    Last bike update for anyone was 1730L. In the cars @ 1750L.

    They're on the same time zone as us (EST), so I wonder if the tracking is fubar.

    :cryFrom Rally Raid Canada about Don Hatton 150

    Hit by a truck in the dark. Bike broken in two. No GPS. Stuck out in the dark. People are with him. He can barely talk. Afraid he might have broken his leg. 12 miles from the end of the Special.
