    Just a quick note of recognition to a guy that has more guts than I can make sense of. Ben Grabham rode the Dakar just months after breaking his back hitting a roo at some 150 kph.

    He finished the Dakar in a remarkable 14th position. Unbelievable. :clap:clap

    Racing forum would be more appropriate, not really LC8/Orange Crush related.

    I knew he was in the Dakar but didn't realize he'd finished that high.

    Anyhow, he's no slouch on a 2-stroke either:
