    It must be that, that article has a link on ADV, so in the same topic as the pics above the link must be in there, also there was a lot of writing is this bivouac topic about the Honda.

    I am wondering are you talking about the picture above with Manny and the nice looking breasts *edit woman*. Because if you are well let me tell you that ADV box is used for... You see son this how babies are made. Some of them are built for adventure, now what kind of adventure depends on the woman manning it. Some can just be a day trip in and out kinda fun but don't want to go back any time soon. Others are medium rides taking some time to finish, just keep wanting to ride more and more. Can be fun ride but seems it keeps going in a circle and need to get out in to the open. Now others are RTW adventures and have your ups and downs along the way but you feel you need to keep riding that single adventure till the end. But once you open up that ADV box you never know how it is going to turn out and that why we keep riding. NOw if you are not into the ADV box and ride a different way thats cool cuz in the end its all the same

    Spent the all day there! First many thanks to Manny for his Dakar 2012 tool bag I won on his final lottery:D

    I think the Yammy is really at a good starting point and will only get better, I just wish Manuel and his Team to be able to develope and above test it properly in as many races as possible:D

    There was basically all the Italian Rally world there, beginning with the old generation aliens

    Paolo Ceci and Francesco Catanese, just back from the Dakar

    the other guy should be Mirco Miotto, winner of Transanatolia 2012 (also involved in the tragic accident that took Kemal Merkit away)

    Also Botturi was there, th Albania and Transanatolia organisation too.. so plenty of fun:clap

    Does this mean Manny is racing this year, I can't recall him saying anything? :clap

    He was the CCRWC junior champ in 2012 and also the 450 European Baja champ also if my fading memory is right, or nearly so - expecting some very interesting competition in the upcoming series!

    Speedy, Sam and Chalico with unfinished Dakar business, Barreda always with a point to prove, JV and Pain out to prove they really are up there, Mr. Cool Coma to fend off all commers and Cyril, well Cyril is Cyril :lol3

    Will we see any of the Ozzie boys coming up north ? :1drink

    Who's coming? finally got a decent follow-car to watch the rally and take my bike along. I guess Too Old will be in the hotel and not slumming it in a tent.

    Probably at home/in the office following it live on line - good to get close, but whilst they are in racing mode not much interaction as they are all too focussed - will be there for the ceremonial start/prologue and finish though.

    Some "wrongs" to hopefully put right this year :thumb
