    Traditionally its Doyle who starts the official thread, and sometimes it is frustratingly close to the start of the rally itself.

    Congratulations to the guys who got your letters. Would love to hear how you are prepping for it. :thumb

    I just finished reading you 525Rally build thread and then noticed you had started to put things up for sale and wondered what was going on. Now i know... Congrats !!!! and good luck. What bike are you going to ride ? Keep up posted on the build.




    Any one who can ride an LC8 like that will have fun on a lighter bike. Whats his experience (if any) been like with the Dakar ?




    We are equally eager to see the letter in your name... good luck John and oh, love that RFR of yours.. enjoy the Safari.

    The wheels are a special batch made by Braid for team Xtreme+ to match the stock Polaris hubs & offset, they are tough as

    the tyres are EU Kenda's...............not so tough as, punctures are a daily experience :cry
