I am waiting for test results from two elite riders to see if they will race it, being so close to Dak, only factory riders can afford to change towers. At least one ATV rider will race it (last years forth place ) so whatever happens with the elite ones, valuable data will be gathered. Next week I will have a better idea because it's a very long shot after next week. Even for factories to manage, but because it is the rider's call, they may be able to switch equipment (compared to privateers were that is not possible). EDIT: I am with Troy on the GasGas being a beautiful bike. imo it looks way sexier than most Rally bikes on the field. This wall-e look is amazing :huh D.
