    Aha, glad to hear it - I actually made that suggestion (way back on page 35) as I found this out the hard way in 2011, having paid up-front and crashed out in spectacular style, I only gained a handful of photos for my €850...

    As we've seen already, paint your bike in striking colours, and the photographers will take your picture anyway!

    Go Pyn!

    Is it just me or does Pyn's bike look immaculate and clean every day in the photos compared to other bikes ? Or are the pics taken first thing before it gets dusty:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl

    Those pegs have got to be painful on the knees and hamstrings on the long liaisons.

    He needs a quick change lowering something thingy. :lol3

    It's hard to believe it's only been four stages, but they've been some of the toughest opening stages on any edition of the Dakar to date. After a marathon 700+km day, we catch up with Lyndon Poskitt for an interactive interview, featuring special guest, and Lyndon's dear friend, Ned Suesse (of 2012 RallyRAIDio fame). Grab a beer (or coffee, depending on when you listen to this) and sit back as we catch up on Lyndon's rally, and listen to Ned and Lyndon compare notes on their experiences.

    Thanks, Lyndon, and thanks Ned for joining us. It's great to have you back on RallyRAIDio!
