 3/4 to our goal.)

Last year, through the generosity of the listeners, we were able to cover the cost of Neduro's phone bill for the communication costs to RallyRAIDio and ADVRider throughout the Dakar. If you've enjoyed Lyndon's call ins and interviews on this edition, consider chipping in a few $$, € €, or ££ toward the cause. Many hands make light work, and based on our experience with Ned last year, the tab will run handily into 4-digit territory (sans decimals). It would be wonderful if we could take this burden off of Lyndon's shoulders.

For those so inclined,


RallyRAIDio @ g mail . com (no spaces) is the RallyRAIDio email addy to which paypal can be sent.


Thanks for your support.
Brilliant
