I was a bit bored this afternoon and started to put all Rallies and dates I know of in a Google Callendar.
Apparently the place to be on October the 12th to 14th is Morocco.
Three Rallies pass thru the country

Frightening - it's 50 centigrade and more out there at this time of the year, what was he doing out there on his own?

At the press conference HRC talked about the Oil Libiya and Mergouza - they are back to back, so a mini Dakar if it happens - throw in Egypt for half the team and it's a busy few weeks

I was there for the Rally Morocco last October and it was a good time. Hoping to get back this October and follow more closely on a bike.

Stefan, You forgot about 'Desafio Inca' in Peru Oct 3-6, 2013! I will be leading a moto tour to go spectate. Don't miss it, many of the Dakar greats will be there fine tuning for Dakar 2014 (and access to them is better than at the actual Dakar!).

Toby

I'll dig out some details for you, but rest assured there are a fair few differences between a 450 Rally motor and a SX-f motor. I have seen both close-up and personal, including the insides, but even better I know someone that has grafted a 450 Rally motor into an XC-f frame. (Actually it's for sale at the moment and I'll find a link to it for you). There are many considerations that the average punter that doesn't have the "hands on experience" wouldn't even think of.

This may be of no help to you Aussie folks but there's a pretty Rally ready bike for sale here.

I don't see why it would be "no help". I know of two people in Oz that bought their Rally bikes from overseas and imported them. Lyndon's one would have to be a good one to get so if someone in Oz wants it, go for it!

No joke! The desert is truly a hostile enviroment........ any time of year.

Thanks for asking Dread. It was quite a bad break unfortunately, requiring a bone graft to replace the top of my crushed tibia. Have been doing physio every day for 3 months straight. While I'm still on one crutch, I can limp around without one now for a bit. More importantly I'm riding, albeit not very far or for very long

Next steps are to build my muscle up so I can have this lot removed in a second op, hopefully before the end of the year.

Neil, I had an expert look at your x-ray. His special equipment brought a serious problem into view. That upper bone has a terrible disease forming just above the joint. You can see it in the shadows. It's pretty expensive to have that treated. Do you think you can be cured?
