I'm very glad to see Quinn in the mix (I guess that sounds a bit crazy from a guy who bleeds ORANGE)! I have not seen anything on how the Honda motor is holding up; I guess that's a good thing! GO Quinn Cody!

Coma: I'm very disappointed in today’s performance, were you the one leading the lambs to the slaughter house?

Simon: I hope all is well; I'm keeping the fingers crossed!

Orfanos is shown with 15 hours penalty, he has no idea why, he will talk to the judges any time and I'll post an update when I get the info...


205ed, nothing to see here move along...

Yeah your next post shed some light on the matter but I had posted already. You are not cool, I take it back.

All points well taken, Troy!

I hope we see something like the WR250R in the 450 class. I rode one of those in OZ for quite a while this October, absolutely pinned the poor thing, it got no maintenance and wanted none. Liked it pretty well, too, although it needed more power.

My experience is that existing 450s hold up pretty well for light D/S and enduro use. Dakar is not light D/S nor enduro. It takes a really hardcore machine to hold up to the frontrunners level of abuse. I hope we'll get trickle down technology that makes for very bombproof machines at my level of use, but given how fast those guys are going, I'm not sure that's what we'll see.

I predict "three-off" motors with white metal bearings, Beryllium seats, etc. This helps the factory guys stay at the front... Time will tell.
