They've gotten a bit bigger since we started this stuff...

We're getting to watch PM's kids grow up right on ADVrider.

Pretty soon they will be doing rally's, then....

Frans Verhoeven is using a Rekluse clutch? Or is it only the clutch cover?
IS this usual in rally bikes?

But this year, the rest doesn't come until Day 9, and the first half is arguably more punishing to motors than last year's.

Last year, it looks like only four of the top 20 finishers on motos did it on one motor.

What do you think this year's game plan is? Hope it make it to the rest day, and change it earlier if it's gets dodgy? If guys like Cyril still find themselves several minutes behind the leader, will they do what they can to stick with one engine, and avoid the penalty?
I'll put this out there again, now that EuroSport is over, and Manuel's mousse has been sorted.

Heard back from Scott and Dave - they said send #98 Manuel Lucchese over to the Freedom Rally truck and they can hook him up!!! Please get that message to Manuel guys! I don't have his contact info.

Rekluse auto-clutches are getting very popular in racing especially the newer EXP version. Seen a few so far on Dakar bikes, it definitely reduces rider workload in tough terrain. I love mine on my Berg FE390.
