Said Scotty:
Arch, if you are interested the rally begins on (85% SURE) on 5 May from Juarez, Mx. ...

Scotty;

This is good news, I and others have sent emails to people listed on the site with no response. How do they expect to get people signed up if the don't advertise or respond to emails?

Do you have any more details on the event you can share?
The biggest thing that would keep me from doing this would be getting my bike there and back. I alreayd need to spend the $$ for the Alcan 500, so this one will be tough to get by my wife!

Great look'n mirror, but how do you use it off road. Looks like it would never hold up in a crash, It would get ripped off in the first get off.
Rad

They are mounted inside heavy aluminum bark busters. When folded they are pretty much out of the way. As to crash worthiness I can't say....Yet. I think (if folded) they have a decent chance of survival, though I'm sure they'll eventually get scuffed up. We have plenty of tight woods riding here that I will test them on. I 'll post some pictures later.

I had to post this for a friend of mine and lurker on the site in order to try to bring him out amongst the general population.

The pic was taken right after a trip over the bars in one of those soft spots you find at the transition of SOME dunes on the upwind side, TOTALLY like the shot from the 2003 DAKAR when P.G. Lundmark did the same.

I think he had his bell rung just a little as he picked up his bike and pretty much screwed the throttle wide open and just SUNK it. !

cheers
