18:41 Bikes: Duclos breaks down?
The French Sherco rider has been at a standstill, just before the 341-km point, for almost one hour. The bike and rider are just off to the side of the tracks in an earthy zone.

18:37 Bikes: Caselli in trouble
The leader of the bike special, American Kurt Caselli, has ground to a halt after 396 km, apparently due to engine problems.

Just crazy to follow the lead of one of the all time best selling bikes. It's as silly as wanting to ride like CD.:)

I love the "Struggles" segment that FR4 does...man you really feel the dakar spirit watching these even when you cant understand.

Do you think the amount of abuse Carlton is getting on twitter about EuroPubGames scheduling is starting to get to him?

Haha, good point. I never had KTM down as one to follow the crowd though.

Good for you. I adored my 690 as well, I just never trusted it! I'm sure I was just unlucky though.

I agree because I was unhappy with the Yammie 1200XTZ (and the 660).



I would much rather have an old France Dakar WR on the street than street up a decent bike...




Although the Tenere 1200 has grown on me, especially after riding it!

They ain't for everyone.

Is Kurt still in the lead? he's dropped off my radar again.
