He's famous in Europe - In general way more folks over there are able to name/recognize ski-jumpers, not many will be able to tell you one dessert racer...

Manuel may have to go ask Lyndon how to phone in to RallyRAIDio.

Yes in the tough parts it centainly makes it easier, but what abou reliability? IS it as much reliable as a normal clutch?

IMHO, yes. I put 35,000miles on a Rekluse in my KTM990 (LC8 engine), 9,000 miles with a Rekluse in my Aprilia RXV550 and 2,000 brutal miles so far on my FE390 with EXP. The new EXP is very rugged.

I think strategy will be dictated by relative positions. If you're alone at the front, change an engine to lessen risk. If its all super close, don't give up the 15 minutes.
