I'm tempted to go to this one since I don't think my plans for the Baja in Qatar will work out.
Logistically seen it's VERY convenient for me, plus I have more time to build the new kit on my bike

Steady there
I'm slowly getting the build started, here a teaser. I'll soon start a "build article" as to not steal this thread away

I'd seen you had the wr kit for sale some time ago, I couldn't figure a way to make a wr road legal where I live or I would have snapped it up. Looks like you kept it and will be riding the bike again, best of luck and look forward to the build thread

New kit here. The old one was the 30L KTM Adventure tank and fairing combo. This new one consists of 2x 5L rear tanks and a choice of either 6L, 8L or 13L up front

Mmm, i seem to be listed in the Amateur class.. Doh, just read up on the regs and thought the twin class was open to all, well, it is open to all twins but in amateur class only. Sent a quick mail to Rainer asking for an update

I've entered this

It will be my 1st rally so very excited.

I will be riding my rather abused berg 570(09) and its probably not going to look like the stunning rally bikes i keep looking at

It will be functional rather than pretty.

Since my level is quite low (only started offroading 3 years ago, aged 39 now ) and this will be my first 'dune' bash rallye, my approach is quite the opposite. Ill try to look good instead of aiming for a top 3 finish.

Just got in my new bling That should count for at least 4 hrs less penalty, no?



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Picking up my one piece rear tank in the coming weeks.



Dropped in my engine for a refresh last monday, should be back in a few weeks time;



Aim is to get to a point close to this bike before shipping the bike 11th of March, but less dusty ofcourse ;



But Ill probably settle for the rear tank only for now and build the roadbook frame over the summer...

A friend of mine bought Erik Kofman's ex Dakar RXV450 that does have all the right goodies in place, so there will be at least 2 little 450 twins purring through the stages
