F2r is a little banged up, but still works great.



And it went through a downpour and didn't leak a drop. Really happy with it.

Well, you were not the first to land a bike on top of a F2r. This guy tried it with a R1200GS Adventure. The crossbar and the handlebar clamp gave up but the roadbook is ready to rock and roll : That's the advantage of keeping the motor inside and not sticking out like the MD design.

Honesty will get you nowhere, Carlos.








Can't wait to use my F2R for my ride next month.

Well I don't know the guy who makes them, so I'll plug away.

I do like that the motor is inside. Nice design, although someone asked why I had a toaster-oven on the front of my bike.

it might be exspensive ,but all the "home built " rally bikes would be up there too if you could count the endless hours people put into building a rally bike.

The benefit of buying a "purpose built" one buy a manufacturer is they did all the testing and learning for you.

...and going by the number of times I had to do things a few times to get them right, that 'Prillia is dirt cheap!! All those weekends in the uninsulated tin shed sweating through 43DegC days could have been avoided by a couple of weekends on overtime for work and simply buying the finished product. (Of course I love the building process and would want mine in kitset form )

Dakar World Tour .. Us Not Included???

Better start lookin at 450s

Bikes : towards 450cc for all
The movement adopted in the 2010 edition will continue in the bike category. The perspective of a field made up of bikes with a maximum power limit of 450cc has convinced several constructors to increase their involvement in the rally-raid discipline.
• As already announced, as from 2011, the riders featured in A.S.O.'s Elite list will all be obliged to ride on vehicles whose power does not exceed 450cc.
• The number of engines authorised will be 3.
• All other riders are free to choose their type of bike.
• For the Dakar 2012, all riders taking part must ride a 450cc bike.
Cars : a better balance between diesel and petrol (gasoline)
In 2010, A.S.O. decided to increase the air intake on petrol (i.e. gasoline) engines to a diameter of 34 mm. The desired goal was clear: to strike the best balance possible between the two types of engine currently used in all-terrain rallying, petrol (i.e. gasoline) and diesel. For the Dakar 2011, all the drivers from all the teams (professionals or amateurs) will be able to take advantage of this measure.
Furthermore, teams running petrol-powered vehicles will be able to fit 6-speed gearboxes, in contrast to professional teams running diesel-powered vehicles, who will still have to use 5-speed gearboxes.
Navigation : priority for the road-book
For several years, the Dakar rally's teams have been making modifications to reduce the influence of GPS and place the emphasis on reading of the road-book. Pure navigation skill is the very essence of the rally-raid discipline. For 2011, the changes will concern the way point markers (WPM) that the competitors must find. Last year, the competitors were guided by their instruments when they reached a distance of 3 kilometres from the WPM. In 2011, the distance required to trigger the GPS will be reduced to 400 metres.
