    Just got a newletter from Jorge Velayos, they signed an agreement that Yamaha France will now be selling and representing their kits in France. Good news for them as they should have a serious medal contender with David Frétigné now that the big boys will all be on 450s.

    The letter even specifically mentioned our ADV buddies Facu, Jenny and Charlie/ Rally Panam. :thumb

    If Jonah doesn't go, I'll be rooting for Fretigne'!!!!

    I think he is as good or better than Coma or Despres

    Guess we'll see....:freaky

    that JVO kit is very well designed and well thought out.
    Much better than the old Yamaha France kit (bike looked like a piglet)

    I really like this kit. It seems that JVO tried to copy the setup of a 690 RFR wherever they could. Here's the WR we built for Neil Ringdahl.

    fun fun

    Don't know what's up, Nitro, but we can get the kits no problem. I could ship one to SA from the USA for you.

    Nitro, consider what Charlie has said, he gets a really good price, I think you might find it more cost effective that way.:deal

    Anyway how goes it with your rally prep? Have you decided what you would like to do first?

    Cheers

    @Bluebull

    i sent charlie an email.

    Im looking to start with maybe the Taureg Rally. Im probably going to do mainly African rally for now.
    It is a bit cheaper to fly up Africa than across the sea

    Im a bit worried about navagtion. I know you went to the Usa with charlie to train.

    But ill chat with a guy Ingo Walshmuit from Namabia, he did dakar 2009.

    Any idea who is going to head up the Yamaha racing team in 2011, now that Fretigne has gone over to BMW/Hus??

    Helder Rodrigues will be the top Yamaha rider I think, his support comes from Red Bull & TMN rather than Yamaha France

    Maybe Olivier Pain as the main Yamaha France guy :dunno
