Hey ADv'ers, you have to take the time to listen to the last Rallyraidio call in its full 32 minutes. Nate was at his very finest, drawing out the color we crave. Pyn was great as usual; a very good story teller. But his Dad, Robin, was awesome for me. He told a big story.
Nate; 'How is the Dakar for your dad, Robin? '
Pyn; 'Well, he's sitting here next to me. Why not ask him? Pull up a chair, Dad...'
Robins responses were music to me.
Thanks Nate, Lyndon and Robin.
A little late, but here are a few shots of someone you might recognise from the tail end of the Eurosport interview feed from the last stage that I found.
ICERIDER just called into my hotel and rang me on my room phone.
We just spent a couple of hours shooting the breeze...awesome!
Thanks Jeff for calling by, it was great to meet you and have a good yarn. The ADVrider network is awesome.
Pyn phoned me as I was leaving work today - great to have a bit of a chat about the Dakar and how it went. Have to say I felt humbled to be talking to someone who finished the Dakar
Also had a quick chat about his future plans as well ..............................need to book my holidays at work and get some ferry tickets sorted
Pyn! It was great to meet up with you and your Dad and most of your great team. I was a bit worried incase you were having an afternoon nap seeing you've just come through the Mother of all rally's followed by the Mother of all rally party's!
Yes it was a great chat, with your guys just getting back from the port after dropping the vehicles off. A very enjoyable account. Everyone on this forum (and knows you) is so impressed by what you have achieved and how you went about it.
Seeing your bunch of guys sitting together in the hotel wearing the team gear made me feel proud of you all. You are a thoroughly professional outfit who went about achieving something verging on a factory performance. You showed that your preparation and execution system including your team's is sound. It seems you have the gift of balancing risk against your riding experience to gain an almost certain good Dakar finish any time you choose to do it in the future. Good luck whichever direction it takes you.
Thanks for taking the time and good luck with your trip home regarding weather etc.
p.s. More $$$ £££ on the way, for your RR calls and anything else.
congrats on finishing your first dakar, pyndon! top 50 no less!
it'd be great to see you state side for an adv meetup, i'm sure all of us in team F5 will be there to greet you with open arms, just waiting to hear all your stories from the race of your life!
the 2013 KTM adventure rally will be in Steamboat CO this year
Congrats! Anytime you want to ride some trails in Virginia, let me know. 950 or 300. I'll clear my schedule for some riding!
Some of his biggest fans who are not family are here in Colorado.
I second the motion for Pyd to head this way. I'll chip in a bike for him to ride:).

I need to ride to Colorado anyway. That would be great.
It won't be a rally bike, just to be clear! Lol

Wait...ferry tickets?!? Oooooh man...
If this is for what I think it is I'd be happy to volunteer for gas pump duty or anything else to help.
Plus I need more beer.
You do know Pebble lives on Jersey don't you so he needs a ferry to do pretty much anything?
Pyn doing the TT now that would be a whole new adventure!!
Love that place!!

LOL !! Thinking of ferries heading south to France and then a long ride east ..................
Product placement. That Michelin sticker on the swingarm paid off.
And there was me thinking it was the 'BikersJersey.com' decal on the rear tank that did it
