    great clip
    music is very similar to that used in this year's Dakar; that was by Audiomachine.
    Yes, a potentially gay observation, but when overlaid with the Dakar riding clips, it was truly EPIC !

    Thought I'd share a picture of my air filter after the run to the centre. I know young Joes filter resembled a small hedgehog or similar.
    The Uni filter seems to have pulled up ok.
    Different theories as to sand and dust transfer with standard sidecovers or whether being bogged down in the dunes fills ya airfilter. Or as Vince calls it being a "turkey" burying the rear tyre to park the bike :rofl

    Kind of hard to believe that it fell from the stratosphere onto the Desert floor at however many KPH and maintained it's shape and structural integrity as it appears to have in the pic on impact , I'd have thought it would be a mangled mess had it fallen from space . I have no real clue what it is without closer and clearer inspection .
