Sept. 1 seems a little optimistic, but it would be interesting to see what Pizzolito and Sam have to say via twitter. They're fairly vocal about their travels.

Nothing, as I suspect they would have to fall on their exhaust, or have it stuck somewhere rather painful, but ...............

Standby, the thread will continue soon with a 5th team member and maybe a full team (and bike?) public appearance in a rally before the big one

Just recall that through a LOT of careful thought and hard work I was able to map out the secret route of a few stages of the Dakar race course before the roadbooks were provided to the racers. I used certain skills again this time, because JCR wouldn’t let anyone outside the Honda team in on this testing, including me. I asked if I could tag along and help, but he said no. Since I made the roadbooks for JCR I knew SOME of the places they would ride, but I didn’t know ALL the places and didn’t know their schedule. After I cracked their “schedule” code and got the entertainment I was looking for, I texted Johnny about it. He called me “tricky” then changed what they were doing. Once I know Johnny has plugged all the holes I got through, maybe I’ll share a few more details. BTW, I did nothing illegal, and I don’t have any photos of the bikes.
Most of us here realise your reputation preceeds you!

When HRC pays you "Hush $$$" then the value of your insight, sleuthing, and local knowledge + Rallye knowledge diminishes. My apologies if you thought I was stamping my feet, I'm certain that Hogwild is straight up on their disclosure of the HRC Dakar effort!

PS: Getting killed is very low on my list of things to do!

GO HONDA!

All appreciate the positions and opinion.

The HRC riders and presumably the team as a whole are all contracted and without a doubt they are handcuffed on confidentiality, So regardless of how chatty the guys are on social media, they will say nothing
Similarly anyone who knows anything should or will respect their position, so unfortunately we are going to have to wait until Xmas day for the presents, or until HRC break any news in public or appear in public.
Some technical info will however remain speculative or assumed from what the eye can see.

Can't be too long for more info though???

Should HRC enter Morrocco as a unit, what the KTM and the Aliens, plus Speedbrain and who knows who else, October is going to be a good month!

too old screwed with this post 08-30-2012 at 09:24 PM Reason: And there's more

Well now, that leaves us with plenty of time for wild-ass speculation and brain flatulations doesn't it.
