You should have seen the Good Ol NASCAR boys the first time the Aussie Tin Top Racer (Marcos Ambrose) tried to share it with the Team.

Never laughed so much before or since.

Great protein content.

I found a couple more from 2009 Condo 750.
I notice Paul has a few of my pics on his site already ... nice of him to ask.

Howdi Stagehand,
Its no biggie mate.
I don't mind people having my pics, if the use is suitable (non commercial), AND when they ask; 9.5 times out of 10 its a yes help yourself. If they want the Hi-res originals then we can talk.

I do get pissed when people help themselves without asking but I am getting pretty good at take downs. Embedded watermarks are gold. I could write a novel...

Anyway, Here she is in the rain...

Quinn Cody OUT of the 2012 Australasian Safari

Very unexpected news so close to the Safari
Sad to here Quinn is out to injury only 2 weeks out but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Dakar Vetren Ruben Faria will take his place on the CPW Safari Team

Here is Transmoto's Report:

http://www.transmoto.com.au/publish/...Ruben-Faria-In






That really is a bummer for Quinn...

I will be very interested to see how Faria goes... have been really impressed with his riding style (speed/attack) since seeing some of his onboard footage on the 450 RR from back in the 2011 Dakar.

Bearing in mind that at DAKAR he has always been in the very clear position, to follow instructions and ride as designated #2/water carrier to Cyril... I think we've never seen the young colt given his reigns to run at a full gallop.

When Rueben turns up at the Safari, there is likely to be no such impedement in place? (CPW Don ? ) So after dialling himself into the new bike and the terrain/roadbook... he will be ostensibly master of his own fate?!

recalling some of that footage where he was hacking/picking/finding his way through the loose sand/gravel and undergrowth of the Argentine high desert up by Fiambala... I think his "technical terrain/use your head scrub navigation" could serve him well in the West aussie conditions. With some tips on the roadbook from Cyril (last year) Earlymark and some guidance from the CPW crew... it could be a real good thing!

I would mark Faria as a strong chance to do well for an overseas debutant... he has a somewhat "lower profile" that that of his #1 team mate (no expectations or bulleseye on his back)... yet maybe not as "gas it and go" as the US rider he replaces... so I think I'll earmark Rueben to be inside top ten stage times from the get go... Running top 5 overall by leg four and and outside shot at a podium.

For that reason I give Faria slightly better odds than I gave on Quinn;

4: (of) 6 riders with a solid chance of the podium. He is 1: (in) 7 riders who have a shot for a solid top five placing, but in my estimation only 15:1 chance to take the overall moto win.

That sucks, was hoping to meet Quinn, seems like a nice guy from what I've heard and read. Anyhow, I will meet Ruben, again. He may soon get the impression that I'm stalking him
