Well I don't know anything about that and don't really care anyway, just thought someone might be interested in a cheap rallye bike.

I won't bother in future then.

hi no reflection on you at all, I am sure your post is of interest to others, besides other ebay rallye bikes will not be from the same source.

Yeah, me curious too... always entertaining to read about some post event "rule book" racing... the always just as enthralling (anti)climactic battle for bragging rights to the minor(minor) placings... as resolved on the jury room floor...

Let's see now; Stan Watt...? Isn't he the old codger (ahem... I mean gentleman ) from Scotland who's about 65 years old and ridden like a hundred Six Days or something... Didn't he DNF the 2009 Dakar...?

And the other bloke...?

Now over to our (was) "on the spot reporter"; SafariBerg...

Stan Watt of Frontrow GB Dakar team

http://www.frontrowgb.com/home.html

Stan WAS running in top 20 about 16-17 ish spot for all the rallye UNTIL a disputed missed GPS point, protest & counter protest, invloved broken ERTF GPS, judges accepted true account of events UNTIL counter protest = 4 hr penalty and final finish in about 34th spot

poor sportsmanship

beaten by rule playing not riding skill

Somehow, that riding skill vs rule book thang now seems so err well 1930s? I wish it was still around, though. For example, it would be so pleasant to enjoy a F1 race as just that a race - without appeals, stewards port race rulings et al!

I watched the video interview on the link... he's not the fellow I was thinking of... but seems like a nice bloke... good rider...

A shame about the GPS/waypoint mix up... then all the appeal and counter protest stuff... takes a bit of the "shine" off it for all concerned eh?

Hopefully Stan can make a fist of it in 2010...

You're thinking of Robbie Allan. He ran in '07, I think.

Cool bike, Fant'Easy - really like the Lucky Explorer logo on the tank! Would make a great t-shirt (for those who owned the bike - the rest of us would just look like posers)

Hi Fant'Easy,

A few question about rally bikes.

Why do most rally bike have the header run under the frame? Why do most exhaust piont up? Why do most skid plate look like they are made to carry fluid? Its a oil resivor or for water? Thanks Ben
