Ah, the prefect excuse to start watching this thread - in!

Hi Teh' - not sure if you've heard from Rainer yet? - but as far as I'm aware, the Twins run the same roadbook as the Amateur motos rather than the Profi motos - basically because the Profi class are sent down (and up!) some very tight nadgery specials, plus they have additional checks/waypoints at the top of some pretty steep and soft dunes... which I guess the organisation feel are just too much on a larger/heavier bike?

I think because so many riders are on enduro (or at least converted enduro) machines these days, they make the Profi route hard for those riders... That said, you could enter the Profi on a 660/690RR for example, which is no more manageable than a 950 Enduro for example, so I'm sure if you ask the organisation you could run the Profi roadbook on a Twin if you really want too... but having done this event myself on an XR650R rally bike in 2008 (it is excellent by the way, plenty of sand, and big dunes too!), I was glad not to be on anything bigger in the Profi group...

Duh - read the whole thread Morgan! - I see you are on an Aprilia RXV Rallye... (I thought you might have been on a 950SE or HP2) you shouldn't have any trouble on the Profi route on that!!!

Have fun!

Rally Raid Sweden

From Sweden will it this year be a team of 16 riders (well 15 swedes and 1 norwegian) we will use Scandinavian Offroad Service for service and transport.

It's a mix of rookies and a riders who are there for second and third time, some targets top 10 positions and some are more focused to reach the top of Hause dune on wheels.

See you in Alméria

This is little about how the bike will look but their are thongs to do so will update later with more pics.
be sure to loctite the threaded rods that thread into the frame clamps for the raid tanks. also bring a spare fuel pump assembly and make sure you filter the gas when putting it into the bike. make sure your fuel pump has a good pickup filter too. I am hashing out a fuel pump setup that will be external to the tank so it can be serviced without losing any fuel.

It will be very tight and you will not make day 3 without a few extra liters, you can add a bottle of 1-1.5 liter left side under rear fender I have a waterbottle in that place.

I have the original front tank + 4 liters in rear subframe + 5 liter Meca tank on right side

Just a note baldrick... the ORGA take a dim view of carrying fuel on person (backpacks, on belt etc.) for obvious reasons... people have done it (do it)... but having personally seen the lower back/abdomen and nether regions of a poor bastard who had a two liter PET bottle (type COKE/softdrink) split in his backpack and dowse his lower half in fuel in 40 degree heat...

It doesn't even have to catch fire (though a distinct possibility) to do some serios damage. Riding in petrol fumes/damp clothing... not a big hit on anyones list.

So if you gonna carry an extra fuel reservior anywhere on the bike, an approved type container mounted securely somewhere that you can strap on then fill with if needed... I would strongly recomended. The "she'll be right" coke bottle/oil bottle solutions, while quick/easy/cheap... usually wind up AFU.

The water bottle under the rear fender is a good idea i will have a look at that.

It would give me space for another 2.5 ltrs of fuel.

Point taken about carrying in back pack
I will be carrying any extra fuel in the smaller part of a chainsaw dualfuel can, we use these at work and very tough. I will carry my kriega bag in my back pack and strap the can on the rear fender when i need to.

I went empty on day 3, 500m before our petrol stop. 690enduroR with standard 12L tank. The rest of the days no problem.
