    HRC invents their own version of Twitter and then tests it, only to find out they should use the regular Twitter.

    After our similar problems with Hondas in 2009, I did email and leave messages for Quinn about maybe bringing more fuel. He didn't, but found out that he needed a bigger tank a few stages into it. (He was using a motor built to Baja 1000 specs in a Honda Europe bike with fuel capacity designed for a much more unmodified motor.) But, you guys are the only ones who listen to my rants. (You do, don't you?)

    As discussed on twitter he seems to have ridden back to bivvy to collect a new set of gloves after he had lent his other set to a guy with a moustache that was busy mounting a new Pirelli rear.


    In doing so he crossed start twice and will not collect any points but goes to jail straight away.

    A larger front tank.

    Which was also necessary as Henk H was 2 cheap to return the front tanks that were wrongly ordered, 2 small, and lay out the money to buy new tanks.

    Check the "great" way the front tanks match with the fairing... Pffff. Breaks my heart.
