Goes by "nry" here (Too lazy to capitalise it, apparently) and known to his mum as Neil. Seems a little unstable. Will hide the sharp knives around the rally camp, if further analysis deems it necessary. I expect a top 10 finish from him. Nothing less or he's out the team.
Hmmm I'd like to join your team but I cannot, I've formed my own team just now and I'm calling it Team Hellman Viking.
I'm also imposing a Malle moto type race on myself so no one is allowed to touch or even look at my bike. I can take two boxes ....so I shall take one.. And it will be empty.
At the moment I have no boxes if anyone wants to get me one from Decathalon in Europe that would be a start.


Michael you should come even if only to not touch or look at my bike. (Just laugh at me).
I need some bits too.



My bike as it has been for the last year give or take. The nav bracket is a composite of plasticine and cardboard I'm a big fan of these materials.. and straws.

Top ten finish should be easy because I have created a small class in my mind and I'm pretty much the only one in it.

Must go, just noticed my daughters shoes (in the picture) I need to polish them for school tomorrow !

You're not escaping that easily.
Is the hover bike an X or an R?
And what's Okidoke doing? Can you ask him to post some of his Condo pics here of the Team members in action?

Big news as well - another Team member just joined....
ADVrider F5er and Safari regular, Pete "2Volts" is joining us from his WA lair. He's offered a 4wd ute as the second service vehicle. Pete rides a WR450 that he's refining into a strong rally machine. Plus he's a confirmed entry. Really excellent to have another of the 2013 Safari ADV Tour crew join the team. It's like old home week.

Putting the early bird entry in was the easy bit. Like one step over the line. Now it seems like I've jumped right in. Anyway, it's all go from here.

It's a scary first step, handing over the first thousand, isn't it mate? Like committing to an arranged marriage.

10 riders so far. That's what you call a TEAM. We're gonna need a bigger boat truck.

Exciting news (at least I think so).....Sequent has found a proper, real, decent, "Please Sir, can I have some more?", fair dinkum Chef, who likes motorcycles (so there'll be a keen interest in being part of the team). Welcome, Sven, official feeder of the masses.
