Jabroka,

As always I envy your ability to see this first hand. Thanks for the photos. Feel free to post more or write about your impressions.

Since our bikes are essentially derived from this event, it's always fun to revisit the drama and phenomenal human commitment the occurs here every year.

I'm starting to like you.
The boot sits way lower, but still, I'll consider hangin' a bit of sheet metal there.
It can't crash on it, cause there are crashbars on the bike.
It already has a back movement limiter.

This is a joke, too? Or something we do not understand?

Besides the joke, I meant "Show us your bike, show us some pictures of you travelling through Latvia, the country seems interesting". Sheesh.

I'm not traveling. I do not like long distance monotonous ride. I ride in the woods weekends only. My zinger DR750 probably will not get to point B in the journey. I am no longer young and not ride without company. No photos. My bike is almost original (with large jets (130) and short springs in the flap). And reworked footrests. _ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4Qb5..._order&list=UL

I sold the 800 because I was a Fool (and trying to be responsible as bought my daughter a car with the money)

I think it will return to me in a year or so though

Anyways have a cute little 750 now like nejauks,(apologize to those who have already seen pic 10 times )
PS, wasnt trying to be mean Dino and you can come ride her anytime you like


PS, keeping with the Dakar dug this up from an old post theme
